Thomas Henry Brand, 4th Viscount Hampden CMG was a UK financier who attended the 1961 Bilderberg


Son of Thomas Walter Brand, 3rd Viscount Hampden, and nephew of Robert Henry Brand, who played a large role in the deep state Milner Group, possibly as even as leader after 1940. Robert put Thomas in charge of Lazard 1942-44, and took Thomas with him to Washington when he went to Washington.[1]


In 1931 he became Managing Director of Lazard Brothers & Co. During the Second World War he served as Chief Executive Officer on the British side of the Combined Production and Resources Board, from 1942 to 1944, then from 1944 to 1945 was Chairman of Supplies for Liberated Areas Official Committee. He was appointed CMG in 1943, and in 1953 and 1954 was Chairman of the Issuing Houses Association. He succeeded to his father's titles in 1958 and in 1965 became Chairman of Lazards.[2]


After Hampden's death on 17 October 1965 his brother David succeeded as Viscount Hampden, while his two surviving daughters were left as co-heiresses to the Barony of Dacre, which thus went into abeyance. However, the abeyance was terminated in 1970 in favour of his elder surviving daughter Rachel Douglas-Home, 27th Baroness Dacre.[2]
