Pamela Adelaide Genevieve Wyndham was the daughter of Hon. Percy Scawen Wyndham and Madeline Caroline Frances Eden Campbell. She married, firstly, Edward Priaulx Tennant, 1st Baron Glenconner, son of Sir Charles Tennant, 1st Bt. and Emma Winsloe, on 11 July 1895. She married, secondly, Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey of Fallodon, son of Lt.-Col. George Henry Grey and Harriet Jane Pearson, on 2 June 1922. She died on 18 November 1928.
Even though Harry Cust was in love with her and wanted to marry, in 1893 he was forced to marry Nina Welby-Gregory. As a result Nina Cust was ostracized by the Souls, a group to which Harry Cust and Pamela Wyndham belonged.
The Souls were a small, loosely-knit but distinctive social group in England, from 1885 to about 1920. Their members included many of the most distinguished English politicians and intellectuals.
The group formed as a response to the damper on social life caused by the political tension of the Irish Home Rule debate. Existing social circles were rent by angry arguments between proponents and opponents of the Gladstone ministry's efforts in 1886 to bring about full Home Rule. Many people in society wanted a salon where they could meet without fighting about politics.
The name of the group was bestowed by Lord Charles Beresford, who is quoted as having said "You all sit and talk about each others' souls — I shall call you the 'Souls'".
Pamela's greatest gift was for lively literary expression and, apart from her letters being very entertaining, she published a number of books. In 1895 she married Edward Tennant; they led a consciously simple life till 1920 when Edward Tennant, 1st Baron Glenconner, died.
Two years later she married her late husband's great friend, Sir Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey of Falloden, who had already lived with them for some years.
Pamela was the 5th great granddaughter of King Charles II.
