ALEXANDER WILSON

1893 - 1963

Writing as: Michael Chesney, Alexander Wilson


According to the bio on Wikipedia: "Alexander "Alec" Joseph Patrick Wilson (24 October 1893 – 4 April 1963) was an English writer, spy and MI6 officer. He wrote under the names Alexander Wilson, Geoffrey Spencer, Gregory Wilson, and Michael Chesney. After his death his family discovered that he had been a serial polygamist who had lied to many people. As of 2018, documents that could shed light on his activities remain classified as "sensitive" by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, under section 3(4) of the Public Records Act 1958. The effect of his deceptions on his wives and descendants were dramatised in the 2018 BBC miniseries Mrs Wilson, in which his granddaughter, actress Ruth Wilson, portrayed her grandmother, Wilson's third wife, Alison."
