Jewell Adopted The Cameron Name



From Bear Alley blog, The Man With The Expanding Name:

"...Jewell adopted the name Cameron by deed-poll and became known as Louis Charles Richard Duncombe-Jewell Cameron. But just to confuse matters further he dropped Louis as a first name and became Ludovick. As Ludovick Cameron he claimed to be the chieftain of Erracht, where the local clan Cameron raised the 79th or Cameron Highlanders."
