John died before his father so was never a Viscount. The 5th Viscount was John's younger brother Richard.

Interested to receive full details of this man : his naval career, cause of death, and possible title as 5th. Viscount Chetwynd.

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
