Agatha Christie Family
James “Jimmy” Watts (1878 - 1957) was the husband of Madge Miller and the father of Jack Watts. He was the brother-in-law of Agatha Christie. His family lived at Abney Hall and also owned another property just 14 miles away called Upper House. Agatha Christie visited and stayed at both places on various occasions when she visited her sister. Christie dedicated her novels The A.B.C. Murders (1936) and Hercule Poirot's Christmas (1938) to him.
James "Jack" Watts (22 August 1903 – 7 July 1961) was a Conservative party politician in the United Kingdom. He was elected at the 1959 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Manchester Moss Side, but died in office two years later, aged 57. Dame Agatha Christie, who was his mother Madge's sister, dedicated several books to him, including The Secret of Chimneys (1925).---------------------------------------------Louis Montant “Monty” Miller (1880-1929) was the brother of Agatha Christie. Always referred to as "Monty" in the family, he was, like Madge, much older than Agatha. Monty was born in Morristown, New Jersey when his parents were there on a visit to the United States. Of Monty, Christie said: "In every family, there is usually one member who is a source of trouble and worry. My brother Monty was ours. Until the day of his death, he was always causing someone a headache. I have often wondered, looking back, whether there is any niche in life where Monty would have fitted in. He would certainly have been all right if he had been born [Mad King] Ludwig II of Bavaria."---------------------------------------------Rosalind Margaret Clarissa Hicks (formerly Prichard, née Christie; 5 August 1919 – 28 October 2004) was the only child of author Agatha Christie. Rosalind married Major Hubert de Burr Prichard (14 May 1907 – 16 August 1944), son of Colonel Hubert Prichard, in 1940 at Ruthin, Denbighshire, Wales. Their only child, Mathew Prichard, was born in 1943. A year later, Rosalind's husband died in the Battle of Normandy. She remarried in 1949, to lawyer Anthony Arthur Hicks (26 September 1916 — 15 April 2005) in Kensington, London, England. They lived in the Greenway Estate until Rosalind's death on 28 October 2004, aged 85. She was survived by her son and husband, who died six months later.
Mathew Prichard (born 1943) is the son of Hubert Prichard and Rosalind Hicks, and the only grandchild of Agatha Christie. His son James Prichard is the current CEO of Agatha Christie Limited.
James Prichard was born in 1970 in England. His father, Mathew Prichard, is a British philanthropist, the only child of British literary guardian Rosalind Hicks and the only grandchild of author Agatha Christie. His siblings are Alexandra Prichard (b. 1969) and Joanna Prichard (b. 1976). Prichard studied at the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. He graduated in 1993, before beginning his career at HarperCollins as a commercial director. He remained in the position until 2009 when he created the company Langtail Press, which preserves publications out of print by producing e-books. In 2015, Prichard took over as CEO of Agatha Christie Limited, from his father Mathew Prichard. He remains chairman and has been involved in upcoming projects, like the new Poirot novels written by Sophie Hannah. Along with his father, he also served as executive producer for Murder On The Orient Express and Death On The Nile, voicing interest in more collaborations in the future.
