Lady Edith and Bertie on their wedding day. After six seasons of troubles, Lady Edith finally finds happiness. In the last episode of the series, the middle Crawley daughter marries Bertie Pelham to become the Marchioness of Hexham, a position which outranks everyone else in her family.
Marigold was the daughter of Lady Edith Crawley and her publisher/paramour, Michael Gregson. Prior to her birth, Michael had disappeared in Munich, Germany (later it was revealed that he had been killed by the Brown Shirts, Nazi supporters, during the infamous Bier Hall Putsch).
However, Violet and later Cora eventually learned the truth, along with most of the family, and Cora arranged for Marigold to live at Downton as Edith's "ward". With Edith's marriage to Bertie, Marigold would move to her stepfather's estate of Brancaster Castle and probably live out her childhood there.
Wait … isn't this exactly what happened on Downton Abbey last week? Well, yes. But also: no. Because this time it's Lady Edith who's getting married, to her beloved Sir Anthony Strallan, a man who clearly plans to spend his golden years with Edith because, well, his golden years have kinda already started.
Mr. Drewe then tells his wife that Marigold is the daughter of a friend who died, they raise her and think of her as their own daughter. As the result of another "shall I keep and love my daughter?" coin flip, Edith changes her mind again, takes her back from the Drewes and raises her at Downton as her ward.
Fans will also have been delighted to see that chauffeur Tom has found love again as he appears to remarry in wedding scenes that see him and maid Lucy Smith (Tuppence Middleton) tie the knot. Tom married into the aristocratic Crawley family only to be devastated by the death of his first wife, Lady Sybil.
seems to pick up on the truckload of clues that have been delivered at his door. Granted, the Lord Grantham has spent months not realizing that Marigold—the child with whom Edith is obsessed who bears an uncanny resemblance to Edith—is her child.
Sybil's husband and the father of their daughter is Tom Branson, the former Grantham chauffeur and Irish revolutionary who can't go home.
She lives under the strict but caring eye of Mrs Patmore, the cook. Daisy was usually seen in a light pink dress while being a kitchen maid. She later wore grey when she was promoted to kitchen assistant. Daisy is married to her second husband, Andrew Parker.
Michael Gregson, Edith's new lover, travels to Munich to get a divorce from his current asylum-confined wife to marry her. He never returns, under very mysterious circumstances. It is later revealed he was killed during the Beer Hall Putsch.
Lord Robert has no sons, and an “entail” keeps any of his daughters from inheriting his great estate and mansion: Downton Abbey. Robert's heir is Matthew Crawley, a distant cousin. Matthew will someday inherit both the earl's title and his real estate, thanks to the entail.
She knows that Thomas is the illegitimate son of O'Brien and Lord Grantham – and the rightful heir to the house.
In the end she figured it out and forced Tom to confirm the truth with her. 7. Bertie Pelham- Mary forced Edith to tell the truth. 9.
The actor playing Gregson, Charles Edwards, had other projects he needed to make time for, and couldn't be in as much of Downton Abbey as Julian Fellowes was hoping for. Therefore, after a few years of being missing in Germany in-universe, Gregson was killed off, rather unceremoniously.
Downton Abbey bombshell: Lady Edith discovers she is pregnant with married Michael Gregson's child.

Chauffeur Tom Branson will marry Lucy Smith, Branson tragically lost his wife Lady Sybill during labour in series three. The film is set in 1927, with “no nannies, no maid, no chaffeur,” as the Crawley's attempt to modernise.
He is the husband of the late Lady Sybil Branson, with whom he had one child, a daughter, Sybbie, whom he named after his wife. It is clear that even years later, he never truly recovered from Sybil's death. Through his marriage he became the son-in-law of Robert Crawley and his wife, Cora.

Ah yes, the scheming maid who tried to hit on Tom while he was mourning Sybil's death, got fired, then managed to worm her way back into Downton to work as Cora's lady's maid, then pursued Tom relentlessly until she finally hit that and then tried to convince him he had gotten her pregnant.
