Pamela "Pam" Freeman-Mitford (25 November 1907 – 12 April 1994) was one of the Mitford Sisters.
Pamela Freeman-Mitford was born on 25 November 1907, the second daughter of David Freeman-Mitford, 2nd Baron Redesdale, and Sydney Bowles (1880–1963).
John Betjeman, who for a time was in love with her, referred to her in his unpublished poem, The Mitford Girls, as the "most rural of them all", due to the fact she preferred to live quietly in the country. They met when she was managing Biddesden in Hampshire, the house of her brother-in-law, Bryan Guinness, 2nd Baron Moyne.
In 1936 she married the millionaire physicist Derek Jackson. Jackson was a "rampant bisexual", who married six times. They lived at Tullamaine Castle in Fethard, Co. Tipperary. After her divorce in 1951, she spent the remainder of her life as the companion of Giuditta Tommasi (died 1993), an Italian horsewoman. They lived at Caudle Green, Gloucestershire. According to her sister Jessica, Pamela Mitford had become "a you-know-what-bian"; i.e. she had grown attracted to women later in life.
Pamela Mitford died on 12 April 1994, in London.
