Bond takes the place of this genealogist when Sir Hilary is invited to Piz Gloria to clarify Ernst Stavro Blofeld's claim to the title of Count. Unconvinced why Bond should take his place, he has to persuade Sir Hilary that it is a matter of most importance and he will behave respectfully.
Sir Hilary Bray is a quiet, friendly man, expert in the field of genealogy. Sir Hilary gives Bond a brief run down on the issues of genealogy and looks into Bonds own family history. Only appearing in one scene little else is learnt about the character.
George Baker also appears as Captain Benson in The Spy Who Loved Me eight years later. §
