He was born to a family of public service and aristocratic descent, but at a young age became a communist and turned his back on the privileges of his birth.Romilly was born in Huntingdon Park in Herefordshire, the son of Colonel Bertram Romilly, a soldier with a distinguished record in World War I and governor of Galilee in 1919-20, when the country was under British military government, before under the British Mandate of Palestine.
