Sigismund FitzRandolph

Does anyone have any information on the parents, birthplace or ancestral connections of Sigismund Sizzo FitzRandolph? He was born in 1902 and was an attache of the German Embassy in London in 1938 and earlier. He was acquainted with Kim Philby, the notorious British spy for the USSR, and wrote some sort of letter of introduction to contacts in Spain when Philby went there in the 1930s. As an attache of the German Embassy he also wrote letters to the London Times in 1938 in defense of Hitler and German policies. In 1954 a publisher in Stuttgart published a book by him with the title: "Der Fruehstuecksattache aus London." (I have tried unsuccessrully to borrow it on inter-library loan) In 1933 a book or pamphlet of 49 pages written by him was published in German discussing judicial interpretation of legislation in the U.S. and Germany.
