Does anyone know what the distinction is between someone who is "Earl of Something" (like Earl of Wessex) and "Earl Something" (like Earl Spencer)? I know there is a difference, but I can't remember what it means.

Thanks,

During the Middle Ages, earls were a kind of financial enforcer for the Crown in addition to their power and influence in their county or town. The tradition was established that earldoms were awarded after the county or town where your property and influence was most prominent. Later, earldoms also were awarded as a personal honour with your family's surname, although this has been relatively rare until the 1700's.

As with all peerages, the earlier your family received the title, the higher your precedence, regardless of whether you are an Earl of Surrey or Earl Spencer. Peerages granted to members of the royal family take precedence from the holder's highest rank, which is a Royal Highness and Prince/Princess of the UK for the child and male-line grandchild of a Sovereign. Once the peerage passes to the third generation, their precedence follows their place in the line of succession to the throne.

I believe Linley was a town or village in Wales near the border of England. Since the earldom of Snowdon was created for Tony Armstrong-Jones in honour of his Welsh heritage, the subsidiary title also reflected Wales. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales.

I thought it had to do with Lord snowdon's uncle linley sambourne the well known punch cartoonist. I live a couple of minutes walk away from linley sambourne house museum in kensington and have visited several times as its a facinating place as you get an understanding of the creative ideas of lord snowdon and lord linley who have been inspired by linley sambourne. There were a few pics of lord snowdon's parents on display last time i popped in a few months ago.

For earldoms, it simply has to do with whether or not the title reflects a location. For example, Lord Snowdon is Earl of Snowdon because Snowdon is a location. Lord Spencer is simply Earl Spencer because Spencer is not a location.

All extant dukedoms and most marquessates (I think Camden is the only exception) are locations, while earldoms seem split with a large number of earldoms created during and since the 19th century have referenced surnames. The overwhelming majority of viscountcies are Viscount _______, regardless of whether they reference a location, though there are some exceptions, Viscount (of) Falkland being one that springs to mind. Baronies are equally split, like earldoms.

Actually, I can think of one other prominent one that isn't a location (at least not anymore): Wessex. I guess I can make an exception for that since it has historical significance. (But if they suddenly start calling Harry "Duke of Camelot," I must protest...)

There is discussion of the auction in the Princess Margaret Jewels thread.
In short, the Poltimore is being used as the centrepiece of the auction.

Great pictures, Iceflowe!!! Viscount Linley looks as though he's lost a good amount of weight. He looks quite handsome, actually. I assume the little boy and girl in the pictures are his children. Does anyone know how old they are now? Thank you.

Oh, and I wanted to add that Serena looks remarkable. Like she has hardly aged at all.

You are welcome, Bella :)
Their son Charles had his 7th birthday last week (he was born on July 2, 1999) and their daughter Margarita Elizabeth was born on May 14, 2002, so she's 4 now. The text of the pictures does not say that the children are their children, but it's possible, I would say :)
