Isn't that considered a stillbirth though?
Very sad though.

The Most Hon. George Paget, 7th Marquess of Anglesey, passed away on 13 July 2013, aged 90.

He was born on 8 October 1922, the only son of the 6th Marquess and Marchioness of Anglesey. He succeeded as the 7th Marquess at the death of his father in 1947.
He was married since 1948 to Shirley Morgan, by whom he had three daughters and two sons.
Their eldest son, Charles, succeeds him as the 8th Marquess of Anglesey.

Shouldn't his son be the 8th marquess, not the 9th?

PBS Program Video:
Secrets of the Manor House: Secrets of Chatsworth-
In its 500-year history, Chatsworth has been home to some notable inhabitants, among them the 5th Duke of Devonshire, his wife, Lady Georgiana Spencer, and Lady Elizabeth Foster, who lived together in a ménage à trois. King Edward VII enjoyed shooting parties on the estate and was often entertained by Duchess Louisa, one of Britain’s foremost political hostesses-

Yes, of course, his son is now the 8th Marquess. I made a typo with numbers...

It was no accident that the magnificent Victorian Highclere Castle was chosen as the setting for Julian Fellowes’ all-conquering TV drama, Downton Abbey.
The eighth Countess of Carnarvon and Julian’s wife, Lady Emma Kitchener-Fellowes – Lord Kitchener was her great-granduncle – had long been friends.

I really have to feel for this couple and admire them. Its becoming more and more the norm for older people to find out that their golden years are going to be a struggle rather than the happy picture of a glorious retirement and one quickly learns how to stretch a dollar as far as it can go.

These two have faced many problems as with the various lawsuits in regards to the estate, periods of depression and drug dependency, found each other and are now happily bringing a child into the world and are extremely happy albeit concerned about the welfare of the child. I wish them the very best and hopefully things will hit a smoother path for them in the future.

This story really hits home as we read and come to the stark realization that nothing is ever to be taken for granted and life sure can throw some curve balls into our paths. Thanks for posting this Homme!

When i read this sort of stories on daily mail I always have a feeling that there's more to the story than the article mentions... It would be interesting to hear a response from the trustees or from the older son Thomas...

Earls in England

Good morning to everyone :)



My name is Javier. Recently I became very interested in the Peerage of England. The reason is that my wife is a big maniac on the topic and I want to surprise her for her birthday in the end of February. I want to prepare a Birthday Card with wishes from all the currently alive Earls and Countesses in England, since this is her favourite title (I know it is a very ambitious objective, but I want to try to do it.). I was trying to find some information about the currently alive Earls and Countesses in each county in England. Unfortunatelly I'm not able to discover any records or other relevant source on the topic. I spent the last 2 weeks trying to find something, but apart from the data for some of the most famous counties (Suffolk for instance) there is no other reliable information I could find. I would be really grateful if someone could help me out with this!



I appologize in case the topic in not in the correct section. I'm a newbie in the forum.



Best wishes to everyone!
Javier :)

Wow, that's a massive task you've set yourself...

There are so many I don't think you can fit them all on one card...

I will try and let's see what will happen :)

Currently the first task is to find a list with the names and the county of the currently alive earls and countesses. I know these from Wikipedia, but since most of them are not alive even if try to get a wish....it wouldn't be feasible :)

What you also need to remember is that often an Earl will have a more senior title e.g. The Earl of St Andrews is better known as The Duke of Kent (and his son uses the Earl of St Andrews title as a courtesy title to indicate that he is the heir).

Not all Earls as directly associates with counties either but often cities or in the case of Prince Edward a place that no longer exists.

Just the royals who are earls as well as dukes:

Earl of Merioneth (Philip)
Earl of Chester (Charles)
Earl of Strathearn (William)
Earl of Inverness (Andrew)
Earl of Ulster (Richard - The Duke of Gloucester - his son uses the title)
Earl of St Andrews (Edward - The Duke of Kent - his son uses the title)

Then there is Edward:

Earl of Wessex (Edward)

Earl of Snowdon - ex-husband of Princess Margaret is another connected to the royals with an Earldom.

Earl of Harewood is also related to the royals being descended from George V through his daughter, Princess Mary.

The Wikipedia list does say whether there is a current holder of the title - and is comprehensive in that regard.

The terms it is using have meaning:

ALL the titles with the word 'extant' in the second last column tells you whether there is a current living title holder, and the final columns tells you whether or not that title is the subsidiary title of a duke or marquis.

There are currently 323 (according to my count on Wiki and I may have missed one or two or counted one of two twice but...) extant, or existing, earldoms in Britain - some English, some Scottish and some British, some peers holding multiple earldoms along with other titles while others have the earldom and maybe one other.
