Princess Alexandra was represented by Lieutenant Colonel Gordon Birdwood at the Funeral of the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire which was held in St. Peter's Church, Edensor, Bakewell, Derbyshire (from the CC)

The Dowager Duchess and Sir Angus Ogilvy were second cousins.

Thomas Clifford, 8th Baron de Clifford (1414-1455), who commanded the Lancastrian vanguard, had earned a distinguished reputation as a veteran of the French wars and for his success on the Scottish border.
Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter, (1430-1475) married Anne of York, the sister of King Edward IV.
How did Nottingham become part of the title of the Earls of Winchelsea and Nottingham?
The Viscount of Massereene and Ferrard is a title of the Skeffington family.
How did Ferrard become part of the title?
The Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood family has the title of Marquess of Dufferin and Ava.
How did Ava become part of the title?
Arthur Valerian, the 8th Duke's demise leaves a vacancy in the Order of the Garter.
Is there a strict timeline in which this vacancy must be filled?

The new Duke is also a candidate, as most, if not all the previous dukes have had the Garter so it is possible that The Queen will pass it on to the new Duke - maybe this year, maybe next (would be nice this year so he had it for the 200th anniversary of Waterloo but maybe that would be too soon for him).
It would be nice if the Garter was given to Charles, the 9th Duke for it would add historic significance to the 200th anniversary of Waterloo.
The Earl of Lindsey and Abingdon is a title of the Bertie family.
How did Abingdon become part of the title?

Sad news. And so soon after the Duchess Of Devonshire. I have been watching a lot of documentaries about Nobility and it's place in British society over the past 40 years, it will be interesting to see what the next generation bring.

The Marlborough next generation isn't nice. New duke is former drug addict. His father was so worried that he took legal action to stop his son from inheriting the family’s estate.

Well, if he now has gotten out of his addiction, I hope that he's ready to take over the responsibilities.

Despite the Duke of Wellington being very infirm at his age, he’s still a regular attendee at royal and state events. Commitment!

Martin @CourtierUK · 38m 38 minutes ago
His eldest surviving son, Jamie Spencer-Churchill, succeeds him as the 12th Duke of Marlborough.

Royal Central @RoyalCentral · 59m 59 minutes ago
He was a generational cousin of Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill & a distant relative of Diana, Princess of Wales.

The oldest Duke in the UK is Arthur Wellesley, the 8th Duke of Wellington, who will turn 100 in July next year!

The youngest non-royal Duke in the UK is currently Henry FitzRoy, the 12th Duke of Grafton.

I believe his oldest son James will inherit the title but the estate and such will be run by his other son Edward and a board of trustees.

We live close to Blenheim and visit frequently this is very sad news. Jamie Blanford (the new duke) has been working on the estate for quite a few years now and from what I've read (and there was a documentary last year) he will run the estate but is answerable to the trustees. Father and son have reconciled over the last few years.

In what year did John Spencer-Churchill introduce the Pleasure Gardens to the tourist attraction?

BBC News - New hereditary peer elected to House of Lords
Quote:
The 62-year-old Earl of Oxford and Asquith will sit as a Liberal Democrat peer and succeeds Lord Methuen, who died in July.

There are still 92 hereditary peers left in the Lords, following reforms to the upper house in 1999.

The 1st Countess of Winchelsea had (among others) 2 sons, the elder of which inherited her earldom. Within a few generations this son's line had died out in the male-line, the last male-line descendant being the 6th Earl of Winchelsea. In the mean time, the first Countess' younger son had a son himself, who was created the 1st Earl of Nottingham. The 1st Earl was succeeded by his son, who would later succeed his distant cousin, the 6th Earl of Winchelsea.

The title Viscount Massereene is unique in that it descends to heirs general, not just heirs male.

The first Viscount was succeeded by his son-in-law. Later the 5th Viscount was created Earl of Masereene, but that title descended to heirs male and became extinct when the male-line of the Earls died out.

When the Earldom died out the Viscounty was inherited by the last Earl's daughter, who was married to the 2nd Viscount Ferrard. They were then succeeded by their son, combining the titles. However, as the remainder for the title Viscount Ferrard allows for it to descend only to heirs male, it's possible the titles will diverge in the future.
