The 10th Earl of St Germans, who has died aged 75, enjoyed all the attributes that the popular press expects of the aristocracy – a distinguished lineage, burdensome inheritance, family tragedy and personal eccentricity that flirted with Byronic dissolution.

A central figure in the dalliance with the counter-culture by members of the peerage that began in the 1960s, Lord St Germans personified a certain brand of rakish hippiedom thereafter. Yet he did not allow his fondness for relaxed social norms to compromise a near-feudal grip on his family estate in south-east Cornwall, whose preservation he helped to assure.

His “Elephant Fayre”, a festival that took place for a number of years on the Port Eliot estate, attracted some 10,000 revellers, travellers and devotees of the New Age, initially free of charge. The festival took its name from the beast that is the Eliot family’s crest, and until the Fayre’s demise in the late 1980s one of its prime attractions was a giant wooden elephant. Its howdah could be reached by a ladder concealed within the elephant’s hollow core.

A Viscountess has blamed badgers for the slaughter of 200 lambs on her family’s estate, as she called for a widespread cull of the animals.

Helene, Viscountess Scarsdale, a formidable aristocrat, said the lambs had been killed in three years, while also accusing the National Trust, which now owns historic Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire, of allowing the badgers to “wreak havoc”.

She said 500 acres of “beautiful” parkland at Kedleston, which has been in the family for almost 1,000 years, had been allowed to turn into “thistles and nettles” by the trust, which in turn had let badgers thrive.

The National Trust took over Kedleston about 30 years ago. Their son, the fourth Viscount Scarsdale, lives in a wing of the stately home. She said she had been horrified by what she believes is the killing of lambs owned by a tenant farmer.

After inheriting one of the finest dukedoms in the kingdom, with a spectacular castle, estimated £350 million wealth and more than 100,000 acres of land, one might have thought the Duke of Northumberland’s family were in for an easy life.

Not so, it seems.

Ralph Percy, the 12th Duke of Northumberland who inherited his title in 1995, has spoken of some of the hardships of one of Britain’s grandest estates, after his young family were left feeling imprisoned by crowds of curious tourists.

Saying his inheritance was “terrifying”, bringing with it the pressure of keeping the estate running, the Duke disclosed castle life “didn’t really work” initially.

The Duke himself was born at the castle, educated at Wellesley House and Eton before going on to history at Oxford and taking a course in surveying.

The headline is awkward.
The Duke in question can find a different way to fund the castle and close it to the public. Various perils of being a Duke are easily outweighed by advantages of belonging to an upper class.
