Oh how marvelous!! Once I got into that library, I'd be happily in my own element for years. Books, books and more books and probably some very rare editions of books too!

The Duke of Northumberland has helped to launch a new set of stamps to mark the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

The stamps showcase some of the best loved surviving examples of Brown’s work, and celebrate his contribution to landscape gardening.

Alnwick Castle, the most northerly example of the landscape gardener’s work, features on the £1.05 stamp.

No, only their children do. Their eldest son will also never inherit his father's title because it is a life peerage.

No. Not even when his son has children. Robert is only a baron, and a life peer. Like the younger sons of earls (higher titles all sons are lords), all children of viscounts and barons simply are honorable. It doesn't extend to grandchildren. If he was a hereditary peer, Alexander's kids would be 'the honorable' only when Robert died and Alex inherited.

Transgender Inheritance: How Does Gender Transition Affect Titles? - Tatler

Quote:
Then came the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) 2004, which allows them to be fully recognised in their new gender by the law, provided they meet certain criteria. But the lawyers who thrashed out the act must have debated the issue of trans toffs, because they made one exception. Section 16 states: 'The fact that a person's gender has become the acquired gender under this Act (a) does not affect the descent of any peerage or dignity or title of honour, and (b) does not affect the devolution of any property.'

[…]

An obituary reported that 'Dr Forbes-Sempill went about her change of gender in the quietest possible manner. She applied to the Sheriff of Aberdeen, and acquired a warrant for birth re-registration. Then, on 12 September 1952, there appeared a notice in the advertisement columns of Aberdeen's The Press and Journal, which stated that henceforth Dr Forbes-Sempill wished to be known as Dr Ewan Forbes-Sempill.' Three weeks later, he married his housekeeper, Isabella 'Pat' Mitchell.

[…] it was assumed that Ewan would inherit the family baronetcy, Forbes of Craigievar. But a cousin, John Forbes-Sempill, challenged Ewan's succession on the grounds that that title could only pass to a male heir. The case was taken to the Scottish Court of Session, which ruled in favour of Ewan. The cousin fought on until, in 1968, James Callaghan, the then home secretary, upheld the Scottish court's decision: he ordered that the name of Sir Ewan Forbes of Craigievar be entered in the Roll of Baronets.

In theory, this should have set a precedent, but details of the case were kept secret for years, meaning it could have no bearing on subsequent legal rulings. Indeed, official records have only just been released to the National Archives of Scotland, ending a 50-year mystery over the case of Dr Forbes-Sempill.

Given her really tragic life story, that's a mean spirited headline IMO.

Anyone read the bit below about James Middleton?

Isn't Rochdale part of Diana's bloodline? That name is familiar.

The oldest viscountcy is Hereford. Viscounts do not use "of" in their titles. However, there is an exception: the Viscount of Arbutnot.
