Paraphrased from Wikipedia: Ralph's first son was to inherit the Earldom, but the bulk of the Neville lands were left to Ralph's wife, Joan Beaufort, with the intention of their eldest son, Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury. Ralph's first son, Ralph II, agreed to this, but he predeceased his father, causing Ralph's heir to be his grandson, Ralph III. III disputed the inheritance, but didn't get much out of it.

Interesting article. One thing it says is that it is unlikely to be any more non-royal dukedoms made. Yet, as someone in the =comments rightly said, soon there will be two more non royal dukes. When the current Dukes of Gloucester and Kent pass away, their sons, who are not Princes will be the holders of two Dukedoms that are no longer part of the royal family. It would seem that this will be the way that new hereditary titles will be created. This could also hold true for the Earldom of Wessex if James has a son, and whatever title Harry receives and he has a grandson.

Duke of Northumberland says Scottish independence would "cause difficulties" - The Journal
Quote:
The Duke of Northumberland has spoken out against Scottish independence, saying it would “create difficulties”.

Ralph Percy, the 12th Duke of Northumberland and owner of Northumberland Estates, says he crosses the border between England and Scotland every day.

The Duke, who is based at his ancestral home at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, is supportive of the union, adding “if it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it”.

“I personally cross the border every day from one part of the estate to the other,” he said.

“I see no difference to those living on one side of the border to the other.
“A new boundary would create difficulties.

“I think it [the union] has worked very well for a long time and if it isn’t broke then don’t fix it.”

The Duke made the comments at a debate about the Scottish independence referendum in Berwick upon Tweed, in Northumberland, organised by the BBC.

That's such sad news even if she had an extraordinarily long and interesting life.
I've been a fan of the Mitford sisters for years.

This is very sad news, but what an extraordinary life she had. Last year there was a documentary broadcast over several weeks about Chatsworth House and The Dowager Duchess was filmed in a couple of the episodes.
Her legacy at least for me will be how incredibly successful Chatsworth House is, without any involvement thank goodness of English Heritage or the National Trust.

Sad news indeed, though her mind wasn't what it used to be for a while. I read her 'Wait for me'book only a few months ago, she had an interesting life indeed and was wonderfully witty. And always protective of her sisters, esp. of Diana Mosley who needed the most protecting perhaps.
