A Conservative backbencher Member of Parliament will propose a Ten Minute Rule Bill today regarding female succession to hereditary titles. Ten Minute Rule Bills are not expected to become law, but they can serve as a test of the amount of support in Parliament for potential changes.

Hereditary Titles (Female Succession) – Hansard

Ten MPs became co-sponsors of the bill, including eight women but only two men. A Ten Minute Rule Bill may be challenged by one Member of Parliament, and Martin Docherty-Hughes held a speech bitterly opposing it. Mr. Docherty-Hugues called the proposal "tosh", claiming that it would "enshrine privilege in the hereditary peerage" and that older women and the women in his community who voted for him would be "appalled" at it. However, his claims are false. Female hereditary peers do not, and would not according to the bill, enjoy any privileges above male hereditary peers. The YouGov survey last year showed that 79% of women, 75% of people age 50 and older, and 74% of supporters of Mr. Docherty-Hugues' party (the SNP) believe daughters should have the same rights as sons to inherit titles.

But it seems allowing women and girls to inherit remains a very controversial proposal in Parliament.

"Jeannie, Countess of Carnarvon, the mother of the 8th Earl of Carnarvon died on Wednesday night.

Highclere Castle has confirmed that Jean Margaret Herbert (Wallop), Countess of Carnarvon, born on April 29, 1935, died peacefully at home, aged 83."

Jeannie's late husband, the 7th Earl of Carnarvon, was the Queen's friend and racing manager 'Porchie'.

I have always been fascinated with how the aristocracy live their lives such as their social circles, weekend parties, who they were allowed to date, etc. From reading through this thread it looks like many of them today participate in celebrity style events. I am more interested in the bygone era. I found this book on amazon, and it seems sort of what I am looking for. Also this book seems interesting, but some of the reviews say it does not quite live up to its title. Can anyone recommend any books? Thanks.

This book details the lives [social, political and marital] of the daughters of Lord Curzon in the first half of the 20th Century..
It's a 'good read', as well as covering much of your subject of interest,

I don't know if it belongs here, but an article in today's edition of The Guardian claims that 25,000 landowners (less than 1 % of the population) own half of the land area of England. In particular, members of the "aristocracy" or the gentry own approximately 30 % of the country's land area. Corporations on the other hand own approximately 18 % of England, followed by "oligarchs and City bankers" at 17 %. The land holdings of the Crown and/or the Royal Family (including the Crown estate and the Duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall) amount to roughly 1.4 % of the land area.


Major landowners mentioned in the article include the Duke of Buccleuch and the Duke of Beaufort.

On May 15, 1513, Charles Brandon was created Viscount Lisle by King Henry VIII. This was in right of Charles' betrothed wife, Elizabeth Grey. Was there not a stipulation in the Grey family that the husband of an heiress could not have a noble title?

Thank you, this is an extremely eye-opening article. If the estimate that 30% of English land is owned by the aristocracy is accurate, then the exclusion of women from inheritance in most aristocratic families also has tremendous implications for the gender balance of property ownership.




The Minister of Women and Equalities says that her department is "working on" discrimination against daughters in regard to inheritance and courtesy titles. "Courtesy titles" refers to inequality in the titles of spouses, an issue which was broached again in Parliament a few months ago.

https://hansard.parliament.uk/Common...ersToQuestions
Mrs Helen Grant (Maidstone and The Weald) (Con)

In light of recent objection to the Hereditary Titles (Female Succession) Bill of my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Philip Davies) that would address the discrimination against daughters when it comes to inheritance, when do the Government intend to end the practice of male primogeniture?

Penny Mordaunt

The Daughters’ Rights campaign was started after one new mum was told that her new arrival being a girl must have been a disappointment to her. This matter and the issue of courtesy titles are complex matters, but we do need to look at them in this modern age. My Department is working on that, and I welcome the Daughters’ Rights campaign.

I am in a quandary where to post this as I'm not sure if a person knighted by the Queen would rate being talked about in the nobility thread or if it should go into the celebrity thread but thinking about the content of the link and its pertinence to the work of several members of the British royal family such as Beatrice and Charles, I've decided to put it here and the moderators can move it to where they deem it fits.

We all know of Sir Richard Branson and his wealth and family and their connections to members of the royal family. I happened to come across this link and found it extremely interesting. It shows just what a person with wealth and opportunity can do to make this planet a better place. Join me as we discover Branson's exploration to the floor of the Great Blue Hole in Belize. Its a first.
