Featured Title

Lordship Title of Brettgrave, Epsom, Surrey

 

Brettgrave came into being in 1197. Changing hands through both the first and the second Barons’ Wars, by the early-14th Century Brettgrave was held by John Imworth.  It later moved into the trust of Henry, Earl of Lancaster. Henry was created Duke of Lancaster thus Brettgrave began to move further up in the world and royal links developed, officially becoming part of the Duchy of Lancaster in 1399. The War of the Roses came and went. Brettgrave passed quietly through several generations, until in 1626 when its final 28 years were full of financial and legal scandal.
