Featured Lordship Title

Lord and Lady Millbrook, Bedfordshire

A title for the motoring enthusiast. Millbrook is the world famous proving track in England. The lordship was held by the Knight's Templars in the 13th Century. The Templars were hunted down and executed by Pope Clement and many monarchs of Europe as they feared their wealth and influence. Millbrook passed to the Knights Hospitallers who were charged with defending the city of Jerusalem like the Templars but with much less power. With the suppression of the monasteries Millbrook came to the Crown who granted it to Sir Richard Longe, Governor of Guernsey. His son Henry is a Godchild of King Henry VIII. After reaching his majority he serves as High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire. Then is elected a Knight of the County and Member of Parliament for Cambridgeshire.
