Barony titles are reserved for a fortunate few clients. It is estimated that just 300 feudal baronies ever existed in England, but it will only be possible for a few of these to made available through ourselves.
Once barony titles are sold it will be highly unlikely that they will ever be available again.
Barony Title of Abington
History from: Post Norman Conquest
History to: 1349
Of interest…The Barony of Abington was first granted to Richard Engaine, William the Conqueror's artificer (weapons engineer). When he died the barony passed to his son also Richard. From him it passed to his son Vitalis (or Vital). Vitalis died without issue (childless) and the barony was taken by his widow Alice to her second marriage with Humphrey Bassingburn, who became baron by the right of his wife. Humphrey died and Alice married her third husband Nicholas Bassingburn (the son or her second husband from a previous marriage). He also became baron by the right of his wife. Nicholas died leaving a son and heir Humphrey the sixth baron. Humphrey joins Simon de Montford's rebellion and fought against King Henry at the Battle of Evesham. It was a crushing defeat for the barons. Humphrey loses the seat of the barony but later regains it by an agreement with the recipient from the Crown. In 1273 Humphrey got into financial difficulties but was relieved by the Dowager Queen Eleanor, who paid his debt to Elias a Jew of London, in exchange for some of his manors. He did retain Abington. Humphrey was succeeded by two further Humphreys. When the last Humphrey died, his three sons having pre-deceased him, his heir was his grand-daughter Margaret. She was married to Walter de Colvile who was a baron by writ and the feudal barony of Abington is not recorded again. Nearly 700 years had passed since the barony title was used prior to the current owner who acquired the rights through Manorial Counsel Limited.
