Feudal Lord & Baron of the United Kingdom
Baron of North Cadbury is a feudal title of England. The Barony was created by William the Conqueror in about 1066 and was a gift for one of his Norman Barons Turstin FitzRolf, who fought for him as his loyal standard bearer at the Battle of Hastings on 14 October 1066. He was one of the King's principal Barons who held land directly from the King as Tenant-in-chief per baroniam, making the holder a feudal Baron.
The name of the Barony refers to [North] Cadbury in the county of Somerset. The Barony and Manor of North Cadbury is recorded as Cadeberie in the Domesday Book survey of 1086 and laid dormant since 1216. The Barony title has been conveyed to the current Baron and Baroness, the 6th, in 2011. The hereditary titles of the Barony of North Cadbury, and as well the Lordships of the Manor of Blakewell in the county of Devon and Codiford Farleigh in Cornwall, are not titles of the peerage (parliamentary titles). All three originated under feudalism and enshrined in English law as incorporeal hereditaments.
The legal documentation of assignment of the title rights (set of deeds/conveyance deeds) has been thoroughly reviewed, approved and provably confirmed by Senior London Barristers and three different UK registered Solicitors (SRA - Solicitors Regulation Authority). As proof of authenticity of the feudal Barony title, the conveyance documents include confirmations of rights from two UK registered Solicitors (Lawyers) and a 'Solicitor's Letter' from a third Solicitor.
The legal conveyance and ownership of titles has been officially announced and recorded in The Gazette (formally The London Gazette), the official public record of His Majesty's Government, which operates under strict Government and Crown approval. The Gazette is published by TSO (The Stationery Office) on behalf of His Majesty's Stationery Office. They are subject to Crown copyright.
