The manorial system was how the Old World fed and clothed itself in the face of limited resources. Most people (Americans) simply miss the fact that many millennia before, the people of England had hit a resources wall and, therefore, had to rely on the absolutist monarchical system in order to properly manage the scarce, limited resources -- all while hopefully maintaining high culture. There had to be earls and barons who could keep strict order and punish those who weren't toeing the line. Put plainer, you couldn't have a democratic system where you could simply vote yourself more or this or that. That also meant every peasant couldn't be allowed to play the "self-made man" libertarian like they do here in the New World. However, it's rather unfortunate how the two main functions of an earl like Grantham, i.e., agricultural production and haute culture, were given such short shrift on DA. Sadly, DA was 99% fluff.

It's a huge house, the money came from feudalism, claiming a huge swathe of land from ordinary people and forcing them to pay taxes and work for free on the land. The same farmers and villagers also had to pay a tithe tax to the church.

Gordon Smith I agree. If you think the aristocrats like the Canarvons who hold this estate are really rich and wealthy then you're wrong. They don't actually own anything, they "hold" the assets of the land and the house and are tasks with the tradition of management of the estate to keep it up. Their job is to retain the house (which is a huge financial burden) and are for life required to oversee farming and food production, ie where the UK gets it's produce from. When an earl dies, the government takes so much of their money in form of death tax. When anything on their land goes wrong (farmers need new equipment, a flood happens, tenants' private homes get destroyed etc) then it's the earl who pays for it. Recently, the Duke of Northumberland sold off $14m worth of family assets in order to provide money to repair damage to the homes of people on the estate after a flood ravaged the area. The Duke also dug into his pocket to provide aid to a neighbouring community. If it weren't for these land owners, it would be the government forking out this money. The aristocracy and monarchy system have social responsibility and actually help the government to manage the nation jointly, sometimes in ways that the government cannot

+Martin O.Malley 1: no one is forcing anyone to visit Highclere Castle. 2: Thousands of 'ordinary' people look on these country houses as part of our common national heritage - after all, it was people like us who built these houses, painted the portraits, made furniture, the glass and the silverware. 3: Would you rather the owners of these historic houses sold off everything to other rich people, pocketed the money and went off to live somewhere with a decent climate without worries about dry-rot and death duties? 4: If the Earl of Carnarvon had sold up and had the house demolished would it have made you any happier?

They were struggling, yes. But they had already begun opening it to the public and offering it as a special event venue. But Downton Abbey gave it a very big boost. Plus, the revenue from the show itself (they were paid to use the castle for the location, of course) helped them restore many of the rooms.

Also, "House of Peers of Scotland" is meaningless and do you mean Mary Queen of Scots and not "Queen Mary of Scotland"? Also, which castle, she resided in various castles and who exactly has the hereditary title? Sorry, but a lot of your query makes no sense at all to a Brit.
Methven Arundell (1 год назад)
Mary, I am in London but I don't fully understand your post. If he is the Grandfather of your cousin's husband's Grandfather then surely he is deceased? He therefore 'was' and not 'is'? And by estate do you mean the estate as in a will or estate as in bricks and mortar?

Mary Ivanetich, B.S., This would be excellent if done, we all need each others' assistance on these things, as anything to do with family history and genealogy is the most valuable thing we can do--helping our descendants learn to help preserve family history, precious mementoes and stories. Knowing where progenitors lived and came from motivates them to help preserve their history and teach their children to do the same, and not for the sake of nobility or privilege, but rather for ties that bind loved ones together. #ancestry.com #familysearch.com #relative finder

I like Americans. They did help end WW2 and given so much in aid to so many countries including mine. So, I became one. My country and the US have always had good relations and nicer than my old country's neighbors who treat us like crap. I married an American, and am happy in an interracial marriage and living my own version of American dream. Callum, if you are American and hate being one, feel free to make room for people who want to be one. If you're not American, then thank your parents you're not here! As one of the sub-cultures here say "hang loose" or "chill" - enjoy life. Leave hate in the trash.

Wonder if the family - and the Estate of Highclere - will have any claim to a portion of any new artifacts that are expected to be unearthed in just-discovered chambers inside the tomb of Tutankhamun......?
Eggsn Bakon (2 месяца назад)
No. Probably limited agreement or rather % share of findings only at that time. Egypt is actually making trades, negotiating, buying etc. for some of the artifacts to come back to Egypt. The old governments basically sold them to foreigners who seem cared more about the history than the Egyptians did at the time.

The Gay Catholic (10 месяцев назад)

Gisa W Slonim (1 год назад)
The British do not use tablecloths but prefer place mats. In France, however, tablecloths are essential and were brought to France, together with ice cream and various culinary delights as well as knives (to be used at the table!), by Catherine de Medici of Italy. I myself prefer tablecloths but, having some Aussies for lunch one day gave them place mats which they appreciated and commented on, wondering why the rest of the world (outside of Australia) did not prefer them. The answer to that is that one country's preference is another country's bad manners.

My family has had a story like that of Downton Abbey.. But the difference was that my father passed away while I was still a minor..I was supposed to be the legal heir of things, including the ancestral house, but was not allowed to decide things over since I wasn't of age yet.. My mum was the one who decided things and she simply thought of starting a new life and sold the house :( :( :( If I were old enough then to be allowed to decide, I would be like the Crawleys who never give up and do everything to keep their ancestral house..

You didn't watch the show did you? They owed heavy taxes. There is an episode about that. The British loved taxing their subjects, after all. That is why there is America. Do you think that because American Colonialist rebelled against taxation that the landed gentry of England also rebelled? Mmmm???....No.
