Another entry in my decades-long series of "Eminent Elizabethans II",
persons achieving notability in the realms of,in lives entirely
within the reign of,Queen Elizabeth II.The most recent was Dame
Georgina Mace last September.
Edward William Stephen Stourton,27th Baron Mowbray,28th Baron Segrave,
and 24th Baron Stourton,born April 17th 1953,died January 30th 2021
according to the Yorkshire Post and others.His three baronies were
created in 1283,1295,and 1448 respectively...he had succeeded in
The family arms are a quarterly of six,noting their royal
descent and their being heirs general of England's Premier Dukes
(Norfolk) and Earls(Shrewsbury) though those titles descend by
1st Stourton (their own male line)
2nd Howard (Dukes of Norfolk)
5th Plantagenet (for Thomas of Brotherton,son of Edward I)
6th Talbot (Earls of Shrewsbury)
(The last four feature lions,also the dexter supporter).
When I remarked,decades ago,on the arms on rec.heraldry it
was noted that a diamond lozenge as borne by women by some
rules would utterly fail to do the devices justice...
I hope the new 28th/29th/25th Baron (who turned 29 in December...
the late peer had run the family estates,or what remains,since age 30)
has a son,as right now his four elder sisters would be his
co-heiresses if he remains childless.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
