Feudal Lord & Baron of England
Lord of Blakewell is a manorial title of England. The current holder of the title is Jörg Hubert Dumke, 6th Baron of North Cadbury. The Baron holds the legal rights to the Lordship of Blakewell. The Manor of Blakewell in Marwood Parish, in the county of Devon, is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Blachewilla, Blakewille, meaning ‘black stream or spring’ and dates back to King Edward the Confessor. He was the first Lord of Blakewell in 1066. It was apparently owned directly by the King and therefore a Royal Manor - the King's Manor. In 1411, during the reign of Henry IV, Thomas Pyllond holds the Manor and was 10th and last Lord of Blakewell. Thereafter, the manorial Lordship of Blakewell was dormant and could not be re-assigned unless by the Crown or as a manorial lordship re-established by legal process.
In 2010, Jörg Hubert and Regina became the rightful successors and owners of the lordship title and 11th Lord and Lady of the Manor of Blakewell. The manorial Lordship of Blakewell has been re-established by legal process by a leading authority in the UK. The legal rights to the title have been transferred by Deed of Conveyance to the current Baron and Baroness of North Cadbury, the 6th, in compliance with the Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act 1925.
The hereditary title of the lordship, is not a title of the peerage (parliamentary title). It originated under feudalism and enshrined in English law as an incorporeal hereditament.
The transfer of title and Deed of Conveyance have been thoroughly reviewed, approved and provably confirmed by Senior London Barristers and UK registered Solicitors (SRA - Solicitors Regulation Authority). As proof of authenticity of the manorial lordship title, the Conveyance Deed includes confirmations of legal rights from two UK registered Solicitors (Lawyers) and a 'Solicitor's Letter' from a third Solicitor, confirming the transfer of ownership.
The legal conveyance and ownership of the manorial title 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.
