Feudal Lord & Baron of the United Kingdom
Lord of Blakewell is a feudal title of England. The Manor of Blakewell in Marwood Parish, is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Blachewilla, Blakewille, meaning ‘black stream or spring’ and dates back to King Edward the Confessor, the first Lord of Blakewell in 1066. It was apparently owned directly by the King and therefore a Royal Manor - the King's Manor.
The Lordship title of Blakewell has been conveyed to the current Baron & Baroness of North Cadbury in 2010. The hereditary title of the Lordship of Blakewell in the county of Devon, is not a title of the peerage (parliamentary titles). It originated under feudalism and enshrined in English law as an incorporeal hereditament.
The conveyance and ownership of the 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.
