Response from The Right Honourable The Countess of Mansfield in response to a letter I sent on her featuring on Her Grace The Duchess of Rutland’s The Duchess Podcast.
Lady Mansfield features on the episode 5 of the podcast and speaks about the history of The Murray/Mansfield Family, her story as someone who married in aristocracy and as Chatelaine of The Estate, and the history of Their Seat of Power, Scone Palace, The Crowning Place of Scottish Kings.
The Earldom of Mansfield was created twice both times in The Peerage of Great Britain, Earl of Mansfield, in the county of Nottingham (1776) for William Murray, 1st Baron Mansfield, fourth son of David Murray, The 5th Viscount of Stormont and Earl of Mansfield, in the County of Middlesex (1792) for William Murray, 1st Baron Mansfield, fourth son of David Murray, The 5th Viscount of Stormont, the two titles separated upon the death of the first Earl due to different remainders and became reunited in 1843 under one holder, William Murray, The 4th and 3rd Earl of Mansfield. Subsidiary titles are Viscount of Stormont created 1621 in The Peerage of Scotland by James VI of Scotland, Lord Balvaird created 1641 in The Peerage of Scotland by Charles I and Lord Scone created 1604 in The Peerage of Scotland by James VI of Scotland.
The Family Seat is Scone Palace since 1600 when it was given to The Murray Family by James VI.
The reply is in the form of a letter from Lady Mansfield and thanks me for writing and how she enjoyed doing the podcast episode and is enjoying the podcast.
