Lordship Title of Cardington ID13978

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The inheritance of Beatrice, the youngest sister of John de Beauchamp, formed a third CARDINGTON MANOR. This followed the same descent as Bromham Manor (q.v.), passing to John de Botetourt, her son-in-law, and later to the Latimers and Nevills of Raby until the death of Sir John Nevill Lord Latimer in 1577, when his Cardington property passed to his second daughter Dorothy, the wife of Thomas Earl of Exeter. The latter died in 1622–3, and was succeeded by his son William, who died in 1640. His nephew and heir, David Earl of Exeter, died three years later seised of lands in Cardington, but no further trace of the manor has been found. Exeter Wood and land forming part of the estate were purchased by Samuel Charles Whitbread in 1879 from Lord Exeter.
