My wife and I are delighted to give you a warm welcome to this website of one of the oldest feudal Baronies of England, whose rich history goes back to William the Conqueror.

The lands were all royal grants from William to one of his barons Turstin FitzRolf, who loyal fought as his standard bearer at the battle of Hastings in 1066. At that time the Barony of North Cadbury or then Cadeberie was also known as the Barony of Turstin FitzRolf, later likewise as Wynebald or Newmarch.

It was an extensive area in Somerset together with South Cadbury, including the amazing scenery of Cadbury Castle, said to be King Arthur's Camelot, and further surrounding areas. In medieval times even many other manors in Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Herefordshire, Dorset and Hampshire were in the possessions of the early barons and formed with these the Barony of North Cadbury.  

As the present Baron and Lady, we are very fortunate and proud to assume our responsibility to preserve and treasure this piece of English history for future generations. Though we are not only the holders of the Barony, we also acting as custodians of this part of 'Old England'.  

 


We very much hope that you enjoy your visit to our website of this ancient historic site.
                                  

                                       6th Baron and Baroness of North Cadbury
