Feudal Lord & Baron of England
Lord of Codiford Farleigh 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 Codiford Farleigh. The Lordship of the Manor of Codiford Farleigh, in the parish of St. Wenn, Cornwall, is also known as Codiford-Farlegh, Cudiford or Lancorla, and recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Cudiford. It was first recorded in 1066 in the reign of King Edward the Confessor. The Manor has a rich history, which ended with the death of Mary, 5th Baroness Botreaux, 17th and last Lady of the Manor, in 1533 during the reign of King Henry VIII. Thereafter, the Manor of Codiford Farleigh has been dismembered and no further reference is made to the lordship and manor. After that, the manorial Lordship of Codiford Farleigh was dormant and could not be re-assigned unless by the Crown or as a manorial lordship re-established by legal process.
In 2020, Jörg Hubert and Regina, 6th Baron and Baroness of North Cadbury, became the rightful successors and owners of the Lordship title and 18th Lord and Lady of the Manor of Codiford Farleigh. The manorial Lordship of Codiford Farleigh 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, 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 the 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.
