TIL Cecil Chubb was the last person to own Stonehenge. Stonehenge was put up for auction in 1915 and Chubb bought it on a whim. It is speculated he bought the stones as a present for his wife and she was less than pleased. Chubb donated Stonehenge to the nation in 1918 and was made a baronet. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cec…

[UK] Crimson Peak (2015): In Guillermo del Toro’s spooky gothic romance, a young woman from Buffalo marries a penniless baronet from England and goes to live in his mansion, only to discover that all is not as it appears

Features strong performances from Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, and Tom Hiddleston.

The movie wasn’t a big hit in cinemas, but is a lovely over-the-top gothic romance if that’s your cup of tea. (More tea?)

Minor baronet - should be easy but isn't

Hi all, you guys were amazing the other day when I was looking for an obscure London pauper ancestor. Now here's one that's had me stumped for a while, and is frustrating because it should be someone who's quite well documented.

Name: Sir George Roberts, 1st Baronet Martholme

Born: c1859, Paris (but was an Englishman)

Wife: Martha Clemence, a Frenchwoman

Died: 1950

He was a biscuit manufacturer, evidently wealthy, possibly of Jewish ancestry. And that's all i've got. Bewildered by the lack of info I can find out there. Any ideas?

I'm a tailor in Regency London and Sir Richard Dastardly, a rakish baronet, is ignoring my bills. How would I as a small business owner deal with this?

I've taught a reasonable amount of Victorian and some Regency literature and have casually read a decent amount of non academic history of the Victorian and Regency eras. A common trope I've seen is of a rakish character or a spendthrift couple running up huge debts with various vendors (especially tailors) and basically just not paying. Sometimes the character is shown as dying in penury but at other times they just seem to carry on in the same style as always, just ignoring or stringing along the vendors who provide their goods and services. What's more this seems to be seen as if not typical at least not unusual.

Was this sort of casual attitude toward payment for goods and services on the part of the upper classes an actual thing?

I have discovered Baronets in my ancestry on my father’s side. The problem is, I don’t know what a Baronet is. Can you help?

As the title states, I have been tracking my ancestors on Ancestry and have come across Baronets on my father’s side. I only looked into it after noticing there are at least three generations with the title β€œSir”. All I know is it is some sort of rank of nobility in the British hierarchy.

I found a blurb about my ancestor on Wiki, who was the 1st Baronet of Barras in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It reads as follows:

β€œThe Ogilvie baronetcy of Barras, Kincardine, Scotland was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 5 March 1662 for George Ogilvie for his defence of Dunottar Castle against Cromwell and the preservation of the regalia of Scotland in 1661-62.”

I’m guessing the Cromwell stated is in reference to Oliver Cromwell, who I have read about as a fierce enemy of King Charles 2nd (who my ancestor was a known supporter of) and even forced him into exile. Could someone with more knowledge fill me in on the title of Baronet, how it relates to my ancestors and how I can find out more!

Any and all information is a massive help!
