Unfortunately the same could be said of the 4 th Duke’s management of the Estate, and his son George proved little better. When the 5 th Duke of Gordon died in 1836 he owed the Royal Bank of Scotland £45,000 (over £2,000,000 in today’s money). The Estate now passed to George’s nephew, the Duke of Richmond, who took the ancient name of Gordon. So began a hundred year struggle to maintain the Georgian splendour of Gordon Castle in times of great social and political change.

During the Great War (1914-1918) the Castle, like the fictional Downton Abbey, was used as an Auxiliary Hospital for the treatment of wounded soldiers returning from the trenches. The inter-war years that followed were a period of decline for many of the great houses across the United Kingdom, and so it proved to be for Gordon Castle. In 1938, following crippling death duties, Frederick Gordon Lennox, 9 th Duke of Richmond, 4 th Duke of Gordon (in the 1836 creation), was forced to sell Gordon Castle and all his Scottish estates. The Castle now fell into disrepair.

Salvation came after the Second World War (1939-1945) when Lieutenant General Sir George Gordon Lennox, grandson of the 7 th Duke of Richmond, brought back the Castle and began its renaissance from crumbling mansion into a more modest, if equally beautiful, family home. His son, Major General Bernard Gordon Lennox, continued the good work and today his grandson Angus and wife Zara are the successful guardians of Sir George’s fine legacy.

Duke of Somerset is a title in the peerage of England that has been created several times. Derived from the county of Somerset , it is particularly associated with two families: the Beauforts who held the title from the creation of 1448, and the Seymours from the creation of 1547, in whose name the title is still held. The present dukedom is unique, in that the first holder of the title created it for himself in his capacity of Lord Protector of the Kingdom of England , using a power granted in the Will of his nephew King Edward VI .

The only subsidiary title of the Duke of Somerset is Baron Seymour , which is used as a courtesy title by the eldest son and heir of the Duke. This courtesy title is the lowest in rank of all heirs to Dukedoms in the peerages of the British Isles, yet a Lord Seymour's precedence is higher than his title suggests, by virtue of the seniority of the Dukedom of Somerset (the only more senior non-royal duke is the Duke of Norfolk ).

The ducal seat is Bradley House in Maiden Bradley , west Wiltshire , with a secondary estate at Berry Pomeroy Castle , Totnes , Devon . The principal burial place for the Seymour family today is at the Church of All Saints, adjacent to Bradley House; the church and the family cemetery can be reached from the grounds of Bradley House via private access.

I t may not be a solution open to every warring couple, but the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk have saved their marriage by spending five years living in separate wings of their 11th century castle.

Edward and Georgina Fitzalan-Howard announced in 2011 that they had decided on a “trial separation” having grown apart after 24 years of marriage.

B ut while that would normally mean one party moving out of the marital home, the couple’s huge family seat of Arundel Castle in West Sussex enabled them to live separately under the same roof by having one wing each, with neutral territory in between.
