What comes to your mind when you think about the title Lord?
Perhaps you think about privilege, the aristocracy or the elite few of society. Or maybe you think about traditional old English families with their inherited wealth and status.
Lordships have been around for centuries and have associations with nobility and English tradition. But it was William the Conqueror who increased their popularity. He bestowed titles on a number of his followers and supporters after he came to power in 1066. What’s more, by 1086 when the Doomsday Book was commissioned, at least 13,000 titles were recorded.
How to become a Lord in modern England
As you know, the title Lord is still in use in modern English society. For example: Followers of hit show The Apprentice will be familiar with Lord Alan Sugar. The famous World War 1 recruitment poster that announced, “your country needs YOU” featured the military leader Lord Horatio Kitchener. Lord Snowdon is the famous photographer who was once married to Princess Margaret. And the international ambassador for the Wedgwood pottery company is hereditary peer Lord Wedgwood.
These four famous Lords have a title of nobility and became a Lord because they either:
1: Inherited their title: For example, hereditary peer Lord Wedgwood became a Lord following the death of his father when the title passed to him.
2: Were given a life peerage: The Queen can also make someone a Lord. She bestows Life Peerages following recommendations by the Prime Minister or the House Of Lords Appointments Commission. These people often sit in the House of Lords and include the likes of Lord Sugar.
BUT there is a third route…
