Ten random things: May 30

Ten Earls in the Peerage of England:

  1. Edward Stanley, 11th Earl of Derby (1689 – 1776)
  2. Louis de Duras, 2nd Earl of Feversham (1641 – 1709)
  3. Hubert de Burgh, 1st Earl of Kent (before 1180 – 1243)
  4. Robert Sidney, 4th Earl of Leicester (1649 – 1702)
  5. Anthony Woodville, 2nd Earl Rivers (ca. 1442 – 1483)
  6. Reginald Capell, 9th Earl of Essex (1906 – 1981)
  7. Sackville Tufton, 8th Earl of Thanet (1733 – 1786)

  9. Thomas Montacute, 4th Earl of Salisbury (1388 – 1428)

"Sackville Tufton" is about the most British-sounding name I've ever run across.
