The special remainder to the Barony of Rayleigh
From the "London Gazette" of 14 July 1821 (issue 17724, page 1462):-
"The King has....been pleased to direct letters patent to be passed under the Great Seal, 
granting the dignity of a Baroness of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland to
Charlotte Mary Gertrude Strutt (commonly called Lady Charlotte Mary Gertrude Strutt), and
the heirs male of her body lawfully begotten, by the name, style, and title of Baroness Rayleigh,
of Terling-place, in the county of Essex."
David Bertram Ogilvy Freeman-Mitford, 2nd Baron Redesdale
Redesdale was the father of the famous Mitford sisters. He was always known to his children as 
'Farve' (naturally, his wife was "Muv'). Although he was only semi-literate, he made life 
interesting for his children, providing them with mongooses as pets. A keen huntsman, he
sometimes used the girls as the prey, although they seemed to have enjoyed this. 
His Lordship had no time for books, or for any form of education that might be obtained from 
them. On one occasion, Lady Redesdale read Tess of the d'Urbervilles to him. He was so upset
by the fate of Tess that his wife explained to him that the book was fiction. Redesdale was
amazed. 'What! The damned fellow made it up?' After that he never looked at another book
until his daughter Nancy used him as a character in some of her books. However, he was furious
when he found out that he didn't have a part in her biography of Madame de Pompadour.
Of his seven children, the only son, Tom, was the sole child to receive a formal education - the
girls were not educated at all. Lady Redesdale had some quirky ideas on child-raising, particularly
with regard to diet and health. She insisted that the children observe the ancient Jewish dietary
laws. She inherited this belief from her father, Thomas Gibson Bowles, MP for King's Lynn 1892-
1906 (qv). She called for medical attention only in extreme emergencies, but any medicines the
doctor prescribed were poured down the sink once the doctor had departed.
