bullet  General Notes:

From The Times, April 8, 1946

Lord Bagot died at Blithfield, Rugeley, Staffordshire, on April 5.
The Right Hon. Sir Gerald William Bagot, Bt., fifth Baron Bagot of
Bagot's Bromley, co. Stafford, in the Peerage of Great Britain, and
tenth baronet of Blithfield (England), was born on May 13, 1866, the
fourth son of Vice-Admiral Henry Bagot and the third by his second
wife, Eleanor, daughter of Edward Sacheverell Chandos Pole, of
Radborne Hall, Derbyshire. He was a great-grandson of the first
baron, a grandson of Dr. Richard Bagot, who was both Dean of
Canterbury, and afterwards Bishop of Bath and Wells, and a second
cousin of the fourth baron, whom he succeeded on December 23, 1932.
For many years he had been a constant traveller, and when his cousin
died a fortnight passed before he was traced in France and informed of
accession to the peerage. The lands at Bagot's Bromely, near Rugeley,
came to the Bagot family in the early part of the thirteenth century,
and the family seat, Blithfield, came to the family by marriage in the
fourteenth century. Hervey Bagot of Blithfield was created a baronet
of England in 1627, and his descendant, Sir William Bagot, sixth
baronet, was raised to a baron in 1780. After the death of the fourth
baron in December, 1932, the trustees decided to sell some thousands
of acres of the family property, but Blithfield Hall and a large
surrounding area were retained. The heir-presumptive to the barony is
a first cousin once removed, Mr. Caryl Ernest Bagot, born March 9,
1877, lieutenant, late Irish Guards (S.R.).
