The Manchester History
The Choices They Made
The Manchester family line which obtained the Ducal title, were awarded the honor because they had been useful to the Crown, serving with honor in various ways.  This continued to be true for  200 years.  Think of them as U.S. elites who were routinely chosen to take positions in the Cabinet and as ambassadors.  A monarchy, like any group, feels comfortable with those they know and so believe they can trust.  But the ideas, values and standards held by the monarchy and aristocracy allowed for behavior which would revolt us today.

These standards included holding sailors, who had enlisted, onboard their military ships for as long as five years without allowing them to go onshore to see their families.  Wives and family members who wanted to see their husband, father, son, were forced to  them onboard.  There, the area available was also being used by sailors having sex with prostitutes. 

Sailors, their families, and other commoners, especially those who were poor, were viewed as a subclass withoutany finer feelings or decency. 

A revolt against these views and practices took place during the reign of Queen Victoria.  Before Victoria. the British were considered to be completely uncivilized by those in Europe and the rest of the world. The diligent efforts of many changed this - publically.      

Therefore, obtaining a title meant those holding titles were pledged to adhere to standards which would not, very likely, be acceptable to us today in multiple ways.  

This does not mean individuals who hold titles did not adhere to more humane and compassionate standards.  But holding a title cannot be understood as certifying any particularly decent behavior and the priniple of equality for all means just that.  One standard for everyone for harm done to others.  That standard must include liability for harm done to victims.  

 Below you will read about the antecedents of the Dukes of Manchester.  Clearly, they were useful to the Crown, serving in the various positions to which they were named and satisfying the Crown.  This began changing at the beginning of the 20th Century and a steady deterioration began.  

But, the allegiance of the exclusive club accorded to those who are titled, continued.   

Below is the story of the generations of Manchesters who held the Ducal title.   As you read you will see where the story begins to change.  This has been well documented in Marcus Scriven's excellent book, " Splendour & Squalor: The Disgrace and Disintegration of Three Aristocratic Dynasties."

A title is not a certification of good behavior or credibility.  But all too often, it is treated as such.  This fallacy causes real damage.  Those who trust those who are titled can be harmed and so are those who, titled themselves, fail to take action.  

The story of Alexander, 13th Duke of Manchester, has been picked as an introductory Nominee for "En-Titled Elite?"
