The Norman Yoke: Britain’s landless serfs, owned by foreign mercenary landlords

By Thom Forester – 1st February 2018
​When the late Gerald Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster -often credited with being ‘Britain’s riches man’- was asked what advice he had for young entrepreneurs, Mr. Grosvenor told The Financial Times, “Make sure they have an ancestor who was a very close friend of William the Conqueror.”

Although the Grosvenor family dates back to the Norman Conquest. Most of their fortune is rooted in the 1677 marriage of Sir Thomas Grosvenor to the 12-year-old Mary Davies, heiress to 430 acres of boggy marsh between what is now Knightsbridge and the Thames in London’s West End. This bog would later became some of the most expensive real-estate in the world.

In 1066-7 William the Bastard declared that all land, animals and people in the country belonged to him personally. This was as alien to these Isle’s laws and customs as the colonial land-grabs were to the First Nations of America. Over a very short space of time, we went from a country in which >90% of people owned land, to a country of landless serfs, themselves owned by foreign lords. Our lands were parcelled up and given as payment to Williams mercenaries.

Still today, the monarch’s land monopoly remains, in theory and practise, a legal reality. Most of the largest land-owning families are direct descendants of the Norman Yoke and William the Bastard’s 22th great-granddaughter sits upon the ‘English’ throne. Meaning, in this ‘property owning democracy’, land distribution is -for the most part- still determined by ‘Right of Conquest’. Important to bare that in mind… especially if you run out of space whilst pegging your washing out on that increasingly thin-blue-line! 😉

In 1872 the British Government published ‘The Return of the Owners of Land’, only the second audit of land to have taken place in British history, the other being the Domesday book. After 2 years of gathering all the information the returns found that 1 million people owned freeholds, about 5% of the population. 10 Dukes owned over 100,000 acres each with the Duke of Sutherland owning 1,350,000 acres (1/50th of the entire country). Return of Owners of Land, confirmed that 0.6 per cent of the population owned 98.5% of the land and half of Britain was owned by 0.06% of the population. These findings are still well hidden till this day. 

The reason for all this secrecy is because Britain has the worst land-distribution of any country on Earth (except Brazil). As it stands, AT LEAST 70 per cent of land in the British Isles is owned by fewer than two per cent of the population. Meanwhile Britain’s 16.8 million homeowners account for barely 4 per cent of the land between them… which is about the same amount as is ‘owned’ by the Forestry Commission.

I have to thank the late Gerald Grosvenor for his honesty, at-least he didn’t attribute his vast fortune to some ‘divine right’… although, he may as well have -it’s not like you peasants are gonna do anything about it… ARE YOU?!

  1. Gerald Grosvenor is pictured in his ‘Most Noble Order of the Garter’ attire. The motto ‘Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense’ is in French and translates as ‘Shame on He Who Thinks Bad of IT’.

    What is ‘IT’ and why the Garter reference?

    The Order was founded in 1348 and is the most prestigious ‘British’ Order of Knights.

    Past Knights of the Order of the Garter also included the following Holy Roman Emperors!:

    Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor 1368–1437
    Albert V, Duke of Austria 1397–1439
    Later Albert II, Holy Roman Emperor
    Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor 1415–1493
    Maximilian, King of the Romans 1459–1520
    Later Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor
    Charles, Infant of Spain, Archduke of Austria and Duke of Burgundy 1500–1558
    Later Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor
    Ferdinand, Infant of Spain, Archduke of Austria 1503–1564
    Later Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor
    Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor 1527–1576
    Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor 1552–1612

  3. Shortly after the Norman Conquest a motte and bailey castle was constructed at Hawarden, North Wales by Hugh Lupus, Earl of Chester (Hugh d’Avranches) 1047-1101

    The Dukes of Westminster (Grosvenor’s) are descended from Hugh Lupus.

    Modern day pictures of Hawarden Castle Main Gate clearly show the Double Headed Eagles of the Holy Roman Empire, the ‘Leg of Italy’ and the ‘Hand’ (a sign of the Roman Legion often displayed on Legion standards).

    Does the Roman Empire have a hand in any of this modern madness?

    Two books available for free download provide an alternative narrative with the Roman Empire at the heart of things.

    Has the Phoenix reincarnated?

    1. I have my doubts that the Phoenix was ever extinguished – rather it shifted it’s M.O. from pure militarism to psychological warfare after the success of the Flavian ‘messiah’ – I think they met some pretty fierce resistance during the so-called dark ages, coming from the Old Religion which clung on in the deepest parts of the ‘celtic’ fringes, but by and large, it’s still the Caesar’s and their money-men in charge today…

      Fascinating though, I’ll have to do some more digging into ‘Lupus’ and his line of wolves…

      Thank-you for that!
