About Fake Titles

There are many people talking about “fake titles”
One of the most prominent is Richard, 7th Earl of Bradford who runs FakeTitles.com

Several people have commented on the fact that he says when spoken to that “All titles you buy are fake” and “All other websites” are cons, and yet he does recommend one company in the UK

The website he runs is very geared around Scottish Titles, and the company he recommends does sell them.
We don’t know if there is a business relationship between these companies.

Clearly if one company is legitimate, there are others, (in no market is there only one particpant), in our view.
We’re also clear that the UK Trading Standards is very aggressive at stopping anything illegal, and the titles business is very mature and when you do proper independent research you can and do find genuine titles.

One person asked “Why Does he use his own ISP?”

  1. I can assure you that I do not have any business arrangement with anyone over the sale of titles.

    If I told people where to go to buy one on the website, that would be a different matter, but I deliberately don’t. However, if they contact me then I do tell them what the website is.

    The fact is that you can buy genuine Lordships of the Manor, however, they are not titles.

    I would therefore request the removal of what you have mentioned.

    PS. We do not have our own ISP, we contract out the hosting of our websites.

  2. What is great is that it is clear that there are legal titles for sale as Richard Bradford has confirmed – so there is a legitimate way to buy a title. Thanks Richard

  3. Lordships of the Manor are also available to purchase and recognised by the crown, queen of England and even the Land Registry in some cases. Lordships of the Manor are genuine titles.

  4. If they are genuine Manorial Titles, then that is the case, however, they are are not actually titles and you cannot use Lord or Lady in front of your name. There also needs to be proof provided of an unbroken history of ownership. The British Embassy in Washington puts out a very simple message of explanation, as follows.

    Misleading advertisements for lordships of manors sometimes appear in the media and on the internet. A manorial lordship is not an aristocratic title, but a semi-extinct form of landed property. Lordship in this sense is a synonym for ownership. According to John Martin Robinson, Maltravers Herald Extraordinary and co-author of The Oxford Guide to Heraldry, ”Lordship of this or that manor is no more a title than Landlord of the Dog and Duck.” It cannot be stated on a passport, and does not entitle the owner to a coat of arms. Beware also of websites selling completely bogus British titles.”
