In October 1999, Britain’s High Court ruled the Seventh Earl of Lucan officially dead even though his body had not been found. Lord Lucan’s estate, valued at less than £15,000 was released to executors. Lady Lucan told The Times that she hoped that would, “put an end to it.” Although the death was made official, the Seventh Earl of Lucan’s son George Bingham was unable to become a member of the House of Lords because there was no “definitive proof” that his father was dead.
I wonder who the ground rents now go to.
