View Profile

The title, “Lord of the Manor of Wingfield”, being the property of Wingfield Family Society, was assigned on 4 June 2016 to the elected President, Sam Curtis Batsell III, Esq., at the 30th Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. He will have the honor of being recognized as the Lord of the Manor of Wingfield for his three-year term of office with the rights and privileges thereto. At conclusion of his term as President, the title will automatically be conveyed to the newly elected President.

The Lordship of the Manor of Wingfield, situated in Suffolk County, England, went to auction, “Lot 2”, on 8 November 1989 at The Fanmaker’s Hall, St. Botolph’s Without, London, EC2 by the Surveyors Estate Agents and Valuers Bernard Thorpe of Hanover Square, London. With a successful bid of £8.000 ($14,000+), Vance G. Wingfield of Fort Worth, Texas, became the Lord of the Manor of Wingfield. This successful endeavor was possible due to donations raised from ninety generous contributors.

The Lordship of the Manor of Wingfield was then conveyed on 29 April 1991 by Vance G. Wingfield to the Wingfield Family Society, and assigned to the President of the Wingfield Family Society, Wilsie (Wingfield) Carr for her remaining term in office. Since then nine Presidents of the Wingfield Family Society have had the honor of being recognized as the Lord or Lady of the Manor of Wingfield.
