Aside from the fact that they have no heirs, I followed the line of Earls of Egmont down, and at one stage, I think the 5th Earl of Egmont died without children, and the title travelled over to a half first cousin, once or twice removed. Wouldn't that happen in this case ? Or ? And if so why not.
Sorry, If I sound uninformed but I am.
I am writing a report for work about Mt Taranaki in New Zealand, the Mountains other name is Mt Egmont, named after the 2nd Earl of Egmont. I thought it might be a good side line, because the report is about political issues.
Earls of Egmont, Earls in General ... Anyone in the know about extinction.
Please and Thank you
