Hi,

I'm currently writing a story and I need a title for a Duke and his heir, a Earl. I'm currently using:
  • For The Duke: Essex
  • For his son: Chelmsford

But I need fictional titles for these. The story is set in England and currently is based on these two areas. Please help me.

I know there isn't a lot to go on but I'm really stuck.

Laura

So you need another name for a Duke or an Earl? If it is set in England rather than a fictional country it would make since to use Duke and Earl since they are familiar.

No, Katie, I need an area like I need to change Essex (it's already become Suffolk) but Chelsmford needs to be changed.

In the UK a son of a Duke can be called a Earl, if not royal. The Duke of Northumberland son is known as Marquess of Stafford, but sometimes it can be a Earl.

Gotcha, I guess I'm not as familiar enough with English titles.

So Chelmsford would be an area of Essex? And now you need an area of Suffolk?

Maybe...

The Earl of Ipswich
The Earl of Stow
The Earl of Babergh

Here is a map that may help: http://upload.wikime...ndreds_1830.png
