American Viscountess

A weekly History, Society and Culture podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
When I married into the British Aristocracy it was the start of a wonderfully exciting journey, if a little daunting. I became a Viscountess – and for an American girl from a small town outside Chicago, it was quite a shock. I live with my husband, Luke – heir to the Earl of Sandwich- and our family at Mapperton House in Dorset.  Mapperton is a glorious sandstone house house dating originally from the 1540’s. It is known as Britain’s Finest Manor House and is filled with wonderful treasures collected by Luke’s ancestors.  Living in a place like this is a joy and but also a challenge and every day we’re aware that we are preserving a very special part of Britain’s heritage.  Mapperton has opened up an extraordinary new world for me and I can’t wait to share it with you all – so if you love castles and manors and stately homes as much as I do, please join me as I head off to some of the Britains most spectacular historic homes …On these trips, I’ll be meeting other owners who live and manage these large houses and estates as well as some of the fantastic people who work there too. With them I’ll be exploring the history, the landscapes, the innovations of generations past and present.  I’ll be sure to roll up my sleeves and help with a few jobs along the way.So please join this American Viscountess as I journey into the countryside in search of some of Britain’s Finest Historic Houses.
