Footnote

The Earl of Stradbroke title was created in 1821 for John Rous, 1st Baron Rous, who had represented Suffolk as an MP in the House of Commons. He was also made Viscount Dunwich and was lord of the manor in Darsham. The Rous family seat is Henham Park near Blythburgh and is home to the Latitude Festival.
