Encyclopedia > Lord Hastings

The title Baron Hastings is an ancient one in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1295 by writ. The third Baron was created Earl of Pembroke, but the earldom became extinct in 1389, when there were no heirs of the first Earl surviving. At the death of the fifteenth baron in 1542, the barony went into abeyance for over 299 years, until the abeyance was terminated in favour of Jacob Astley in 1841.

Hastings was mightily curious as to the brigand who'd done it, though there had been evidence that Lord Blakeney had a nasty temper, he couldn't image the lord doing such damage to his own kin.
Hastings winced at the arrow Emilie shot at Percy, he wished that the other boy would stop allowing himself to be shot down, but then again Hastings sensed there were some underlying tones in Emilie's remark.
Hastings scooped up the book and handed it to Emilie, "Your refinement, dear lady, was very apparent when I entered and in the most gracious way you received me. Evidently your grasp of the value of such tomes shines through." He smirked as Emilie snatched the book away.
