“The Mmm... Lincolnshire Baron is dedicated to the excellence that is the world of Lincolnshire produce. Having enjoyed award-winning fish and chips for lunch, he's anticipating Lincolnshire sausage with mash and fresh local veg, followed by plum bread for supper. ” - Carolyn Short
William de Forz
William de Forz, Earl of Albemarle, was the only baron to side with King John after the king rejected Magna Carta. He fought against Henry III and at one point was excommunicated. He later became loyal and was an ambassador for the king. He died at sea on his way to the crusades in the Holy Land in 1242.
