1625
Sir Henry Montague received from Charles I the title of Earl of Manchester which was altered to that of Duke 1719. The first bearer of the title was the author of a once popular devotional volume entitled Manchester al Mondo, 1633 which went through nine editions. It was reprinted in 1880 with a biographical introduction by Mr J. E. Bailey. The Earl of Manchester had no connection with the town from which he took his title, except that of sending an occasional present of game. (7)
