The big argument is all about the Duchy being the whole of Cornwall, somewhere along the way it went private in secret. After successive Dukes took everything they could lay their hands on, the current one became a property tycoon with what was left.

Looking at the Bona Vicantia website I found the following: http://www.bonavacantia.gov.uk/default.asp?PageId=1324

v) If the company's last registered office and the asset was in the Duchies of Cornwall or Lancashire its assets fall to be dealt with by Messrs Farrer & Co, Solicitors, of 66 Lincolns Inn Fields, London WC2A 3LH. The Duchy of Cornwall comprises the County of Cornwall. The Duchy of Lancaster comprises the Counties of Lancashire, Merseyside and parts of Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Cumbria. Further details as to the precise boundaries of the Duchy can be obtained from the Duchy Office, 1 Lancaster Place, Strand, London WC2E 7ED (tel: 020 7836 8277).

So the territory of Cornwall is a Duchy when it suits the Duke but just an English county when not. Is the Duchy a territorial body of governance or a private property company? Wouldn't it be great if Cornish companies could have the same benefits for their businesses?


This part is quite interesting, it places Cornwall outside of england.

"The jurisdiction of the Treasury Solicitor is therefore geographical. If the asset in question is situated outside England or Wales the Treasury Solicitor has no jurisdiction to deal with the asset."

I was wondering if this thread could be moved to the 'legal status of the Duchy of Cornwall' section?

You might know this website already but if not it's a useful and concise introduction to the constitutional history of the British and Irish Isles: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/britishisles/

The second last doesn't mention Udal Law though, which is in a comparable position to Cornish law.

It's interesting what you can find on the governments own statute law database: http://thecornishdemocrat.blogspot.com/2008/01/identity-and-law.html
