Earls of Effingham
The area I live in was named Beckett's Mill after a Quaker Miller, but was then renamed Effingham when the Earl of Effingham visited. I found out yesterday that the Earls of Effingham were part of the Howard Family, England's most famous recusants (Roman Catholics resisting Anglicanism). This makes me like my neighbourhood even more.
