BiographyEdit

Minor aristocrat. A "get off my land" character, his seat is Ashfordly Hall, an old country house surrounded by a large estate. He complains on occasion about a lack of funds despite being able to employ numerous maids, housekeepers, gamekeepers, gardeners, chauffeurs etc. His first name is Charles and he appears to be a bachelor, though he has at least one son called Rupert, who only appeared in one episode. He also has a sister called Patricia ("Patty") who has appeared four times and a godson called Chaz Enderley (appeared in The Devil Rides Out). In the episode "Many Splendoured Thing", he 'married' a woman who turned out to already have a husband as well as a criminal past. His valuable assets have made him something of a magnet for local crime down the years and incidents involving poachings or burglaries on his estate have become one of the show's more clichéd storylines. One of his most amusing incidents was when he was sold some magic mushrooms and ran around Aidensfield with a shotgun in the episode "Get Back".
