I fear these tarted-up show-horse ersatz Lords of the Manor are just sub-enfeoffed disposable mannequins, while the true Masters of the shires, and counties, laugh all the way to the bank far from the madding crowd.

cheers, Bill

p.s. I found this broader usage of 'demense' very interesting.
«When I consider my brief span of life, swallowed up in an eternity before and after, the little space I fill, and even can see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant, and which know me not, I am frightened, and am astonished at being here rather than there; for there is no reason why here rather than there, now rather than then.» Blaise Pascal
