Downton Abbey Wiki

Madeleine Allsopp (born circa 1902 to 1905) is the daughter of Lord Aysgarth and a friend of Rose MacClare.


Madeleine's father holds a barony in the English peerage. The daughters of Viscounts and Barons (the two lowest ranks of peers in the British peerage) are not entitled to be called "Lady [First name]" like the daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls, but are instead "the Honourable [First name] [Last name]". Thus, as the daughter of a Baron, Madeleine is "the Honourable Madeleine Allsopp", rather than "Lady Madeleine." Nevertheless, as the daughter of a peer, Madeleine is automatically eligible to make her debut into society and be presented at court.
