The 2nd duke was killed at the First Battle of St Albans on 22 May 1455 and his titles passed to his son Henry Beaufort (1436-1464) who had been known as the Earl of Dorset since his father's creation as Duke of Somerset.

[1937] OPERATING AS Edgar Mitchell and Family held a press conference that announced the begrudged closing, on Saturday October 30th, of their legendary “Lockmaster Tavern”, and renowned “Duke of Somerset Pub”, all at Bank and Somerset Streets in the Historic “Somerset House” [1896].
Despite valiant attempts, they have been unable to adapt to changing market conditions after the 2001 Smoking Bylaw, and thus the Mitchell’s have sold the properties, and their classic establishment will be no more.
An era ends as the Mitchell’s close the doors of their Centretown business after 68 years of service.
