Cedric Errol (Little Lord Fauntleroy) Cedric Errol is the title character in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s 1886 novel, Little Lord Fauntleroy. Young Cedric is living with his impoverished, widowed mother, spreading light and cheer wherever he goes, when he is tapped by his (hitherto unknown) paternal grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, to leave America for England and learn to be a proper British earl. So young Cedric takes that sweetness and light across the pond and spreads it around the earldom. Soon all the local folks love him as well, and even the crusty old Earl himself begins to soften. Cedric is so pure and innocent a child that he believes his grandfather to be a loving and kind person. Soon, of course, Grandpa morphs into that very person by trying to live up to the boy’s expectations. Even with a fraudulent pretender to the earl-ship muddying the waters, everything ends happily. The Fauntleroy suit, as described in the book, became an instant fashion for little American boys of the day. It wouldn’t go over too well today, being a black velvet number with a white lace collar, but it apparently worked for turn-of-the-century boys. Concentrate on the “Cedric” part, not Fauntleroy.
Cedric the Saxon (Ivanhoe) Cedric the Saxon is the father of Wilfred of Ivanhoe in Sir Walter Scott’s very popular 1820 historical novel, Ivanhoe. Cedric is a Saxon nobleman who has disinherited with his son because of the latter’s allegiance to the Norman king, Richard I, having accompanied him to the Crusades. Cedric also opposes his son’s proposed marriage to Cedric’s ward, Lady Rowena, wishing to marry her to the powerful Saxon, Athelstane. Talk about interfering in other people’s lives! But that’s Cedric – he is a diamond in the rough, headstrong , stubborn and loyal. At the end of the day, after many trials, battles, crusades, carousals, kidnappings, jousts, tournaments and assorted medieval treachery, Cedric is persuaded (by King Richard, no less) to forgive his son and to bless his marriage to Rowena. This Cedric does in remarkably good humor, considering his earlier insistence on the importance to the Saxon claim to the throne. We guess a guy’s got a right to change his mind.
