Previous High Sheriffs

The Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown: there has been a Sheriff of Rutland since 1129. Under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 the office previously known as Sheriff was retitled High Sheriff. The High Sheriff changes every March/April.

After some 23 years as part of Leicestershire, Rutland became a Unitary Authority on 1 April 1997 with its own shrievalty, thus reestablishing the separate High Sheriff of Rutland.
