Just a short note:
The earldom of Oxford and Asquith is not the same as earldom of Oxford. They are two different earldoms.
The Oxford earldom has expired, all claims ended 100 years after the last earl. No then informed - living Vere house member wanted the responsibilities, titles or pressures, public options, civil wars caused social changes and the ideas of financial empires force the family to reach in new directions.
In the 1700-1800's many Vere (or de Vere's) sort gold as a means to re-create respectability. The seeking for wealth was a new concept for many Vere's as they held on to the past which has its origins in Military Christian Templar Grail and before that Ancient White Greek history.
It could be said that they experienced a clash of ideas, clash of cavitation, replacement of the new for old. Like today between the first world and the third world.
