Current High Sheriff

Humphrey David Sneyd Scott-Moncrieff DL


Humphrey’s family have lived in Staffordshire for over 300 years. His history is embedded around Staffordshire and like generations before him, he prides himself in being a Staffordshire man.

Humphrey was educated at Wellington College and after a rejection  from Sandhurst he moved back to Staffordshire and joined his father in his exotic Classic Car business. Humphrey and his father traded mostly in  Rolls Royces, their business prospered and thrived with interest from all corners of the globe.

After many years of traveling Humphrey decided to settle back in Staffordshire with his wife and young family and began to build a property business, which he has continually expanded over the years. Humphrey still owns and runs the business today.

During the years in Staffordshire Humphrey has given any spare time he has had to the community, he is heavily involved in charities around the Staffordshire Moorlands and takes his time to help out in the community, taking on roles such as Trustee of the Foxlowe Arts Centre.

Humphrey was appointed Deputy Lieutenant of Staffordshire in 2010. He now heads a panel which promotes Queen’s awards for voluntary services in the county.

Judy and his wife intend to embrace their shrivel year with enthusiasm with the help of his children William and Alexandra who are both 25.
