Revealed: Illegitimate Son Who Inherited '£50m' Stately Home After DNA Test Has Already Moved In With His Girlfriend And Son

Care worker, 31, has newborn son to pass £50m stately home to
Jordan Adlard Rogers, who inherited a stately home after a DNA test proved he was the illegitimate son of a wealthy landowner, is making the most of his new-found fortune. He spent years struggling to make ends meet while working as a care worker, but his life has now changed dramatically. 

The 31-year-old (pictured to left and with his girlfriend Katie Hubber, middle) has now moved into the lavish 1,536-acre country estate (inset) between Helston and Porthleven in Cornwall following the death of its owner Charles Rogers (top right). 

Enjoying his newfound wealth and comfort, Jordan said he was immersing himself in a new way of life, which includes leaving his job as a community support worker. Boasting that he 'doesn't need to work anymore', he said he was happy to simply live off the proceeds of the estate - a reported £1,000 a week from rent and investments.


The father-of-one has certainly got his feet under the table since taking over the manor, installing a home gym (bottom left) just feet away from the historic mansion building. He described 2019 as the start of 'massive new beginnings' and shared images of a new Mercedes C63 outside the property (bottom right), adding: 'Seeing if the merc suits the house.'

The first known owner of the historic estate (pictured today) was John de Penrose, in 1281. It remained in the Penrose family until it was bought in the 1770s by Hugh Rogers for £11,000

However, he may not be aware that it was stipulated when the property was donated to the National trust that no activities are allowed on the water, meaning fishing, swimming and boating are banned.
It has been quite the turnaround for former Porthleven FC defender Jordan, who was living in a council house before swapping it for the stunning estate at Penrose. 
The family seem to be enjoying the high life following the sudden windfall, with Jordan and partner Katie enjoying a celebratory trip to New York in December.
Jordan announced his new life to friends on Facebook by changing his profile photo to that of Penrose Estate, prompting dozens of messages of congratulations. 
Addressing his followers, he said: 'Thanks everyone been hard three months or so fighting for what is truly mine. And closure on who my father was and family.'
Labourer friends joked that the home needing a new roof and radiators in a bid for his custom, while one wrote: 'Lord Jordan will have a bloody cleaner now!' 
One friend said 'Christmas dinner at yours please, let your peasant family come over once in a while please' while another said 'Chuffed for you Lord Adlard.
'I reckon a nice MR2 turbo on the drive wouldn't go a miss.'

Boasting that he 'doesn't need to work anymore', Jordan said he was now happy to simply live off the proceeds of the estate – a reported £1,000 a week from rent and investments. 
Jordan claimed he had spent several years trying to prove its previous owner, Charles Rogers, was his real father, but Mr Rogers refused to give a DNA sample.
He claims he wrote several letters in his twenties with no reply and came close to giving up.
However last year he decided to write one more letter and enclosed a DNA kit, and was shocked to receive a reply from a lawyer explaining that Mr Rogers had died.
The landowner was found dead in his car from a drug overdose on the estate in August at the age of 62 and a test was carried out that proved the pair were related.
With Charles's mother and brother also have passed away, Jordan was left as heir to the grand estate.
Despite tests proving that Jordan was related to the wealthy landowner, he still faced objections from other members of the Rogers family that he should inherit the land. 
And now he will have someone to pass the lavish property onto one day after having a baby boy called Joshua last month with Katie.
