House Lestrade are a ruling noble family with roots in the Isle of Skye, their fiefs have included the Duchy of Skye, the Duchy of Summer and the Lestrade Motors manufacturing concern.

Archon Robert Steiner appointed the Lestrade family to the Dukedom of Skye around 2504 for their loyalty and support. He also made full reparations to Skye to help them rebuild following the fighting. The brief Lyran Civil War was over.[1]

With the death of Duke Aldo Lestrade IV in the late 3020s the Lestrade family fell from grace, and control over the Dukedom of Summer acquired by the Hayne family, an old Summer family that had dominated the polar continent of Aberdale for a long time.[2]
