Fjrom the special point of view of a work like the present, the most 
striking feature of the year that has passed has been the unprecedentedly large 
1 creation of new Peers. The process had just commenced with the six 
enumerated in our last year's issue, and we have now to follow this with a 
list of no fewer than twenty-eight. Other noticeable changes have been the re- 
merging of the Manners of Iladdon Barony in the Dukedom of Eutland and 
the branching- off of the Went worth Barony from the Earldom of Lovelace. 

Much as this work has been indebted to the larger ' Peerages ' of " Burke " 
and " Debrett," we are unremitting in our efforts to procure information on 
our own account, and during the past autumn we have forwarded between 
two and three thousand proofs to Peers, Baronets, Widows, and many others. 
From a large number of these we have received the most valuable and courteous 
information, through which the accuracy of the present issue is greatly im- 
proved, and for which we return our most cordial thanks ; but, on the other 
hand, there are those who never return a proof, accompanied though it is with 
a stamped and directed envelope ; and there are others again who apparently 
return it only because of that envelope and without either marking a stroke 
or appending the word "correct." One elderly Peer who falls under this 
category yet takes the pains to send us the fatherly admonition, "Would 
it not save your time and postage if you looked at the published Eoll of the 
House of Lords ? " Of course it would be idle to suppose that either this 
volume or this Preface would ever meet his eye, or we might have informed 
him at least as to the nature of the document he cites : it is issued every 
February at the price of two-pence, and we not only purchase it, but study 
it and in substance reprint it every year. We hold, however, the opinion that, 
cheap as our own volume is, its readers will expect from it something more 
than what is thus to be had for an expenditure of two-pence. 

One frequent difficulty in this connection has been that of obtaining an 
answer to a query. Particularly has this been the case in the endeavour to 
ascertain how a name or title is pronounced. In many scores of instances the 
Editor has this year pointedly put the question as to whether a given utterance 
ought to be this or that ; and far too often, though happily not nearly always, 
the request has been absolutely ignored. We presume that it must be pro- 
voking to a titled person to hear his designation mispronounced ; then why 
will he not assist the effort towards putting the annoyance out of his way ? 
Several amateurs from time to time have pressed us with their own accustomed 
methods, and in some cases they have been right, but in others egregiously 
wrong. For the future we must restrict our acceptance of their statements to 
persons who can assert acquaintance with the families themselves. 

The Post Office has recently introduced a trifling change in the style it 
wishes adopted in the addressing of letters, abolishing the use of the form 
"E.S.O." (Eailway Sub-Office) and merging it in the simpler "S.O.," 
which is requested to be regularly appended " to assist sorters and thus avoid 
possible delay to correspondence." We much fear that this aspiration will be 
but exceptionally realised ; for to those who acknowledge our immense in- 
debtedness to the Post Office, and who know the lightning-like speed at which 
the sorting has to be performed, it will surely appear to be one with which 
they ought most cheerfully to comply.

Claimant Baronets — Description of Title-page, 


Tan increase year by year in the number of aspirants to the dignity of a Baronetcy 
induced us lately to take a step requiring to be noticed. There are possibly a few 
amongst these who are genuinely entitled to the style which they claim ; but, taking 
them in the bulk, it is evidently safe to say that those who are not downright impostors 
are the deluded victims of an impractical idea. The modus dpcrandi of these latter is 
apparently this : they become aware of a lapsed Baronetcy of their own surname, the 
last holder of which was either certainly or possibly a relative ; no one else has assumed 
the title, so why should not they ? The other class, believing that a Baronet's title will 
give them a standing or secure them longer credit from tradesmen, hunt up some name 
in Burke's ' Extinct Baronetcies ' (if it does not happen to be their own, what is easier 
than to make, it such ?), give it out that the latest holder left a son or brother whose name 
was never registered, and that from that son or brother themselves are descended ; 
servants and shopkeepers have perforce to give them their title, and thus a fictitious 
local position is secured, which probably suffices for the main purpose of most of them. 
Some of them tell us that they cannot afford the fees necessary for establishing their 
claim, thus ignoring the law of society that what a man cannot pay for he has to do 
without. They may say that in their case no person is injured by the unauthorised 
assumption ; but if they injure no individual they degrade and insult the Baronetage at 
large. Aspirants whose claim is good do not usually assume the title till they have 
established it, and the converse is reasonable as to those who first assume what they 
know they never can establish, A Mr. Robert Dennis, who has gone deeply into the 
.subject, lately wrote to The Times characterising the mass of these pretenders as a race 
of unmitigated scoundrels ; whilst the Editor of ' Dod's Peerage ' in a subsequent letter 
stated that if an investigation wei-e instituted there would probably be as many as fifty 
who would go by default. There are a few " Ladies " entered in West-End Directories 
but in no ' Knightage,' so that they would do well to establish their credentials. 



There is liere either latent or patent a considerable amount of illustration of the following pages. 
Turning first to the corners, we have, as now notified, representations of the Stars of the Order of the 
Garter ^the Thistle, St. Patrick, and the Military Division of the G.C.B., exhibiting the correct form of 
a Maltese Cross (the clefts in which are, however, in some cases deeper) . Next as to the coronets in the 
oval design surrounding the letter-press,we need only remark that "Nephews " corresponds to "Princes 
and Princesses of the Blood," and "Itoyai Dukes" to "Princes of the Blood Royal," whilst the 
f Cap of Dignity " or "of Maintenance " has been not only a head-dress of Royalty (much favoured 
by Henry the Seventh), but is met with in the coats of arms of forty of the nobility, including 
the Dukes of Norfolk, Hamilton, Richmond, Grafton, St. Albans, Leeds, Rutland, and Northumber- 
land, together with several Peers so recently created as Barons Howard of Glossop, Norton, 
Brabourne, and Playfair : it is borne also by twenty-one Baronets. As to the Archbishop's mitre, 
which some protest ought in nowise to differ from a Bishop's, our remarks under the headings of these 
two Orders will suffice to make our position clear in the matter. The intermediate devices connected 
by chainwork are intended to show the forms of the Collars worn by the respective four Orders of 
Knighthood just described, to each of which belongs that quarter of the Collar lying nearest to its own 
figured Star. < Thus perpendicularly under the Garter corner is a medal-garter depicting one of the 
twenty-six which are worked into the actual Collar ; and on each side of it, though interrupted by the 
coronets, is a true-lovers' knot as described in loc. The adjacent upper quarter is devoted to the 
Thistle, and exhibits the device of that symbol with the intervening sprigs of rue as they are found in 
the Collar of the Order. Against the quarter of St. Patrick will be found the harp, rose, and knot, 
the series of which three make up the St. Patrick Collar. Lastly, against the Bath comer we have the 
crown of four arches (which we have ventured to call the Albert Crown from its having been the form 
worn by the late Prince Consort), the device of rose, thistle, and shamrock, and the knot. The 
entire chainwork,. being double, may also be said to belong more particularly to this Order, as in 
the Collar of the Garter it appears on the inner margin only, and in those of the other two Orders the 
objects are attached together by their edges and without chains. Surmounting the entire oval of 
the title-page are the St. Edward's or Imperial Crown, and the Sceptre Royal.

The ( Kingdom, its Rulers, and Their Titles.— An English Sovereign ia now 
Sovereign of the entire United Kingdom, but, as all are aware, this has not always 
been the case : in Scotland the sovereignty was not amalgamated till 1603 and the 
countries with their Parliaments not till 1707, whilst in Ireland the country was first 
subdued by Henry the Second and the Parliaments remained distinct up till the close 
of 1800. Eor three centuries from the Plantagenet times the English Kings were styled 
"Lords of Ireland;" Henry the Eighth was the first to substitute the title of King; 
but this remained a separate clause in the royal list of honours until the Union of 1801. 

King George the Third at his death left seven sons, of whom the first and third 
succeeded him as the Fourth George and William. Both of these, however, died 
without leaving issue, as had the second son, the Duke of York, already before them. 
The fourth son, the Duke of Kent, had also passed away (only six days before his 
father), but he left, as his only offspring, the Princess Victoria, our late Queen, 
who, by the law of succession, took precedence of the fifth son. 

The words "Defender of the Faith" were originally bestowed upon King Henry 
the Eighth by Pope Leo the Tenth, in recognition of his pronouncement against the 
doctrines of Luther ; but upon Henry's turning Protestant the Pope withdrew the 
title, upon which the imperious monarch got it renewed by his own Parliament. The 
title of " King of France," which had been borne from the time of the Third Edward, 
was dropped by George the Third at the Union. Up to the death of William the 
Fourth our Hanoverian Sovereigns were also Kings of Hanover, but the Salic Law 
excluded her late Majesty from that rule, so the fifth son of George the Third, Ernest, Duke 
of Cumberland, came to occupy that position. He was succeeded by his son as George 
the Fifth, who, in 1866, relinquished his crown at the fiat of Prussia. 

Regalia. — The robes and insignia worn by His Majesty on state occasions are 
those of the Sovereign of the Order of the Garter, but the term " Regalia " is under- 
j stood to apply only to the crowns, orb, sceptres, swords, and spurs. Of the crowns 
more or less familiar to us we note the St. Edward's, the Heraldic, Queen Victoria's, 
and King Edward's. The last of these, however, is practically identical with the second, 
and to avoid confusion between "King Edward" and " Saint Edward," we shall in the 
further portions of this Introduction designate the form of crown worn by our present 
Sovereign by the older term " Heraldic," and for the same reason we shall apply the 
word "Imperial "to that of his early predecessor. The Heraldic or King Edward's 
Crown (figured at top of title-page) has its surmounting "arches" rising sharply from 
their bases to an elevated summit ; the well-known Imperial or St. Edward's Crown has 
these bulging at first outwards, and then brought back and forming a summit slightly 
depressed at the centre ; whilst in the Victoria Crown they rose almost perpendicularly 
to the bend, at which they were nearly square. The Heraldic Crown was so styled 
from its adoption upon royal arms, coins, and so forth, but its contour was followed in 
the miniature " half-crown " worn on semi-state occasions by her late Majesty. The 
term "an imperial crown" is often applied vaguely to any regal crown as distinguished 
from a coronet, but in this Introduction we shall use it exclusively of St. Edward's 
Crown, which was - so called from a supposed resemblance (though a very remote one, 
for the original had probably no " arches ") to the one worn by Edward the Confessor, 
and before him by Alfred the Great. It has the minor distinction of having the upper 
rim of its principal circle entirely even, whilst those of the Victoria and King Edward's 



Crowns are wrought into festoons ; all three concur in possessing upon this rim four 
crosses-pattee alternating With four fleurs-de-lis — the former ornaments denoting the 
Sovereign's religious headship, and the latter being a survival of his French dominion. 
The crown in each case is wholly of gold, but covered over in every part with a blaze of 
jewels. The four crosses-pattee are frequently called Maltese crosses, but we believe 
incorrectly* their limbs not being cleft at the extremities. The arches rise from behind 
the crosses, and above their intersecting point over the crown of the head is a miniature of 
the "orb" to be presently described — both arches and ball being completely overlaid 
with jewellery. The entire crown of Queen Victoria contained nearly 2800 diamonds 
(brilliant, rose, or table), 377 pearls, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, and 5 rubies, including 
one stated to have belonged to the Black Prince. Its weight was 3II). 3J0Z. troy, and we 
read that a crown worn in mid-English history scaled up to something over 7lb., whilst 
even that of George the Fourth weighed silb. 

Next among the insignia comes the Orb or Mound (the latter word derived from the 
French monde, so that the idea of a ivorld-wide domination is implied equally by either 
name). This is a somewhat ponderous emblem of sovereignty, consisting of a globe 
6 inches in diameter surmounted by a cross, which brings up the entire device to a 
height of 11 inches. The globular portion 'is of gold, and is engirt with a band set with 
diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and pearls ; on its summit is a large amethyst, from which 
springs a golden cross bedecked with diamonds, pearls, a sapphire, and an emerald. 
Next in order we note three sceptres— the Sceptre with the Cross, or Royal Sceptre, 
2| ft. in length, borne in the King's right hand ; St. Edward's Staff (ending in an orb 
pretended to contain wood from the true Cross), over 4|ft. in length, carried before the 
King in the coronation procession ; and the Sceptre with the Dove, or the Virge, 3! ft. 
in length, placed in the King's left hand : these are of gold, set with jewels, and finished 
by a "mound," from which the dove, when there is one, appears to spring. The Queen 
Consort has also her Sceptre with the Cross and two Sceptres with the Dove, one of 
these being known also as the Ivory Rod. The Sword of State claims the next notice : it 
is girded on to the Sovereign at his coronation, and this was done even in the case of 
Queen Anne, but Victoria, who was not then out of her teens, was better satisfied by 
having it placed in her hands. There are three other swords borne before the Sovereign 
at this ceremony, but, like St. Edward's Staff, they are not personal insignia : the Sword 
of Mercy (called, like King Arthur's weapons, by a proper name, "Curtana"), an 
unpointed weapon ; the Sword of Justice to the Spirituality, which is pointed, but rather 
obtusely ; and the Sword of Justice to the Temporality, which is sharp- pointed. Finally- 
come the Spurs, called the Great Golden Spurs (used at the coronation only), which 
are without rowels, but highly wrought, and are attached to embroidered velvet straps. 
The Ring has been ranked among the Regalia, but it was not among those figuring in 
the late ceremony. The Bracelets have been wholly discontinued, but their Latin 
name " Armillee " has been confused with the " Armil " or Stole, which is called 
" Armilla " in the Gazette account of the late coronation. Other royal insignia or ac- 
cessories of that ceremony may be thus described : 

The Coronation Chair or St. Edward's Chair (distinct from both the Recognition Chair and the 
Throne) is a venerable oak structure said to have been made in the reign of Edward the First, who had 
brought from Scotland the sacred Inauguration Stone, and had it embedded beneath the seat of this 
chair. This famous stone is of a sandy granular formation, consisting principally of quartz, but with an 
intermixture of felspar, mica, and hornblende, and measuring in inches 26 x 16$ x ioi ; it is called the 
Stone of Destiny, and possesses a mythical origin. It is traced from Scotland to Ireland, thence to Spain 
( where a king of Scottish race had given it to his son, Simon Brek, whom he sent to Ireland with an army), 
and before even this it was said to have come from Egypt— in fact, it was the identical stone used by 
Jacob l'or a pillow ! Another story represents it to have been hauled up out of the sea, in the form of an 
already constructed chair, by the sailors of Simon Brek himself . Sir Archibald Geikie has thoroughly 
knocked all this nonsense on the head, for, speaking as a geologist, he pronounces the stone to have been 
almost certainly quarried in the sandstone district between Argyll and the Forth. 

The Ampul la, called also the Golden Eagle, is a golden vessel in the form of that bird, with its wings 
outspread, its feet resting upon a stand, the head made to screw off for reception of the oil, some 6oz., 
which is poured out through the beak. There is a legend that this Eagle was presented by the Holy 
Virgin to St. Thomas a Beckct, who gave it in charge to a monk of Foictiers, who again secreted it— with 
other similar treasures and a written account of the vision— in a church at that place, whence they came 
into the hands of the Black Prince, who deposited them in the Tower. 

The Anointing Oil is now pure olive ; formerly it was a marvellous compound designated chrisma or 
cream. It is consecrated previous to the ceremony. In an account of Queen Anne's coronation we read 
that the Dean of Westminster followed the Archbishop and wiped off the oil with " fine linen or fine 
Lombart wool." 

The Anointing Spoon is of pure gold with four pearls in the broadest part of the handle and finely 
chased in the bowl. Its extreme thinness makes it appear to be very ancient. Its length is about 10 ins., 
the bowl 2* ins. 

The Colobium Sindonis is a sleeveless garment of fine white linen, worn by Kings only. This is the 
first of the garments to be put on after the anointing, and it corresponds to the alb of a priest. The 
Supertunica, which follows, has short and very wide sleeves, and is made of rich cloth of gold with purple 

Relatives of the Sovereign. 


embroidered tissue. A "girdle" used iii the coronation ceremony is also called the Stole, At mil, or 
Armilla. Lastly the Dalmatic Robe is added (called also the Imperial Mantle or Pallium), which hangs 
loosely over the shoulders ; it is embroidered with golden eagles, roses, shamrocks, and thistles. 

The Ruby Ring, which has been styled by some " the wedding ring of England," is of pure gold, with at 
the back a large violet ruby marked with a cross of St. George and encircled with 26 diamonds : it is jointed 
like a bracelet to adapt it for different sizes. There is a legend attached to this ornament also. King 
Edward the Confessor is related to have been once asked alms of by a certain " fayre old man," to whom, 
having nothing else at hand to bestow, he gave this ring. Soon after this two English pilgrims happened 
to lose their way in the Holy Land, where "there came to them a fayre ancient man, wyth whyte heer for 
age," Having learnt their mishap and who they were, he " comforted theym goodly, and . . . brought 
theynl in the ryghte waye agayne . . . And whan he shold depart fro theym, thennehe tolde theym what 
he was, and sayd, ' I am Johan the Evangelyst, and saye ye vnto Edward your kyng, that I grete him well 
by the token that he gaff to me thys rynge with his own handes, whych rynge ye shalle delyver to hym 
agayne;' and whan he had delyvered to theym the rynge, he departed fro theym sodenly."— Golclene 
Legende, p. 187. 

The lung's Champion formerly figured at coronations, riding fully armed into Westminster Hall and 
challenging any gainsayer to single combat. The office is stated by Sir W. Dugdale to have been 
founded by William the Conqueror, who bestowed it upon Baron de Marmion, in whose family it re- 
mained till, by the extinction of the direct line, it passed to that of Sir John Dymoke, by one of whose 
descendants, "Frank S. Dymoke, Esq., it was held up till the last Coronation, when the decision of the 
Court of Claims against the application must be regarded as the extinction of the office itself. 

i Accession of a New Sovereign. — From the time of Henry the Eighth it has been 
a recognised constitutional principle that immediately upon the death of a monarch his 
heir becomes his already constituted successor. A meeting of the Privy Council is 
the first procedure, and Parliament is also summoned, the Commons being no longer 
subject to immediate dissolution as was the case previous to the Reform Act of 1867. 
The Councillors, Lords, and Commons are all re-sworn, and public proclamation is 
made of the accession of the new Sovereign, followed by notices of his having taken the 
oath relating to the security of the Church of Scotland, of his own choice of title, and 
of the continuance in their posts of persons in civil or military employment. A state 
procession on the next day, from St. James's Palace to the City, makes further an- 
nouncement of the change of ruler. For further details, with a full account of the 
Coronation itself , we must refer to our issues of 1903 and 1904. The Coronation Oath, 
it may be well to state, consists in a sworn affirmative response to each of the following 
questions : 

Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the people of this United Kingdom of Great Britain 
and Ireland, and the Dominions thereto belonging, according to the statutes in Parliament agreed 
on, and the respective laws and customs of the same?— Will you to your power cause law and justice, in , 
mercy, to be executed in all your judgments?— Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws- 
of God, the true profession of the Gospel, and the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law? 
And will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine, 
worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England ? And will you preserve 
unto the bishops and clergy of England, and to the Church therein committed to their charge, all such 
rights and privileges as by law do or shall appertain to them, or any of them ? 

The Queen-Consort. — When, as now, a married King occupies the throne, his consort 
holds a specially privileged position, having her own officers distinct from those of 
the King and being in a legal point a single rather than a married woman. She 
has her personal revenue from reserved portions of the rents due to the Crown, as well 
as from a variety of perquisites. She is crowned on the same occasion with the King 
himself, or by special ceremony after her marriage if this takes place after his coronation ; 
but in either case the act proceeds as performed at his injunction and not by the will of 
the people. The ecclesiastic charged with the office of crowning her is the Archbishop 
of York. The Queen-Consort's Crown, much like that of St. Edward, and known as 
"the Ancient Queen's Crown," is one of the Regalia to be seen at the Tower. 

The Queen Dowager. — This royal lady, of whom the last example was Queen 
Adelaide, widow of William the Fourth, remains in most respects in the same position 
as when she was Queen-Consort, but it is no longer high treason, as it then was, to con- 
spire her death. No man can marry her without permission from the reigning Sovereign, 
but she does not forfeit her royalty by marriage with a subject. 

The Consort of a Reigning Queen. — The Constitution has never attached any 
special privileges to this personage, conformably with the maxim that a woman can 
receive honour from her husband but cannot confer it upon him. We have had only 
three examples in our history. Philip of Spain, though designated King-Consort, and 
though the statutes were enacted under the joint names of "Philip and Mary," was 
most rigidly excluded from anything more than a nominal dignity, and in disgust thereat 
quitted England after a year. The late husband of Queen Victoria, again, after having 



for years been known simply as "Prince Albert," received the title of "Prince Consort" 
by individual creation, as he had previously received that of "Royal Highness." 
Prince George of Denmark, husband of Queen Anne, constitutes the third example. 

The Heir to the Throne. — This Royal personage is styled " the Heir 
Apparent" if a son or grandson of the Sovereign, but if any other relative, "the Heir 
Presumptive " (even if a daughter, as it is "presumed " that there may be born a son to 
displace her). In either case such personage, though still only a subject, is next in the 
realm to the Sovereign, at whose right hand he sits in assemblies of state, while to 
conspire his death or that of his consort is high treason. For the personal order of 
succession as it stands at present, see the paragraph so headed. 

The Prince of Wales.— The Heir Apparent to the Throne, if the eldest (or eldest 
surviving) son of the Sovereign, bears regularly this title, but by individual investment 
and not by birth ; hence the delay which occurred in the present instance. He is by 
right Duke of Cornwall in the Peerage of England ; Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, 
Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward or Seneschal of 
Scotland, also Knight of the Garter ; whilst at the Sovereign's pleasure he is created 
by patent Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, the patent testifying that he is con- 
firmed in the same by the "ensigns of honour, the girding on of a sword, the delivering 
of a cap and placing it on his head, with a ring on his finger and a golden staff in his 
hand, according to custom," all at the hands of his royal parents ; the additional titles 
of Duke of Saxony and Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, borne (in either the mascu- 
line or feminine form) alike by King Edward when Prince and his royal brothers 
and sisters, are an inheritance from their father and descend also to the children of His 
Majesty's brothers. The Prince is a born member of the House of Lords, and minority 
in his case does not count, though, by the present King, his seat as Prince was not 
taken until full age was attained. In the event of the decease of the Heir Apparent 
a son of his own will naturally succeed to his titles, but that of Duke of Cornwall 
cannot be borne by the son of a Prince of Wales who has died whilst such : thus George 
the Third never held the title. But a brother can succeed thereto, being the eldest 
surviving son of a King, as was ultimately decided in the cases of Henry the Eighth and 
Charles the First, and so with the present Prince, though no possible son of the late Duke 
of Clarence could have held it. The title, however, has been dormant more than once, 
and Richard the Second received it by a new creation. On the other hand, Sir H Nicolas 
notes six Royal Princes born Dukes of Cornwall who were never created Prince of Wales, 
namely, Kings Henry and Edward the Sixth, two sons (besides this latter) of Henry 
the Eighth (who died at birth or in infancy), an infant son of Charles the First, and 
the " Old Pretender," to whom, however, some do assign the title. This title of Prince 
of Wales was originally borne by those native rulers of that territory who governed 
it as suzerains of the English Crown ; and the commonly received though not 
wholly undisputed story of the transfer of this title to the heirs of the latter is that 
Edward the First, when expecting the birth of his second son, promised the Welsh to give 
them a Prince " free from any blemish upon his honour and unable to speak a word of 
English ; " and that he then sent at once for Queen Eleanor, whose child was duly born at 
Carnarvon Castle. The title thus practically dates from the year 1284, and was at 
first, as we have just seen, wholly unconnected with heirship to the throne of England, 
though in itself intended to be hereditary, the King's lands in Wales having in 1301 
been formally settled upon the then Prince and his heirs ; but upon that Prince 
ultimately succeeding to the throne as Edward the Second (his elder brother Alphonso 
having died) the title became merged in the Crown, and from that day it has in every 
instance been made a distinction of personal investiture. The above string of Scottish 
titles were conferred in 1469 upon the eldest son of the King of Scotland, and thus they 
naturally passed with James the First to the Royal House of Great Britain : in fact 
there was prefixed to them, on the union of the two Crowns, the still loftier title, 
" Prince of Great Britain and Ireland," though this has never succeeded in supplanting 
the older one. It must be observed that "Carrick" is one of the Scottish titles, 
though Irish in *ound, and even the title "Earl of Dublin," now merged in the Crown, 
was when extant a peerage of the United Kingdom and not of Ireland ; in fact, "Knight 
of St. Patrick " is the heir's only distinctively Irish honour, and the Duke of Cumber- 
land is the only member of the Royal Family who has an Irish peerage. 

The insignia of the Prince of Wales comprise in the first place the special feature known 
as the Prince of Wales's Feathers, consisting of three ostrich plumes, customarily figured 

Royal Family — The Peerage and its Degrees. 


as drooping, though in 1878 this form was abandoned for the older one in which the 
feathers are erect except just at the ends. At the base of these is an antique coronet, 
pendent from which is a scroll with the motto "Ich dien" (old German for "I serve ) 
— both feathers and motto having been taken by the Black Prince from the head of the 
King of Bohemia, who was slain in the Battle of Crecy. In 1901 there was added the 
badge of a red dragon, designed to represent the Principality of Wales. The Prince of 
Wales has also his distinctive coronet, which resembles St. Edward's Crown except 
that it possesses but a single arch (surmounted however with the orb),; and is of gold 
without jewellery. His Parliamentary mantle is adorned with five bars of ermine, 
each bar having a gold lace above it that worn at a coronation is doubled below the 
elbow with ermine, spotted diamond-wise. All these insignia, however, appertain to the 
heir to the throne, whether bearing the title of Prince of Wales or not. 

The Peincess Royal. — The Sovereign's eldest daughter bears this title, so that it now 
accrues to the Princess Louise, Duchess of Pife, whose reception of it was, however, 
deferred till November, 1905. The law hedges her about as a possible successor to the 
throne, but this privilege extends to no younger Prince or Princess. Her coronet is like 
that of her royal sisters as below. 

Remainder op the Royal Family. — Younger daughters enjoy no special precedence 
like the preceding, but simply that of near relationship to the Sovereign ; neither do 
younger sons until a dukedom is conferred upon them, when they enter the House of 
Lords as next in rank after the Prince of Wales (of course we are speaking in a 
general way, not of present conditions). Their seats in that House are to the left 
of the Throne ; but when, upon the death of the Sovereign, they are converted from 
sons into brothers, they are transferred to the first places in the ordinary ducal bench. 
This latter position is also occupied by first cousins of a reigning sovereign ; but beyond 
that grade they lose all distinctive precedence and take rank among the other Dukes 
according to the dates of their patents alone : this is at the present time the case with 
the 3rd Duke of Cumberland (whose title of "Royal Highness" is due to his father 
having been King of Hanover, for — as stated in the next sentence — that father, being 
a King's grandson and not son, was the last who would have borne it in virtue of descent 
from King George the Third). All sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, paternal 
uncles and aunts of the Sovereign are of the " Blood Royal " and are designated "Royal 
Highness,"and the latter term is bestowed also upon grandsons and granddaughters if they 
are the offspring of sons, and yet further (by decree of May 31, 1898) upon great-grand- 
children if they are children of an eldest son of "any Prince of Wales ; " but nephews, 
nieces, and cousins are Princes and Princesses of "the Blood," and, in common with 
grandchildren the offspring of daughters, are addressed as ' ' Highness " only, though the 
husbands of those daughters of ten receive by warrant the title of "Royal Highness" 
for themselves ; moreover, the title of " Royal Highness " once acquired is not forfeited 
by a change of Sovereign notwithstanding the fathers being changed from grand- 
sons to nephews. The coronets of Princes of the Blood Royal differ from that of the 
Prince of Wales in the absence of the surmounting arch with its orb, the place of this 
latter being supplied, as with coronets generally, by a golden tassel to the cap. Those 
of Princesses of the Blood Royal vary again from these in the presence of two strawberry- 
leaves in place of two of the four crosses-pattee, whilst Princes and Princesses of " the 
Blood " have strawberry-leaves in place of all four of the fleurs-de-lis. 


General Remarks. — The rules which govern the arrangements of the Peerage are 
marked by so many complications that even an expert may occasionally be perplexed. 
All Peers of England are Peers of Parliament, and have been such from the creation of 
their titles, except in those instances in which Parliament itself is the more modern. In 
Scotland and Ireland there are Peerages of equally long standing, and upon the succes- 
sive Unions of these two Kingdoms a certain number of the Peers of each were granted 
Imperial titles and summoned to the House of Lords, the new titles being sometimes 
totally different from the old, sometimes identical, and sometimes only variations in 
rank — as " Baron A." in place of " Earl of A.," or Earl instead of Marquess, at vice versa 
—the old titles subsisting by the side of the new, and remaining, when of superior rank 
. (which they most frequently are, but with numerous exceptions), the respective Peers' 
ordinary, though not official, designations. The use of the term ' ' Imperial " is convenient 


as covering three variation entailed by the Acts of Union as above : All Peers of Parlia- 
ment up to June 20, 1707, are classed as " Peers of England" and rank in precedency 
before all others of like degrees ; from that date down to the close of i8oo_ all fresh 
creations either in England or Scotland were called " Peers of Great Britain ; " and 
creations from the 1st of January, 1801, onwards, either in Great Britain or Ireland, 
are known as "Peers of the United Kingdom," save only that the Sovereign retains 
the power (provided by the Articles of Union) of creating one new Peer of Ireland for 
every three Irish Peerages of older date than the Union which had become extinct— a 
function which had been dropped by her Jate Majesty (the latest Irish creation up 
till 1898 having been that of Baron Pathdonnell at the close of 1868), but which was 
revived in the case of Baron Curzon of Kedleston, to allow of his returning to the House 
of Commons instead of entering the Lords (see immediately below). One apparent 
exception to the exclusion of non-Imperial Peers from the House is exhibited in the case 
of the Elected Representative Peers of Scotland and Ireland, who take their seats by 
their native titles, but do not hold them as hereditary members— those of Ireland as Life 
Peers, and those of Scotland for only a single Parliament unless re-elected (see further 
under " Peers Elected " ). No Imperial Peer can be elected a member of the House 
of Commons, neither can a Scottish Peer ; but an Irish Peer who has no Imperial 
title can be so elected anywhere out of Ireland itself (such election, however, would 
involve his being summoned to any royal function as an M.P. and not a Peer). Viscount 
Palmerston, so long member for Tiverton, was an eminent example, whilst more recent 
ones have been afforded by Lords Eermoy, Kensington, Muncaster, Dunsany, and the 
Earl of Cavan, and we have one at present in Viscount Valentia. 

The titles of Peers very commonly have a local connection, but below the rank of 
Dukes we find more or less numerous examples in which the personal surname gives the 
title. With the local titles, broadly speaking, the connecting preposition "of" is 
inserted (except in the conventional titles of Viscounts and Barons, where it is never 
used, though common enough in the formal language of their patents) ; whilst Mar- 
quesses and Earls who are designated by their surnames are as a rule without this word. 
But to this rule there are exceptions, for we have the " of " inserted, in spite of identity 
with the family name (itself sometimes that of a place also), in the titles Ashburnham, 
Cholmondeley, Coventry, Craven, Graham (Marquess, not Earl), Lytton, and Onslow, 
whilst it is omitted, though the surname differs, in those of Beauchamp, Brooke, Brownlow, 
Camden, Castlestewart, Cawdor, Cowley, Eerrers, Manvers, MountCashell, Sondes, 
Strange, Temple of Stowe, and Winterton. A caution must also be observed as to 
assuming too readily that a local title gives the place of the Peer's principal residence or 
other connection ; for though this has usually been originally the case yet there have been 
numerous changes of location, and in particular there appears to have been a special 
fancy in the Irish Peerage for selecting a title which was, or would appear to be, 
English or Scottish, though perhaps chosen from some obscure Irish village of identical 
name — as Caledon, Conway, Ely, Eife, Kensington, Sheffield, and Teignmouth, all of 
which titles are of Irish creation, though some of the Peers bearing them have since 
had Imperial titles also conferred. The following is a revised list of all the titles in use 

of Marquesses and Earls which omit the

Descent or succession of nobility commonly follows general rules, but there are varia- 
tions, for whilst in most cases it is limited to heirs male, in those older Baronies 
which were conferred by writ of summons instead of patent, and in Scotland in 
the cases of some higher Peerages, it is open also to females (in Ireland there is no 
female descent except in the two cases of Massereene and La Poer). When this latter 
succession prevails, it has the peculiar feature (but not in Scotland) of ignoring 
primogeniture and regarding all the daughters as co-heirs, not one of whom can actually 
obtain the title until she becomes the sole survivor, or else until the Sovereign relieves the 
dilemma by selecting one of the ladies as immediate recipient. This delay is what is 
known as a title "falling into abeyance^'' fqr which subject see below in the third 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 7 

paragraph under "Barons." A somewhat similar exercise of the prerogative to that 
by which an abeyance is terminated is the one noticed under the second paragraph of 
"House of Lords," of summoning to that assembly the eldest son of a Peer during his 
father's lifetime. The succession to different titles is likely to perplex the novice, who 
finds himself continually confronted with such statements as "The Earldom lapsed 
but the Barony passed to his relative So-and-so." There may be "limitations of 
remainder" as they are called (though " extensions of remainder" would often seem 
more correct) according to which a certain title is open to " heirs general," or the nearest 
relative whatever (female included, unless the term is "heirs male general"); or a 
"special remainder" may open a succession to any relative who may be named. But 
the ordinary law is that a title can only pass to a direct descendant of some former bearer 
of the same. Of course the direct heir comes first in claim ; if he, the eldest son, is deceased 
but leaves sons of his own, the eldest of these sons comes next ; even he has occasionally 
a son to take the third heirship ; but if there are none out of all these then the Peer's 
next surviving son is turned to, and then his sons and so on. But if there is neither son, 
grandson, nor great-grandson, then the eldest brother of the Peer is looked to for the 
succession ; then his son or grandson, then his next brother, and so on as through the 
former series. If the entire series fails to provide an heir, then the law of inheritance goes 
back the next step and seeks for paternal uncles and their sons in the same routine 
(provided that these are actual descendants of an earlier Peer of the line). But 
now suppose that the late Baron had been created an Earl, whilst his predecessors 
were Barons only; in that case, in default of either a "special" or "general "remainder, 
no one but a son or grandson of his own could possibly succeed him in the Earldom, though 
his Barony might be open as before to any one who was descended from an earlier Baron, 
as far back even as the first. The law with Baronets is the same (except that these can 
never be females, though under a few patents the male issue of females can succeed) : 
hence, on the one hand, a Baronetcy which was associated with a lapsed Peerage may be 
"liberated" and make its reappearance; whilst, on the other hand, if the Peerage 
chanced to be open to female succession it may be the Baronetcy only which expires. 

Peers possess various privileges. If members of the House of Lords they cannot be 
arrested unless for an indictable offence ; and whether belonging to that House or not, 
they can, in charges of felony or treason, be tried only by that House, all the members 
of which are then summoned (though not compelled) to attend, when each one delivers 
his verdict with the form "upon my honour," a decision being arrived at by the voice of 
the majority. The Lord High Steward (a Law Lord appointed for the occasion) sits as pre- 
sident of the court, and enquires the verdict of each Peer, beginning at the lowest rank 
and proceeding regularly up to the highest. The trial in July 1901 of Earl Russell for 
bigamy was held in the Royal Gallery, a corridor leading from the Victoria Tower to the 
House of Lords. The Lord Chancellor was constituted Lord High Steward, and a long 
white rod was handed to him at the commencement of the proceedings and broken by 
himself at their conclusion. Ten Judges of the Law Courts were called in to give advice 
in the case of legal difficulties, and about two hundred members of the House of Peers 
sat as both judges and jury, retiring, however, to that House to resolve upon their 
verdict and sentence. No similar "trial before Peers" had occurred for sixty years, 
and it is a general impression that this will have been the last. In cases of misde- 
meanour this elaborate form is not adopted, but the Peer is tried by a jury like other 
people. Nor does the aforesaid privilege of trial pertain to Scottish or Irish Peers. A 
Peer is not put upon his oath when sitting in judgment as above, nor yet in a Chancery 
suit ; but if called as a witness, either in the High Court of Parliament or in an ordinary 
civil or criminal case, the oath is administered to him as to others. He can only be 
bound to keep the peace in the Court of King's Bench or that of Chancery. Peers are 
not liable to serve on juries, and are entitled to sit covered in courts of justice. To 
the Irish barony of Kingsale and to the English one of Forester there is, moreover, 
attached the singular concession of the right to remain covered in the presence of the 
Sovereign. To assault a Peer (or even his servant in the case of a Peer of Parliament), 
or to spread a libel respecting him, is an offence treated with exceptional severity. 
And lastly, among the privileges of the noble order— availed of by the 8th Lord 
Stourton, and again by the 4th Earl Ferrers— -if a Peer is sentenced to be hanged, he 
has the consolation of swinging by a silken cord. 

The forfeiture of nobility can now only take place through attainder or death, 
though in the reign of Edward the Fourth a Duke of Bedford was deprived of his rank 
by an Act of Parliament. If an attainder is pronounced in a case of high treason, 
it annuls the title for ever (unless restored) ; but if only for felony, then if the title was 



granted by letters-patent and not by summons, its effect expires with the death of the 
Peer deprived. Similarly, if the heir to a peerage should be attainted, then in the case 

of a writ of summons no descendant of his could ever succeed to the title, though a I 
descendant through a collateral relative might revive the title if the direct heir's issue 
came to an end ; but if the peerage was held by letters-patent the attainder would 
wholly expire on the decease of the one attainted person. Several instances will be 

met with in the Dikectory of an attainder being removed by Act of Parliament; and L 

then, almost for a certainty, there will be a confusion among authorities as to how many |i 
Peers of the title there have been. 

The arms of all Peers contain "supporters " (the pair of human, animal, or mythical I 

figures on each side of the shield). Those of many Baronets are similarly distinguished, I 

not "as Baronets," we are told, but the exceptions seem too numerous, and in Scotland | 
rather the rule ; even the coronet some Baronets imitate very closely. 

Dukes. — This designation, or its Latin original Dux, is stated by Selden to have been I 

primarily used in this country as one of the appellations of an Earl ; but its first I 

employment as the title of a distinct grade was in the eleventh year of Edward the I 

Third, when the Black Prince, who was already Earl of Chester, though not as yet m\ 

Prince of Wales, was created Duke of Cornwall. In English usage it is thus less ancient t 

than either Earl or Baron, though the military term "Dux " was common even among I 

the Anglo-Saxons, whilst William the Conqueror is an early instance of a foreign Duke 1 1 

(indeed, it is remarked that the existence of the title among the Normans accounts for m 

the tardiness of its adoption in England, they being reluctant to accord to their subjects li; 

a title making these seem equal with themselves). The Duke of Lancaster (1351) was phi 

the next creation, and others followed, though so sparingly that when in 1572 the Duke 1 

of Norfolk was executed for high treason, the title became wholly extinct. It was | w t, 

speedily revived, however, under James the First, by whom the Dukes of Richmond Ml 

and Buckingham were created in 1623; whilst Charles the Second restored with full | B 

precedence the attainted dukedoms of Norfolk and Somerset, still the leading titles I 

in the English Peerage. The Duke of Norfolk (1483) is thus our Premier Duke and 1 |ja- 

Peer; the Duke of Hamilton (1643) is Premier Duke of Scotland, and the Duke of ■ 

Leinster (1766) of Ireland. The total numbers of Dukes in the three Peerages now are I 

— 22 Imperial (besides Princes of the Blood Royal), 7 Scottish (besides the heir to the 1 Hi 

throne), and 2 Irish. Dukes were anciently created by the ceremony of girding on a I I 

sword and throwing a state mantle over the shoulders. They are now, like Peers j lli 

generally, given their rank by patent. A Duke is styled in official language " Most II 

Noble," but conventionally and more commonly " His Grace ; " in very formal style h\ 

he can be spoken of as "The Most High, Potent, and Noble Prince," and by the II 

Sovereign, "Our right trusty and right entirely beloved cousin," adding "and II 

Counsellor" if of the Privy Council. The term "cousin," according to Blackstone, 11 1 

began with Henry the Fourth, who was actually related in some way with every § j 

Earl in the Kingdom, from which rank it has passed to all the others, Barons only I 

The insignia of a Duke are the coronet and mantle. The coronet, which is worn over |j| : 

a crimson velvet cap, turned up with ermine and finished, like that of the younger II 

Princes, with a gold tassel, is a circle of silver gilt surmounted by eight golden straw- Kg 

berry-leaves : it is chased, but no coronet of a noble must contain jewels. The mantle, f 1 

as worn on state occasions in Parliament, is made of fine scarlet cloth lined with white 1 

taffeta, with four bars of ermine on each side (narrow strips of black fur passing hori- I 

zontally round to the divided back of the mantle), each bar adorned above with gold I 

lace : it is tied at the left shoulder with a white ribbon. At coronations this robe gives I 

place to a crimson velvet mantle and surcoat, lined as before and edged with miniver, I 

the mantle doubled from the neck to the elbow, the cape being furred with miniver I 
pure,* and having four rows of dark spots on each shoulder. A Duchess on the same 

occasion wears a crimson velvet mantle the cape of which is furred with miniver five I 

inches in breadth, and varied (" powdered " is the technical term) by four bars of black I 

ermine: train, two yards on the ground. Her coronet is a miniature of the Duke's j 
(page 14). 

A Duke's eldest son is in courtesy " born in the degree of a Marquess," and therefore I 
follows this order immediately in the table of precedence, and yet in the eye of the law 

* Ermine takes its name from the ermine weasel, which in winter is pure white with the exception of the black 
tips of the tail : these tips are used to form the variegations in the regular ermine as well as the dark bars. 
Miniver is strictly the pure white fur of the Siberian miniver squirrel, but the name appears to be applied to 
ermine when unvaried by the black tail-tips. 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 


he is only an esquire : in legal phraseology he is accordingly termed " John , Esq. 

second title, and is treated as if he were an actual Marquess ; yet his title is often 
"Earl," once (Manchester) it is "Viscount," arid once (Somerset) only " Lord," in 
which cases he will be termed only " Bight Hon." but retain the degree of a Marquess. 
1 A Duke's younger sons are born as in the rank of Earls, though never taking the title of 
such, but simply prefixing the word "Lord "to their Christian names. So a Duke's 
daughters prefix the word "Lady," but they are "born in the degree of a Marchio- 
. ness, " and rank after these and the wives of Dukes' eldest sons ; whilst if a Duke's 
. daughter is the sole heir to his estate she ranks before the eldest son's widow. 

Maequesses. — The first known use of this title in England was on the elevation, by 
Richard the Second in 1386, of Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford, to be Marquess of 
Dublin, when the King performed the ceremony of girding a sword to his side and 
placing a golden coronet on his head. Eleven years later the same monarch made the 
Earl of Somerset Marquess of Dorset ; but no further instance occurs till the reign of 
Henry the Sixth. The word is said to be derived from Marchio, a title previously 
employed in the description of both Earls and Barons, especially of those who were 
" Lords Marches " of the frontier counties towards Wales and Scotland. The French 
form Marquis long obtained preferential use in this country and is by no means gone 
out even up to this day ; but it is strongly objected to by some, and one of the charges 
adduced against it in Thoms's ' Book of the Court ' is its frequent unwarranted adoption 
as a travelling-title — which it must be confessed is rather a reason for wishing it abolished 
than for proving it to be wrong: indeed, in old usage we have met with the form 
"Marquess" used as the feminine of "Marquis." We have, however, both here 
and in the Almanack, decided to adopt what seems to be the more favoured form 
with the upper circles. The German title corresponding to it is MarJcgraf, which 
in historical works is usually rendered "Margrave." The dignity itself has never been 
one of large occurrence among our nobility. Three times, indeed, it became wholly 
extinct (either by forfeiture or by the elevation of its possessor to a dukedom, which 
happened to the Peer who had previously been the third to be made Marquess of Dorset) ; 
but in the year 1532 the title of Marchioness was bestowed upon the daughter of the Earl 
of Wiltshire, and in 1551 the Peer who had then succeeded to this latter title was raised to 
be Marquess of Winchester, thus becoming the founder of what to this day remains our 
premier marquessate. The Marquess of Huntly (1599) is premier in Scotland, and the 
Marquess of Waterford (1789), if decided by the Poll of Marquesses so styled, is premier 
in Ireland, but the marquessate of Kildare (1761), merged in the Leinster dukedom, 
has an earlier claim if we regard the title itself. We have in all 23 Imperial Mar- 
quesses, 4 Scottish, and 10 Irish. The style of a Marquess is "Most Honourable," 
not "Most Noble," though it is stated that in some formal descriptions both he and 
an Earl may be termed " Most Noble and Puissant Prince." A Marquess is designated 
by the Sovereign, " Our right trusty and entirely beloved cousin " (see under "Dukes"). 

As to insignia, the coronet of a Marquess differs from that of a Duke by substituting 
silver balls (technically called " pearls "), slightly raised on points (as in title-page), for 
four of the eight strawberry -leaves ; whilst the robes take but three and a half bars of 
ermine or rows of spots (that is to say, four on the right side and three on the left). 
The Marchioness's coronet is by latest orders exactly like a Marquess's but much 
smaller; her robe has three and a half bars of ermine upon the miniver, which is 
reduced to four inches in width, whilst the train is a yard and three-quarters in length. 

A Marquess's eldest son is "born in the degree of an Earl," and takes usually that 
courtesy-title, though occasionally (whilst still ranking as an Earl) only that of Viscount ; 
the younger sons are born in this latter rank, but the daughters in that of Countess. In 
other respects the corresponding paragraph at the close of "Dukes" applies here also. 
See, for all degrees, the "Table of Precedency " and "Eorms of Addressing." 

Earls. — This degree is much older than either of the preceding, as well as much more 
numerous. Blackstone says that "Earl is a title of nobility so ancient that its origin 
cannot clearly be traced out. Thus much seems tolerably certain, that among the 
Saxons they were called Ealdormen, quasi Elder-men, signifying the same as Senior^ or 
Senator among the Romans : and also Schiremen, because they had each of them the civil 
government of a several division or shire. On the irruption of the Danes they changed 
the name to Eorles, which, according to Camden, signified the same in their language. 
In Latin they are called Comites from being the King's attendants. . , . After the 

io Introduction. 

Norman conquest they were called Counts* or Coxintecs from the French ; but they did not J 
long retain that name themselves, though their shires are from them called counties to 
this day." This, it is needless to say, does not imply that the same Anglo-Saxon | 
nobles retained their lands and positions under the Normans with simply an altered 
name, for we know too well how largely they were dispossessed, and that it was the 
Norman appropriators who were termed " Counts," though they speedily came to revert 
to the title habitual among the conquered people. From the Conquest to Henry the 
Third "Earls " and " Barons " may thus be said to have been the only dignities existing 
in England, that of Earl being accordingly the very highest rank of nobility then in 
English usage, so that even the Conqueror is frequently spoken of, especially by j 
William of Malmesbury, as " Earl of Normandy." There are stated to have been two jjj 
or perhaps three orders of Earls, the highest of which exercised nothing less than a 
regal jurisdiction — even having power to create Barons — within the counties of which 
they were granted seisin and possession, and which thus became Counties Palatine. A 
lower order was made Earl of a county but without this seisin of its territory and with 
only the tertium denarium or third part of the profits accruing from pleas in the county 
court; or probably in some instances there was simply made over to them a considerable 
tract of land to hold for the service rendered by the county. They were thus in some 
degree all county lords; the first to be created apart from a county was Roger 
Mortimer, made Earl of March in 1328. The rank of Earls has largely increased, till 
now in England it amounts to some two-fifths of the number of the Barons ; whilst in 
Scotland and Ireland the proportion is larger still — in Scotland, in fact, exceeding 
by three the entire remainder of the Peerage, whilst in Ireland, though not quite so 
disproportionate, it is but three short of the number of Barons. The present numbers 
are — Imperial 125 (1 female), Scottish 45, Irish 62. "For many centuries," says Sir Harris |i 
Nicolas,f "earldoms have always been conferred by letters-patent or charters. . . . 
The investiture has long been dispensed with, and the ancient practice of creating a 
person Earl of some county or town has, from the great increase of dignities in this country, 
given place to deriving the title from some village or estate, and even from the name of 
a family. In most instances the title has been limited to the heirs male of the body of 
the grantee, but remainders are by no means uncommon to the issue of a sister or 
daughter, or to some other person named in the patent." The premier earldom in the 
English Peerage is undoubtedly that of Arundel (1155), merged in the dukedom of | 
Norfolk ; but as decided by the list of Earls upon the Roll the Earl of Shrewsbury and I 
Talbot is premier, the former of his two titles dating from 1442. So in the Scottish jjj 
Peerage (the title of Mar, though dating from about the year 1100, being given precedence 1 
of 1404 only) the premier earldom is that of Sutherland (1228), now merged in an Imperial 
dukedom, but the premier Earl upon the Roll is Crawford (1398) ; and again in Ireland L 
we have been directed to the earldom of Karrik (1315?), merged in the Ormonde mar- j 
quessate, but Mr. Cokayne, though a believer in its genuineness, can find no proof as j i 
to when such title was conferred, and thus the Kildare earldom (Leinster dukedom) Ij 
must stand first in antiquity (1316), whilst the Earl of Waterford (1446), who is also 
Earl of Shrewsbury, is premier upon the Roll as he is in England. Earls, Viscounts, f 
and Barons are all designated "Right Honourable." An Earl is designated by the 
Sovereign, " Our right trusty and right well-beloved cousin " (again see under ' ' Dukes "). "! 

Under insignia we note that an Earl's coronet is very distinct from that of any other r 
rank by the fact of its eight silver balls being mounted on golden rays which reach to the jj! 
top of the cap and have small golden strawberry-leaves alternating between them. His 
mantle is distinguished from the preceding by having but three bars of ermine, &c. A f 
Countess wears a similar coronet, and her robe for coronations has three bars of ermine, \ 
a miniver edging three inches in breadth, and a train a yard and a half on the ground. !1 

An Earl's eldest son is "born in the degree of a Viscount," and regularly takes that i' 
courtesy-title; but frequently "Lord," though his rank as Viscount is unaffected. 
Younger sons are esteemed as equal to Barons, but all daughters as Viscountesses ; these 
latter also receive a preference over the former which is one of the anomalies of the Peerage 
(though only a part of that unfair elevation of daughters over all sons but the eldest 
which runs through every one of the ranks), they being designated as "Ladies" and 
"Right Honourables," while the younger sons (and their wives) are only " Honourables." i " 
Again see at the conclusion of "DukGs" and under "Peers by Courtesy "and "Addressing." M 1 

* The title "Count" is nqw purely honorary in France. 

t As the name of this learned 1; era Id is liable to be misspelt we may observe that its coiTsct awl complete form 
is Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas (familiarly " Sir Harry Nicolas," as Hood calls him in ' Miss Kilmansegg '). 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 

1 1 

Viscounts. — This degree, like that of Marquesses, has been but sparingly conferred, 
though its numbers have been almost exactly doubled during the past quarter of a 
century. The word, however, was of very ancient usage in the Latin form Vice-comes, 
Earl's Deputy or Sheriff, which was thus its original function, and it was of old feudal 
application in France ; but its first employment as designating a rank in the English 
nobility was in 1440, when Henry the Sixth elevated John, Lord Beaumont, to the title of 
Viscount Beaumont. Letters-patent were then made use of limiting the succession to 
heirs male of his body ; and this form has ever since been the one usually observed in 
the creation of any Peer. Twice the degree became extinct, but it was finally revived 
in 1550 by the elevation of Baron Ferrers to be Viscount Hereford, his successor being 
now the Premier English Viscount. In Ireland this degree is proportionally more 
numerous than in England, there being now 37 to English 41, the premier being Viscount 
Gormanston (1478) ; in Scotland, on the contrary, it numbers but four (now that that of 
Strathallan is merged in the Perth Earldom), with Viscount Falkland (1620) for premier 
upon the Boll, and Viscount Fentoun (1606), Earl of Mar and Kellie, as holder of the 
premier viscounty. At first a viscounty was simply the advancement of a barony, and then 
its superior accompaniment ; but modern Viscounts have usually no second title, though 
exceptions do crop up as in the creation in 1900 of Viscount Ridley, who is also Baron 
Wensleydale. It is stated in ' The Book of the Court ' that any English Premier on 
retiring may claim a viscounty, but in practice it would be far better to say this of every 
Speaker of the House of Commons, for, of the Premiers of the nineteenth century, we 
note three who were made Earls, one a Viscount (Sidmouth), and five who died or retired 
without any advancement, the remaining eleven having held some title of nobility upon 
entering office. A Viscount is designated by the Sovereign, " Our right trusty and 
well-beloved cousin." This form does not extend to Barons. 

The insignia consist of the coronet distinguished correctly by sixteen silver balls (this 
is the number enjoined at coronations, but fourteen may often be found in books) ; 
and of the mantle with two and a half bars of ermine {i.e. three on the right side 
and two on the left). A Viscountess's coronet is similar to her husband's, and her 
coronation robe is marked on the same distinctive rule, and with but two and a half 
inches of bordering and a train of a yard and a quarter. 

A Viscount's eldest son &nd his daughters are born respectively in the rank of a Baron 
and of Baronesses ; younger sons have no definite equivalent, now that the degree of 
Banneret is obsolete, but they come above the younger sons of Barons. All sons and 
daughters without distinction bear the title " Honourable." 

Barons. — The word "Baron" is supposed by some to have been derived from the 
Celtic Ber or Bar, which served the Romans for the original of their Baro (plural 
Barones). The Anglo-Saxons altered the title to Thegncs or " Thanes," and these terms, 
as well as the later one " Baron," were employed, both for ecclesiastics and laymen, to 
designate those men of rank who were about the King. "Baron " came thus, for a long 
period, to be prefixed to the names of saints (e.g. Baron Saint Jacques), and after it 
" Monsieur " was similarly used down to the fifteenth century : in France the nobles 
would even drop the title of " Prince " for that of "Baron," and we read that the family 
of Montmorency styled themselves "les premiers Barons de la Chretiente." A Thane 
under the Anglo-Saxons, if not a courtier as above, was required to possess "fully five 
hides of his own land," together with a church, a "borough-gate" where he could dis- 
pense justice on the Scripture model, and a " kitchen and bell-house " for the exercise of 
hospitality and the due summoning of his guests to its participation. The Normans 
either introduced or restored the term "Baron," and it is under their rule that Ave come 
to recognise the first of the three orders of Barons who successively figure in the history 
of this degree. 

These were the Barons by Tenure. Amid conflicting and obscure accounts we gather 
that at the outset these scarcely constituted an order of nobility, for, though the lowest 
of them were leading citizens, they were as distinctly subordinated to the Earls of their 
respective counties as the Knights were or came to be subordinate to themselves. But 
this low estate was only for a time, and eventually their order had grown to so com- 
manding a position in the kingdom that the term "Barons " was used conventionally for 
the entire nobility, as we find Sir Simon de Montfort, though Earl of Leicester, speaking 
of himself in the warrant issued in the name of King Henry the Third as " Simon <\e 
Montfort with other Barons," though in the same sentence he speaks of the " Ear}s and 
Barons of the realm of England." And even during the period when they had to look 
up to the Earls as their chiefs, they still held their assigned territorial baronies

immediately of the King, to whom they had in return to render a stated feudal service. As . 
they grew in importance they were summoned to attend the King's Great Councils — the 
nucleus of our Parliaments, or at least of the House of Lords, where those who were j 
"Barons and Earls" to the King became "Peers" to each other. The dignity of a 
Baron was now estimated by the number of his Knights' fees, a Knight being attached 
to each " fee " or division of his lands, and thus with his retainers contributing to swell 
the troop with which the Baron could accompany the King to war. It was now held 
that the fact of a baronial tenure of land constituted in itself a right to a writ of summons 
to the Great Council. But by the time of J ohn many of the Barons had become greatly 
impoverished in their estates, and this led those others who still retained the whole of 
their ancestral domains to obtain the passing of an enactment dividing the order into 
Barones Majores and Barones Minores, or Baronetti, who were scarcely at all higher than 
Knights, though it was impossible to deprive them absolutely of their higher title. 
These "Lesser Barons," who were called also "Tenants in Chief," appear to have 
constituted the original members of the House of Commons, the King having taken to 
summoning individually the Greater Barons, with the Earls, Archbishops, and Bishops, 
and leaving these others to be summoned collectively by the Sheriff : hence, says Black- 
stone, commenced the separation of the two Houses (accomplished 1332). As yet, 
however, the Lower House was not really established, and the Greater Barons con- 
stituted the only regular Legislature for another half-century. Baronies by Tenure 
have now been long a thing of the past, for even in 1669 it was decided that there had 
been none "for many ages," though there is still an earldom — that of Arundel — which 
is attached to the ducal house of Norfolk by the feudal tenure of Arundel Castle. 

The dignitaries of the degree which supplanted, them were the Barons by Writ. We 
have just observed that the " tenure " was regarded as giving claim to the " writ," but, 
owing to the prolonged dissatisfaction at the degraded condition of the Lesser Barons, 
it was enacted in the 49th year of Henry the Third (Dec. 24, 1264) that none should in 
future come to Parliament except " those Earls and Barons unto whom the King him- | ( ) 
self vouchsafed to direct his writ of summons." This, though issued in the King's name, ^ 
was really the proclamation above quoted of Simon de Montfort, who at that time was \ 
holding the King as his prisoner ; and he on the same occasion, from his seat of Kenil- | 
worth Castle, ordained what was practically the commencement of the House of L 
Commons (though it was not a separate House till the reign of Edward the Second, r 
and it has been remarked that probably the commoners came less as legislators than | 
as petitioners to plead what the Peers might enact) by directing the election, " along with ! | 
one hundred of the dignified clergy, of two knights for each shire, two citizens for each \ 
city, and two burgesses for each borough."* The writs in respect of the nobility appear # 
to have been issued but partially, the King himself summoning the Greater Barons, | 
and leaving the others to the Sheriff. The still existing Baronies then named are those 
of De Ros, Le Despencer (Falmouth viscounty), Hastings, and Segrave (renewed below), 
whilst in the line of Oanaoys (q. v.) the first Baron by writ was summoned twelve daysearlier | \\ 
than any of these ; but the validity of them all as to date has been contested, as noted in j 
the Directory under Baron Mowbray. Following this we read of writs of summons p t 
in the nth year of Edward the First (1283), constituting a small number of Barons, fa 
among whom were those of Mowbray and Segrave (titles since united in one noble- ! T ] 
man) ; whilst in the 22nd of the same King there was published a decree commanding | 
some sixty persons " to attend the King wherever he might be, to advise on the affairs, 
of his kingdom," though whether this summons constituted its recipients Peers of l 
Parliament is by no means clear. In the year that followed, however (June 24, 1295), an 
unmistakable writ of this character appeared, and Baron Berkeley was one of its recipients. |, 
The writ when followed by a single sitting in the Lords sufficed to establish the barony | 
(Blackstonc states that some had supposed two sittings to be necessary, but Nicolas ^ 
shows this to be an error), which then regularly passed to the lineal heirs both male and 
female. These writs are of the class termed Brcvia clausa, from being " closed up " with j 
yellow wax sealed with the Great Seal of England. It is under this arrangement that we 
are occasionally brought into presence of the phenomenon of abeyance, which, as already 
stated under " General Remarks," consists in the co-heirship of more than one daughter 
or daughter's descendant. In the case of females, primogeniture is disregarded in the 
succession of the English nobility (though not in that of the Royal Family, nor yet with 
Peers of Scotland; with those of Ireland there is practically no such thing as female 
succession not even with the one or two Irish baronies by writ; but see under , 

* Mr. Walford quotes Sir Edward Coke to the offoct that he had seen a record of the date 1130 (30th year of Henry 
the Fjrst) giving the degrees and seats of the Lords and Commons of that year as constituting one united body. 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 


" Waterford ") ; and thus when there exists no male heir, but there exist more than one 
female, both or all of these latter are equally entitled to the heirship, and not even the 
birth of a grandson {i.e. a son of J one of these) will relieve the difficulty so long as the 
original plurality continues, nor after that original plurality has ceased can either son 
or daughter succeed if any later plurality remains (even of sons only). Thus the abeyance 
may be prolonged, and it has thus actually lasted through centuries ; but there is a 
prerogative of the Crown which enables it to cut the knot by forthwith conferring 
the dignity on any one of the co-heirs, or on any other person who is heir to one of the 
first co-heirs, or heir through a brother or sister of some earlier heir — a female of a 
nearer generation to that of the last Peer taking preference of a male more remote, but 
males of the same degree being preferred to females. The succession may thus pass 
to a cousin, uncle, or aunt, though it cannot, unless open to " heirs general," go outside 
of the descendants of the Baron first created. The process followed by the Sovereign in 
calling the barony out of abeyance is by letters-patent in the case either of a female or 
of a person already holding a higher rank in the Peerage; in that of a male holding 
no such higher rank it reverts to a writ of summons. But except in this instance 
! and in that of summoning the eldest son of a Peer in his father's barony during that 
! father's lifetime, there have ceased from 1605 to be any new creations of "Barons by 
Writ ; " many of the older ones of course remain on the Roll of the Lords, for, 
generally speaking, it is only under these titles that the phenomenon of abeyance can 

Lastly, then, we come to the Barons by Patent. Though a patent is now the only form 
by which new baronies or any other peerages originate, it is anything but a modern 
■ innovation, for Baron Beauchamp of Kidderminster was thus dignified by Richard the 
Second in 1387. From this date for a long period the processes of writ and patent were 
' followed indifferently ; but the former has now wholly died out, and the newly created 
Baron receives his honours by means of a document stamped with the Great Seal, 
clearly prescribing the terms of succession — generally limited to his own heirs male. Up 
to the thirteenth year of James the First the creation by letters-patent was accompanied 
1 by an investiture at the hands of the King, who solemnly arrayed the new Peer in a 
scarlet robe with a hood furred with miniver ; but in that year it was decided that the 
patent itself was sufficient, not even the " sitting " being required as under baronies by 
writ. It need hardly be added that the dignity of the one class is in no way inferior to 
that of the other, and that the Barons in the Peerage take precedence among each other 
by the date of their creation alone. In all there are now 346 Barons (counting 
Baronesses) of England, Great Britain, or the United Kingdom, with 65 Irish, but only 
26 Scottish. The premier English barony as decided by the Roll is that of De Ros 
dating from 1283. In Scotland, where the term "Lord" long took partially the 
place of "Baron," we find the Duke of Sutherland holding the barony or lordship of 
Strathnaver (1228), whilst Baron Forbes (about 1442) stands first upon the Roll. But 
the oldest barony of all is in the Irish Peerage, where (disregarding that of 
Howth and others which are by tenure only) that of Kingsale stands first upon the 
Roll, though not awarded till 1223 (Sir John de Courcy, the famous English 
champion who obtained the notable hat privilege, having received no title of nobility 
whatever). A Baron is conventionally called " Lord." 

In the Scottish Peerage we notice the extensive use of the term "Lord" instead of 
P Baron" in the official titles. On this see further under "Scottish and Irish Peers " 
(page 20). On Life Baronies see "Life Peers " under " House of Lords." 

A Baron's insignia comprise the coronet — which from the time of Charles the Second 
has been denoted by six silver balls — and the mantle with two bars of black fur. The 
Baroness wears a similar coronet, and her coronation robe has the cape marked by two 
bars of ermine ; the miniver edging is two inches broad, and the train one yard long. 

A Baron's eldest son used once to have the rank of the now extinct order of Knights 
Bannerets. As it is we can only note that he comes after the younger sons of Earls, but 
before those of Viscounts, whilst his younger brothers succeed those latter sons though 
they precede all sons of Life Peers and all Baronets. As with Viscounts, all sons and 
daughters without distinction take the designation "Honourable." 

Note on Coeonets and Robes. — There may be a convenience in our here appending 
in immediate sequence the scale of variations observed in the form of the two leading 
insignia. The crowns of Royalty are richly jewelled, but those of the nobility must be 
chased only. All alike have the cap of velvet, lined with white silk and turned up with 

14 Introduction. 

Spotted ermine (page 8, note). The following are the distinctions among crowns and 
Coronets (those of Peeresses being small and fixed to the top of the head with pins) : 

Sovereign— x crosses-pattee and 4 fleurs-de-lis, with 2 arches i 
Prince of Wales— the same with only 1 arch. 
Princes of " Blood Royal "^the saind with no arch: 

Princesses of ditto— 2 crosses-pattee, 2 strawberry-leaves, and 4 fleurs-de-lis. 
Princes and Princesses of " the Blood, "^—4 crosses-pattee and 4 stra wberry -leaves 1 
Dukes— 8 strawberry-leaves. 

Marquesses— 4 strawberry-leaves and 4 t£ pearls " (silver balls) slightly mounted. 
Earls— -8 pearls mounted on high golden rays with leaves alternating, 
Viscounts— 16 pearls, not mounted. 
Barons— 6 pearls, not mounted. 

Of the mantles of the Peerage (as to which see "Insignia' 5 under "Dukes") the 
differences consist in the number of bars or guards of ermine upon those worn on state 
occasions in Parliament, and the corresponding number of rows of ermine-spots upon 
the Coronation robes — Dukes having four rows, Marquesses three and a half (see above 
in loc. ), Earls three, Viscounts two and a half, and Barons two. The coronation mantles 
of Peeresses vary thus : 

Duchesses ...—5 inches miniver border, 4 bars ermine, 2 yards train. 
Marchionesses— 4 „ „ „ 3$ „ ,, if „ „ 

Countesses ...—3 „ „ „ 3 ., „ il „ ,, 

Viscountesses —2I „ „ ,, 2* ,, „ i\ ,, „ 

Baronesses ...—2 „ „ ,, 2 „ „ 1 yard ,, 

Archbishops. — The general character of this division of our Introduction seems to 
render it advisable to consider the Spiritual Peers together at the close of our remarks 
on the Lords Temporal, though in point of precedence Archbishops stand superior even 
to Dukes. The Archbishop of Canterbury has twenty-seven Bishoprics in his Province 
(including his own see) against ten in that of York ; he thus takes a position of decided 
superiority, being placed above the Lord Chancellor, whilst his colleague follows after 
that high official, their respective appellations being also distinguished as "Primate of 
All England" and "Primate of England," whilst the one styles himself "By Divine 
Providence " and the other "By Divine Permission," as do the Bishops. To the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury, who is thus the highest personage in England after the Royal 
Family, the duty pertains of crowning a new sovereign, and it has been decreed that 
" wheresoever the Court may be, the King and Queen are his domestic parishioners" 
(the Bishop of London, however, crowned Henry the First, Edward the Second, Queen 
Mary, and William the Third) ; the Bishop of London is his Provincial Dean, the 
Bishop of Lincoln his Chancellor, and the Bishop of Rochester his Chaplain. Previous 
to the Reformation this Archbishop held great secular power, especially when he was 
also Lord Chancellor. The Archbishop of York crowns the Queen-Consort, and is consti- 
tuted her perpetual chaplain. This Archbishopric is more ancient than that of Canter- 
bury, having been originally founded in 180 A. D. on the first introduction of Christianity 
into Britain, and then restored by Gregory the Great in 632 ; the southern See dating 
from 597 under Augustine. William the Conqueror, however, gave the pre-eminence 
to Canterbury, owing to a suggestion from Archbishop Lanfranc that if the northern 
prelates were entrusted with the function of coronation they might bestow the crown 
upon some Scot or Dane! Both are Metropolitans and are addressed as "Your 
Grace" and "The Most Reverend." In respect of their mitres, most 'Peerages' state 
that they do not differ from those of Bishops, but the ' Encyclopaedia Britannica ' 
asserts that they rise out (if ducal coronets, though adding that the decoration is 
" without authority : " see at close of "Bishops." 

Bishops. — There are at present thirty-five diocesan Bishops in the English Church 
in addition to the two Archbishops, who act as Bishops in their own dioceses. There 
are also numerous Suffragan and Assistant Bishops, but these, as such, do not form a 
part of the Peerage. The twenty-seven sees or dioceses in the Province of Canter- 
bury are : 

Bangor, Bath and Wells, Birmingham, Bristol, Canterbury, Chichester, Ely, 
Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Lichfield, Lincoln, Llandaff, London, Norwich, 
Oxford, Peterborough, Rochester, St. Albans, St. Asaph, St. David's, Salis- 
bury, Southwark, Southwell, Truro, Winchester, Worcester. 
The ten of York Province are : 

Carlisle, Chester, Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Ripon, Sodor and 
Man, Wakefield, York. 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 15 

Of these, Birmingham, St. Albans, Southwark, Southwell^ and Truro in the former 
list, and PJpon, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, and Wakefield in the latter, are 
of recent institution, the original total having been twenty^four, in addition to the 
see of Sodor and Man, the occupant of which has still an honorary seat in the House 
of Lords, without a vote or liberty to join in the debates, having his own legislative 
position in the Manx House of Keys. When an increase upon the original twenty-four 
was commenced, it was enacted that new appointees should not sit in the House of 
Lords until vacancies arose among their seniors, the new prelate chosen to fill the vacancy 
being placed in turn at the foot of the junior list, so that the former number of seats in 
the House should never be exceeded.* Thus the newly-created sees rank on f ull equality 
with the old, and a rotation is maintained among their occupants which, except as to the 
statement in the next sentence, follows the strict law of seniority alone. But a special 
feature consists in the continuous seniority of the three Bishops of London, Durham, 
and Winchester, who are thus independent of the rotation prevailing among the others. 
In fact, we come to have four classes or series among the thirty-five Bishops : 
I . 1. London, Durham, and Winchester — invariably Peers of Parliament. 

2. The twenty-one seniors of the remainder— Peers through seniority. 

3. Ten juniors — awaiting seniority for peerage. 

4. The Bishop of Sodor and Man — incapable of a full peerage. 

The list of Bishops in the House of Lords which is given in Whitaker's Almanack 
has appended to it a second list exhibiting the order of creation of the prelates "Without 
Present Seats," thus specifying that in which they stand for succession. 

Bishops rank in the Peerage between Viscounts and Barons, but the three in the first 
of our series take precedence of all the rest, in the order — London, Durham, Winchester. 
The position of the order, next after that of Viscounts, was assigned them in the reign of 
Henry the Eighth, so that the instruction at the coronation of Charles the Second that 
they should " precede all the lay Lords " may be viewed as a mere temporary solace for 
their entire exclusion from Parliament under the Commonwealth. 

This, section of our work obtained, for its issue in the year 1900, the privilege of high 
ecclesiastical supervision, having been submitted to the eye of two Bishops of the 
English Church and of a Theological Professor of King's College, London, since elevated 
to the bishopric of Gibraltar. One of the three confined himself to remarking on the 
"diversity between important persons;" the second pronounced that "Bishops are 
Peers of the Realm," and that "all Bishops are Lords Bishops;" whilst the third 
favoured us with the following valuable paper : 

;-: " Before the Norman Conquest the Bishops were always summoned to give counsel 
to the King in the Witan, together with the Ealdormen and other chief persons of the 
kingdom. After the Conquest they occupied the same place in the Great Council of 
the Realm, like the judges and councillors. And although, as the Great Council 
passed by almost insensible gradations into the House of Lords, these latter gradually 
ceased to sit, the Bishops continued to do so, so that, as it has been said with strict 
accuracy, they have formed the most permanent element of the House of Lords. Their 
position, however, underwent a gradual modification. William the Conqueror had con- 
verted their lands into baronies, and thus required from them attendance at court and 
military service. Consequently, as by degrees all the greater landowners were 
summoned to Parliament by virtue of their baronial tenure, the Bishops came to be 
summoned in like manner as barones, still, however, retaining much of their earlier 
character as sapientes or 'Spiritual Lords of Parliament.' Both characters have been 
kept in view. As regards the former, we read that so late as 1722 the then Bishop of 
Durham, Dr. Talbot, was disposed to keep up some trace of the past — in respect both 
of his barony and of his personal status as Earl Palatine of the County of Durham and 
Prince Bishop— by making his appearance at a review ' in a lay habit of purple, with 
jack boots and his hat cocked, and a black wig tied behind him like a military officer.' 
On the other hand, although the Bishops have now ceased to hold their ancient 
baronies (the lands which formerly belonged to their sees being now vested in the 
Ecclesiastical Commissioners), they, or rather some of them, still sit in the House of 
Peers, and hold their rank as Spiritual Lords of Parliament. 

"Upon the union of Great Britain and Ireland in 1800 it was provided that the Irish 
Bishops, who had previously sat in the Irish House of Lords, should be represented in 

* But a Bishop who has once attained the seniority will not forfeit his seat in the Lords though he accepts 
translation to another see that has become vacant. This was exemplified in 1895 on the Bishop of Newcastle 
becoming Bishop of Chichester, and again in 1903 upon another Bishop of Newcastle changing to St. Albans ; yet 
again in 1905 on the Bishop of Worcester going to Birmingham and the Bishop of Rochester to Southwark : the See 
vacated goes in these cases to the foot of the list. 



'the House of Lords of the Parliament of the United Kingdom' by four of theif 
number chosen 'by rotation of sessions. 5 Of the four Archbiahops one aat in each 
session, and of the eighteen Bishops three ; in each case according to a defined order. 
The subsequent union of Bishoprics and abolition of [two] Archbishoprics brought about 
further changes 5 and on the disestablishment of the Irish Church in 1869, the Irish 
Bishops were excluded from the House of Lords altogether. In other respects their 
precedency is now shared by the lloman Catholic hierarchy in Ireland. 

' ' The question whether the Bishops who have seats in Parliament are Peers of the 
Realm has received diverse answers. There is no doubt whatever that when the term 
' Peer ' began to be used, the Bishops were recognised as Peers of the Realm in the 
fullest sense. But in practice they did not exercise certain of the functions of the 
Peerage. The provisions of the Canon Law did not suffer them to be present when 
j udgments of life and limb were being given ; and they usually claimed to be themselves 
exempt from secular jurisdiction on the same grounds. _ These were ecclesiastical 
provisions, and in no sense constitutional disabilities ; but in effect, the non-use of the 
privileges of Peerage gradually led to the idea that the Bishops were not Peers of the 
Realm at all. Signs of this are to be found as early as the reign of Henry the Eighth ; 
and in 1692 the representatives of the Lords in conference with the Commons are said 
to have declared that ' they looked upon the Bishops to be Lords in Parliament, but 
not Peers of Parliament.' Nevertheless the rights of Peerage which the Bishops once 
possessed have never been withdrawn from them, for an obiter dictum of this kind has 
clearly no legal or constitutional force. 

"A further question remains as to whether every Bishop is entitled to be addressed as 
' Lord Bishop, ' or only such as hold diocesan sees. Now, of course, it may well be that, 
in an age which is accustomed to consider every title as the direct outcome of a grant 
from the civil power, many Bishops do not care to claim such a title for themselves. 
But there can be no question that, historically, every Bishop was addressed as ' Lord 
Bishop,' and this not by virtue of any special grant — still less on account of his place in 
Parliament — but simply by virtue of his episcopal character, and from the universal 
respect for his office, which only gradually took shape in a formal title. Of this, as 
a matter of historical fact, there can be no doubt. Whether, however, it is desirable 
that, as a matter of etiquette, it should be' given to all Bishops at the present day, is 
another question." 

During the year which followed the first publication of the above we made 
numerous enquiries in reference to this "other question." The answers confirmed 
to us the fact that there does indeed exist "diversity," but the balance of opinion 
and practice came out clear beyond mistake. Whilst with some classes of the episcopal 
order the claim to the term "Lord" is clear, with the others we find a gradual shading 
down, until the sense of doubt took refuge in a decision by courtesy. As far as the matter 
of right is concerned, the title "Lord Bishop" belongs not only to English diocesan 
prelates, but to those also in our own Colonies, since such of these latter as possess 
patents have it therein expressly conveyed ; and even as to the English Bishops 
Suffragan, the plea is advanced that when a small number of these were created in the 
16th century they were addressed precisely as Bishops in general. This, however, is 
an item rather of custom than of right ; but it is from the basis of custom that, except 
as to the above first two orders, our rule will have after all to be deduced. There were 
English Bishops before the time of the Conquest, and the term "Dominus Episcopus " 
was applied to them before they came to be constituted Barons ; we must therefore 
resolutely discard the idea that their secular status was the origin of this style of their 
address. But now, when the degrees of the Episcopate are so greatly multiplied, 
we find that this form has passed down, until, in the probably universal usage 
of High Churchmen and the very extensive usage of others also, all Bishops of 
the Anglican Church still in office have come to be styled " Lords Bishops : " the 
Suffragans are so styled as above ; the Irish Bishops, though they stand precisely on a | 
level with their Roman Catholic brethren ; the Scottish Bishops, though actually dis- 
senters from the Established Church of their country ; and even the Missionary Bishops, 
though one of this order has expressly answered bur enquiry with, "No, this style is 
happily not customary." But, weighty and honourable as is this disclaimer, it would be 
unsafe to regard it as a unanimous utterance, so that it would be wiser to insert the word 
"Lord" where objection has not been expressed than to run the risk of offending by 
its omission : one clerical correspondent even informs us that he used repeatedly to 
address "The Lord Bishop of Haiti" (an American Missionary or "Foreign" Bishop) 
without being reproved. Again, as to the American Bishops proper, the old form of j 

The Peerage and its Degrees. 


"Eight Reverend Sir " is beginning to be dropped for the English style. A retired 
Bishop constitutes a partial exception, the word "Lord" attaching to the see and not 
to the person ; he must be Lord Bishop of somewhere, or he sinks to the style of "The 
Eight Reverend Bishop X.," though still personally addressed as "My Lord. " The 
position of an Assistant Bishop is similar, since he must not be described as "Assistant 
Bishop of A.," but "Bishop Assistant to the Bishop of A. ;" still his personal address 
is "My Lord." The style of a Coadjutor is "The Lord Bishop Coadjutor of A." 
A Bishop's Commissary is simply the agent of a Colonial or other prelate. 

But on the question of the higher Bishops being Peers of the Realm, our former opinion is 
not shaken but strengthened. Whatever may have been their position in early history, 
they are clearly now without a single one of the regular accessories of such peerage, their 
titles not being hereditary and their wives and children having neither title nor pre- 
cedence. In the recent trial of Earl Russell the incompleteness of their peerage was 

Erominently brought out, and how so high an authority as the late Bishop Stubbs (for 
t e it was) could have laid it down to us that they were Peers of the Realm is something 
incomprehensible. They sit in the House of Lords by virtue of thGir office alone, and 
that by a mechanical rotation peculiar to themselves, usually not gaining their seats 
till after some years of episcopal service, whilst if infirmity compels^ them to resign 
their posts they become (except as to the above courtesy-style of " My .Lord "j as purely 
commoners as any of ourselves. If in some past instances we find them called "Peers 
of the Realm " we must regard the expression as used in the loose sense in which it 
might be applied to all Peers whatsoever. This statement must cover even the remark 
attributed to the late Bp. Creighton that he was the holder of a " barony : " the Standing 
Orders of the House of Lords most expressly lay it down that "Bishops are not 

Bishops Suffragan are deputy Bishops, each directing some subdivision of a diocese 
or yielding an unlocalised assistance therein ; they are invariably distinguished by some 
topographical title, which, however, may itself vary with different individuals : thus 
"Nottingham," "Penrith," &c, have disappeared, whilst new titles crop up from year 
to year. The original Act (of Henry the Eighth) designated twenty-six towns from 
which the titles of appointed Suffragans might be selected : hence such anomalies as 
" Bedford " and " Marlborough " recently in the diocese of London ; but a new Act has 
widened the scope. * A retired Suffragan whose successor has chosen a new designation has 
been allowed to retain the titular honours of the old, thus actually remaining a " Lord 
Bishop." A further amending Act was passed in 1898 obviating the technical difficulty 
which required a Suffragan to be . consecrated "upon appointment," thus rendering it 
impossible to appoint one who had been consecrated already (see "Dover"). The 
Suffragan Bishoprics in the various dioceses as at present constituted are as follows : 

Canterbury — Dover, Croydon. 
Carlisle — Barrow-in-Furness. 
Durham — Jarrow (or Yarrow). 
Exeter — Crediton. 
Lincoln — Grantham. 

London— Stepney, Islington, Kensington. 
Manchester — Burnley . 
Norwich— Thetford, Ipswich. 
Oxford— T ' ' 

Peterborough — Leicester. 
Eipon — Richmond, Knaresborough. 
St. Albans— Colchester, Barking. 
St. David's— Swansea. 

Southwark— Kingston-on-Thames, "Woolwich. 
Southwell — Derby. 
Truro- St. Germans. 

Winchestei — Guildford, Southampton, Dorking. 
York— Beverley, Hull, Sheffield. 

There is thus no Suffragan in Bangor, Bristol, Chester, Chichester, Ely, Lichfield, 
Llandaff, Newcastle, Rochester (from 1905), St. Asaph, Salisbury, _ Sodor and Man, 
Wakefield, or Worcester ; whilst in lieu of a Suffragan there is a Bishop Assistant in 
Bath and Wells, Birmingham, Gloucester, Hereford, and Liverpool. 

Coadjutor Bishops are officially appointed, often with an expressed right of succession. 
Missionary Bishops (whose dioceses must be given to make _ them "Lords Bishops") 
are Bishops appointed from England but located in countries which are not British 
Colonies. Assistant Bishops, like Bishops' Commissaries, hold their offices by personal 
arrangement with their superiors. We have made it a special object to supply par- 
ticulars as to the Colonial, Missionary, and Retired prelates, such not being readily 
obtainable elsewhere. 

* There were but two or three Suffragan sees actually constituted out of this 26, and upon their holder 
dying out no successors were appointed, so that from 1597 to 1870 the title had no distinctive existence in the 
English Protestant Church. Still, in this Church as in that of Rome, all Bishops not Metropolitans are sometimes 
called Suffragans, and from this circumstance a former correspondent of ' Crockford ' was led to pronounce an 
essential difference between Suffragan Bishops and Bishops Suffragan. We have followed his harmless caution, 
but successive Gazette announcements have convinced us that it is of no practical moment. 


1 8 Introduction. 

A Bishop's mitre is a high cleft cap, generally of linen stiffened with embroidery and 
jewels (that of the Bishop of London is of ivory), encircled at the base with a jewelled 
golden fillet, and having two fringed pendants hanging below from within. That of the 
Bishop of Durham (as a vestige of the above ancient Count Palatinate) takes a ducal 
coronet in place of the fillet, and has its two divisions edged with beads and finished 
with two "orbs." If the Archbishops adopt this style of one of their own subordinates, 
it will surely be generally desired that usage should ere this have supplied them with 
the " authority " said to be lacking. The crosier, the symbol of a shepherd and terminating 
in a crook, is still borne upon occasions by diocesan Bishops ; a cross (quite distinct from 
a crosier) is sometimes also carried before an Archbishop. 

Classification of the Peerage. — Even neglecting the above degrees of Dukes, 
Marquesses, Earls, &c, we find our subject so complicated that we have to arrange it 
under the following ramifications (for particulars see the two following divisions) : 

I. The House of Lords. 

I. Peers created. 

(1) Hereditary Peers. 

(2) Life Peers (Law Lords). 

(3) Official Peers (Lords Spiritual). 

2 Peers elected 

(1) For Life (Irish Representative Peers). 

(2) For one Parliament (Scottish ditto). 

II. The Peerage outside of the House. 

1. Peers of Full Bank. 

(1) Scottish Peers \ Many of these sit in the House of Lords either under Imperial titles or 

(2) Irish Peers J as Representatives. 

2. Peeresses in Own Right. 

(1) Imperial Peeresses (male heirs going to House of Lords on succession). 

(2) Scottish Peeresses (Irish are barely possible). 

3. Peers' Issue with Courtesy-Titles. 

(1) Eldest sons of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls (with Scottish " Masters "). 

(2) Eldest sons of Dukes' and Marquesses' eldest sons. 

(3) Younger sons of Dukes and Marquesses. 

(4) Younger sons of Earls, with all sons of Viscounts and Barons. 

(5) Daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls. 

(6) Daughters of Viscounts and Barons. 

(7) Daughters and younger sons of eldest sons of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls. 
[4. Scottish Lords of Session.] 


Classification of Degrees. — The following table, specifying the present composition 
of the House itself, may conveniently stand thus closely after the one of a wider applica- 
tion above. It is, however, only a minuter form of classification of the nobles included 
under No. I. of that table. No minor can take his seat ; these are accordingly specified 
separately. Up to the date of our going to Press, the list stands as under : 

Princes of the Blood Royal

Forms of Admittance.— The House of Lords, the original Great Council and sole 
Parliament of England, has its early history sketched in the preceding division under the 
heading of " Barons," where also the more ancient credentials of Tenure and Summons 
are explained. At the present time, with certain special exceptions, it may be said 
that all peerages are conferred by letters-patent under the Great Seal of England. It 
may almost be added that no new peerages are now conferred which do not carry with 
them a right to sit in the House of Lords, for even if conferred upon a female the 
dignity is made to pass by preference to the heirs male descended from her ; but the 

The House of Lords. 


power of the Sovereign to create one new Peer of Ireland for every three peerages that 
have lapsed was shown in 1898 to have been not absolutely abandoned, as had been long 
and generally supposed. The exceptions to the adoption of letters-patent still occasionally 
exercised are the following two. The first is described above under "Barons" hear 
the end _ of 'the paragraph upon Baronies by Writ ; whilst the second consists in the 
summoning to the Lords, during his father's lifetime, of the heir to one of the higher 
peerages, who is thus called to proceed immediately to the functions of a legislator under 
the temporary title of a barony of his father. In this case it must be noted that no 
new hereditary peerage is thus created, for on the death of the father the son steps into 
the higher title, and his own separate peerage, as such, passes out of sight. Should the 

I son, however, die first and leave an heir of his own, that heir if of age will take the son's 
title and hold it on till the death of the elder Peer. It must also not be forgotten that 
though in general the process of Writ of Summons has gone out of use, there are numbers 
of the existing baronies which are held through the issue of such writs centuries ago, and 

! that it is in their case and theirs only that we are so frequently confronted with the 
phenomenon of "abeyance." Again, there is a lower form of the Writ of Summons 
: issued at the commencement of every new Parliament, by which every Peer who is 
already recognised (excepting the elected Representative Peers of Scotland, whose 
return is notified to the House by the Lord Clerk Register) receives as it were a circular 

I informing him of the re-assenibling of the House. 

I > The ceremonies of the admission of a new Peer may be thus described, and they apply 
j either to the creation, succession, or mere elevation of a member of the House. Garter 
I King of Arms (or " Garter" as he is briefly termed), or it may be some Herald in his 
j place, makes his entry bare-headed and attired in his tabard, holding the patent and 
\. writ of summons ; the new Peer himself follows, between two nobles of his own degree, 
I all three being robed ; the new accession makes his obeisance to the Lord Chancellor, 
j who enjoins that his credentials shall be read ; the oaths are next administered, the writ 

handed over for keeping by the Clerk of the House, and the new Peer conducted to his 
I seat, from which he forthwith rises again and returns less formally to the Lord 
I Chancellor to receive his congratulations. A new Bishop is similarly introduced by two 
E Spiritual Peers, but without the secularising company of a Herald. At every new 

Parliament the oaths must be taken afresh by each Peer before he can resume his seat, 
j It was noticed above that no minor can take his seat ; neither can any Peer who is 

bankrupt or insane. But the House has long grieved over its incapacity to exclude a 

Peer notorious for a disgraceful life. 

Arrangement and Peoceduee. — Two thrones are provided for the Sovereign and the 
Queen Consort, with seats to the right and left for the Prince anc. Princess of Wales. 
In front of the thrones is the woolsack, the seat of the Lord Chancellor when neither the 
j Sovereign is present nor the House in Committee. Three Peers constitute a quorum, 
and can proceed with the work of legislation so long as they are unanimous, but no 
division is now of force unless thirty are present. The House gives its votes, when 
these are formally required, by each member answering " Content " or "Not Content," 
! but the Commons' system of dividing in lobbies is also in vogue. In case of a division, 
! an equality of votes is a negative of the proposition, as there is no casting-vote, but the 
I Lord Chancellor himself participates in the vote of the House. This official, it need 
hardly be added, is by no means the regulator of the proceedings of the House as the 
Speaker is in the Commons ; instead of being elected by the vote of the House he is a 
member of the Ministry of the day, and he sits in the Sovereign's absence as an orna- 
mental figure-head, whose presence, or that of a deputy, is essential to the conduct of 
proceedings. He can take part in the debates in addition to recording his vote.* The 
Chairman of Committees aces as Deputy Speaker. The Peers, by a Standing Order in 1868, 
have dropped the right of voting by proxy, but members may enter upon the journals of 
the House (if within 48 hours) their individual protest against any measure which has 
received the sanction of the majority. The House still constitutes the ultimate Court 
of Appeal, those Peers who are or have been Judges being the acting members, though 
any other Peer could participate if he chose so to insist : consequently no Peer can con- 
tinue a K.C. Some further rules are stated in the Official Note on page 28. 

* The "Lord High Chancellor of England" finds his more exalted functions in his position as the first judicial 
officer of the Crown and the first lay person in the realm after the Royal Family. He is created by the mere 
delivery of the Great Seal into his custody. He is ex officio a Privy Councillor, he appoints all justices of the peace, 
is visitor of royal foundations, patron of the smaller Crown livings, and guardian of infants, idiots, and lunatics 
(through the Masters in Lunacy) ; he presides over the Court of Chancery, and has been assigned the title of " Keeper 
of the King's Conscience." Till the time of James the First the post did not carry with it an hereditary peerage, 
I but was at first always filled by ecclesiastics, of whom Cardinal Wolsey is the most eminent example. It was when 
Henry the Eighth had resolved to overthrow the Church that he transferred the appointment to Sir Thomas More.

20 Introduction. 

Hereditary Peers. — Our two tables have brought out the fact that there are Peers 
of Parliament who are not hereditary, just as there are hereditary Peers (Scottish and 
Irish) who are not Peers of Parliament. The second table, however, shows that the 
former class of exceptions are comparatively few. These are noticed in our next two 
paragraphs, whilst the third exhibits the yet further anomaly of a class of hereditary 
Peers within the House, but not succeeding by heredity thereto. 

Life Peers. — This class, once not infrequent, is now restricted to a very small 
number of Law Lords, at present five. The first recent creation occurred in 1856 in 
the case of Lord Wensleydale, when the Peers came to the decision that a Life 
Temporal Peer was not entitled to a seat in their House. An Act was accordingly 
passed giving power to the Sovereign to elevate two Judges of Appeal into Life Barons 
of Parliament, and in 1876 the number was enlarged so that it now admits all the 
Lords of Appeal in Ordinary, whether active or retired (the late Lord Chief Justice was 
also a Life Peer). There have up to the present been thirteen such appointments (in addic- 
tion to the preceding, who was afterwards made an hereditary Baron, as was the late 
Lord Morris), namely, Lords Blackburn, Bowen, FitzGerald, Gordon, Hannen, Morris, 
Watson, and Russell of Killowen, who are deceased, and Lords Atkinson, Davey, 
Macnaghten, Lindley (retired), and Robertson, who are still living. The wives of these 
Peers take the title of "Lady" with all the precedence of Baronesses; and the children 
of Life Peers now rank next after those of hereditary Barons and take the courtesy- 
title "Honourable." 

Official Peers. — These are the Lords Spiritual, already described under the 
preceding division. In point of fact they usually prove to be Life Peers, but only on 
condition of their retaining their posts till death. Should they resign they not only 
relinquish their seats, but suffer a change in their designations as stated under "Bishops." 
A further mark of the distinction between this class and the preceding is seen in the 
fact of their wives and children being wholly without titles, even the wife of an Archbishop 
being simply " Mrs." 

Peers Elected. — We may thus notice conjointly the Scottish * and Irish Representa- 
tive Peers, both of which are full Peers of their respective nations, and are elected by 
the entire adult Peerages of these as specially convened by the Sovereign (but see 
omissions under Irish Poll). Those of Ireland number 28, and are chosen for life : those 
of Scotland 16, who are elected or re-eleeted at every fresh Parliament. Elected Peers 
do not receive the Writ of Summons on the assembling of a new Parliament. 


Scottish and Irish Peers. — The Peerages of Scotland and Ireland, though con- 
taining the same degrees from Dukes to Barons, differ broadly from that of England in 
their not conferring membership of the House of Lords. Nevertheless, considerably the 
larger half of them do possess seats in that House, for, in addition to the elected repre- 
sentatives of the paragraph above, there are very many who, as fully enumerated upon ] 
page 36, possess Imperial hereditary titles in addition to their more ancient and native j 
ones — in fact, this is the case with nearly three-fifths of the Scottish Peers and 
nearly half of the Irish. The Duke of Hamilton is the Premier Peer of Scotland, and 
the Duke of Leinster of Ireland (for Premier Earl's, Barons, &c, see under those degrees, 
as per Index). 

The Scottish Peerage in its early beginnings comes to us under a shroud of mistiness. 
The first title with which we meet bears the Gaelic form of Mbrmhaor(usually printed ft 
Mormaer), that is Great Steward, and a succession of nobles known by this distinction 
were the predecessors of the Earls of Mar. As mentioned under that title, the first 
of these to adopt the style of "Earl" is presented to us in 11 14 as one of "the Seven 
Earls " connected with the foundation charter of the Abbey of Scone. The dignity at 
this date was distinctly a feudal one, its holders being equivalent to the Barons in 
England ; and in the Scottish Parliament, known as the Communitas, these must have jj 

* It may here be remarked upon this form once for all that there is an objection in Scotland to the word I 
"Scotch;" the people are "Scots," and their adjective is " Scots "or "Scottish." Their Education Department has, 
however, been formally christened by the Southern innovation, and other exceptions may turn up from time to 
time, such as " Scotch whisky," " Scotch snuff," "Scotch haggis," "Scotch thistle," " Scotch kale," "Scotch mist ;" 
whilst the mention of a " Scottish " terrier might hardly suggest a recognisable animal. Again, the Scotsman 
Boswell uses the form " Scotch" repeatedly in his 'Life of JolmSbn,' so that certainly no one can say that "the 
decree has been made absolute." 

The Outside Peerage. 


held their seats under the latter designation, as the assembly consisted of the three 
ranks of Prelates, Barons, and Burgesses. The title of Earl would thus appear to have 
been merged under this wider designation, just as we had it above (page 11) 
in the case of "Simon de Montfort with other Barons," for the Scottish nobility- 
was now nominally made up of the two ranks, perhaps not precisely so distinguished, of 
Major and Minor Barons. The latter subsided into what are now termed Lairds, whilst 
the former were eventually summoned to the Legislature. The term " Earl," however, 
from 1578, more regularly appeared in the charters assigning the lands, already designated 
earldoms (these lands being subject to division in the case of co-heirs, but the title going 
to the eldest inheritor only). But James the First had, about the year 1430, introduced 
the English title of "Lord of Parliament, " and thus in time the word "Baron," and 
still later that of "Earl," acquired significations distinct from those of feudalism ; and 
the Earls in this sense soon grew to be the more numerous body (now 45 against 26). 
So long as the earlier system had remained in force the great Scottish nobles judged of 
their precedence by virtue of their personal status alone, so that the introduction 
of- English usage, with its rule of precedence by priority of creation, led to serious 
disputes, and compelled the appointment in 1606 of a Commission known as the 
Decreet of Ranking. We have thus traced the origin of the orders of Barons and Earls. 
James the Third made his son the first Scottish Marquess, but the title (Ormond) very 
soon lapsed. Those of Hamilton and Huntly followed, the remainder dating from 
between the union of the Crowns and that of the Kingdoms. The only Scottish 
Viscounties hail from the same interval. King Robert the Third in 1398 made his son 
Duke of Rothesay, and his brother Duke of Albany. In Scotland, as elsewhere observed, 
when female succession is permitted it follows the rules of primogeniture, and there is 
thus no abeyance. 

In the Irish Peerage, as all the creations were made by English monarchs, there are 
no special features to comment upon having any similarity to the preceding. We note, 
however, the almost entire absence of female succession, and this in spite of the fact 
that there are Irish baronies by writ. The term barony is still extensively used for 
what in England is of the nature of a manor, but this circumstance has not interfered 
with the employment of the word " Baron " for a title of nobility. Irish Peers, as else- 
where stated, have the distinctive privilege of admission to the House of Commons for 
any constituency not in Ireland itself. 

Peeresses in Own Bight. — Peerages are occasionally granted immediately to ladies 
of distinction or the widows of distinguished men ; but f requently the instances falling 
under this heading are the result of regular inheritance in lines which, as we have noted 
under " Barons," are open to females in default of males. Thus it results that some of 
the Peeresses now upon the list have male heirs who will succeed them in the ensuing 
generation and take their seats by strict right in the House of Lords; while, on the other 
hand, several peerages now occupied by males will fall to the other sex, and thus for a 
; time take leave of that House. 

' Scottish Loeds of Session. — We have now stepped outside the Peerage altogether ; 
for the word "Lord" prefixed to the names of these Judges, or sometimes even to titles 
different from their names, is strictly an official honour, and may be compared to the 
term "Lord Justice" in England, for which until lately "Baron "and "Lord Chief 
Baron " were used. An Order in Council of February 1905 authorised the retention of 
the title for life, irrespective of retirement, and the style "Lady" is to be enjoyed by 
the wife, and to continue in widowhood though not after re-marriage ; but no distinction 
is conferred upon the children. " Lord" in this case takes the prefix " Hon." in place 
of the "Right Hon." of actual Lords. These Lords, fourteen in mimber, are included 
in our Directory, and a list of them will be found in Whitaker's Almanack. For the 
style of the two Presidents see the note under " Kingsburgh." 

Remarks on Foreign Titles held in the British Dominions. — We are continually 
meeting in the papers with some title which belongs, or affects t'o belong, to some 
foreign nobility, and which in many cases is thoroughly respectable, though we fear that 
in many others it is decidedly the reverse — in fact, either bought with cash or an 
imposture altogether. Some of the parties apparently come to this country for a brief 
flash in English society, or it may be* a crash among English tradesmen ; while others 
are settled residents with us, and not to be named in the same breath with these their 
would-be kindred. Of course we are not attempting to discriminate between individuals. 
We have given nearly all the names to be found in either ' Burke ' or ' Debrett,' 


together with two or three others whose credentials appeared to be satisfactory. There 
may be many sound ones besides, but such of these as adopt fixed abodes in this country 
are fairly sure to take steps for making their presence known, 

A good number of those whom we have felt warranted in including are residents in 
various parts of our own island ; but there is one French Peer in Canada (De Longueiiil), 
and quite a host of those holding Spanish, Genoese, or other foreign titles are to be 
found in our little Colony of Malta. Of these 'Debrett' supplies notices of an 
extensive series, and an official list obligingly sent us by Count Strickland enables us 
to add several to our own pages, including even those rather numerous ones who hold un- 
couth Arabic titles : one of these last, the Baroness Diar-il-Bniet, is the premier noble 
of Malta, and as such was deputed to represent the Peerage of the island at King 
Edward's coronation. As a rule, a foreign peerage acquires no rank or precedence 
in the British dominions, but some thirty of those held in Malta are practically " taken 
over " by our Government, though this does not, as we were incorrectly informed, 
impart to them equal ranks with those in the House of Lords. Among them- 
selves, however, they have the anomalous arrangement of treating the terms Marquess, 
Count, and Baron as titles only and marking no distinction in rank, the date of creation 
alone governing their precedence, and the form of address being "Most Noble" 
irrespectively to all. Besides Spain and Genoa, we find among the sources of these 
honours the Papacy, Austria, Naples, Sicily, Parma, Savoy, and the Grand Masters of 
Malta itself, these last supplying the only strictly Maltese peerages. Turning from that 
island we find perhaps the largest portion of our foreign titles bearing the designation 
of "the Holy Roman Empire," which the student of history knows to be the style 
assumed by the Emperors of Germany in days when the leading power of that country 
was Austria. Several of our own aristocracy can append to their other titles that of 
Prince or Count of this Holy Roman Empire, and it is an honour that may be depended 
upon as not having been obtained by dishonourable means. Similarly a writer in the 
Standard in October 1900 states that a "Spanish countship is as hard to come by as 
an English earldom, while Italy, since King Humbert ascended the throne, has become 
very conservative in the matter of ennobling foreigners." The same writer states that 
at least 120 British subjects hold foreign titles. We may briefly instance the French 
dukedoms of Aubigne, Melfort, and Chatelherault ; the Duke of Wellington's Spanish, 
Portuguese, and Belgian titles ; Nelson's Neapolitan dukedom of Bronte, Lord Reay's 
Dutch title, and the Earl of Clancarty's marquessate of Heusden ; again, there are the 
Austrian baronies of Rothschild, De Worms, and Fremantle, the Earl of Clarendon's 
Prussian barony of Villiers, the Earl of Dundonald's Brazilian marquessate of 
Maranham, the Portuguese viscounties of Monserrate and De Stern and earldom of 
Cape St. Vincent, the Italian dukedom of Gandolfi, and the Russian barony of 

Use of the Terms "Lord," "Lady," "Hon.," &c— The title "Lord" is in the 
first place the regular conventional designation of a Baron, and frequently in the 
older titles it is even found substituted in the patent or writ, as is especially noticeable 
in the Scottish Peerage. Secondly, it is used in common parlance as a general term for 
any nobleman, from a Baron to a Marquess. Thirdly, in courtesy-titles it is correctly 
used in the case of the eldest sons of such of the higher Peers as hold subordinate 
titles as Barons, and conventionally again when the subordinate title is higher than 
that of Baron. Fourthly, it is prefixed to a Christian name to designate a younger 
son of a Duke or Marquess. Fifthly, it is used, by right or by courtesy, to Bishops. 
Sixthly, it is applied, as a judicial title, to a Scottish Lord of Session. The title "Lady'' 
is borne by wives or sisters in all these cases except the fifth (the sixth is now included), 
by the daughters of Earls, and by the wives of Baronets, and, in practice, by those of 
Knights also. When the word "Lord, "or any other title of honour, is added to a Christian 
name, as "Alfred, Lord Tennyson," the title " Lord T." implies an actual Peer, and the 
"Alfred" shows which one of the line is intended (the form " Lord Alfred " could only 
be the courtesy-title of some younger son as above); and so we have "Edward, Earl

Nomenclature of Peers' Relatives. 

We have found it necessary to expand this last sentence, though previously we 
had felt almost ashamed to say even this much. But the extent of ignorance with 
which we have met, even amongst Writers whom we should have assumed to be well- 
informed on such a matter, is such that we are compelled to apologise for greater 
fulness to those with whom the laws of address have long been as their ABC. In 
the case of actual Peers, then, the forms "Alfred, Lord Tennyson" and "Edward, 
Earl of Derby" are precisely equivalent in definition respectively to " ist Baron 
T." and " 14th Earl of D." But though with foreign personages we may hear of 
"Duke Henry" or "Baron Otto," we can never have this inversion of the Christian 
name in either of the Peerages of our own islands. In fact, even in the use of 
courtesy-titles it can never occur with any style higher than that of " Lord," so that 
such forms as "Viscount James Cranborne" are simply outrageous monstrosities. 
The only exception comes in when this very variably applied term "Lord" is the 
courtesy-title of a younger son of some Duke or Marquess; then the addition of 
the Christian name is as imperative as in the other cases it is banned. Even 
here care must be taken not to confuse with these the courtesy-title of an eldest 
son, which, if " Lord," will usually be that of a barony included in his father's titles, 
whilst those of younger sons invariably terminate in the family surname : thus we 
have Lords Stanley, Balcarres, and Medway, who are heirs apparent to the earldoms 
of Derby, Crawford, and Cranbrook, and many similar titles will be found on 
glancing down the column of Eldest Sons of Earls in Whitaker's Almanack. In 
brief, when "Lord" is followed by a Christian name it exactly corresponds to 
"Honourable" in the case of other sons. With the word "Lady" the blunder is 
even more frequent ; but as the rules are fully given under the headings that follow, it 
should be sufficient in this place to point out that the forms "Lady Anne," " Lady J ane," 
&c, must never be used except for the daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, or Earls (who, 
as stated further on, usually retain these forms after marriage) ; but wives of Baronets and 
Knights bringing with them no title of their own must be simply " Lady Brown " or 
"Lady White," though if requiring distinction from other Ladies cf the surname they 
may prefix their own Christian names, or if two ladies of the name chanced to be at 
the same address the form "Lady (E.) Smith" can be adopted : these, however, are 
conventional resorts only, "for," says the late Lord Chamberlain (who kindly examined 
and approved this and two following sections), "if ten Lady Smiths were presented 
at Court they would each be ' Lady Smith ' simply ; " whilst the bold device of invent- 
ing a compound surname from a Christian name, such as "Lady Douglas Smith," 
amounts at once to making a " Lord Douglas Smith " (instead of "Sir Douglas") of 
the husband. 

The prefix "Hon." is given personally to most Peers' issue (see "Earls" &c), and 
officially to all present or past Maids of Honour, all Justices of the High Court during 
office (not Lords Justices, who are all made Privy Councillors, nor Lords of Appeal, 
who hold Life Peerages), to Lords of Session and their wives or widows ("Hon. Lord," 
" Hon. Lady "), the Lord Provost of Glasgow &c. (during office), and to members of Exe- 
cutive or Legislative Councils in the Colonies.* The Parliamentary phrase "Hon. 
Member" implies no personal or official title, and it is a mistake to prefix "Hon." 
to Gentlemen Ushers : " Never with men," says our authority. " Right Hon." is the 
title of a Privy Councillor and of any Peer lower than a Marquess ; Peeresses take the 
style of their husbands, and by courtesy either " Rt. Hon." or the commonly substituted 
" The " must be prefixed to the title or name of all Peers' issue who are higher than 
" Hon.,"f a courtesy-Marquess being "Most Hon.," and " Rt. Hon. "being preferable to 
"The " in the case of other eldest sons bearing titles of their fathers. " Pvt. Hon." is also 
given during term of office to all Lord Mayors, the Lord Advocate, and the Lord Pro- 
vost of Edinburgh (not other cities). "Hon. Lady" may denote either a lady pre- 

* This use of the title, having its rules to some extent complex, has occasionally been applied too freely. It per- 
tains for life to members of the Canadian Privy Council, or of the Executive Councils of Victoria, Tasmania, or the 
Cape, all of these memberships being life appointments ; also, during office, to Senators of Canada (with the 
Speakers of both Houses and those of the Provinces) and to members of any Executive or Legislative Council in 
a Colony possessing responsible government (by the King's permission the title may be retained by ex-members). 
Locally the " Hon." is assumed by members of these same Councils in Crown Colonies also, and by the Speaker of 
a Legislative Assembly where such second Chamber exists (the Crown Colonies, some 45 in number, comprise all 
the British dominions beyond seas not included in India, Canada, Australasia, or the Cape). The designation of a 
Judge in a Colonial Supreme Court is less absolutely denned : in some Colonies it is " The Honourable Mr. 
Justice A.," in others merely " His Honour Judge B." 

t This statement having recently been challenged, we in 1904 re-applied to the Lord Chamberlain, and were 
assured in answer that "younger sons and daughters styled Lord or Lady, and eldest sons bearing special courtesy- 
titles, are entitled to the term Rt. Hon. or ihe substituted article," though this is simply " a matter of usage as is 
the courtesy- title itself." 



viously " Hon." who has married a " Sir, 5 ' or else any lady who has married an " Hon. 
Sir," provided that his " Hon." is the mark of a Peer's son and not of a mere office. 

The article " The " when prefixed to "Lord " or " Laciy ' is a conventional substitute j 
for "Rt. Hon,," and the combination "The Lady" must, therefore, nob be applied to 
the wife of a Baronet or Knight. Nevertheless "The Hon.," "The Hon. Lady," and 
"The Dowager Lady" (though only a Baronetass) are correct forms in addressing. 

Peers' Issue with Courtesy-Titles.— We first note that some of these are heirs • 
to peerages, while others are never likely to be such. In the case of eldest sons, j 
those of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls take as a general rule the second titles of their 
respective fathers, for nearly all the higher Peers possess at least two, and some of them 
quite a multiplicity. But no law exists in the matter, though each family has usually its 
established custom. With some of them two titles are adopted alternatelv, and in some 
instances again we find that when an eldest son has been removed by death, then his 
son if he leaves one— or in default of such his next brother — may either step into his H 
title or take some other if there are three or more (thus, the present Duke of West- 
minster, during heirdom, continued to be called "Viscount Belgrave," his title during 
the life of his father, Earl Grosvenor). But we find deviations more or less from any 
of the titles of the fathers, as when the word "Lord" or "Viscount" is prefixed 
to the family name (as is almost regularly done when the Peer bears no third title, 
and is, say, both Earl and Viscount by an identical designation, whilst in the cases 
of the Devon, Lindsey, and Temple earldoms it is the only possible course, as those 
peerages have no second title attached); or in such cases as "Viscount Trafalgar" 
instead of "Viscount Merton of Trafalgar "for the late son of Earl Nelson, or "Lord j 
Inverurie" instead of "Lord Keith of Inverurie" for the late son of the Earl of • 
Kintore. Courtesy-titles can be bestowed also upon a grandson who is the eldest son of I 
the heir, but never upon any collateral relative, even a brother (son of a previous Peer), j 
who may be a presumptive heir. Again, in the Scottish Peerage the eldest sons of : 
Viscovnts and Barons are usually known by the term "Master of " prefixed to the titles 1 
of their fathers — this term having formerly been something more than a term of , | 
courtesy, for its holders were entitled to sit and vote in the Scottish Parliament in | 
the absence of their fathers, and on some occasions even in their presence : at one j 
time, too, we read that this title was assigned to the next brother of a Lord. The 
younger sons of Dukes and Marquesses only are distinguished by the word "Lord" j 
before their Christian names ; whilst the younger sons of Earls and all sons of Vis- | 
counts and Barons (except as just noticed for the Scottish custom, and see under 1 
" Capell, Baron") are known as "The Honourable." Returning to grandsons, we 
observe that the eldest son of the eldest son of a Duke (Somerset excepted, though here 
either the Crown or the freedom allowed by conventionality would probably soon • 
meet the difficulty) is sure to hold some title of the grandfather ; and so with the 
grandson of a Marquess if the son's courtesy-title is "Earl," but not if it is j 
"Viscount" (just as with the sons of an actual Viscount), though in the Scottish 
Peerage the eldest son of even a Baron-by-courtesy (an Earl's grandson usually) 
may be called " Master 5 " and again the younger sons of an eldest son of a Duke are also 
designated in accordance with the style of their father : if he is called a Marquess they ij 
will prefix "Lord "to their names,* but if an Earl they can only be "Honourable." 
Similarly the younger sons of the eldest son of a Marquess (who will be styled 
either "Earl," "Viscount," or "Lord") can in any case be only " Honourables," as 
are all the sons of the eldest sons of Earls (for such eldest sons cannot possibly be 
st.yled higher than Viscounts, and the sons of a Viscount are all called Honourables) ; 
whilst the offspring of the younger sons of all Peers and of all sons of Viscounts and 
I^jarons are Esquires only. One more illustration : though the eldest son of a Duke may 
be ''Marquess," his eldest son "Earl," "Viscount," or "Lord," and his next son 
" Lord John," the younger sons of the Duke can never be higher than "Lord John," 
and the sons of any "Lord John" only Esquires. What may require to be particu- 
larly noticed is the difference between " Lord " of an eldest son and " Lord John " of 
a younger, the issue of the former being "Honourable," but not those of the latter. 
The daughters of Dukes, Marquesses, and Earls take the prefix "The Lady" before 

* It is singular enough to be worth noting that at the present time there is not a single instance in the entire 
Peerago of a Duke's younger grandson bearing the title of " Lord ;" either the son is an Earl by courtesy (in which 
event his younger sons are only " Honourable "), or if a Marquess he has no second son. The only recent instances 
are the present Marquess of Granby, who was Lord John Henry Manners while his elder brother was living; a 
deceased infant son of the Marquess of Hamilton (now 2nd Duke of Abercorn), styled Lord Claud Francis 
Hamilton ; and Lord .Alistair Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, son of the Marquess of Stafford, now Duke of Sutherland. 

Nomenclature of Peers' Relatives, 

their Christian names, whilst those of Viscounts and Barons -take---— Honourable " 
like the sons. It will be observed, as already commented upon, that in the case 
of Earls the daughters thus receive technically a higher distinction than the sons, 
being treated exactly as the daughters of Dukes and Marquesses, whilst the sons 
obtain only the title assigned to those of Viscounts and Barons ; but this partiality 
is only a part of that general anomaly noticed above, in virtue of which the 
daughter of every Peer ranks one degree higher than the younger sons— an Earl's 
daughter is "born in the degree of a Viscountess," whereas these sons are in 
that of Barons only. The distinction has the effect of rendering the term "Lord" 
(before a Christian name) very much less frequent than that of "Lady," and 
in consequence of greater apparent honour; whilst the term "Lady," as we have 
already remarked, is of extremely wide application — being borne, though without the 
prefix "The," by even the wife of a Knight Bachelor — and when the daughter of a 
Baron marries- a Baronet or Knight and thus becomes "The Honourable Lady," 
we see that the word "Honourable," which marks her lineage, is really of the 
higher value of the two. Granddaughters, the offspring of the eldest son of a Duke 
or Marquess, are styled "The Lady " if their father's title is either "Marquess" or 
" Earl," but if it is only " Viscount," then they, with all offspring of the eldest son of 
an Earl, are "Honourable" only. No grandchildren of Viscounts or Barons bear any 
title as such. It must again be noted that a courtesy-title, either of male or female, 
does not always determine its holder's precedence, for a Duke's son, for instance, will 
rank as equal with a Marquess though termed only " Lord," and the Duke's eldest son's 
eldest son will be level with an Earl even if termed only "Honourable :" what is said of 
the wife's rank at the end of the notes upon the next page is a favour to certain married 
ladies. As to the occasional instances in which the term " Lord " or even a higher title 
is found applied to an heir of a Viscount or Baron, there are various ready explanations : 
first, and most frequently, the title belongs to some higher rank held by the father 
under another Peerage (say Scottish or Irish) ; secondly, the mother of the heir may 
be a Peeress in her own right, and the heir's title may be obtained upon her side in- 
stead of the father's ; thirdly, a Scottish Lord of Session may be the heir. The Courtesy- 
Titles in present use, together with all other subsidiary titles of Peers which we 
believe to be extant, will be found in their respective alphabetical positions in 
the following Directory. Most of the higher Peers hold three or four of these titles ; 
and some of those of Scotland, besides the Marquess of Lansdowne, have as many 
as ten and upwards, the Duke of Atholl even exceeding twenty. 

On the Marriage of Peeresses &c— The most essential rules may be thus briefly 
specified : 

The wife of a Peer takes the regular feminine of his own title, wholly irrespective of 
what she was before (but see below as to some rare exceptions made by etiquette) ; a 
Baroness being styled " The Bight Hon. Lady." 

The wife of a Peer's eldest son bearing one of his father's titles will take the feminine 
form also unless her previous rank was higher than his ; but if, though eldest and 
heir, he is simply "Hon.," she, if herself not higher, becomes "the Hon. Mrs." 
with no Christian name. 

The wife of a Baronet or Knight is styled " Lady " unless she is the daughter of a Peer, 
when she may be "The Lady Anne," " The Hon. Lady," &c. (see next page). 

We have now to amplify these rules. A Peeress in her own Right retains her title after 
marriage, and if her husband's rank is the superior she is designated by the two titles 
jointly, the inferior one last : her hereditary claim still holds good in spite of any 
marriage whether higher or lower. No rank held by a woman can confer any title or 
even precedence upon her husband ; but the rank of a Peeress in her own right is 
inherited by her eldest son (or perhaps daughter), to whomsoever she may have been 
married. With a Peer's widow who re-marries the case is in appearance the same as to 
retention of a former superior title ; but it is so by etiquette only, for even if she 
is a Duchess married to a Baron it will be as a Baroness only that she will be summoned 
to any royal function,* although conventionally she will be known by whichever title 
is the higher, and if both are the same in degree, that of her husband will naturally

be used, But in strictness, whether her second marriage is to a Peer, to a Lord 
by Courtesy, or to a commoner, she forfeits whatever title she had acquired by 
her former marriage and comes to her second husband in precisely the same rank 
in which she came to her first (which, if she is also a Peer's daughter, may be higher 
than that derived from her late Peer-husband), though custom usually gratifies her by 
continuing the recent honour if desired. If the widow of a Lord by courtesy, the same 
remarks will apply to her re-marriage to any person but an actual Peer. Similarly any 
daughter _ of a Peer, upon marrying an actual Peer, takes the rank of her husband, 
whether it exalts or lowers her ; if she marries a Lord holding the special courtesy-title 
of an eldest son, she may either take the feminine of that title and thus take its rank 
(governed by that inherited from the father and not by the accident of its own style as 
Earl, Viscount, &c), or she may retain her own rank if the higher by prefixing her 
Christian name to her husband's courtesy -title (on the diverse practice see "Ingestre," 
under "Shrewsbury") ;* lastly, if she marries any person other than a Peer or an 
eldest son holding a distinctive courtesy-title, she then at the least retains her own 
rank, as denoted by "The Lady Alice" or "The Hon. Mrs. John," and will rise 
with him if previously beneath him, so that if lately "Hon." only she may become 
"The Lady " (a " Lady " marrying a Knight or Baronet continues " The Lady Alice " 
with only change of surname, whilst an "Hon." becomes "Hon. Lady" without 
Christian name, the " Hon." marking her descent and the " Lady " her married status, 
which in the other case has to be absorbed). But a married lady will never retain such a 
style as "the Hon. Alice; "and though, as stated under our "rules," the "John" will be 
omitted if he is the eldest living son of a living Peer, it must not be omitted, nor "Alice" 
substituted, on the ground of his being a commoner himself : we give this on the direct 
authority of the late Lord Chamberlain. The variations here, however, require scrupulous 
care, complicated by the anomalous fact that any Peer's daughter ranks one degree higher 
than either of the same Peer's younger sons (though his heir is her equal) : the daughter 
of a Duke ranks higher than the younger son of a Duke, and thus retains her own 
Christian name in preference to his ; but the daughter of a Marquess ranks only 
as equal to a Duke's younger son, and consequently may take either his or her own 
Christian name after "The Lady" (his as a rule). We may put the ordinary practice 
upon marriage with younger sons more concisely thus : 
A Peer's daughter entitled "Lady" will on marriage become "The Lady John" if 
her husband's father was of higher rank than her own father, but will remain " The 
Lady Alice " if it was either trie same or inferior : there is, however, an option of 
either style (but regularly the husband's) if higher by only one degree, f 
If entitled "Honourable" she will become " The Lady John" on marrying a Peer's son 
designated "Lord John," but on marrying either another "Honourable" or a 
commoner she will be "The Hon. Mrs. John." 
It may be added to the above remarks that the widow of either a Lord by Courtesy or a 
younger son forfeits upon a second marriage any right to a title which had accrued to her 
by a first (as distinct from one which was her own by birth), though here again Custom 
humours her by continuing the courtesy-title or the prefix " The Lady," but not 
that of "Honourable," which, however, many ladies still strive desperately to retain (a 
Baronets widow has an express right to continue "Lady," with her late husband's sur- 
name, but a Knight's retains the distinction by courtesy only : again, if either of these 
marries an "Honourable," that title is really higher than "Lady" in her case). The 
daughter of a Peer who previously herself bore the title "Honourable," will on 
marrying a "Sir" become "The Hon. Lady B.," whilst if her previous title was 
"Lady" (with a Christian name) she will be entitled "The Lady Alice B.," 

* Note that this will not happen in the case of marriage of any Peer s daughter to the eldest son of a Duke, for 
the wife's rank cannot possibly be higher than his, and she will therefore take (with the rank of a Marchioness) the 
regular feminine of his own style whether Marquess, Earl, or even Lord. This rule of precedence by actual rank 
regardless of style may seem at first inconsistent with the latter half of the note that follows ; but the difference 
there denoted is confined to those cases in which a lady can retain her former style for the express purpose of 
keeping herself superior to her unfortunate husband. 

t Only a knowledge of individual instances can sometimes decide as to the exercise of this option. Two of the 
late Lord Salisbury's sons, as well as his brother, are married to Earls' daughters, but one of these is known as 
Lady Florence and the others as Lady Robert and Lady Eustace. But the reason for the exception socn 
becomes evident : Lady Florence's husband is known as the Rev. Lord William Cecil (though his first Christian 
name is Rupert), and there is another Lord Wm. Cecil, son of the 3rd Marquess of Exeter; the " Rev." distinguishes 
the husbands, but two " Lady Williams" would be confusing. Sometimes the option is extended to other cases, 
and a wife gracefully sinks her own rank in order to stand exactly on the level of her husband : thus Lady Maud 
Dundas, though a Marquess's daughter, took the courtesy-title of Viscountess Milton until she became Countess I 
Fitzwilliam. It has been amusingly remarked that if a Lady Frances, the daughter of a Duke, were to marry 
Lord Francis, the younger son of a Marquess, she would sink two degrees in rank if she called herself Lady Francis 
instead of Frances. 

Nomenclature of Peers' Relatives* 


disregarding the " Sir." A commoner marrying any person of title whatever follows her 
husband's style exactly, from " Duchess " downward to " The Lady JohnH." or 4 'The Hon. 
Mrs. Charles B." (thus the wife of an Earl's younger son is " Hon." only). As to the hus- 
band's Christian names, they may not always be needed after "Mrs." if no uncertainty is 
caused by their omission, and in point of fact they are very frequently omitted even when 
uncertainty is caused ; the wife of an eldest son, however, is correctly treated as the " Hon. 
Mrs." of the surname, and accordingly the wife of a Scottish " Master" (himself always 
* ' Honourable ") will be styled " The Hon. Mrs. N. ," unless, of course, she was previously 
" The Lady ; " and here we may remark that such forms as " The Mistress of Napier," 
"of Gray," or "of Sinclair," found occasionally in 'Burke,' are applied not to the wife 
of a "Master," but to the Peer's eldest daughter in the absence of a son. The Lord 
Chamberlain further informed us (1905) that the rule as to omitting the Christian 
name from the wife of an eldest son does not apply to husbands lower than the Peerage, 
so that even the wife of the heir to a baronetcy is strictly " Mrs. John B." and if she was 
"Hon." she will be " the Hon. Mrs. John B." (however conventionality may incline). 
The above rules show that while a lady may often rise by marriage, there is only one case in 
which she can sink by it— that, namely, in which a Peer's daughter marries an actual 

I Peer of a rank two steps lower than her father's. A Duke's daughter is "born in the 
degree of a Marchioness," and it has been remarked that if a Duke had four daughters 

' the three eldest of whom married an Earl, a Viscount, and a Baron, while the youngest 
married her father's footman, this last would retain her original rank, while the others, 
though wedded to Peers of the Realm, would all have sunk respectively one, two, and 

' three degrees beneath her. 

A morganatic marriage, a German institution not specifically recognised in this 
country, is one expressly entered into as such on account of the lower rank of the wife ; 

I it is lawful wedlock and renders the offspring legitimate, but excludes both them and 
their mother from any claim to the father's rank or inheritable property, and compels 
himself on marriage to renounce any claim he might possess to succession. 

Peers' Widows. — The use of the word "Dowager" or a substitute therefor may 
cause perplexity ; moreover, there is undoubtedly an antipathy to this term on the part 
of those ladies who have a horror of being considered old, so that it is desirable to use it 
with care, though, as being a form in use in the Court Circular, it ought not to 
give offence when correctly applied. So long, then, as the new Peer or Baronet is 
unmarried, the widow of his predecessor is styled precisely as when her husband was 
living, even if there co-exists a widow of a still earlier Peer ; but as soon as (and for so 
long as) a new possessor of her title appears she must be distinguished in some way. If 
she is either mother or grandmother of the new Peer or Baronet she then rightly takes 
t the above designation of Dowager ; but if she is only collaterally related, or stepmother, 
or if she is the Peer's or Baronet's mother whilst his grandmother is also living, then 
she takes the style "Mary, Lady A.," "Catherine, Countess of B.," &c. ; the elder 
lady in the latter case continuing to be " Dowager." 

hi Divorcees. — Our remarks under "Modes of Addressing " (page 74) have been more 
than once challenged, though our rule is identical with that given by ' Debrett.' But 
conventionality is apt to override rules, especially in a case of gratifying the favoured 
sex. Thus, strange as it seems, a lady who has divorced her husband continues very 
commonly to cling to his name, and if a title was attached it is a thing too precious to 
part with : indeed, one of the Judges in the recent Cowley appeal observed that he had 
never known a lady relinquish a title which she had once acquired (for the credit of the 
sex there are five or six such instances occurring in this book, but they are in the 
connection of re-marriage and not of divorce). Any title thus retained is of course, 
in " Debrett's " words, "assumptive and worthless, and ought not to be recognised." 
He adds, " Divorced peeresses, no matter whether they have been divorced by, or have 
themselves obtained a divorce from, their husbands, do not receive a summons to a 
Coronation." None the less the empty honour is claimed, so that, as it has been put to 
us, "any person addressing such a lady without giving her the title must expect his 
letter to go unanswered ; " very likely, but not, to our mind, very creditable to the lady 
who so acts : divorce with retained style is the annulling of a bargain, but the keeping 
back of part of the price. In the case of a surname only the matter is not quite 
the same, for a person can adopt any name which is clear from the least lurking 
of fraud, so that if Mary Jones marries John Smith and then divorces him, there appears 
to be nothing absolutely to prevent her calling herself Mrs. Mary Smith (but no longer 
Mrs. John Smith).

*#* This number is in excess of the total number of Lords Spiritual and Temporal, the discrepancy being caused 
by the f ollowing Lords being twice named in the Roll : 

Baron Loreburn as Lord High Chancellor and as Baron Loreburn (Nos. 5 and 610). 

Earl of Crewe as Lord President and as Earl of Crewe (Nos. 7 and 193). 

Marquess of Ripon as Lord Privy Seal and as Marquess of Ripon . . . . _ (Nos. 8 and 48). 

Earl of Liverpool as Lord Steward and as Earl of Liverpool (Nos. 54 and 199). 

Viscount Althorp as Lord Chamberlain and as Viscount Althorp (Nos. 200 and 241). 

[This deduction brings the actual number on the Roll to 6 to, which has, however, to be further reduced by 12 for 
the Minors, and 1 for the vacant Gardner Barony, after which the net number of Peers free to take part in the 
business of the House will be 606, which accords with that given under " House of Lords."]

The numerous Scottish and Irish Peers noticed above as possessing also Imperial 
titles are here arranged in a pair of alphabetical lists, the first under their "native " 
titles, the second under the Imperial. The latter are the ones invariably given in 
division lists of the House of Lords, but in a majority of instances, though far from 
always, they are inferior in rank to the former (precisely— 76 are inferior, 30 superior, 
12 identical in rank, and 15 more in both rank and designation). The higher title, 
which is naturally the one in conventional use, is printed in italics in each table.

and 51 Scottish of a total 87 : of the entire 262 there are therefore 133 with Imperial 
titles and 129 without. The legislative predominance of Ireland over Scotland is thus 
conspicuous here as it is in the number of Representative Peers (28 against 16) and in 
their representation in the Commons (103 against 72). There are several among the 
names, however, that should be regarded as those of English nobles who have come also 
into possession of Scottish or Irish Peerages. The Duke of Abercorn, the Marquess 
of Lansdowne, and the Earl of Verulam have both Scottish and Irish in addition to 
Imperial titles, as the list that follows will more readily exhibit.

*#* The mark t denotes a Scottish Peerage, § an Irish;* or unmarked, Imperial: ab., abeyant; dm., dormant. 
The dates of creation and extinction are appended to each title. For extinct Life Baronies see under " Life Peers." 
—Several of the following Peerages were held by former members of the Royal Family, and, guided by the kind 
advice of Mr. Cokayne, we treat these as possessing no real surname at all. The prevailing idea that the name is 
Guelph he dismisses as absurd, that having constituted the Christian name of a mediaeval Duke of Bavaria 
whose sister in 1040 married the Marquess of Este, and it is from that couple that the Hanoverian line is 
descended. Hence D'Este (which the Duke of Sussex adopted for his children) comes nearer to a correct name 
than the above, whilst Guelph d'Este has been supplied us by another authority. But neither of these names 
can hold good any later than the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert, Prince of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and descended 
from the ancient Counts of Wettin, which has changed the present line to that of " Saxony " or " Saxe-Coburg," 
and presumably made Wettin its surname if it possesses one at all— both that word and D'Este being really local 

To save overcrowding, we have removed from the list the following titles every one of which is simply a different 
degree of another, of the same designation and house, which still exists : Auckland Eldm. ; Bantry Eldm. ;

This dignified and at least nominally important body is a council of state appointed 
and periodically held by the Sovereign to concert matters for the public welfare. Its 
proceedings, however, are not published, and, except in the rare instances of a general 
gathering, only the few members specially summoned give their attendance at its 
meetings, so that, to all but perhaps half-a-dozen, the membership is for the most part 
an, honourable sinecure. A Privy Councillor is chosen at the Sovereign's will, and no 
patent is necessary ; the required oath once taken he becomes a Councillor for life or 
for the life of the Sovereign, though subject to removal or resignation. The number, 
which at the first was only about 12, is now indefinite : at present there are some 270 in 
the Council of Great Britain and 60 in that of Ireland (but some 20 of these are members 
of both). On the accession of a new Sovereign it must be reconstituted, or newly 
sworn in, within six months, and any member who does not present himself for 
re-swearing within that time forfeits his membership, though not the style of " Rt. 
Hon." The Lord President of the Council is chairman of the British Council, and the 
Lord Lieutenant of the Irish. The duties of these, or rather of the former, are defined 
as "to attend the Sovereign's person, to manage the debates in Council, to propose 
matters from the Sovereign," and report the issue. The Sovereign with its advice 
can dissolve or prorogue Parliament, and in some urgent cases he can issue proclama- 
tions and enforce them by pains and penalties. The Judicial Committee of the Privy 
Council is open to the attendance of any member possessing due legal qualifications, but 
only those usually attend who hold or have held high appointments in the law. The 
former* judicial functions of the entire Council are exercised by this Committee, whilst 
its administrative duties are transferred to other state departments. Some of the 
Colonial J udges have been recently added to this Committee. 

As noted above, there is a distinct Council for Ireland, though Scotland is content to 
participate in the larger and more important one, the former being concerned solely with 
Irish affairs. The members of both Councils range down from the first Prince of the 
Blood Royal to private gentlemen possessing no title except the dignified one of " Right 
Honourable," which is conferred by the membership itself. This title unfortunately has 
other applications, so that in the case of Peers there is no way of specifying their 
position as Councillors except by the added letters "P. C. ; " and " Right Honourable " 
must not be substituted for the higher titles of "Most Honourable " or "His Grace." 
The two lists of members as presented in the Almanack are arranged in accordance 
with the official roll, which follows strictly the Table of Precedence, and those wishing 
to familiarise themselves with that table may find interest in tracing out the observance 
of its laws as there displayed. Thus after the Royal members, Archbishops, and highest 
officials there come the Dukes of England, then two of Scotland (Buccleuch and Argyll, 
whose older title is Scottish), next two of Great Britain (Portland and Northumberland), 
and then one of the United Kingdom (Fife). The Marquesses follow on the same system. 
Next come the Earls, headed by a Household official, and followed by younger sons of 
Dukes ; next the Viscounts, headed like Earls and followed by an Earl's eldest son ; 
one Marquess's younger son ; the Bishop of London (ex officio, as are the Archbishops) ; 
the Barons ; the Speaker ; Secretaries of State not Peers ; one Viscount's eldest son ; 
Earls' younger sons ; and now the Table reaches the grade of the Privy Council itself, 
from which point all distinctions are disregarded — Baronets, Knights, and Viscounts' 
and Barons' younger sons — and we proceed in order of seniority alone. Thus, while 
recognising the scientific merits of an arrangement by precedence, we here submit for 

4 8 


practical Use & list in alphabetical order. Where no initial precedes the date of Sntry 
the member belongs to the Council of Great Britain ; an L denotes that Of Ireland ; 
and Cr. B. & L marks membership of both. It is noticeable that in the official 
list the members are termed Privy Counselors, which is correct in view of the wise 
counsel they are supposed to give ; but they are equally Councilors as being members of 
a Council. The Coronation robe of a Privy Councillor is a blue satin dress and cloak.

General Remarks.— This degree is often accounted the lowest grade of the major 
nobility, and, as was noticed under "Barons," its title grew out of a lower division of 
that rank of nobles. We meet with the phrase " Barones et Baron etti " so early as 1321, 
in the reign of Edward the Second, whilst his successor in 1340 by letters patent made 
an hereditary Baronet of William de la Pole. " Other Baronetcies," says Mr. Pixley in 
his very informing work, 'History of the Baronetage,' " were similarly created, . . . 
but, with the exception of a few cases in Ireland, the dignity had not been regularly 
hereditary, and long before the reign of James the First it had become practically 
unknown." The term was often confused, even officially, with that of "Banneret," so 
that in the case of Sir Ralph Pane, who was awarded the "dignitas Baronetti" by 
Edward the Sixth, it is doubtful which of the two honours was really designed, and 
practically evident that at most it was not a Baronetcy of the present form. As re- 
started under James the Pirst in 161 1 the degree became, as it is now, a rank inter- 

5© Introduction, 

mediate between the Peerage proper and the Knightage. It is linked with the nobility 
by virtue of its being hereditary and being conferred by patent alone, the early patents 
having closely resembled those of Barons ; but in other respects it has much the 
appearance of a specialised order of Knighthood — by its designation "Sir," its non- 
membership of the House of Lords and non-participation in the election of Represen- 
tative Peers in Scotland and Ireland, and its ranking in the scale of precedence below 
the Privy Council, Knights of the Garter, and even the old Knights Bannerets Royal. 
It has no political privileges attached, and consequently there are at present scarcely 
any means, as there are with Peers, for ascertaining the correct succession, the con- 
sequence being that spurious, not to say fraudulent, assumptions of baronetcies are 
cropping up and pestering us year after year. (See the paragraph on " Claimant 
Baronets " facing the Preface.) Every Baronet created since 1783 is required to register 
his pedigree and to receive a certificate from one of the Colleges of Arms. In the year 
161 2 five new privileges were granted, of which one was the right for every Baronet 
thereafter to claim knighthood, and for his eldest son (following feudal custom) to do 
the same. This last clause was distinctly specified in the terms of all patents issued up 
to 1827, and King James at the outset made a rule of knighting all heirs apparent ; in 
later days we have had fitful revivals of the custom in 1835, 1865, and in the case of a 
son of Sir James L. Cotter in 1874; but other applications have proved unsuccessful, 
it is said, from defects in the patents of baronetcy. The dignity, in all the three 
Kingdoms, was instituted at first as a means of raising money, though other objects were 
held out. The recipients, who were to be limited in number, were to be gentlemen 
(armigeri) "of good birth and fortune," possessed of not less than a thousand pounds 
per annum clear, and in case of war they were to occupy posts of honour near to the 
royal standard. The rank has been greatly enlarged both as to actual numbers and 
lowering of the qualifications, whilst the money payment has wholly ceased, though, 
to preserve the ancient form of warrant, a tally is struck at the Exchequer and handed 
to the new Baronet by way of receipt. An instance is recorded of the grant of a baronetcy 
to a female— Dame Mary Bolles, of Osberton, Notts. (1635, in the Scottish Baronetage), 
and it is stated that this is not quite the only one, whilst under "Descent of Peers" we 
have observed that in some patents the succession is allowed to follow through a female 
parent, or, we may add, an earlier ancestor. Nearly one-sixth of the present number 
of Baronets enjoy Peerages, six being Dukes. A Baronet has no coronet or robes, and in 
the English and Irish divisions no badge whatever beyond the device of "the bloody hand 
of Ulster " to be charged upon his coat of arms : see upon this point, as also upon the 
succession of Baronets, two passages on pages 7, 8. Early in the late reign an effort was 
made by the whole body of Baronets (see Broun's ' Baronetage ') to obtain some further 
distinctive marks ; it was ineffectual — it is stated, because " too much was asked ; " but 
the recently founded "Standing Council of the Baronetage" (to whom we are under J 
considerable obligations in the revision of this section) includes this among its aims, 
which seek to vindicate the claims of the Baronetage generally, to "clear it of all 
resemblance to Knighthood," and to protect the rank against spurious assumptions.* 
When there are two or more Baronets of the same surname it is customary to 
distinguish them by appending the name of their seat (or of that of the founder of 
their line, as they may prefer) ; and when, as not unfrequently happens, this name 
is identical with their own (e.g. Campbell, Baronet of Campbell) our northern friends 
often substitute "Campbell of that ilk." The wives of Baronets are Baronetesses, 
but the word is scarcely ever used; they are styled "Lady" without any Christian 
name, or "Dame " toith the Christian name (an old form still used in formal documents 
and personally favoured by some), and these titles they have the special privilege of 
retaining after a second marriage though to a commoner (if daughters of Peers their 
correct style is given on pages 25-7, where reference is also made to the use of 
"Dowager." Designation of a Baronet, Sir A. B., Baronet or Bt. 

Baronets of England, Great Britain, and the United Kingdom. — We have here 
precisely the same three historical distinctions as under the Peers : Baronets created 
f v: 1 from 1611 up to June 20, 1707, rank as "Baronets of England;" from that! 
rffln date to 1800 as "Baronets of Great Britain;" and after 1800 as "Baronets 
IajJ of the United Kingdom " — the Scottish creations continuing by the side of 
the first only, and the Irish by the side of first, and second. The English!* 

* The occasion of the starting of the Council was this. The issue of Life Barons had been given a rank 
between the issue of other Barons and the Baronets themselves, which proceeding was held by the latter to be a 
breach of faith. But the only alternative to the course taken would have been the use of the form "Youngei 
Sons of Barons and all sons of Life Barons," these latter having no precedence of eldest sons over younger. 

The Baronetage. 51 

degree was instituted by James the First in 161 1, ostensibly for the purpose of providing 
means to effect the settlement of Ulster, then in a state of anarchy. A sufficient sum 
of money was required from each of the 200 gentlemen to whom the honour was 
awarded to provide for the maintenance of thirty foot-soldiers at eightpence per day 
for three years ; the total of this was about ^1095, and the first year's instalment was 
to be paid down in advance. King James's successors, moreover, paid no heed to 
the limitation of numbers, so that by the reign of Charles the Second the 200 had 
increased to 888. There are now about a hundred short of this latter figure, but about 
930 including Scottish and Irish Baronets. The first to receive the title was Sir Nicholas 
Bacon, elder brother of Sir Francis (Kt.), afterwards Lord Chancellor Bacon, and a 
I descendant of Sir Nicholas is still the Premier Baronet of England (see remark under 
. the name in the Directory). The name of Sir Robert J. Dashwood is cited as Premier 
Baronet of "Great Britain," and that of Sir Henry M. Vavasour as of "the United 
kingdom;" but of course the junior Baronet in an earlier series takes precedence of 
the premier in a later one. 

Baronets of Scotland and Nova Scotia.— As partly remarked already, these Baronets 
I date exclusively from the eighty-two years between the institution of the degree in 1625 

Sand the Union with England in 1707, all later Baronets of Scottish nationality 
being Baronets either " of Great Britain " or " of the United Kingdom." It must 
be understood that there is no essential distinction between Baronets of Nova 
Scotia and those of Scotland, and though the connection with the American 
Colony ceased even nominally in 1638 (it had in fact become a French possession before 
1 that date, and was only re-ceded in 1713, six years after the Union), we find the Nova 
"Scotia arms upon the shields of several Baronets of much later creation, their use having 
1! actually been revived by agreement at a meeting of Scottish Baronets in 1775. This 
: degree was planned by James the First in 1621, its avowed object being to assist the 
■ settlement of Nova Scotia. This monarch granted a charter of the baronetcy of " New 
• Scotland " to Sir William Alexander, afterwards Earl of Stirling ; but owing to the King's 
ideath the design was left to be carried out by Charles the First in 1625. Sir Robert 
Gordon, son of the Earl of Sutherland, was Premier Baronet, he having already received 
from King James the baronetcy of Galloway in New Scotland (his descendant Sir Robert 
Glendonwyn Gordon holding the premier distinction still). The number of the degree 
was not to exceed 150, and to each of these, on payment of a sum of about £2.000, was 
to be assigned a tract of 6000 acres " of good land." No service was required from them, 
nor was any trouble taken to see that they carried out the scheme of colonisation : the 
raising of money to the Crown was the one great concern. Sir William Alexander, who 
first allotted the baronetcies, transferred his rights and possessions to a French Huguenot, 
Claude St. Estienne, Seigneur de la Tour, who figures in a spirited ballad of the poet 
Whittier's. The Baronets of Scotland, alone of the three, possess a distinctive Badge, 
consisting in an enamelled decoration worn from the neck by an orange-tawny ribbon, 
j and containing the arms of Scotland displayed upon a small shield (inescutcheon) borne 
upon a larger one charged with a St. Andrew's Cross, and surmounted by a crown, the 
whole within an oval bearing the motto "Fax mentis honestse gloria" (Glory, the 
beacon -light of the noble mind). This badge was substituted for the originally intended 
arms of Nova Scotia ; with it King Charles conferred the crest, which is a branch of 
laurel and a thistle issuing from two conjoined hands, the one armed and the other 
i naked, with the motto, "Munit haec, altera vincit" (One defends, the other conquers). 

Baronets of Ireland. — These all necessarily date from prior to the Union in 1800, 
all later Irish Baronets being of " the United Kingdom." The degree was instituted by 
r /fh. 1 James the First in 1619 for a similar purpose with the English Baronetage : the 
wjjj account given under that heading will therefore sufficiently apply. Sir Algernon 
IN-iJ Charles Coote is the Premier Baronet of Ireland, his ancestor Sir Charles Coote, 
Vice-President of the province of Connaught, having received his patent in 1621 ; 
the Baronetcy merged in the Valentia viscounty, however, dates from the previous year 
and is apparently the very first that was granted. In Ireland as in England there had 
very early existed an hereditary rank bearing the style of Baronets, amongst whom was 
Wellesleye, Baronet of Narraghe, who was ancestor of the Duke of Wellington. These 
were descendants of certain "lesser Barons" whom Edward the Third had summoned 
to Parliament for a special object, but who, not continuing to be summoned, had their 
baronial rank sunk to that of Baronets.

Though this grade has long gone out of existence it demands notice from its earlier 
importance, as in its more honourable form it was superior to that of Baronets. It was 
ordinarily the reward of merit in the field, and was conferred, under the royal standard, by 
the Xing himself or the Prince of Wales when present, or by the General in their absence, 
in which last case it ranked inferior to the dignity of a Baronet : the former class were 
Knights Bannerets Royal, the latter Knights Bannerets of the Secondary Creation. 
The Knight elect was introduced into the presence of the King (or General), having a 
long pennon on which his arms were painted, when His Majesty, "after good words and 
wishes," commanded the tip of the said pennon to be cut off so that it might be 
converted into a four-square banner. This explains the name, and an assurance of the 
importance of the distinction is conveyed by the fact that no other person below the 
dignity of a Baron was allowed to bear his arms upon a banner. Col. John Smith, who 
recovered the royal standard at Edgehill, was awarded this honour by Charles the 
First ; but a more recent instance of its bestowal occurred when George the Third, at 
a naval review at Portsmouth in 1773, made of Admirals Pye and Sprye and Captains 
Knight, Bickerton, and Vernon, the very last recipients of the English dignity of Knight 
Banneret. It was never hereditary in this country, though it was so in Prance. 


General Remarks. — In ' The Book of the Court ' we find this note : " It is a curious 
circumstance that the English name of this degree is almost the only one which does not 
imply its equestrian nature, for in the French a Knight is styled ' Chevalier ' from 
cheval, as in German 'Ritter 'or rider; " " Caballiero " is further cited as a Spanish form, 
adding, "From the spurs of gold with which Knights were generally invested they 
were likewise frequently designated Equites Aurati" The familiar form of the knight in 
chess will occur to every one in this connection. Knighthood in its earlier days pertained 
only to men of arms, and it has been noted that Sir William Walworth, who appears 
to have been the first civilian to receive the honour, actually obtained it for performii»g 
the military function of slaying Wat Tyler. Henry the Eighth knighted serjeants-at-law, 
and James the First knighted anybody who would pay. The ceremonies of investiture 
were anciently in part courtly and in part devotional. A feast was held, and robes, 
arms, and spurs were put on ; whilst both before and after the conf ei-ring of the dignity 
the Knight had to take part in services in the church, comprising a solemn confession, a 
vigil, and the sacrament. A sword used then to be girded on, but for this there came to 
be substituted the modern ceremony of the accolade or tap with that weapon by the 
Sovereign upon the neck and shoulders of the Knight (King James, famed for his 
awkwardness, was only prevented by the Duke of Buckingham from thrusting the sword 
during this process into Sir Kenelm Digby's eye). But at one time nobles and ecclesiastics 
also were wont to confer the title, and Kings themselves have received it from such, as 
did Louis the Eleventh from Philip of Burgundy, and Francis the First from Bayard, 
the Knight " sans peur et sans reproche ; " and so, in our own country, Brand, Abbot of 

The Knightage, Companionage, &c. 


Bury St. Edmunds, knighted Hereward and another, whilst Lanfranc, Archbishop of 
Canterbury, conferred the rank upon William Rufus even during the reign of his haughty 
father. Generals in the army had indisputably the power at one period, and laws were 
even _ enacted under which penalties were sometimes enforced both upon giver and 
recipient when the latter was below the status of a gentleman. 

The above were " Knights " in the broad sense of the term — not Knights Bannerets nor 
Knights of any distinctive Order, nor even Knights Bachelors until in process of time 
they became merged in that rank as stated further on. The rank of a Knight is 
exceedingly ancient. Alfred the Great is known to have knighted his nephew Athelstan, 
and Segar recounts that a Knight was created in this country so early as the year 506 
(the reputed era of King Arthur's Knights of the Bound Table). 

There are with us eight leading Orders of Knighthood — the Garter, the Thistle, St. 
Batrick, the Bath, the Star of India, St. Michael and St. George, the Indian Empire, 
and the Royal Victorian Order. To these we may add Knights Bachelors, though not a 
constituted Order ; also, but with Companions only, the Order of Merit, the Distin- 
guished Service Order, the Imperial Service Order, and (for Ladies) the Victoria and 
Albert and the Crown of India ; yet again there are the Order of Mercy and the Knights of 
the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem in England, which embrace both sexes, and which, 
like the Military Knights of Windsor, confer no precedence and are denoted by no initials. 
Not one of these is hereditary, though Knights of the Garter, even were they only com- 
moners, would take precedence of Baronets. Both this and the Orders of the Thistle and 
St. Batrick are regularly restricted to nobles, the only recorded exceptions being the 
bestowal of the Garter upon Sir Robert Walpole and William Herbert who became Earl of 
: Pembroke, and of the Thistle upon the present Duke of Argyll when Marquess of Lorne, 
j j and the late Sir William Stirling T Maxwell, whilst it has been declared that the Garter was 
1 offered upon his retirement to Mr. Gladstone. The title "Sir " is formally prefixed to the 
! names, when given in full, of all Beers who are also either Knights or Baronets. 
Wherever in the Knightage the husband is styled " Sir " the wife, in conventional usage, 
has the title "Lady "or "Dame" as in the case of a Baronetess. But in her case the 
' honour is one of courtesy and not of right, as we are shown by an amusing story 
1 in ' The Book of the Court : ' The lady of a certain City Knight was once pre- 
| sented to the old Princess Amelia, who was very deaf. The Princess, not aware that 
she was merely a Knight's lady, was about to salute her as she would have done with 
the daughter of a Peer, to the great horror of the Gentleman Usher in Waiting, who, 
shocked at such a violation of etiquette, exclaimed, loud enough to be heard by all 
I present, " Don't kiss her, Your Royal Highness; she is not a real Lady ! " 

All of the above Orders have been customarily conferred by the accolade (see 
I above), but the higher ones have been more and more often made exceptions, and it 
I is now a frequent course for even a Knight Bachelorship to be granted by letters-patent 
when distance or any other cause interferes with a personal conferment. Some of the 
; most recent recipients of the Garter and Thistle have, however, undergone the ceremony 
of knighting, and two Knights of St. Patrick submitted to it from the Viceroy during 
I the year 1900, though the latter's creative power extends only to Knights Bachelor. 

A Central Chancery for all the Orders of Knighthood was established in 1904, and 
I it was ordained that the issue of insignia and the registration of warrants should be 
carried out by the Lord Chamberlain's Department at St. James's Palace*. 

We are now inserting, from Whitaker's Almanack, small cuts of the Stars worn 
by the respective Orders ; but for those of the Garter, Thistle, St. Patrick, and the Bath 
(G.C.B. Mil.) far clearer ones will be found on our title-page, described on page ix. 

The Most Noble Order of the Garter. — The commonly accepted date of the 
institution of this Order is August 1348, or thereabouts, its founder being Edward the 
, Third ; it was re-constituted in 1805 and again in 1831. The story of its origin, 

' j|l§|L in one form or other, is familiar to all, and the one that seems most to be pre- 
pipi ferred is that it was Edward's own Queen who dropped her garter, and 
uttered the famous words, " Honi soit qui mal y pense ! " upon his picking it up, 
in response to his rally as to what would be thought of her for thus losing her garter in 
public. The further incident is appended that Edward then placed the garter round his 
own knee by way of rebuke to those who " saw harm " in it, and that the occurrence 
thus grew famous, and the garter came to be adopted as the battle-signal at Crecy. 
Another story is that Richard Coeur de Lion during the Crusades once adopted a white 
leathern strap below the left knee to distinguish his own soldiers from infidels during a 
night assault — a theory which would place the origin of the Order a century and a 

58 Introduction. 

half earlier, and which fails to account for the blue colour of the Garter and still more 
for the origin of the motto. Sir Harris Nicolas gives as a translation of this motto, " May 
he be dishonoured who thinks ill of it, "adding ' ' i.e. , the expedition to France." This hints 
at some third original for the Order, apparently following Camden in taking the Crecy 
battle-signal as the starting-point ; but here again we want explanation as to why any 
one, in those days at least, should " think ill " of a grand warlike expedition. But 
though mistrusting this application, we must all admit without hesitation that Sir 
Harris's translation itself is more nearly literal than the one commonly received, which 
first ignores the "y" for the sake of making out a proverb applicable to anything or 
nothing, and then repeats the word "evil" without any warrant from the original. 
For the word "honi," which in modern French would be "honni," is not even a 
noun at all, but a participle (from "honnir," a verb used only in the passive and in 
the sense of " vilipender," but with a force of indignation which makes it amount 
to a curse). " Accursed be he v/ho sees harm in the Garter " is evidently the real 
intent of the words ; Sir Harris's "dishonoured " is far too feeble. 

The Order itself may be said to rank indisputably as the first in the world, and the 
number of foreign Sovereigns who have accepted it is almost countless. It is 
still limited to twenty-five Knight Companions, with the Sovereign and the Prince 
of Wales, and such occasional extra Knights and foreign rulers and dignitaries as 
may be admitted by special statute, the "extras" being merged in the regular five- 
and-twenty upon the first occurrence of vacancies ; the only alteration has been the 
extension of the limits to descendants of the first instead of the second George. A Knight 
of the Garter is at his investiture allotted a stall in St. George's Chapel at Windsor, 
over which are set up, to be retained throughout his life, his sword, helmet, crest, 
banner, and a plate containing his arms and titles : this practice is still in vogue. 

The officers of the Order are — Prelate, the Bishop of Winchester ; Chancellor, the 
Bishop of Oxford (formerly Salisbury) ; Registrar, the Dean of Windsor — all three ex 
officio ; besides these are Garter King of Arms, usually called " Garter," and the Gentle- 
man Usher of the Black Bod — these two being personal appointments. The Prelate and 
Chancellor are authorised to wear upon their left side a scutcheon of the arms of St. 
George ; the latter wears also a gold medal enamelled on the one side with a rose and on 
the other with a St. George, both encircled with the garter. The Registrar has a mantle 
of crimson satin with an escutcheon of St. George's arms embroidered on the left 
shoulder ; and on his breast he wears a red book of the Order with a device of two pens 
within the garter. The mantle of "Garter" himself is similar, and he wears a gold 
medal enamelled with the Sovereign's arms impaled with the Cross of St. George, 
surrounded with the garter, and surmounted by a crown. Like other Kings of Arms 
(for whose names and titles see page 70) he has a crown of silver gilt, figured in sixteen 
oak-leaves. Black Rod, who is the principal officer of the House of Lords, again has a 
similar mantle. His Rod is surmounted by the Lion of England, and he wears before 
his breast a gold badge composed on both sides of a knot encompassed with the garter 
and motto. He is granted for life a house on the south side within Windsor Castle, 
whilst the Prelate and Chancellor have apartments respectively in the Winchester and 
Chancellor's Towers of the same. 

The decorations of the Knights of the Order constitute a most elaborate and imposing 
array, comprising the Garter, Mantle, Surcoat, Star, Hood, Hat, Collar, George, Lesser 
George, and Ribbon. First, the Garter itself (worn below the left knee), of dark blue 
velvet edged with gold, the motto in golden letters, and the buckle and pendant of chased 
gold (those awarded to foreign Sovereigns have been most richly gemmed, that sent to Gus- 
tavus Adolphus having the motto composed of some four hundred diamonds). Secondly 
comes the Mantle, which is of dark blue velvet lined with white taffeta (this is the mantle 
worn by Sovereigns upon state occasions, the regal distinction lying in the extra length of 
the train). Thirdly we have the Surcoat, of crimson velvet, lined like the Mantle and 
adorned like it upon the left breast with an eight-pointed silver-embroidered Star, within 
which is the Red Cross of St. George, the Avhole encircled by a miniature blue garter. 
After these come the Hood, resembling the Surcoat in colour and material, and the Hat, 
which is of black velvet and surmounted by a plume attached by diamonds and composed 
of white ostrich feathers with a central tuft of black. ones from the heron. Then there is 
the Collar, which is constructed of twenty-six circular medals of gold fastened together 
by chains exactly in the manner of the circles in our title-page ; each medal has for its 
border a garter with its motto, and for its interior a rose, alternately white and red : 
between each medal and the next is a true-lovers' knot, formed of gold and enamelled 
white. The twenty-six "garters" as they are termed (we here call them medals fop 

The Knightage, Companionage ) &c. 


clearness, as the idea of twenty -six garters round the neck might be too suggestive of 
strangulation) correspond to the number of the Order — the Sovereign and Knight 
Companions; the entire Collar weighs exactly thirty-two ounces.* Suspended to this 
Collar over the breast is the Badge or George, an image of that saint encountering the 
Dragon ; the Lesser George, which is similar, is attached to the broad dark blue Ribbon 
of the Order, passing over the left shoulder and crossing obliquely to beneath the right 
arm. Designation of the Order, the appended letters K.G. 

The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order op the Thistle.— The Scottish Order 
of the Thistle is reputed to be of very remote origin : some have assigned it to a.d. 787, 
and it is said to have originated in the vision of a bright cross in the heavens seen 
by Achaius, King of Scots, and Hungus, King of the Picts, as they were engaged 
in prayer in the night before their battle with Athelstan, King of England. 
What element of truth there may be in this no one can now confidently state. 
What is historical is that in the year 1540 James the Fifth either established or revived 
the Order, and that it had again to be restored in 1687 by J ames the Seventh of Scotland 
and Second of England, who created eight Knights and assigned to them the royal chapel 
at Holyrood, which is still the chapel of the Order. Once more the Order collapsed 
through the Revolution of the following year, but on December 31, 1703, it was again 
and more permanently established by Queen Anne. In 1827 it was decreed that its 
membership should comprise the Sovereign and sixteen Knights, but other personages 
of the Royal Family have since been added. Its officials are the Dean, the Secretary, 
Lyon King of Arms, and the Gentleman Usher of the Green Rod. The decorations con- 
sist of the Badge or Jewel, the Star, Collar, Mantle, and Ribbon. The Badge is in the 
form of a somewhat elongated eight-pointed star, and is charged with a gold enamelled 
figure of St. Andrew holding before him his own cross : it is worn either pendent to 
the Collar or attached to the dark green Ribbon of the Order, which passes over the left 
shoulder and across the breast. The Star, properly so called, is itself formed in part of a 
St. Andrew's Cross of silver embroidery, between the four limbs of which are four starry 
rays, the centre being occupied by a thistle (blue flower with green foliage), which is 
surrounded by a circle with the motto, " Nemo me impune lacessit " (No one provokes 
me with impunity) : this is worn on the left side of the coat or cloak. The Collar is 
composed of a series of golden thistles alternating with sprigs of rue. The Mantle (a 
recent addition) is of green velvet lined with taffeta. The Chapel of the Order is in St. 
Giles's Cathedral, Edinburgh. Designation, the letters K.T. 

The Most Illustrious Order of St. Patrick. — This, the leading Order of Ireland 
as the Thistle is of Scotland, was instituted by George the Third in 1783. The number of 
Knight Companions was originally fifteen, but was increased in 1833 to twenty- 
two, in addition to the Sovereign, the Lord Lieutenant (as Grand Master), and 
some members of the Royal Family. All Lords Lieutenant on retirement retain 
the insignia, but not the ex-officio knighthood. There was formerly a religious cere- 
mony at investiture, but this was abolished on the disestablishment of the Irish 
Church, and simultaneously the offices of Prelate and Registrar have lapsed, whilst the 
Chancellor, instead of being an Archbishop, is now the Secretary for Ireland of the 
Ministry of the day. The other officers are the Ulster King of Arms, the Secretary, the 
Usher of the Black Rod (Ireland), and the Genealogist. The decorations consist of the 
Badge, Star, Collar, Mantle, and Ribbon. The Badge and Star have each of them in the 
centre a St. Patrick's Cross in red surmounted by a green leaf of shamrock, each lobe of 
which is charged with an Imperial Crown ; around this is a circle with a motto in gold 
letters, " Quis separabit ? " (Who shall separate us ? ) ; surrounding this again there is in the 
Badge, which is of gold, a wreath of shamrocks confining the whole within an oval out- 
line, whilst in the Star there are eight spreading rays of silver : these two ornaments are 
worn as under the previous Orders. The Collar is wholly of gold and made up of a series 
of five roses, two harps, and an Imperial Crown, alternating with eight golden knots, the 
roses being enamelled alternately white petals within red and red within white ; whilst 
the crown, which occupies the front centre, has attached to it a third and much larger 
harp forming the connecting-link between the Collar and Badge (the other two harps are 
at the sides, the roses three behind and two in front, the crown taking in this last position 
the place of the centre one). The Mantle is of sky-blue tabinet lined with white silk. 
The Ribbon is sky-blue, and is worn over the right shoulder. Designation, the letters K.P. 

* Among peculiar Court usages it is noted that no Collar of any Order may be worn after sunset ; also, that any 
member of the Household must display a portion of his linen collar above the golden one ! 

6o Introduction. 

The Most Honourable Order of the Bath.— The name of this, by far the largest 
of our Orders of Knighthood and the highest in honour of those to which commoners can 
hope to attain, was evidently taken from an initiatory ceremony of bathing. If 
it is too much to assert that the Order itself was founded in 1399, it appears 
historically true that Henry the Fourth did, on his coronation in that year, 
confer a distinguished knightly honour upon forty-six gentlemen who under- 
G.c.B.Mii. wen t a series of forms upon the occasion, of which ablution was a principal item ; 

indeed, we are told that in 1127 Henry the First made Geoffrey of Anjou and five 
others "Knights of the Bath" at the marriage of his daughter the Princess 
Matilda, whilst Burke tells us that the 2nd Lord Willoughby de Eresby 
"received knighthood by bathing" from Edward the Second. But it was not 
till 1725 that the Order was placed upon a solid foundation ; since then it has 
been successively enlarged in 1815, 1847, 1861, 1887, and 1901. We are told by 
Froissart of Henry the Fourth's Knights being presented by the King with 
"long green coats, the sleeves whereof were cut straight and furred with 
miniver, and with great hoods or chaperons furred in the same manner, and 
b. Mil. after the fashion used by prelates ; and every one of these Knights on his left 
shoulder had a double cordon, or string of white silk, to which white tassels 
were pendent." On the evening previous to their investiture they were all 
assembled together, and each of them had his separate chamber and bath, the 
rites of the latter having to be duly performed that night. This ceremony, 
'• Clv - however, appears to have been observed at the creation of Knights much earlier 
still ; but we find the Order in existence later on, and habitually bestowed on 
state occasions upon such of the flower of the nobility as had received no other 
knighthood. . Thus we can supplement Froissart's account by a more definite 
c.b. Mil. one as described on the investiture of a number of Knights in 1610, when Prince 
Badge. Henry, son of James the First, was created Prince of Wales. Those to be 
invested were bidden to repair to Durham House in the Strand, and were conducted in 
the evening to the bathing-chamber, "where for each of them was provided a several 
bathing-tub, which was lined both within and without with white linen and covered 
with red say. Early the next morning they were awakened with music, and at their 
uprising invested in their hermit's habit." So attired and without shoes they were brought 
into the chapel, where a solemn oath was administered to them to "honour God and main- 
tain true religion, love their Sovereign, serve their country, help maidens, widows, and 
orphans, and to the utmost of their power cause equity and justice to be observed." 
After this they were invested in crimson robes, with white gloves, white boots, white 
crosses, and white hats with white feathers, and they then mounted on horseback, each 
Knight between two esquires, with footmen attending, and a page in front carrying the 
sword and spurs. In this array they rode to the Court gate, and there individually (the 
highest in rank first) entered the hall and knelt before the King, to whom the sword of 
each was handed, when he passed the belt over the neck of the Knight and placed the 
sword under the left arm ; two principal nobles then put on the spurs. All being con- 
cluded, they returned to Durham House, where a dinner was set before them which 
they were not to touch, but to leave to their esquires and pages. In the afternoon they 
returned fasting to Court and passed a long service in the King's chapel. On making 
their exit they were met by the King's cook, " who stood there with his white apron and 
sleeves, and a chopping-knife in his hand, and challenged their spurs, which were 
redeemed with a noble in money, threatening them nevertheless that if they should not 
be true and loyal to the King, it must be his office to hew them from their heels." The 
above is culled from a paper preserved by Mr. Anstis. The last of this Order of 
Knights of the Bath are stated by Mr. Walford to have been the sixty-eight created by 
Charles the Second at his coronation. _ We pass to 1725, when George the First renewed 
the Order, fixing it at thirty-seven Knights and the Sovereign. It was in 1815, however, 
that it was enlarged and modelled into an arrangement with three Classes, though only 
the highest of these comprised as yet a Civil Division, and this limited to one-sixth of the 
total of the Class (hitherto the letters K.B. forming the unvarying designation of any 
Knight of the Bath). In 1847 it was again enlarged, the Civil Division being extended 
to the other two Classes and increased in numbers in the first. Eventually the numbers 
were fixed as stated below, but these are exclusive of the Royal Family and of such 
distinguished foreigners as may be admitted Honorary Members of either Division 
or Class : even then much laxity obtains by the temporary use of the word 
" Additional " (and so with the Orders generally). It must also be particularly noted 
that great numbers of military men are found under the Civil Division, on account of 

The Knightage, Companionage, &c. 61 

their special services having been, of a scientific or other non-military character or of 
their belonging to the Auxiliary Forces^ whereas actual military service^ with mention 
in a Gazette, is Required for the other Division ) a few have Obtained both Divisions. 

The officers are the Dean (the Dean of Westminster^ the Bath King of Arms, the 
Registrar and Secretary, and the Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod. The Duke 
of Connaught was in 1901 appointed Great Master, an honour previously held by his 
present Majesty, and at one time by their father, the Prince Consort. As a rule, though 
not without frequent exceptions* recipients of this Order must begin with the lowest 
Class, or Companions, and proceed to Knights Commanders before they can become 
Grand Crosses. The Military Division of even the lowest rank is only conferred upon 
such distinction in action against the enemy as shall procure a medal or other 
decorative badge, or else a special mention in despatches ; it is never granted to any officer 
of lower grade than that of Major in the Army or Commander in the Navy — indeed 
very' rarely even so low, the Distinguished Service Order being substituted. 

The decorations of the Order consist of the Badge, Star, Collar, and Ribbon. The 
Badge for the Military Division is a (genuine) Maltese Cross of gold with eight silver 
enamelled balls upon the points, and within each of the four principal angles a lion ; in 
the central circle are a rose, thistle, and shamrock issuing from a sceptre, with three 
Albert Crowns interspersed (crowns with four arches) ; in the border is the motto, " Tria 
juncta in uno " (Three joined in one), with a laurel-wreath completely surrounding it, 
whilst in a scroll beneath are the words " Ich dien " (I serve) : by the Grand Crosses 
this is worn pendent from the Collar, by the Knights Commanders from the Ribbon, and 
by Companions from the button-hole. The Badge of the Civil Division is also of gold, 
and in the centre is similar to the above but larger (decreasing however with the three 
Classes), and it is oval and without the surrounding cross and lions. The Star is of silver, 
and for the Grand Crosses of the Military Division resembles the Badge as to the cross, 
laurel-wreath, and mottoes, but has simply three Imperial Crowns in the central space, 
being externally surrounded with a glory of silver names ; for the Civil Grand Crosses 
there is the same centre, but an eight-rayed star in lieu of flames, cross, and wreath ; 
for the Knights Commanders there is a silver cross-pattee round the same centre, the 
Military Division alone taking the laurel-wreath and the scroll ; Companions have no 
Star, but only the Badge, like that of each Division of other Classes. The Collar of the 
Grand Crosses, both Civil and Military, is of gold and weighs thirty ounces troy ; it is 
composed of nine Albert Crowns alternating with eight combinations of roses, thistles, and 
shamrocks, the whole series being linked together by seventeen golden knots enamelled 
white. The Ribbon is red, and worn over the right shoulder by Gx-and Crosses, 
but round the neck by Knights Commanders, who utilise it in place of the Collar for 
suspension of the Badge ; Companions have neither Collar nor Star, and suspend 
the Badge from the button-hole. Every G.C.B. is entitled to " supporters " in his 
coat of arms. On high state occasions the Knights wear a crimson surcoat and red 
mantle, vest and breeches of white satin, white stockings and shoes, golden spurs, and 
a high-crowned hat with a plume of white feathers. The Chapel of the Order is 
Henry the Seventh's Chapel, Westminster Abbey. The designations with the nominal 
limiting numbers are as under, these numbers being at the present date all greatly 
exceeded, a special order in 1901, when the Military Division was increased enormously, 
having pronounced those in excess to be "additional," in virtue of a provision that 
the second and third Classes might be enlarged on the occurrence of a war. The 
nominal total is 1338, and the oddness of the figures throughout is perplexing when we 
come to discover that about 1800 is the present actual membership without including 
Honorary Members :

The Most Exalted Order of the Star op India. — The Order next in precedence 
after the Bath is of a very modern date, having been constituted by her late Majesty in 

.^1%, 1861, and subsequently enlarged successively in 1866, 1875, 1876, 1897, and 
1903. Its purpose is to reward services in and for India, and to recognise the 

WW loyalty of friendly native rulers and chiefs. It consists of the Sovereign, the 
G.cs.1. &c Viceroy of India as Grand Master, some 276 Knights and Companions disposed 
in three Classes as below, and such extra and Honorary Members as the Sovereign may 
from time to time appoint : originally it had no division into Classes, and the designa- 
tion K.S.I, then represented the onlyjtitle which it conferred. The officers are the 

6 s introduction. 

Registrar and the Secretary (who is the foreign Secretary to the Indian Govern 
ment for the time being), and the decorations the Badge, Star, Collar, Ribbon, and 
Mantle. The Badge has hitherto been an onyx cameo of Queen Victoria's bust set 
in an oval and surrounded with the motto " Heaven's Light our Guide ; " it is sur- 
mounted by a five-rayed star 4 wholly in diamonds, which forms the connecting-link with 
the Collar. The Star proper (first two Classes) has in its centre a smaller star like 
the preceding, with the same encircling motto, also in diamonds, and around the 
whole a glory of golden flames. The Collar is of gold, and adorned, enamelled in their 
proper colotirs, with an Heraldic Crown, five red-and-white roses, six lotuses, and 
ten pairs of palm branches. The Ribbon is sky-blue with a narrow white stripe towards 
each edge, and is worn by Grand Commanders over the right shoulder, crossing to the left, 
and by Knights Commanders round the neck, as with the preceding Order ; Companions 
attach the Badge by it to the left breast. The Mantle is of light blue satin lined with 
white and adorned with blue and silver tassels and a representation of the Star. Desig- 
nations and limits (as increased in 1903) :

In 1st Class, 18 each European and Indian ; ex -Viceroys additional. 

The Most Distinguished Order op St. Michael and St. _ George. — Though 
clearly older than the preceding and now of much wider application, this Order has 
^Mfa. been placed after it in dignity, because, having been originally established (in 
; «§§||§[ 1818) to commemorate the placing of the Ionian Islands under the protec- 
H§Pr torate of Great Britain, it was limited at first to natives of these islands 
c.c.m.g. and of Malta, and to " such other subjects of His Majesty as may hold 
high and confidential situations in the Mediterranean : " indeed, it was not made 
applicable to the Colonies generally until some years after the foundation of the ' ' Star 
of India." In 1832 its three Classes were fixed at the numbers of fifteen, twenty, 
and twenty-five respectively ; but it was enlarged successively in 1868, 1877, 1879, and 
1887, till it has come to be assignable to any person who has rendered valuable services 
in either Colonial or Foreign Affairs. It now comprises the Sovereign, the Grand 
Master or Principal Knight Grand Cross, a number of Royal Princes, with foreign 
Princes and persons of distinction (who are Honorary Members), and the ordinary 
Knights and Companions as below. Its officers are the Prelate, Chancellor, Secretary, 
King of Arms, and Registrar : the Colonial Office is its Chancery, and there is now 
added a Chapel in St. Paul's Cathedral. 

The decorations are the Badge, Star, Collar, Ribbon, Mantle, and Chapeau. The Badge 
is white enamelled and resembling a Maltese Cross but with seven arms instead of four : 
on one side it represents the Archangel Michael encountering Satan, and on the other St. 
George and the Dragon ; around each of these designs is the motto " Auspicium melioris 
sevi " (The token of a better age) ; above the whole Badge is a crown attaching it to the 
Collar. The Star of a Knight Grand Cross consists of seven rays of silver spreading 
like the Badge, and with narrow ones of gold between, whilst in the centre is the 
figure of St. George with the motto, and the extremities of the four arms of a 
cross protruding from beneath, to halfway across the rays (unfortunately not clear 
in our illustration). That of Knights Commanders is smaller and of only four 
rays. The Collar is made up of crowned lions (the two in the front having wings), 
Maltese Crosses, and ciphers of the letters SM and SG, with a crown in the front 
centre slightly within the circle : all gold except the crosses, which are of white 
enamel. The Ribbon is of Saxon blue with a scarlet stripe, and is worn by the 
three Classes with the same variations as under the Bath. The Mantle and Chapeau are 
of blue satin lined with scarlet silk, the latter surmounted with white and black ostrich 
feathers. Knights Grand Cross are entitled to bear " supporters." The following are 
the designations (which accord with those of the Bath and the Royal Victorian Order 
in the use of the term " Grand Cross," whilst the two Indian Orders alone substitute 
" Grand Commanders "), also the statutory limits of each Class as extended in 1902, 
and not exceeded by more than a hundred in even the 3rd Class : 

1st Class, Knights Grand Cross Sir A.B., G.C.M.G. ...100 members. 

2nd Knights Commanders Sir A.B., K.C.M.G. ...300 „ 

3rd Companions The letters CM.G. ...000 

The Foreign Office may designate 30 of the 1st Class, 90 of the and, and 180 of the 3rd.

The Most Eminent Oeder of the Indian Empire. — The Order so entitled was 
instituted by her late Majesty on January 1, 1878, and for the purpose of commemorating 
"""" her proclamation in the previous year as Empress of India. It is awarded for a 
like purpose with the Order of the Star of India, thoiigh inferior to it in rank. In 
1886 it was enlarged, and again at the Jubilees of 1887 and 1897. It now coh- 
g.c.i.e. sists of the Sovereign, the Governor-General (as Grand Master), some members 
Badge. f the Royal Family, and the usual three Classes, besides extras, whilst there 
exists the special proviso that all Councillors of the Indian Empire are life Companions 
ex officio. Till 1887 it consisted of Companions only, but the two higher Classes were added 
in that year. Its officers are the Secretary (who is the Foreign Secretary of the Indian 
Government for the time being) and the Registrar. The decorations are the Badge, Star, 
Collar, Ribbon, and Mantle. The Badge, which is wholly of gold, has consisted of an open 
red rose with Queen Victoria's effigy in the centre surrounded by the motto "Imperatricis 
auspiciis" ("Under the auspices of the Empress" — at first it was "Victoria Impera- 
trix ") : above the rose is an Heraldic Crown connecting the Badge with a similar but 
larger crown in the Collar. The Star, for the First Class, has its centre like that of the 
Badge, but with the crown immediately surmounting, and is surrounded with alternate 
gold and silver rays ; for the Second C] ass these rays are all silver. The Collar, worn by the 
First Class only, is of gold, and is made up of the crown in front with a pair of chains 
linking together a series of elephants, peacocks, and lotus-flowers. The Ribbon is of 
imperial blue, and is worn with the same variations as under the Bath &c, Companions 
attaching the Badge by it to the left breast. The Mantle is of purple satin lined with 
white silk and fastened with purple silk and gold tassels : on its left a representation of 
the Star. Designations, with limits (ex- Viceroys being additional G.C.I.E.'s) :

2nd „ Knights Commanders Sir A. B., K.C.I. E. ...92 „ 

3rd „ Companions The letters CLE. ...unlimited. 

The CLE. appointments each year are limited to ao (40 in 1903) + vacancies through promotion (not death). 

The Royal Victorian Order.— This last of our Orders of Knighthood, which dates 
only from 1896, was designed as a recognition of personal services to Queen Victoria, 
but since her decease it has been enormously increased in numbers, and 
additions, in fact, are now made to it every few days. It had been anticipated, 
on the contrary, that it would now have been wholly closed ; but our present 
esteemed Monarch retains it under the nomenclature adopted by his mother, 
and it was her foible to connect herself in some way personally with every one 
of the many Orders or Decorations which she instituted. The Court Journal 
incidentally remarked that such had not been the practice of British Sovereigns 
before her; and the creations instituted by King Edward make it probable 
that such practice is now at an end. The Order under consideration comprises 
no fewer than five Classes, of which the 1st is to take precedence after G.C.I.E., the 2nd 
after K.C. I.E., the 3rd after Knights Bachelors, the 4th after CLE., and the 5th 
after D.S.O. It will thus be observed that a C.V.O., styled "Commander," is 
superior to a C.B. (at first he was superior even to a Knight Bachelor). Higher than all 
these classes there is the Victorian Chain, which is regularly restricted to the Royal 
Family and its connections abroad, but is also held by the Dukes of Argyll and Fife, 
the Marquess of Lansdowne, and Lord Curzon of Kedleston. The numerous 
foreign members are Honorary only. It had its appointed Anniversary on June 20, the 
day of her late Majesty's accession. Its officers are the Chancellor and the Secretary, 
who are respectively the Lord Chamberlain of the Household and the Keeper of 
the Privy Purse for the time being. The decorations are the Badge, Star, and 
Ribbon. The Badge, for the 1st Class, is a white enamelled Maltese Cross, with 
a crimson oval in the centre containing the royal and imperial cipher and the name 
"Victoria," all in gold letters, the name being surrounded by a blue circle surmounted 
by a crown ; for the 2nd and 3rd Classes it is similar but smaller, and for the 4th smaller 
still ; for the 5th it is the size of the 4th, but with the cross in frosted silver instead of 
white enamel. The Star for the 1st Class is silver chipped, with eight points, and having 
a smaller reproduction of the Badge in its centre ; for the 2nd Class it is in the form of a 
Maltese Cross in silver but with smaller rays, and having the reproduced Badge in 
frosted silver instead of enamel : it is not worn by the three lower Classes. The Ribbon 
is of dark blue with a narrow edging of three stripes — red, white, and red again ; for 
the 1st Class it is 3I ins. broad and worn from over the right shoulder to below the left 

6 4 


arm, having the Badge suspended to It ; for the 2nd and 3rd Classes it is if ins. broad 
and worn round the neck ; for the 4th and 5th it is i\ ills, broad and attached to the 
left breast. The numbers of all the Classes are unlimited, and the following are the 

designations :

The Royal Hanoverian Guelphic Order. — This Order, which ceased to be 
conferred in this country upon the death of William the Fourth, was instituted in 1815 
by the then Prince Regent to commemorate the establishment of Hanover as a Kingdom, 
and was formerly far more British than Hanoverian. It had its complete array of 
decorations, with the motto "Nec aspera terrent" (Nor do difficulties dismay us). The 
following are its designations with its only surviving British representatives : 

G.G.H. (Knight Grand Cross of Hanover)— H.R.H. the Duke of Cumberland. 
K.G.H. (Knight Commander of Hanover— last, Sir Woodbine Parish, who died 1881). 
K.H. (Knight of Hanover— corresponding to Companions and not entitled " Sir"). 
Baron von Pawel-Raramingen is the last of the K.H.'s in this country 

Knights Bachelor. — In strict terms these do not constitute an "Order," though 
the phrase "the Order of Knighthood " is used as including all Knights whatsoever. We 
j£v have mentioned under "General Remarks" that the more ancient class of 
^|§P Knights were known simply as "Knights, " or Equites Aurati ; it must be added 
^^P 8 that "Bachelors" [Milites Bmtihilarii) were at first not Knights at all, but seem 
to have stood much in the position of our modern "Companions." But by degrees, 
apparently through the greater lustre of the Knights of the Bath, these other two ranks 
came to be merged in their present compound title. It is usually held that the word 
"Bachelor" in this usage is a corruption of " bas chevalier," as implying a lower 
rank of Knights than those who received the honour under the royal banner; but 
perhaps, in accordance with the statement above, it should rather be interpreted as 
" lower than the Knight proper." Mention has been made of the systematic sale of 
this and other honours by James the First, who during the second year of his reign 
created 300 Knights. In the case of this degree he even outdid his achievements in the 
sale of Baronetcies, till we are told that a satirical placard was affixed to the door of 
St. Paul's Cathedral offering to teach a new art of memory to enable people to bear in 
mind the names of the newly-created title-bearers ; indeed, the King himself became so 
humiliated by his own doings that upon one occasion when the new Knight showed 
embarrassment at his own lack of prestige, James exclaimed, "Hold up your head, 
man, and spare your blushes; I have more cause to be ashamed than you have." A 
rather back-handed piece of consolation surely ! 

A few centuries earlier the Knight, like the Baron, was a part of the feudal system, 
and the possession of a Knight's fee or of a certain small amount of land not only gave a 
claim to but allowed no escape from the title. Still, though it might be a burden it was 
an honour usually sought with avidity. But when under the Stuarts the honour was 
degraded as above, while the ancient requirement to provide troops for the King was 
still maintained, the Knights-designate were often glad to second their tenants in the 
effort to obtain excuse from the promotion, submitting in its stead, the one to pay large 
sums of indemnity and the others to submit to special levies of taxation. In the treaty 
at Newport between Charles the First and his Parliament it was agreed that the King 
should receive in place of the knightly service a tax of ^100,000 a year upon the relieved 
lands ; and by the 12th of Charles the Second an excise on beer and other drinks was 
substituted and the service wholly abolished — the populace gladly accepting this burden 
in place of some sixty days per year for which they had hitherto been obliged to go with 
the troops. In 1904 the fees on the letters patent (^50) and on the warrant for the 
same {£10) were wholly abolished. 

The designation of a Knight Bachelor is the simple prefix Sir ; it is permissible to add 
" Knight "or " Kt.," but this is not usual except in formal style, and in any case K.B. 
should not be used, those letters (see page 60) being the old style for "Knight of the 
Bath." There is no decoration attached, and no limit to the numbers, also no officers, 
it not forming an Order. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland can create Knights Bachelor.

Oedek of Merit. — King Edward in June 1902 instituted this Order, which at 
present occupies a very anomalous position, conferring no precedence, and yet authorising 
the holders to place its designating initials next after those denoting member- 
ship 'of the Order of the Bath. It is designed as a very special distinction for 
men most eminent in any department whatever — war, science, literature, or art 
— without in itself conferring a knighthood, though it happens that of the 
twelve originally appointed, all but one were either a Peer, Knight, or Privy 
Councillor. The Order is limited in numbers to 24, with the addition of foreign 
Honorary Members, and its only Officer is the Secretary and Registrar, who is 
the Comptroller of the Lord Chamberlain's Department for the time being. 
The Badge is a species of cross of red and blue enamel, and its inner portion 
bears the words "For Merit" in gold letters within a laurel wreath, the reverse 
containing the royal and imperial cipher : in the cases of naval and military men 
two silver swords with gilt hilts are added, as shown in the cut. The whole is 
o.m. Civ. attached to an enamelled Heraldic Crown suspended by a broad ribbon of Garter- 
blue and crimson, and worn from the neck. The Secretary's badge has the substitution of 
two silver pens in the place of the swords. The Order has an anniversary day fixed 
for June 26 (that intended for the Coronation). Its designation is the letters O.M. 

The Distinguished Service Order.— In this also and some following Orders we may 
be said to have Knighthood without Knights, the members being Companions only. The 
present Order ranks immediately after the 4th Class of the Royal Victorian, 
the sequence of Companions &c. thus becoming — C.V.O., C.B., C.S.I., C.M.G., 
CLE., M.V.O. 4th Class, D.S.O., M.V.O. 5th Class. The Order under notice 
was instituted by her late Majesty in 1886, its purpose being the recognition 
of special services of commissioned officers in the Army and Navy. The Sovereign is at 
its head and its numbers are unlimited (now about 1650). Its Badge is a gold cross 
enamelled white, one side bearing an Heraldic Crown surrounded by a wreath of 
laurels (enamelled green upon a red enamelled ground) ; on the reverse side there is 
now the cipher ER VII within a similar wreath: this is worn attached to the left

Imperial Service Order. — King Edward, at his Coronation in August 1902, insti- 
tuted this Order. It is restricted to members of the administrative or clerical (clerk) 
branches of the Civil Service, and consists of the Sovereign, the Prince of 
Wales, and Companions (not exclusively male) to a number not exceeding 425, 
of whom 250 may belong to the Home Services and 175 to the Colonial. _ Those 
of the former class must, as a rule, have rendered 25 years of meritorious 
service, and those of the latter 16 ; but these rules are to be somewhat elastic, and even 
subject to alteration. Its officer, appointed by the Sovereign, is styled Secretary a-nd 
Registrar. The Badge is a medallion to be worn on the left breast, bearing on one side 
the royal cipher, and on the other the words, "For Faithful Service," the lettering 
being m dark blue enamel upon a shield of gold girt with a laurel wreath and sur- 
mounted by a crown. (The minor honour of the Imperial Service Medal, like the 
above, but of silver, is announced as designed for award to those who have served 
the full terms without displaying any particular merit.) Designation, the letters I.S.O. 
— We presume that this Order will eventually confer precedence next after the pre- 
ceding, but all those that follow are honours only and give no rank. 

The Royal Order op Victoria and Albert (for Ladies). — Instituted in 1862, and 
enlarged in 1864, 1865, and 1880. It comprises Her Majesty Queen Alexandra and four 
Classes, of which the First consists of Princesses of the Royal Family with some foreign 
Queens, the Second of Royal ladies less nearly connected with our Royal Family, and 
the Third and Fourth of ladies of the British nobility of higher or lower rank. Badge, 
in the first three Classes a medallion of Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort, differing 
in the width and jewelling of the border as the Classes descend, whilst the fourth 
substitutes a jewelled cipher. All four are surmounted by some form of a crown, 
which is attached to a bow of white moire ribbon. Designation, the letters Y.A. 

The Imperial Order op the Crown op India (for Ladies). — Instituted Jan. 1, 1878, 
and for a like purpose with the simultaneously created Order of the Indian Empire. It 
consists of her present Majesty with some Royal Princesses, and the female relatives of 
Indian Princes or of persons who have held conspicuous offices in connection with India. 




Badge, the royal cipher in jewels within an oval, surmounted by an Heraldic Crown 
and attached to a bow of light blue watered ribbon, edged white. Designation, the 
letters C.I. 

The Order of St. John of Jerusalem.— Though containing "Knights of Justice" 
and " of Grace," this Order is no more than an honorary title. Its Maltese prototype 
arose in the century of the Norman Conquest, and by about iioo it was established in 
England, making its headquarters the Priory of St. John in Clerkenwell, of which the 
ancient gateway still remains ; the Sisters of the Order were located at Bucklands in 
Somersetshire. It began as a voluntary confraternity for the relief of pilgrims to 
Jerusalem, and a similar object has all along been kept before it, its present English 
namesahe having offshoots such as the St. John Ambulance Association and the British 
Ophthalmic Hospital at J erusalem. A charter v/as granted to the British Order by Queen 
Victoria in 1888, its full title being therein given as "The Grand Priory of the Hospital 
of St. John of Jerusalem in England." Besides the above Knights it possesses 
Commanders, as well as Squires, Chaplains, Honorary Serving Brothers and Sisters, 
and Honorary Associates ; for its long string of officers we must refer to the Almanack. 
Its Badge is a Maltese Cross deeply cleft, with alternately a lien and a unicorn between 
the branches : it is of gold or silver according to the grade, and is worn suspended from 
a black watered silk ribbon. Its medal, with a device like that of the Badge upon one 
side and a sprig of St. John's wort upon the other, is conferred for acts of gallantry 
involving risk of life. The fraternity may be described as a Protestant analogue to the 
Roman Catholic Order known as "The Knights of Malta" (hence the Maltese Cross), 
it having long settled in that island after migrating from Jerusalem to Acre and thence 
to Rhodes ; but the two are absolutely unconnected. 

Military Knights of Windsor. — A small number of military officers, who have 
performed meritorious services but are not in a position suitably to maintain them- 
selves, arc granted a pension ranging from ^"50 to ^130 a year, together with apart- 
ments at Windsor Castle, from which they obtain the above designation, which, 
however, confers no more of a title than does a suite at Hampton Court upon a lady. 
Up till 1892 there was included the Order of Naval Knights of Windsor (begun 1797 under 
the will of S. Travers, Esq.), but these are now separated as the Travers Pension, which 
amounts to £7$ a year. The Order of Knights of Windsor has existed from 1349, 
having at first been composed of 26 veterans of Edward the Third. They thus 
constituted " The Poor Knights of the Order of the Garter " as it then was, and they 
continue to this day to be connected with it by various links. They are appointed by 
the Sovereign in his capacity as head of that Order. Till 1906 they formed part of an 
ecclesiastical college under its Registrar, the Dean of Windsor, but the control is now 
transferred to the Governor and Deputy-Governor of the Castle, whilst the Governor of 
the Order is now a superior officer, not one of the Knights. Their pay comes from the 
revenues of that college, and they wear its badge, whilst every K.G. has upon appoint- 
ment to contribute a sum of money for apportionment among them. Their uniform is that 
of the earlier part of last century, and was assigned them by William the Eourth, who 
prefixed the word ' ' Military " to their title. Under Charles the Eirst the numbers 
were fixed at thirteen for the Royal Foundation and five for the Lower. Queen 
Elizabeth drew "up the present code, under which members must reside at their 
quarters for nine months of the year, and must attend St. George's Chapel on 
Saints' Days, besides acting occasionally as guards of honour. Queen Victoria in 1870 
confirmed the previous statutes respecting them. 

The Victoria Cross (W(&) was instituted in 1856, on the close of the Crimean War, 
as a recognition of conspicuous acts of bravery in presence of the enemy displayed by 
either soldiers or sailors. It was designed primarily for the rank and hie and 
non-commissioned officers, but it is held also by all grades up to Field -Marshall 
and Admirals of the Elect, and was extended to civilians who had borne arms 
against the Indian mutineers ; the Militia also are now included if they have 
been serving under regular officers. Conjoined with the decoration is the confer- 
ment, upon non-commissioned officers and men, of a pension of .£10 per annum and an 
additional £$ for each Bar, as immediately to be explained; and what is still more, 
this £10 may lie increased to /50 (at the option of the Secretary for War or Eirst 
Lord of the Admiralty) in any cases where the recipients are unable to maintain 
themselves. The Badge consists in a cross-pattee of bronze, having in the centre 
an Imperial Crown, with a lion above if, and a scroll below bearing the words 



" For Valour." Any additional act of bravery is noted by a Bar being affixed to the 
ribbon from which the cross hangs, it being suspended to the left breast, whilst the 
ribbon is red for the Army and blue for the Navy. The cross is usually styled 
" Maltese," but this cannot be strictly correct, for its four arms are not cleft at the end3 
as they are in the decorations of the Bath, St. Michael and St. George, and the Royal 
Victorian ; crosses-pattee on the contrary, though very varied in form, are never cloven 
. at the ends. Though instituted in 1856, some of the original recipients are registered 
1 as from 1854, the date being always that of the act by which the honour was earned. 

The Conspicuous Service Cross (C.S.C.), instituted by King Edward in 1901, is also 
1 a decoration in reward of "distinguished service before the enemy," but is specially 
j designed for bestowal on Warrant Officers and subordinate officers in the Fleet who do 
! not hold commissions in the Navy. It consists of a silver cross with the reverse side 
I plain, but on the obverse the cipher ERI surmounted by an Imperial Crown. 

The Distinguished Conduct Medal, which has been very extensively awarded of 
j late, is a similar decoration, confined to the rank and file of the Army. Its equivalent 
iin the Navy is termed the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal. 

The Volunteer Officers' Decoration (V.D.) is an honour for rewarding the 
[ meritorious services of officers of the force in question, who must be or have been in 
I commission and have served twenty years, though a provision is made allowing half the 
I time spent in other military service to be counted in making up this term. Dishonour- 
I able conduct is to entail the erasure of the name and a publication of the fact in the 
Gazette. The Badge is an oak wreath in silver with the cipher EE and an Heraldic 
Crown in the centre ; it is suspended to the left breast by a green ribbon attached to a 
I silver oak bar-brooch. 

The Albert Medal dates from 1866, with extensions in 1867 and 1877, and is a 
I recognition of acts of gallantry performed by any person whatever. Its recipients are 
'. ranged in two Divisions, the one receiving a Badge inscribed "For Gallantry in Saving 
li Life at Sea," the other with the closing words varied to "on Land." Each Division has 
li now two Classes, the Badge of the one having a golden centre with a bronze garter 
around it, that of the other being wholly in bronze ; both are oval, and contain an 
Albert Crown and the cipher VA, to which in the Sea Division an anchor is added. 
I The suspending ribbon in this Division is of dark blue, with four white stripes in the 
' : First Class and two in the Second ; in the Land Division it is crimson with similar 
; white stripes. An added Bar records an additional act of gallantry. — Another 
!' "Albert Medal," not to be confused with this, is given by the Society of Arts. 

The Royal Red Cross (E. E.G.— for Ladies), founded 1883, is a distinction conferred 
upon ladies of any rank or position, whether subjects or foreigners, who may be brought 
to the Sovereign's notice for acts of mercy in attending to the sick or wounded in time of 
a war. It has the Queen and several Royal Princesses at its head. Badge, a cross-patte'e 
I enamelled crimson which has hitherto borne her late Majesty's effigy in the centre on 
one side, on the reverse the cipher VRI, and on the four arms respectively the words 
1 "Faith," "Hope," "Charity," "1883." The ribbon is dark blue edged red, tied in a 
bow and worn on the left shoulder. 

The Kaisar-i-Hind Medal (for either sex) was founded 1900, and is a reward for 
any person whatever who shall have rendered useful service in or for India : the First 
Class under sign manual from the Sovereign on recommendation by the Secretary of 
; State for India ; the Second as the granc of the Governor-General. The medal is an 
oval-shaped badge— in gold for the First Class and Silver for the Second— with the 
Royal cipher on one side, and on the reverse side the words " Kaisar-i-Hind— for 
Public Service in India." It is worn on the left breast, hung by a dark-blu® ribbon. 
Attached bars may be added for additional services. 

The Order of Mercy (both sexes) was established in 1899, with the King as its 
Sovereign, in connection with the League of Mercy, an institution also founded in 
I 1899 by Royal Charter to promote the welfare of Hospitals, by obtaining small sub- 
1 scriptions for King Edward's Hospital Fund for London, &c. The Order, which has 
1 been awarded to a number of officers and members of the League, is conferred by the 
' King as a reward for personal services only, which must have been gratuitously ren- 
: dered in connection with the relief of sickness, suffering, poverty, or distress. 
' It consists of a red cross surmounted by the Prince of Wales's feathers, and having; 

> 2 



in the centre a group of figures representing " Charity," by Sir Joshua Reynolds. The 
Prince and Princess of Wales are the Grand President and Lady Grand President of 
both League and Order ; the Hon. Secretaries are Lord W olverton, Sir William J. 
Collins, M.D., M.P., and Mr. J. Harrison, M.V.O. ; and the Treasurer is Sir Henry 
Burdett, K.C.B. Mr. E. W. Wallington, C.M.G., is Hon. Registrar of the Order, 
and the Secretary is Mr. Reginald G. Lund. 

The Cockade, in present English usage, is a distinction of office rather than of title, 
it being a head-dress which can legally be worn only by servants of royalty and of 
naval and military officers, diplomatists, and the lieutenants, deputy-lieutenants, and 
high sheriffs of counties. As worn by these its colour is black — circular with a 
projecting fan for military and semi-military men, and oval without fan for naval 
officers. Its introduction into England in these forms was due to the House of Hanover, 
those who adopted it signifying thereby their allegiance to that House ; but cockades of 
various colours had been here known long previous to their time. Under Charles the First 
there was a scarlet cockade, but under his son the colour was changed to white, and 
"the white cockade" became the badge of the Pretenders or Jacobites, as the orange 
was that of King William (in accord with his title "Prince of Orange," a small [ 
principality now belonging to France). At that date "to mount the cockade" 
implied simply "to become a soldier," the white or orange denoting the party. 
The latter is still the colour in Holland, whilst other European nations adopt a 
large variety of hues, as is shown occasionally in the streets of London in the foreign 
liveries of carriage attendants — black and white for Prussia; black, white, and red for 
Germany ; black and yellow for Austria ; blue and white for Bavaria ; the tricolour for | 
France ; scarlet for Spain ; blue and white for Portugal ; and black, red, and yellow 
for Belgium. The word was borrowed from the French cocarde, having originally been 
applied to the plumes of cocks' feathers worn by Croatian soldiers serving in the 
French army. Some such a plume, or in its place a bunch of ribbons, came to be used 
in pinning up the flaps of the hat into a cocked position, and thus gradually the word 
passed for the name of the " cocked" hat itself. (This paragraph is mainly based upon \ 
an article by Mr. F. Lee Carter in the Genealogical Magazine for June 1899.) 



The large number of native Indian Knights which our work comprises renders it ! 
desirable that some explanation of their titles as well as of their names should be!] 
supplied to English readers. For that which we here present, as also for a considerable 
amount of rearrangement in the Dikectory, we are indebted in the first place toj 
Messrs. James and Horace Wilson, of Sheffield, but formerly of Calcutta, the one as I 
proprietor and editor of the Indian Daily Neivs, and the other as a practising barrister j 
in the Supreme Court. Their generous help has been supplemented and greatly] 
extended by the kindness of Maj.-Gen. Sir Owen T. Burne, G.C.I.E. ; and for some) 
additions we are indebted to Sir Roper Lethbridge's admirable compilation ' The l|' 
Golden Book of India.' 

Taking up the names first, the chief perplexity lies in their variety of systems, or p 
rather sometimes their want of system. To a very large extent we find what! 
correspond exactly to our own repertory of Christian names, but these are far 
more widely chosen than with ourselves, so that not unfrequently a man has to be 
entered under the first of his names, be it "Christian" name or not. " In Bengal,"' 
says our informant, " a Hindu generally has three names, just as the old Roman had 
his prcenomen, nomen, and cognomen. The first would be the personal name (' Christian'! 
name), the second a descriptive or caste name, the third a family name." Thus the} 
order would differ from the Roman, in which, for instance, " Marcus Tullius Cicero "1 
has the family name in the second place. Others have but two names, and many of the! 
Marwaris only one, as Dedraj or Mulchand. The Mohammedans are very irregular, 
"some seeming to have no family name at all, as Khadia Bux = 'the gift of God;'"; 
to which may be appended the range of variations from the lengthy ' Abdul Fayal 
Muhammad Abdur Rahman " to the single name " Buddhu." 

Turning to the titles, we are speedily staggered by their multiplicity. Here again we 
find a difference of nomenclature between the titles of Hindus and those of Moham- 
medans, the highest in rank with the former being Maharaja and with the latter Nawab,! 
with the exception of the one still higher potentate termed the Nizam. Some titles are 

Native Eastern Names and Titles. 


; hereditary and represent ruling chiefs or those nominally such (and of theSe fhf r<3 are 
no less than some 620) ; others are personal honours conferred on individuals by our 
I Indian Government, and even then sometimes made hereditary* It must be added 
; that though taste is often figuring in the names it has nothing whatever to do with 
: the titles. Amir, Khan, &c, are confusingly used as both titles and names. 

Ahluwalia—Trinoe, head of a princely family. 
I Akhundzada — son of a head officer. 

j Amir (corruptly Emir)— -a Mohammedan Chief, a man of high rank ; also often a personal nanle» 
Baba or Babu — lit. " father ; " a respectful " Mr. ; " Irish " Your Honour." 

Bahadur — lit. " noble," or " warrior : " a title much valued by Mohammedans and often bestowed by 
Government ; added to other titles it = " Hon.," but if alone it may designate a petty ruler. 
j( Bakhshi — a Revenue Officer or Magistrate. 

Begum — feminine of " Nawab," combined as " Nawab Begum" in Bhopal. 

Besar— understood to mean a large land-owner. 

Bhup—a, sovereign or king (used in one locality only). 

Chhatrapati— implying one who has an umbrella carried over him. 

Dada— lit. " grandfather " (paternal): any venerable person. 

Deb— a, Brahminieal priestly title ; it is the name of a divinity. 
|i Dhiraj—" Lord of the Lands " (comp. " Besar "). 

Diwan—& First Minister to a native Mohammedan prince, a Vizier ; also a Council of State. 

Gaekwar or Guicowar — title of the ruler of Baroda, with " Maharaja " added (Hindu); it was once a 
caste name, and means " cowherd," implying, the protector of the sacred animal. 

Kazi — a Judge. 

Khan— orig. the ruler of a small Mohammedan State, now a prized but nearly empty title, and very 

commonly used as a name, especially as an adjunct to Afghan or Pathan names. 
• Kunwar or Kumar — heir to a title, son of a Raja. 

' Lokindra — " Protector of the "World," title of the Chiefs of Dholpur and Duttia. 

ii Maharaja— the highest of hereditary rulers among the Hindus, or else a personal distinction con- 
ferred by Government. Maharaj Dhiraj, Lord Paramount; Maharana and Mahai'ao are 
merely variants of Maharaja, of which Maharani is the feminine (maha — great). 

I Mian— like the Scottish " Master " (son of a Rajput Prince). 

I Mir — a chief or leader, an inferior title which, like " Khan," has grown into a name. 
I Mirza— if prefixed, " Mr. ; " if following, " Prince." 
Moulvi — a learned man or teacher, 
jl Mudeliar — " Steward of the Lands." 
|i Myowun — "Mr." 

j 1 Nawab— orig. a Viceroy under the Mogul Government ; the title of a Mohammedan prince, inferior 

only to " Nizam ; " also a Government bestowal on men of high rank. 
I Nizam — the title of the ruler of Hyderabad, the leading Mohammedan prince in India. 
|' Pandit or Pundit — a learned man. 
Raja — a Prince, a title given largely to Hindus of rank, similar to "Maharaja" but lower. It has 

the similar variations Raj, Rana, and Rao, also the feminine Rani. 
Rani — Queen. 

i Saheb— the native Hindu term used to or of a European ("Mr. Smith" would be mentioned as 
" Smith Saheb," and his wife " Smith Mem-Saheb, but in addressing it would be " Saheb," 
fern. " Saheba," without the name) ; occasionally appended to a title in the same way as 
" Bahadur," but inferior ( = master). The unusual combination " Nawab Saheb " implies a 
mixed population of Hindus and Mohammedans. 

j Sahibzada— son of a person of consequence. 

j Said, Sayid, Saiyid, Sidi, Syed, Syud—v&,vious forms for a title adopted by those who claim direct 
male descent from Mohammed's grandson Husain. 
Sawai—& Hindu title implying a slight distinction (lit. one-fourth better than others), 
j Sawbwa — a chief. 
yShahzada — son of a Prince. 

; Sirdar (properly Sardar)—& leading Government official entrusted with either the civil or military or 
both departments of the State ; a chief or head man, or even a Grand Vizier. 

Sri or Shrv— lit. fortune, wealth : a Sanscrit term used by Hindus in speaking of a person whom they 
regard with special respect (never addressed to him) ; used also of divinities. The two forms 
of spelling are occasioned by the intermediate sound of the s (that of s in the German Stadt). 

Sultan — Prince. 

Talpur— the name of a dynasty in Sind. 

Thakur— an equivalent to " Raja," and also Hindu ; used locally in Central and N.W. India. 
Zemindar— a landowner. 


Most of the following have been kindly supplied us by the Earl of Cromer : 
Emi) — see "Amir" of previous list, 
j Ferik — a Vice-Admiral. 

[ Ghaly—a. word meaning " costly," but it is a proper name in " Boutros Ghaly Pacha." 
Kaid— used in Barbary of a high military or civil official ; in Tunis, a Governor of a province. 
Mudir — a Governor of a province, or sometimes a director of a State Administration. 
Taver — an A.D.C., but it is a proper name in " Mustapha Yaver Pacha." 



The English College of Arms, or the Heralds' College, is a corporate body originally 
established by Richard the Third. Its officers are appointed on the nomination of the 
Earl Marshal, whose office is hereditary in the line of the Duke of Norfolk ; their only 
remuneration, beyond a nominal one, consists in the fees which they receive from 
private practice, though one Herald and one Pursuivant are regularly in attendance 
at the office. The Officers of Arms of Scotland and Ireland, on the contrary, are now 
immediately under Government instead of forming corporations ; they are in no degree 
connected with either the Earl Marshal or Garter. The duty of the various Offices is 
to attend to all matters of pedigrees, honours, and precedence ; and to arrange all state 
ceremonies in their respective countries. The rank of the three English Kings remains 
invariably in the order given below, but that of the Heralds and Pursuivants changes 
with personal seniority. 

Tho three grades of Kings, Heralds, and Pursuivants are all attired officially in the 
tabard or sleeveless coat — that of the Kings being of embroidered silk velvet, that of 
the Heralds satin, and of the Pursuivants figured silk damask. The Kings of Arms are 
further distinguished by crowns of silver gilt figured with sixteen oak-leaves, and they 
wear gold collars of SS., which perhaps means " Spiritus Sanctus," but this, one of the 
Kings tells us, is "hotly controverted " (the term occurs in Shakespeare's ' Henry VIII.,' 
Act iv., Scene i.) ; they are assigned official arms to impale with their own (for Garter 
see further under that Order). The Heralds have similar collars, but of silver ; their 
designation is solely in connection with "heraldry," the trumpeters attending them 
upon state ceremonies whenever the more ordinary function of a "herald" has to be

Precedence. 7 1 


The relative positions of the various grades have formed the subject of legal enact- 
ments from a very early period, the first apparently having been decreed in the reign of 
Edward the Third in the year 1339. After this we meet with a statute passed under 
Henry the Seventh, and a more important one in the 31st year of Henry the Eighth, 
which has since been looked upon as the primary authority on the subject, though it was 
little more than a conferring of legal force upon the practices then current. Several 
acts of less account have followed, mostly in reference to questions of special controversy 
or doubt. Many striking omissions occur in the table, there being no recognition of Colo- 
nial Governors, military or naval commanders, or of the sons of Peers' eldest sons, whilst 
till December 1905 the office of Prime Minister was absent. Hereditary precedence 
as a rule comes only through a father, but a Peeress in her own right can confer it upon her 
offspring. Men possessing two claims to precedence, a personal and an official one, will 
be ranked according to whichever of these is the higher : yet this preference of the 
higher is not the invariable system, for if the son of a Duke, for instance, is summoned 
to the House of Lords in a Barony of his father's his rank forthwith sinks to that 
of a Baron ; and similarly if an Irish Peer becomes a Member of Parliament it will 
be only in the latter capacity that he will be summoned to a Coronation. ^ The children 
of a living Peer or Baronet rank before those of his predecessor, as they themselves will 
have the prior claim to succeed. A dignity which is exclusively official — as that of the 
Spiritual Peers and the Scottish Lords of Session— confers no precedence whatever upon 
the children, but those of a Life Peer now rank as only one degree lower than the 
younger sons of other Barons. No foreign title confers any precedence in England, 
but veritable Ambassadors rank before all except the lloyal Family, whilst Envoys and 
Foreign Ministers have latterly been placed, ' Burke ' tells us, between Dukes and 
Marquesses. Foreign Sovereigns visiting England would rank after our own King in 
order of seniority of accession alone, whether Emperors, Kings, or Presidents.

Knights of the Thistle and St, Patrick are wholly overlooked (Burke now inserts the 
latter next after the Garter), but as they are invariably of some other high rank the 
omission is of no practical consequence. We have omitted not only these, but also three 
or four offices which are now non-existent. In University Precedence we have Doctors 
(in the order— D.D., D.C.L. or LL.D., M.D., Mus. D., D. Litt., D. Sc.), Bachelors of 
the same faculties, then Masters of Arts, and lastly Bachelors of Arts. For Relative 
Ranks of Army and Navy, see the Almanack. The order of Legal Precedence is, for 
the highest officials, given under the general list above ; but for the remaining 
classes we must append the following after " Judges of the High Court : " 

Judge Advocate-General. 
Lord Advocate of Scotland. 

King's Counsel. 
Recorder of London. 
Common Serjeant of London. 
Attorney-General of Duchy of Lancaster. 

Masters in Chancery 
Masters in Lunacy. 
Doctors of Civil Law. 
Barristers with patents of precedence.

Similarly for Clerical Precedence we must add after " Irish Bishops :" 

Rectors of degree D.D. 

Other Rectors. 
Vicars of degree D.D. 
Other Vicars. 

Bishop of Sodor and Man. 
Scottish Bishops. 
Colonial Bishops. 
Bishop? Suffragan, Retired, Assistant, and

Precedence among Ladies. 

As a first general rule the rank of ladies is that of their husbands if married and of 
their eldest brothers if single ; but there are many special instances. Our section upon 
the Marriage of Peeresses and Others, now placed under the heading " Nomenclature of 
Peers' Relatives," comprehends much that is applicable to our subject here. In par- 
ticular, we may here repeat that whilst the eldest son of a Peer takes rank, say, as a 
Duke's son quite irrespective of his courtesy-title as Marquess, Earl, or Lord, the 
married daughter of a Peer may either retain a higher rank of her own by adhering to 
her former style, or take that of her husband by conforming to his. It must be added 
that the wife of an eldest son takes precedence over all daughters, but these in their turn 
have priority over the wives of younger sons. A dowager lady again (not necessarily 
so styled, see page 74) ranks higher than the wife of the living Peer or Baronet, be- 
cause, whilst neither can possibly succeed to the title, the elder comes the nearer to the 
original holder — a rule thus resulting which is the opposite to that observed in the cases 
of children, wherein those of the living Peer or Baronet take precedence on account of 
nearness to the future succession. _ The mere official rank of the husband as a rule 
confers no dignity whatever upon his wife ; but even here there are exceptions in cases 
where the wives have a species of public duties to perform, as those of a Lady Mayoress 
and the wife of a Lord Lieutenant of L eland. The following is the order observed : 

The Queen. 
The Princess of Wales. 
Sovereign's daughters. 
Wives of Sovereign's younger sons. 
Sovereign's granddaughters.* 
■Wives of Sovereign's grandsons.

Local Precedence. 

There is little of a general character that need here be noted. The person highest in 
rank in a county is the Lord Lieutenant, after whom comes the High Sheriff. In 
the City of London the order is — Lord Mayor (on City state occasions he ranks next 
to the Sovereign; in the County of London the Duke of Fife, as Lord Lieutenant, 
would have pre-eminence), Past Lord Mayors, Recorder, Aldermen not passed the 
Chair, Sheriffs, _ Chamberlain, Town Clerk, Common Serjeant, Comptroller, Remem- 
brancer (no position is yet assigned to the new office of Lieutenant, of which there are 
not far short of four hundred holders). In other corporate towns we have the Mayor 
first unless there is a High Steward, then the Recorder, Sheriff, and Aldermen. At 
Oxford and Cambridge the Sheriff take3 precedence of the Vice- Chancellor.

»** For Conclusions of Letters see near the end of section. 

Admiral. — The title and name only, any other 
ascription following- the office thus : " Vice- 
Admiral Lord A.," " Rear- Admiral the Earl of 
C." (or "the Eon. C. D."}. So with other Naval 
and Ililitary Officers, q.v. 

Alderman. — If of London, and having passed 
the chair, officially addressed " Eight Worship- 
ful ; " in all other cases " "Worshipful." 

Ambassador. — "Your Excellency" (but a 
Duke "Your Grace "); " His Excellency Sir Y. Z., 
H.B.M.'s Ambassador Extraordinary and Pleni- 
potentiary to the Court of B." (but see Envoy 
or Minister for any lower rank). Wife, no title. 

Archbishop.— "My Lord Archbishop," "Your 
Grace," " His Grace the Lord Archbishop of C. ;" 
in formal addresses " The Most Eeverend Father 
in God, John, by Divine Providence, Archbishop 
of Canterbury ; " elsewhere, "by Divine Permis- 
sion." (The Abp. of Armagh is in Ireland styled 
"His Grace the Lord Priniate of All Ireland.") 
Wife, no title (nor precedence) . 

Archdeacon. — "Venerable Sir," "Sir" (in 
repeating), "The Venerable A. B.," or "The 
Venerable the Archdeacon of C." (not when 
retired) . 

Baron. — " My Lord," " Your Lordship," " The 
Eight Hon. Lord A." Baroness, "Madam," 
"Your Ladyship," "The Eight Hon. Lady A." 
(but "Baroness A." if the title is inher own right). 
The term "My Lady" is relegated to servants, 
and even " The Eight Hon." is usually cut down 
to " The Lady A." (no Christian name), the word 
" The " being understood as a substitute for " Et. 
Hon." and distinguishing a Baron's Lady or the 
daughter of a Peer from the wife of a Baronet or 
Knight. See also at end of Duke. Son or 
daughter, " Sir," or " Madam," " The Hon. C. D." 
Son's wife, " The Hon. Mrs. D." (of eldest son of 
present Peer) or "The Hon. Mrs. John D.," 
unless her own rank is higher, in which case attend 
to Note on " Marriage of Peeresses," at pp. 25-7. 

Baronet.— " Sir" ("Dear Sir Thomas" is 
rather too familiar to be used by inferiors), " Sir 
T. A., Baronet" (" Et." preferred to "Bart."). 
Wife, "Madam," " Your Ladyship," "Lady A." 
(without any Christian name unless she is a Lady 
by birth, as daughter of a Duke, Marquess, or 
Earl, in which case "The Lady Mary A. ; " if 
daughter of a Viscount or Baron, "The Hon. 
Lady A.;" otherwise "Lady A." without 
"The"— see preceding paragraph). For widow, 
see under Dowager Ladies. Son or daughter as 

Bishop.— "My Lord," "Your Lordship," " The 
Eight Eeverend the Lord Bishop of D. ;"formally, 
" The Eight Eeverend Father in God, John, by 
Divine Permission Lord Bishop of D." Wife as 
a commoner. Colonial, Bps. the same, and so also 
by courtesy Bishops Suffragan, and Irish, Scottish, 
American, and even Missionary Bps., unless they 
are known to object to the word "Lord" (this 
word requires address by the diocese and not the 
surname). Retired Bishop, " The Eight Eeverend 
Bishop A." (the surname), but "My Lord." 
The Bishop of Meath takes the style of " Most 
Eeverend," and so all Irish Bcman Catholic 

Canon,— "Eeverend Sir," "Sir" (in repeating) , 
"The Eeverend Canon B.'' 

Cardinal.— " Your Eminence," "His Eminence 
Cardinal B." (or " H. E. Joseph, Cardinal B."). 

Clergymen.— " Eeverend Sir," "Sir," "The 
Eev. E. F.," "The Eev. Lord F." If an 
" Honourable," " The Eev. the Hon." (so " Eight 
Eev. the Hon.," " Eev. Canon the Hon."), better 
than "Hon. and Eev.," though this latter form 
is far more common, even among those in a 
position supposed to know. In the Gazette we 
sometimes find the form "The Eev. and Hon." 

Companions oe Knighthood. —No distinc- 
tion : " E. F., Esq., C.B." So with a C.V.O. 

Consul. — "B. C.,Esq., H.B.M.'s Consul at D." 

Countess. — See Earl. 

Courtesy Lords. — Eldest sons of Dukes, Mar- 
quesses, and Earls, precisely as if their own title 
was that of an actual Peerage. For other sons, 
see under Dulce &c. 

Dean.— "Very Eeverend Sir," "Mr. Dean," 
" Sir " (in repeating), " The Very Eev. the Dean 
of B." But a Dean ought not to be addressed as 
Dean with his surname. 

Divorced Lady. — In her maiden name, but 
with " Mrs." instead of " Miss" (no retention of 
any former title whether claimed or not). If 
divorced on her own petition the presumption 
would seem to be that she would be eager to be 
quit of the obnoxious name ; but in spite of its 
gross inconsistency the retention appears to be 
the more customary course, and that even when 
merely the surname and not an actual title 
is concerned. -Of course no such title would be 
recognised at Court, but the recent Cowley case 
has elicited a judgment from the House of Lords 
that, while such assumption can have no legal 
right, its conventional adoption cannot be inter- 
fered with by a Court of Law, and can only be 
dealt with by the Committee of Privileges. See 
further under " Divorcees " on p. 27. 

Dowager Ladies. — Directions for the correct 
use of the term " Dowager " or its substitute will 
be found under "Peers' Widows" on page 27. 
The forms of address will then be such as "The 
Most Hon. Maria, Marchioness of A.," " The 
Eight Hon. the Dowager Lady B.," " Her Grace 
the Dowager Duchess of C," or with a Baronetess, 
"The Dowager Lady D." (the article here seems 
indispensable and does not do duty for " Et. 
Hon.," as in the case cited under Baron), 
or "Emily, Lady E." A Knight's widow suffers 
no change of title, for there can be neither 
Dowagers nor confusion between mother and 
wife where there is no hereditary succes- 
sion ; still (as stated p. 23) a Christian name can 
be prefixed to "Lady" when there are more 
than one of the same surname. There appears to 
be no settled practice as to whether the word 
" Dowager" shall precede or follow the essential 
term of honour. We venture to recommend that 
it should follow when the name or title is not 
expressed (as "the Duchess Dowager," "The 
Lady Dowager"), but precede when that title is 
given (as "The Dowager Duchess of A.," "The 
Dowager Countess of [or "Lady"] B."). 
We once even met with an advertisement com- 
mencing " Dowager the Lady H. will gladly," &c. | 


Duke. — "My Lord Duke," "Your Grace," 
" His Grace [or " The Most Noble"] the Duke of 
A. ; " formally, " My Lord Duke, May it please 
YourGrace." Duchess, "Madam," " YourGrace," 
"Her Grace the Duchess of A." For xvidow, see 
under Dowager Ladies. Eldest son and his wife 
addressed by the courtesy-title, and precisely as if 
it was a genuine Marquessate or Earldom as the 
style may be (for the children of these, see under 
"Courtesy Titles," p. 24, and again address pre- 
cisely as if their father was an actual Marquess 
or Earl). Younger son, "My Lord," "Your 
Lordship," " The Lord Henry C." Daughter, 
"Madam," "Your Ladyship," "The Lady 
Sophia C. ; " so younger son's wife, but "The 
Lady Henry C," unless herself a Duke's 
daughter, when "The Lady Sophia" will again 
be correct. Eor the status of married daughters of 
Dukes and other Peers, see art. on pp. 25-7. The 
prefix " Eight Honourable " is by courtesy 
assigned to younger sons and all daughters of 
Dukes and Marquesses, and to the daughters of 
Earls {i.e., to those taking the title "Lord" or 
"Lady"), but it is seldom used in any of these 
cases; the substitution of "The" is, however, 
imperative, but still only by courtesy. 

Earl.— "My Lord," "Your Lordship," "The 
Right Hon. the Earl of A." Countess accordingly, 
but see Baroness. Eldest son and any daughter as 
under Duke (with necessary conformation) ; 
younger son as Baron's son. 

Emperok. — " Sire," " Your Imperial Majesty." 

Envoy.— "A.B., Esq., H.B.M.'s Envoy Extra- 
ordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at the 
Court of B." 

General.— See Admiral. 

Governor of a Colony. — " His Excellency Sir 
A. B., the Governor of D." (if a Duke "His 
Grace"); " His Excellency Governor B." Wife, 
"Her Excellency" (if she resides in the Colony). 

Irish Ancient Title-holder. — Titles like 
" The O'Donoghue " are complete without " Mr." 
or "Esq." "Wives are addressed as " Madam." 

Judge of a County Court and of City of 
London Court.—" Sir," "Your Honour" (on the 
bench), " His Honour Judge A." (but not after 
retirement) . 

Judge of Superior Court. — " Sir," "My 
Lord" (on bench), "The Hon. (Sir) Henry B." 
(not after retirement). If a Peer, address as such. 

Justice of the Peace. — Officially, "Your 
Worship," " The Worshipful." 

King.— "Your Majesty," "The King's Most 
Excellent Majesty." Commence "Sire," or, 
" May it please Your Majesty." 

King's Counsel.— "A. B., Esq., K.C." 

Knight.— As Baronet, substituting for "Bt." 
the correct initials, and if a Knight Bachelor, 
omitting any affix, though " Knight " is appended 
in formal style. Wife also as Baronet's. Eor a 
widow, see under Dowager Ladies. 

Knight of the Garter, Thistle, or St. 
Patrick.— A Peer bearing either of these titles 
should have the respective initials appended to 
his name— in fact, the initals of any Order. 

Lord Advocate. — " Sir," " The Bight Honour- 

Lord of Appeal. — As other Barons. So wife, 
and now so children also. 

Lord Chancellor. — "My Lord," "Your 
Lordship," "The Bight Hon. the Lord High 

Lord Chief Justice. — Similarly, but "The 
Rt. Eon. the Lord Chief Justice of England." 

Lord High Commissioner (Scotland) .—" Your 
Grace," "His Grace the Lord High Commis- 
sioner of the General Assembly of the Church of 

Lord Justice of Appeal. — "My Lord," 
"Sir," "The Bight Hon. Lord Justice E." (or 
"Sir William E.").— Distinguish "Lord of Ap- 

Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. — "His Excel- 
lency ["Grace," if a Duke] the Lord Lieutenant," 
and according to rank. Wife, " Her Excellency " 
(see "Precedence among Ladies"). 

Lord Mayor. — "My Lord," " Your Lordship," 
"The Bight Hon. the Lord Mayor of B." (no 
distinction retained after retiring). Wife, "The 
Bight Eon. the Lady Mayoress," and as Baroness. 

Lord Provost.— " My Lord ; " in Edinburgh, 
" The Bight Hon. the Lord Provost ; " in 
Glasgow &c, " The Hon." Wife as commoner. 

Lord of Session (Scotland). — "My Lord," 
"Your Lordship," "The Hon. Lord A." Wife, 
" Madam," " Your Ladyship," " Lady A." 

Magistrate. — See J ustice. 

Maid of Honour. — "Madam," "The Hon. 
Alice B." (not "Hon. Miss"). 

Maltese Noble (of any rank). — "My Lord," 
"Your Lordship" or "Ladyship," "The Most 
Noble the Baron B." 

Marquess. — "My Lord Marquess," "My 
Lord," "Your Lordship," "The Most Hon. the 
Marquess of A." (avoiding the common error of 
" Most Noble ") . 3farchioness, " Madam," " Your 
Ladyship," "The Most Hon.," &c. Sons &c, 
see under Duke, treating the heir's title as a 
genuine Earldom or Viscounty.

and as Barons' sons. Wife, " The Hon. Mrs. A."

such beyond the letters "M.P.," which follow 
"Esq.," "Bt.," &c, when these occur. 

Minister Abroad. — "Sir," "A. B., Esq., 
H.B.M.'s Minister" (or "Minister Resident"). 
See Ambassadors and Envoy. 

Moderator of General Assembly (Scotland). 
—"Bight Beverend Sir," "The Right Reve- 

Officers, Naval and Military. — See under 
Admiral. Lieutenants in the Army and Sub- 
Lieutenants in the Navy are addressed as 
"Esquire," affixing R.A., R.E., R.N., &c, when 
correct. When the prefix "Honourable " occurs 
there is not even in practice the same licence as 
under Clergymen, but the arrangement must be 
"Capt. the Hon.," as "Hon. Capt." implies 
" Honorary Captain." 

Premier. — According to rank, adding after the 
name, " Head of His Majesty's Government." 

Primus of Episcopalian Church (Scotland).— 
" Most Reverend Sir," " The Most Reverend the 
Lord Bishop of C." (or " Most Rev. Bishop A.").

* The common form " Czarina " has no warrant in Russian. As to the cz or ts, the latter precisely represents the 
original, and now that it is coming so largely into use it is certainly far preferable : the form " czar " is used by the 
French, perhaps borrowed by them from the Hungarian, in which tongue alone cz has the sound of is. It may 
here be added in reference to " Fedorovna" that the termination -vna implies " daughter of" just as -vitch implies 
''son of," the "Fedor" (not "Feodor," which is the German form) here being the regular Russian equivalent to 
'Friedrich," that name of the father having been preferred to the'preceding "Ludwig," the corresponding form 
bo which would have been "Ludovic." As to the use of v or w in transliterating from Russian characters, the v is 
iorrect for English use and w only for German. 

t In the ' Almanach de Gotha' " Holstein" is the leading word and the entire house is arranged under the 
livisions " Holstein-Sonderburg " and " Holstein-Gottorp," the former Deing subdivided into the branches 
' Schles. -Hoist. -Sond.-Augustenburg " and " Scales. -Holst.-Sond.-Gliicksburg : " all under the heading "Holstein."

*#* There is an unavoidable imperfection in the following index, consisting in the fact that the generality of 
royal personages possess each a long string of names from which it is often impossible to select with certainty 
the one or two which are conventionally used. When, however, a name is found cited under some variation- 
say, if Prince Adalbert of Prussia is termed " Prince Berengar "—a reference to " Prussia" would conduct the 
s jarcher to the only possible houses under which the name could stand. The employment of parentheses commonly 
marks a junior member of a family: thus in this same instance we have to read "Prince Adalbert of Prussia" 
and not "Adalbert Prince of Prussia." German names are usually anglicised in the index, whilst French 
names are allowed to retain their native forms.

Total number of Queen Victoria's Descendants 50 



The rules furnished earlier on, with reference to the Descent of the Nobility, will enable any 
person to draw up for himself as long a list of heirs to the Throne as he may desire, the only 
difference to be observed being that daughters are eligible for succession in order of their own 
seniority, but not till after the youngest of the sons. Thus after the Princt; of Wales and his Uve 
sons would come his daughter ; then, as he has no brother, his sisters, with the children ot tne 
eldest in preference to the second sister ; then the second daughter of the late Duke of Saxe-Coburg, 
his eldest daughter, now the Crown Princess of Roumania, having formally renounced on her 
marriage all possibility of claim to the British Throne. After traversing the Saxe-Coburg branch, 
we treat similarly those of Connaught and Albany. Having thus exhausted the families ot all her 
late Majesty's sons we turn to her daughters, beginning with the house of the late Empress ireaeric, 
and thus, just beyond the 20th on the list, we arrive at the German Emperor, and at tins point it 
may well appear that the investigation has gone far enough. It may, however, be worth noting that 
granddaughters who are descended from sons will by the above law take precedence ot daughters 
even if these are older than those sons (the daughter of the latf Duke of Albany ramnng prior to 
the line of the late Empress Frederic), as well as precedence of such sons as are not older. Compare 
her late Majesty's succession in preference to the Duke of Cumberland.

Observations on Genealogical Table. 95 


It will at Cnee be noticed that the Hanover Line is here exhibited by thick lines, arid that of 
Saxe-Coburg by thin ones. Directing our attention to the former, we observe in the ist and 3rd 
places two sons who became well known to us as Sovereigns, and in the second place Frederick Duke 
of York, who died in 1827. In the 4th place comes a daughter, Ohaiiotte Princess Royal, who must 
be carefully distinguished from the better-known Princess of that name, the only child of George IV. 
and first consort of King Leopold L, whose death in childbirth (1817) caused such general regret. 
Next in order comes the Duke of Kent, then two more daughters, the Princesses Augusta and Eliza- 
beth, then the Dukes of Cumberland, Sussex, and Cambridge, and lastly the Princesses Mary, Sophia, 
and Elizabeth, and the infant Princes Octavius and Alfred. To avoid overcrowding we have had to 
omit these five names from the table as well as those of the before-mentioned daughters. 

Turning to the line of Saxe-Coburg, we note at its head H.S.H. Frederick Anthony, Reigning 
Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Saalfeld from 1800 till his death in 1806. He was succeeded by his eldest 
son, Ernest Frederick Anthony, Duke Ernest I. of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, this latter Principality 
having been acquired by a family compact, while Saalfeld was passed over to Saxe-Meiningen. The 
Duke died in 1844 an( i was followed by the elder of his two sons, Ernest Augustus Charles, Duke 
Ernest IT., the younger son being Albert, the late lamented Prince Consort. The second Duke 
Ernest died in 1893 and was succeeded by his nephew H.E.H. the late Duke of Edinburgh, and 
he in turn by his nephew the Duke of Albany. As elsewhere notified, the succession would 
naturally have fallen to the Prince of Wales (now King Edward VII. ) as eldest son of the Prince 
Consort, the preceding Duke's brother ; but His Eoyal Highness, as heir to the English throne, 
had formally renounced his claim in 1863. 

Returning to Duke Francis, we note his two eldest daughters, who became respectively the Countess 
of Mensdorff-Pouilly and Duchess Alexander of "Wiirtemberg ; then his 2nd son, Duke Ferdinand, 
whose own eldest son became Regent of Portugal, whilst the 2nd married a Princess of the Bourbon- 
Orleans House, and a daughter became Duchess of Nemours. Some of the descendants of these 
returned by marriage to Saxe-Coburg or passed to Saxony, Hohenzollem, Bavaria, or Austria, which 
States, with the already noted Belgium, "Wiirtemberg, Portugal, France, and others that might 
be added, including Baden, Hesse, Leiningen, Mecklenburg, Hanover, Tuscany, Naples, Greece, 
Bulgaria, Eoumania, Eussia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, and Norway, make up 
very considerably the larger portion of Europe for the regions into which our present Eoyal Family 
has spread or from which its alliances have been drawn. 

Duke Francis's 3rd and 7th children were two Princesses whose names are wholly omitted in the 
table : the former, Princess Juliana, married the Grand Duke Constantine of Eussia, but after twenty- 
four years the marriage was dissolved in 1820 and the Princess died without issue in i860 ; the 7th 
child, the Princess Marianne, died in childhood. The 8th and youngest was King Leopold I. already 
mentioned, who, after the death of the Princess Charlotte, married the eldest daughter of King Louis 
Philippe, by whom he became father of his present Majesty, King Leopold II. We have reserved 
for the last place Duke Francis's 6th child, the Princess Victoria Mary Louisa, mother of her late 
Majesty Queen Victoria, but in the first place wife of Prince Emich Charles, who till his death in 1814 
was Eeigning Prince of Leiningen, and whose two children, Prince Charles Emich his successor and 
Anne who became Princess of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Countess Gleichen, were the parents 
(especially the latter) of the extensive lines of first cousins of His Majesty numbered 246-96 in our 
list of the Roj'al Relatives. 

After the death of Prince Emich Charles the Princess Victoria married the Duke of Kent, and their 
only issue was our late Queen. By their marriage the Houses of Hanover and Saxe-Coburg 
were again united after the unhappy severing of their former alliance by the death of Princess 
Charlotte; but the subsequent union of her late Majesty with Prince Albert, son of Duke Ernest 
HL effected a second amalgamation from which the two Houses have seemed to become practically 

The death of Queen Victoria occurred on the 22nd of January, 1901, in the 82nd year of her age and 
the 64th of her reign— distinguished as being the longest in English history. The nearest approach 
to it, that of George III., was clearly short of 60, and it is singular that the only other Monarchs who 
attained to a sovereignty of half a century were also both of them the third of their respective names- 
Henry III., 56, and Edward III., 50. 


~ — H — 

The system of alphabetical arrangement is carried consistently out, to the entire 
ignoring of precedence. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to carry out this latter 
rule consistently in a work which places all ranks under a single alphabet. W e accord- 
ingly adopt the following order in cases of more than one person having the same 
surname or title : — First a surname standing alone (family name) ; then the titles of 
honour, in the alphabetical order — Archbishop, Baron, Baronet, Bishop, Count, Duke, 
Earl, Hon. Lady, Knight, Lady, Lord, Marquess, Master, Privy Councillor, Viscount 
(the widows of each rank coming immediately after that rank itself, as "Baron," 
"Baron's Widow"), the headings "Hon. Lady" and " Lady " being used almost 
exclusively as references ; then follow those having a Christian name in the heading 
(chiefly Ladies, Honourables, and Companions of Orders), succeeding each other solely 
by order of those names, the connecting titles, Captain, Hon. , Lady, Lord, Reverend, 
&c, being printed in small letters and wholly ignored in the alphabetising. A Baronet 
or Knight who is also a Privy Councillor is placed under this latter heading as the higher 
in precedence. When of the same surname, Baronets are arranged in the alphabetical 
order of their topographical distinctions ; their widows similarly (but in one paragraph), 
and two or more of the same line in order of seniority ; Knights and their widows, in 
the order of their Christian names. The list under a simple surname is exhausted before 
the compounds of that name are commenced, and an arrangement is adopted which 
brings all the names of the same compound together. Compound names connected by a 
hyphen are placed under the second or last name, unless some other is the only one in 
use; but titles (as "Castle Cuffe," "Mount Edgcumbe," " Saye and Sele," "Burdett- 
Coutts," which is title and name both, and such forms as " Egerton of Tatton " and 
"Willoughby de Broke") are placed under the first name, whilst those commencing 
with St., Du, Le, Von, &c, and mostly De and Van (see note under "De"), stand 
under the respective prefixes. " M' " or " Mc " is treated as if spelt Mac, and " St." as 
Saint. See for illustration the Preliminary List under "Campbell." 

The names of wives are usually omitted when their husbands' titles do not extend 
to them and they bear no title of their own by birth. This rule applies to the wives of 
Bishops, Privy Councillors, and Knight Companions, but if these, though untitled, 
hold precedence as daughters of Baronets or Knights, that fact is endeavoured to be 
made known. 

Under Peers' Issue the deceased offspring of former Peers are omitted. "Heir to 
Dukedom," or other leading title, implies as a rule heir to all the titles borne ; when 
otherwise it is so stated. The expressions, " Title of heir when a son" and "Title of 
eldest son " of course refer only to sons of the existing Peer. _ In the Indexes to surnames 
the same person is often repeated under more than one of his or her Christian names — 
simply because the first is not always the one in conventional use. The addition 
sep. implies a separate entry under the surname. 

Under Baronets, if there are more than one of the same name, the topographical 
distinction is added in italics in the heading. In many other instances, however, it is 
appended in the text, as where there is still a surviving widow of an extinct line, or 
where two names are pronounced alike but differently spelt (as Bailey and Baillie). 

Under Knights, it may be noted that former titles since absorbed in higher ones are 
only appended (in parentheses) when they serve to indicate the date at which the person 
was first addressed as "Sir." Native Indian and Honorary Companions of Orders 
(also Hon. C.V.O.'s and generally now most Honorary Knights) are not inserted. 
Military Knights and Companions marked {e.g.) "D.S.O. (1900-1) " were so created by 
King Edward in 1901 but given precedence of 1900 as if conferred by the late Queen. 

One Club is given (if known) when there is no other address, but not otherwise unless 
from some specially stated reason. 

The " Cautions as to Spelling of Titles &c." will now be found at the close of the Introduction immediately 
before Royal Family.

—Among the ancestors of this line were the Scottish 
Lords of Cadzow and Earls of Arran (the former title 
feudal and extinct, the bitter now passed to the Duke of 
Hamilton — see that title). The 2nd son of the 2nd Earl 
was created Marquess of Hamilton, and is the founder 
of that elder branch of the family from which, though 
afterwards only on the maternal side, the Dukes of 
Hamilton derive their origin. The 4th son of the same 
Earl was given the Paisley Lordship, and his successor 
was made Lord and aftetwards Earl of Abercorn, with 
the accompanying titles of 1606. The two Peerages thus 
parted off : the 3rd Mary., of Plamiiton was made Duke 
of the same, and the marriage of his daughter and 
successor with the Earl of Selkirk, son of the 1st Marq. 
of Douglas, constituted the Hamilton line of Dukes 
the representatives on the female side of the older 
branch of the house of Hamilton, whilst the male heir- 
ship passed to the 2nd Earl of Abercorn, through whose 
relatives the younger branch is continued in the present 
Dukes of the latter title— their line having all along 
followed male descent and thus made them the heads of 
the house of Hamilton, as the Hamilton Dukes are of 
that of Douglas. A brother of the 2nd Earl of Aber- 
corn was made Lord Hamilton of Strabane, being thus 
the first in the house to hold an Irish title in this dis- 
tinctly Scottish family ; the 6th Earl, who resided 
mostly in Ireland, was promoted to be Vise. Strabane in 
the same Peerage. The 1st Duke of Abercorn was Lord

Dukedom was conferred upon the 2nd Earl of Arran, as 
stated under " Chatelherault."

E. of Cardigan, 1661. Gt. Br. : Bn. Bruce of Tottenham, 
1746 ; E. of Ailesbury, 1776. U.K. : M. of Ailesbury, 
Earl Bruce, and Vise. Savernake, 1821.— The 2nd E. of 
Elgin was granted the English Earldom of Ailesbury for 
his devotion to the two Charleses. It became extinct in 
1747 on the death of the 3rd Earl, but was revived to 
his nephew, whose son, the 2nd Earl by the new creation, 
was elevated to the Marquessate. The name Bruce 
was assumed by the 1st Earl of this later creation. The 
Barony of Brudenell was conferred upon Sir Thos. 
Brudenell, 1st Bt., and later on his devotion to the 
Royalist side was rewarded with the Cardigan Earl- 
dom (both he and the 1st Earl of Ailesbury had been 
imprisoned) : the two titles came into the Ailesbury 
line under the 2nd Marq. in i863. The 3rd Earl 
under the older creation had been given the Bruce 
of Tottenham Barony, and this by a special re- 
mainder passed to the above Sir Thos. Brudenell, from 
whom it eventually came back to the Ailesbury line ; 
but the Tottenham Park which gave this title its name 
is in Wiltshire immediately adjoining the above Saver- 
nake Forest. The Bruce Castle of the London suburb of 
Tottenham has thus no connection whatever with this 
line ; in default, however, it can claim to be linked with 
the illustrious name of "the Bruce of Bannockburn." 
Robert de Brus, as he is termed in the 'History 
of Tottenham,' the grandfather of the great Robert, and 
a descendant of David, Earl of Huntingdon, was allotted 
that portion of the parish of Tottenham then termed the 
Manor of Bruses. His eldest son, Robert, styled in 
right of his wife Earl of Carrick, on returning from the 

Crusades, settled at the Manor House ; but his warrior 
son, the 3rd Robert, on revolting from England, had all 
his English lands seized by Edward II. The Crown, 
however, from time to time made various grants of the 
estate, and in 1514 Henry VIII. consigned it to Sir Wm. 
Compton, an ancestor of the Northampton house. After- 
wards it was held by the Earl of Dorset, Lord Coleraine, 
and others, till in 1827 the famous Sir Rowland Hill 
converted it into a boarding-school. As such it remained 
till 1890, but is now used only as a house of refreshment 
in the public park passing under its name. An engrav- 
ing dated 1686 shows that it once possessed far more 
than at present of the genuine features of a " Castle."

Creations. Scot. : Ld. Ogilvy of Airlie, 1491; E. of Air- 
lie and Ld. Ogilvy of Alyth and Lintrathen, 1639. " Ld. 
Ogilvy" is the courtesy-title of an eldest son.— The 
1st Lord Ogilvy was Ambassador to Denmark ; his grand- 
father bad been High Treasurer of Scotland. The 7th 
Lord was created Earl. The history of this line is 
involved in two Acts of Attainder which have given 
rise to confusion among authorities as to the number 
who are fairly to be classed as Earls. We have followed 
' Burke ' and ' Foster ' ('Lodge ') in regarding the present 
Peer as the 9th, but some term him the nth or 12th, 
'Debrett' the 7th. The earlier of the two attainders 
cancelled the title of the elder son of the 3rd E., the 
latter that of the elder son and grandson of the 4th : 
indeed this 4th E. himself, and his younger son whom 
we accept as the gth, were considered during their 
lifetime as also legally excluded, and this certainly gives 
warrant to their omission by ' Debrett,' but the sub- 
sequent Parliamentary recognition of the 6th E., their 
immediate descendant, seems to have been regarded as 
tacitly removing their own disabilities. The former of 
the two attainders, it may be added, was in consequence 
of participation in the Earl of Mar's rebellion of 1715, 
the latter for siding with the Pretender at Culloden.

active supporter of Edward I. in his French and Scot-

Gwydyr, and thus the two titles became for a time

Peerage passed to a cousin, whilst the older Barony was 
awarded (after a brief abeyance) to his elder sister, 
widow of the 1st Bn. Aveland, who was previously Sir 
Gilbert Heathcote, 5th Bt., and whose mother was 
Ctss. of Dysart in her own right. His son, the present 
Peer, who is thus a Baron through both his father and 
mother, and grandson of a Countess, was created Earl of 
Ancaster. He is 22nd Baron Willoughby, but 25th when 
Baronesses are counted.

Uxbridge, Gt. Br. 1784; M. of Anglesey, U.K. 1815; a 
Bt. Irel. 1730.— The 1st Bn. Paget was executor to 
Henry VIII. and raised to the Peerage under Edward 
VI. The gth Bn. obtained the Uxbridge Earldom, 
he being cousin of a previous Earl of that title, which 
had subsisted 1714-69. His successor was raised to the 
Marquessate, having been greatly distinguished in the 
Peninsular War and having at AVaterloo led the grand 
charge which is considered to have decided the victory ; 
he. was afterwards twice Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. 
The line of succession from 1760 has descended from Sir 
Nicholas Bayly, 2nd Bt., who had married the heiress 
of the Paget Bny., and whose son, the above 9th Bn. 
and 1st Earl, immediately assumed the ancient family 
name. A former Earldom of Anglesey belonged to a 
distinct family— that of Villiers— and lasted 1623-60; 
this was followed in 1661 by the awarding of the same 
title to the 2nd Vise. Valentia, but it also expired as 
noticed under the latter peerage.

Cre ation. E. of Antrim and Vise. Dunluce, Irel., new 
patent 1785 modifying orig. of 1620. — A family of 
Scottish origin, descended from John, Lord of the Isles, 
who married a daughter of King Robert II. His de- 
scendants, however, were more than once in rebellion, 
and after the execution of one of them, with four of his 
six sons, in 1494, the two surviving sons fled to Ireland, 
but returned later on, and in 1529 " ravaged the lands of 
the Campbells with lire and swerd" ('Burke'). The 
next representative of the family was at war with both 
the Irish and English, but became possessed of lands in 
Ireland and eventually settled down as a faithful sub- 
ject of Queen Elizabeth. He was made a free citizen 
01 Ireland, and married the daughter of the Earl of 
-yrone. His son Sir Randal MacSorley McDonnell 
obtained the Peerage. The 6th Earl, having no male 
issue, procured the right of succession for his daughters 
and their male ijsue, so that there was never any 
interruption in the line : the present Earl is therefore 
actually the nth, though holding his title from a 
patent under which he is only the 6th. The 2nd Earl of 
the original creation was promoted to be Mara, of 
Antrim, but that title expired upon the death of the 
6th, not being included in the extended remainder to 
daughters. The 2nd of these married Lord Mark Robert 
Jterr, but her son, on succeeding as 9th Earl, resumed 
tne former name of McDonnell.

Br. : Bn. Sundridge, 1766, and Bn. Hamilton of Hamel- 
don, 1776. U.K.: D. of Argyll, 1892.— Sir Colin 
Campbell, of Lochow, wbo was knighted in 1280 by 
Alexander III., was called by the Gaelic title Mac 
Callum Mor— i.e., Mac Callum the Great (his father 
was called Cailin Mor, and the two similar forms have 
been confused and led to several variations). This chief 
was slain in a conflict with the Lord of Lorn, but the 
two houses were in time united by marriage. Sir 
Colin's descendants adhered to the fortunes of the 
Bruces, and came to be created successively Lords 

Campbell and Earls of Argyll. The 7th Earl long after- 
wards was made Ld. of Kintyre. The 8th received the 
title of Marcj. of Argyll, but it died with him, he being 
executed, with the instrument termed " the Maiden," for 
having supported Cromwell. The 9th was sentenced to 
the same fate for refusing to subscribe the Test Act ; he 
escaped from prison in the disguise of a page holding up 
the train of his step-daughter, butwas taken in an attempt 
to invade Scotland, and the previous sentence was then 
carried into effect. The io&h Earl was created a Duke in 
the Peerage of Scotland, and the late 8th Duke nearly 
two centuries later obtained the U.K. Dukedom. The 
British title of Bn. Sundridge was awarded to the 5th 
Duke, and his wife was shortly afterwards made Bnss. 
Hamilton of Hameldon in Leicestershire. 

* His Grace writes this county " Dumbarton." That 
form may be the original, but it is clearly gone out of 
use as we do no find it recognised in either the Census 
Returns, the Postal Guide, or Oliver and Boyd's Almanac, 
though Keith Johnston's Gazetteer gives " Dumbarton 
or Dunbarton."

*** The ancestry numbers among its collaterals both 
Friar Bacon and Sir Francis, Bn. Vcrulam, commonly, 
but incorrectly known as Lord Bacon. The famous Lord 
Chancellor never held the title of Baron Bacon, and it is 
the confusion between "Lord Verulam" and "Lord Chan- 
cellor Bacon " that has given rise to the common error. 
He was Sir Francis Bacon, Kt., Bn. Verulam (not Earl), 
and Vise. St. Albans (a facsimile of his autograph in 
Doyle's "Baronage" gives it as St. Alban), all his titles 
becoming extinct at his death. Neither he nor Roger 
Bacon left any children, and the founder of the family 
was Sir Nicholas Bacon (Kt.), Lord Keeper to Queen 
Elizabeth, whose eldest son, Sir Nicholas, half-bro. of 
Sir Francis, became 1st Bt.

E. of Glamorgan, A'isc. Grosmont, and Bn. Beaufort, 
1644; 1). of Beaufort, i632.— The Botetourt Bny. was 
first granted to Jno. de Botetourt, but fell into abeyance 
on the death of his son in 1405, so continuing till 1764, 
and again from 1776 to 1803, when it was revived to the 
5th Duke. The Herbert of Herbert Bny. was conferred 
upon AVm. Herbert, afterwards Eirl of Pembroke, 
beheaded 1469. His son succeeded him, and had his 
Earldom exchanged for that of Huntingdon. Sir Gluts. 
Somerset, K.G. and Kt. Banneret, a natural son of 
Henry Beaufort, Luke of Somerset, was created Bn. 
Herbert of Ragland &c, but, having married the 
heiress of t he preceding, he was summoned to Parliament 
as Bn. Herbert of Herbert, thus uniting the two 
Baronies, though they retain their distinction as one by 
writ and the other by patent, and are subject to the 
possibility of becoming separated, as shown in the 
statement of heirdom below. Sir Charles was after- 
wards created Earl of AVorcester. The 5th Earl was 
raised to the Marquessate, the 2nd Marq. before succes- 
sion had the title Earl .of Glamorgan conferred on 
him, and the 3rd was created Duke of Beaufort. The 
Grosmont A'iscty. may originally have been " Grismond," 
as Sir H. Nicolas argues, mentioning, however, a 
Grosmont in Normandy which may have produced the 
altered form. At all events the ruins of Gros>r>ont 
Castle still exist in the late grounds of the Duke in

Creation. Bn. Beaumont, Eng. 1309 by writ.— The 
1st Bn., Henry de Beaumont, was son of Louis 
de Brienne (by an heiress of the Beaumonts of Nor- 
mandy, whose name he assumed), and grandson of John 
de Brienne, King of Jerusalem, by Bcrengaria sister of 
Ferdinand, King of Castile and Leon, being thus 2nd 
cousin to Edward IT. ; he was also a, relative and com- 
panion-in-arms of Edward I. in his Scottish wars. The 
2nd Baron, John, married Eleanor Plantagenet, daughter 
of Henry, Earl of Lancaster, who was grandson of 
Henry III. and great-grandson, through his mother, 
Blanche d'Artois, of Louis VIII. of France. Isabel, 
daughter of the 1st Baron, married Henry, Duke of Lan- 
caster, and was grandmother of Henry IV. On the 
death of the 7th Bn. in ^507 the Peerage fell into abey- 
ance, and so continued until 1840. A second but much 
briefer abeyance followed in 1895 when the 10th Bn. left 
at his death two daughters, to the elder of whom the 
succession was awarded by the Crown in the next year. 
The 6th and 7th Bhs. held the title of Vise. Beaumont 
(1440-1507), this constituting the first creation of this 
rank in England.

BERKELEY (pron. Barkly), family name of

BERKELEY, Baroness. Eva Mary Fitz- 
hardinge Foley, Bnss. 16th in line (21st of orig. 
creation ; Eng.) : dau. of prev. Bnss. and of Maj.- 
Gen. Gustavus H. L. Miiman, B.A. ; b. March 4, 
1875 ; sue. 1899 ; mar. 1903 Capt. Frank Wigram 
Foley, D.S.O., q.v. 

Creation. Bn. Berkeley, Eng. 14*1 (orig. 1295).— The 
6th feudal Lord of Berkeley had accompanied Edward I. 
in his Welsh wars, and was the isb Bn. B. by writ under 
the summons of 1295. His successors each received 
the same summons till the death of the 5th Bn. in 
1417. This nobleman left an only child, a daughter, 
Elizabeth, to whom by right the title should have 
descended. The writ, however, was issued in 1421 to Jas 
de Berkeley, nephew of the late Peer, and this Sir H. 
Nicolas regards as a new creation and "the beginning of 
the present Barony of Berkeley." As to the title dejure, 
it passed from the above Elizabeth to her three daughters, 
involving an abeyance which has never been terminated. 
The 5th Bn. was knighted on Plodden Field by the 
Earl of Surrey. The 9th Bn. was created an Earl, but 
the succession to that title was not open to females 
as in the case of the Barony, so that on the death of 
the 6th Earl without issue in 1S82, the two Peerages 
.became separated as at present. The Bnss. 15th in line 
{n.'e Berkeley) changed the family name by her marriage 
with Maj.-Gen. Gustavus Mflman, and her daughter the 
present Peeress has again (1903) introduced a change by 
her union with Capt. Eoley. 


Dau. of present Bnss. :

*#* The explanation of this series of titles has been 
courteously supplied us from the Siamese Legation: 
Chao Phya is the highest title in the nobility, taken as 
equal to Duke (Phya alone equals Marquess), While 
Maha Kosq corresponds to His Grace or His Lordship, 
bo that " Chao Phya Bhanuwongse, Maha Kosa " may be 
rendered "His Nobility the Luke Bhanuwongse" (the 
English prefix of H.E. being rendered superfluous). 
The additional words Tibodi li PhraHang Imply 
" Administrator of Finances."

Breadalbane, 1873 ; M. of Breadalbane and E. of Ormelie, 
1885 (the earlier creation of 1831 became extinct with 
the death of the 2nd M. in 1862).— Sir John Campbell, 
5th Bt. of Glenorchy, who, like Bn. Blythswood, was 
descended from the same line as the Argylls, was the 
recipient of all the Scottish Peerages. An invasion by 
him of the lands of the Earl of Caithness was the origin 
of the song " The Campbells are coming." Owing to 
an heraldic error, King Charles II. had awarded him also 
the title of Earl of Caithness, and this invasion was his 
mode of enforcing his claim; but in 1681 the mistake 
was discovered and the wrong title dropped, though the 
precedence of 1677 was certified for the remaining 
honours. The original title is given in ' Burke ' as 
" Braed Albane." The U.K. titles were awarded to the 
4th Earl.
