This is an index of about 5,750 titles of honour, alphabetically arranged, which gives the family name for all the Peerages and Baronetages of the United Kingdom, both existing and extinct at the time the work was originally published. It also shows the date when each separate title was conferred, the family seat, and the changes which the titles underwent. Since hereditary titles of honour often are used by direct male descendants and, in some creations, by heirs in general, the family names themselves are little known. Identification of family hereditary honors is thus facilitated through the use of this index.
