PREFACE.



DURING the past year, which has witnessed the end of the Great War and
the complete triumph of the Allied cause, many changes have been
occasioned by the bestowal of a great number of well-merited honours,
mostly for services in connection with the War, by the demobilization of a large
part of the Naval, Military and Air Forces, by the sale of many estates and by
the General Election and the changing of the names of numerous constituencies.

The deaths occasioned directly or indirectly by the War amount to a total
of 982, including H.H. Prince Maurice of Battenberg; 21 Peers; 62 heirs
apparent and 5 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs apparent of Peers ; 18 heirs
presumptive and 6 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs presumptive of Peers ; the
husband of a co-heiress presumptive of a Peer, and the elder son of a Peer's
daughter and only child ; 1 Privy Councillor ; 45 Baronets ; 76 heirs apparent
and 4 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs apparent of Bai-onets ; 17 heirs presump-
tive and 9 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs presumptive of Baronets, and the
husband of a Baronet's daughter and only child ; 7 Knights ; 213 other heads
of families; the husbands of 13 heads of families; the step-father of the head
of a family ; 444 heirs apparent and 12 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs
apparent; 7 heirs presumptive and 14 eldest, elder or only sons of heirs pre-
sumptive, and the husbands of 3 heiresses ptesumptive of other heads of families ;
while the fate is still unknown of 2 Baronets, 3 heirs apparent of Baronets (one
now a Baronet, if living), 2 heads of families, and 6 heirs apparent of heads



0flam.ues. 128C990

The Editor has again to express his gratitude for a vast amount of
information most courteously sent to him en the forms returned and in reply to
questions, and would more especially thank the wives, widows and mothers of
Officers for the information so generously furnished by them.

It has been his duty to note since the last publication the deaths of H.R.H.
Prince John, youngest son of H.M. The King, of 55 Peers (including 1 Spiritual
Peer and 2 Life Peers), of 9 wives, 26 widows (includiag the widow of a Life
Peer), 8 heirs apparent, and 2 heirs presumptive, of Peers; the Baronies of
Beresford of Metemmeh, Colchester, Courtney of Penwith, Forrest, Nicholson
and Rathmore have become e.xtinct ; 8 Privy CouncOlors (other than Peers,
Baronets, and Knights), 85 Baronets, 14 wives, 39 widows, 19 heirs apparent,
and 16 heirs presumptive, of Baronets have died ; 16 Baronetcies have become
extinct; the deaths have occurred of 2 Dames of the Order of the British
Empire, of 171 Knights, of 42 wives, and 70 widows of Knights, and of 456
other heads of families, 72 wives, 83 heirs apparent, and 8 heirs presumptive
of other heads of families.

The Editor will always receive with the greatest gratitude any corrections,
and will adopt, as far as possible, any suggestions which may be addressed to him
to the care of the Publishers, Messrs. Spottiswoode, Ballantyne & Co. Ltd.,
1 New-Street Square, London, E.C. 4, and would suggest to any persons who
may wish to use the work as a directory that it is advisable to read the notice as to
postal addresses on page 1. The annoyance of having circulars returned by the
Post Office may thus in many cases be avoided.

September, 1919.



EXTRACT PROM THE

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.



ris impossible for me to send forth to the Public this work — the result of more
than two years' constant labour and research — without acknowledging in
terms of gratitude the kind and generous assistance which I have received from
almost every quarter, in answer to the circulars which I have issued to the present
representatives of the highest families in the three kingdoms, whether numbered
among the ' titled ' or the ' untitled ' aristocracy, who, with few exceptions, have
freely communicated to me the information which I requested at their hands. Here
and there, it is true, my applications have been met with a refusal on the part of
those who were most nearly interested ; but even in these cases I have endeavoured
to keep faith with the public, by instituting private inquiries among local friends
and correspondents, and by consulting a large library of useful books of reference.
By these means I have been enabled to produce a volume which, in spite of
numerous imperfections, embraces the whole of the titled, and by far the largest
portion of the untitled aristocracy of the three kingdoms, and may, therefore,
fairly lay claim to be styled, in common parlance, a ' Dictionary of the Upper Ten
Thousand.'

I am well aware that such a book as this must always remain, in one sense,
imperfect in a country like our own, where, mainly owing to the influence of trade
and commerce, individuals and families are continually crossing and re-crossing
the narrow line which severs the aristocracy from the commonalty. But I can safely
promise that, as often as a new edition of the ' County Families ' shall be called
for, the book shall be found in a state more nearly approaching completion, by the
constant addition of fresh families to the roll of its contents, and by carefully noting
the various changes wrought day by day by the silent operation of births, marriages,
deaths, and preferments, in the families whose names I record.

It is to be hoped that the public and subscribers to the work will pardon such
errata as they may find on referring to their names ; and they will further oblige
me if they will kindly communicate to me those errors, through my Publishers, in
order that they may be rectified in future editions. When they call to mind that
every separate entry involves a statement of from five to fifty facts, inclusive of
dates, the public will be able to realize some portion of the labour of an Editor in
preparing such a work as this for the press.

I have not chosen the title of this work without deliberation. I have called
my book a Manhal of the Titled and Untitled Aristockact, and have accordingly
arranged both these orders under a single alphabet, because I remember the words
of James I., that ' the king, though he can make a noble, cannot make a gentleman,'
and because the bearing of arms, not of titles, has ever been considered as the
distinctive mark of true noblesse.
