THE ENGLISH PEERAGE (1790)

or, a view of the

ANCIENT and PRESENT STATE

of the

ENGLISH NOBILITY

London: M,DCC,XC


The following files contain transcriptions from the above book. The original came in three volumes of which I only have the second Volume which contains Viscounts and Barons plus some of the extinct titles. (Anyone out there have the other two Volumes?).

There will undoubtedly be some errors in the transcription, as this was carried out by scanning and OCRing. The original text contains the old English long "s" (looks like a lower case "f" with only the left hand part of the bar), and joined "ct". I was originally going to supply the information as a pure text file, however in this form it was very hard to read and so my daughter Anne and I have "htmlised" it - this detracts nothing from the original text which is still word for word as per the original (errors notwithstanding). The Viscount files are approximately 41KBytes each, and the Barons 30Kilobytes each.

Please note that what you see is what there is, I do not have any more information, however if you should need a date or word checking then I will willingly do this. If you need information on modern day peerage etc. then try:

If you should need to contact me, please use the link at the bottom of the relevant page.
