Peerage of England

The Peerage of England comprises all peerages created in the Kingdom of England before the Act of Union in 1707. In that year, the Peerages of England and Scotland were replaced by one Peerage of Great Britain.

Until the passage of the House of Lords Act 1999, all Peers of England could sit in the House of Lords. The ranks of the English peerage are Duke, Marquess, Earl, Viscount, and Baron. While most newer English peerages descend only in male line, many of the older ones (particularly older baronies) can descend through females. Due to English inheritance law, however, all daughters are co-heirs, so many older English peerage titles have fallen into abeyance between various female co-heirs.

In the following table of English peers, higher or equal titles in the other peerages are listed. However, each peer is listed only by his or her highest English title.
