ONCE HELD BY KING Henry VII and HENRY VIII
Baron and Baroness Title – Higher in Rank than a Lord and Lady Title.
Most Lordships had a court that could deal with minor crimes, serious crimes were dealt with in the nearest Baron’s court called a “Court Baron”. The Baron’s Court was also a Tax collector on behalf of the crown in the feudal system. Baronial Courts (Baronial house for the Baron and Baroness) were generally far grander than a normal Manor house of Lords and Ladies, most Manor houses were no more than a farmhouse.
Barons and Baronesses would display their higher status to Lords and Ladies by holding banquets and offering their guests rare and expensive foods. They would wear expensive clothing often with gold or silver thread. The banqueting hall would have a grand large fireplace to keep their guest warm during the banquet. Wine was served in “Goat Skins” squeezed into wine jugs and served in pewter or wood tankers or silver goblets.
To be a Baron and Baroness in the medieval times was like being a celebrity in today’s society. Commoners, Lords and Ladies had to bow to Barons and Baronesses. They rode big shire horses (medieval Ferrari) as a display of their status, they had knights (bodyguards) to guard them when they travelled. They were high society of their time. Titled people in the 21st century are so rare, most titled people inherited their title; people will think that is the case when you use your title. We are governed by strict privacy laws in Europe which do not allow us to disclose to anyone that you bought it, so the sale is absolutely private and confidential.
Barons and Baronesses generally wore a baronial seal ring, therefore we are including this nobility seal ring with every Baron and Baroness purchased.
