The British Peerage in 1818: Peerages 139 - 235: Earldoms in the Peerage of Great Britain and Ireland

By Stephen Millar 

The title of earl ranks third-highest in the British peerage, preceeding the titles of viscount and baron. In 1818, there was a grand total of 210 earldoms, of which 97 had been created in the peerage of Great Britain and Ireland. One of these peerages, the re-created earldom of Antrim, was held by a woman: Anne Catherine Macdonnell, 2nd Countess of Antrim (11.02.1778-30.06.1834).

There were two 'double' earldoms in the peerage of Great Britain and Ireland: Oxford and Mortimer and Warwick and Brooke of Warwick Castle. Stamford and Warrington were part of a double earldom split between the peerage of England and the peerage of Great Britain and Ireland; Fitzwilliam and Fitzwilliam were split between the peerage of Ireland and the peerage of Great Britain and Ireland.
