Overview

Between 1688--when James II and VII was declared to have abdicated his throne--and 1784, James II and VII and his successors in exile (Bonnie Prince Charlie, etc.) retained the plenary authority to bestow nobiliary and chilvalric honors. In fact, the Stuarts conferred over two hundred hereditary titles and made hundreds of court appointments during this ninety-six-year period. The names and particulars of those receiving such titles are extraordinarily difficult to locate, since they do not appear in any of the standard books on the Peerage and Baronetage. For this reason, Genealogical Publishing Company is pleased to announce their reissue of Marquis de Ruvigny & Raineval's acclaimed "The Jacobite Peerage," the only book ever to document these unofficial conferrals. This remarkable work, treating titles that are neither claimed nor used, and which died with the dynasty by which they were conferred, contains a previously untapped wealth of genealogical and historical material.
