Talk:Earl of Stockton

Heirs Male WHATSOEVER??Edit

I'd be stunned if it could be confirmed that this title has a remainder to "heirs male whatsoever" rather than heirs male "of the body".The "whatsoever" remainder is generally found only in old Scottish titles and means that kinfolk descended in the male line from male-line ancestors of the grantee,as far back as needs to be traced to find one,are eligible if the grantee's issue male die out.Can this be sourced/confirmed?--L.E./ (talk) 02:45, 11 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Only remaining hereditary peerages created since 1964?Edit

"The earldom of Stockton and viscountcy of Macmillan of Ovenden [...] are the only surviving non-royal hereditary peerages created since 1965." Isn't Thatcher baronetcy a third such? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:20, 12 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A baronetcy can be inherited but it is not a peerage. (Also, the article is terrible. It reads like a computer wrote it.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:01, 6 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
