Subject: RE: Lord Franklin in Copyright?
Yes , Michael ! And , I believe from memory ,although I could check in "Boutells" , that Baronets were the "lowest of the low" , not entitled to sit in the House of Lords, or to be addressed as "Lord" , and were created to provide an aristocracy or titled class to rule over Provinces such as Ulster ,etc within the British Empire , the name "Baronet" believed to derive from the French "Banneret" ?? Hence the simple "Sir John and Lady Franklin ". And my memories are more of Pentangle than Carthy !
