      Continuance in British living history of our era will at some point bring one to encounter a complex set of social rules governing peerages (noble titles) -- usually unexplained. Some of the Richmond's family of members portray a persona connected to nobility. Additional lists show life peerages created under the Life Peerages Act , other peerages created since , and peerages conferred on women. In the case of this last list, it should be noted that peerages created before did not confer membership of the House of Lords on the original grantee.
