Foregn Noblity Precedency questioned.
Whereas divers Englishmen have obtained Degrees of
Honour, as of Earls, Viscounts, and Barons, within the
Kingdoms of Scotland and Ireland, and thereby do pre
tend to have Place and Precedency, in all Commissions
and Meetings, above the Nobility of this Kingdom; the
House was moved this Day, To consider how this Wrong
may be redressed; either by an Act of Parliament to be
passed by both Houses, or by an humble Petition of their
Lordships unto His Majesty, or by a joint Protestation of
this House against it:
Whereupon the House was put into a Committee, for
the freer Debate hereof; and, being resumed, these
Lords undernamed were appointed to meet presently,
and set down in Writing what shall be propounded to
the House herein videlicet,
L. Archbp. of York.
L. Privy Seal.
E. of Dorsett.
E. of Bristol.
E. of Clare.
E. of Mulgrave.
|L. Bp. of London.
L. Bp. of Co. et Lich.
The Committee returned, and delivered in this Proposition: videlicet,
"WE conceive that no Foreign Nobility hath any
Right of Precedency within the Realm of England,
before any Peer of this Kingdom.
"Yet notwithstanding, of Courtesy, a Precedency
hath been allowed to Noblemen of Foreign Kingdoms,
according to then Ranks, which it is no ways our Intentions to alter :
"But, in regard that of late many Englishmen, both
by Birth, Estate, and Abode, and the more considerable because of their great Number, have had several
Honours, in the Kingdoms of Scotland and Ireland,
conceived to be very differvicable to His Majesty,
and prejudicial to the Peers, that which the Committee do in Humility offer unto the House is, To
consider what Way and Course is the fittest to be
taken, for addressing ourselves to His Majesty, for the
remedying and redressing of that Inconvenience".
This being read, it was put to the Question, and generally Assented unto by all their Lordships, nemine
