ADWERTISEMENT.

THE PRoPRIETons of DEBRETT's PEERAGE return their grateful thanks to the Public for the extensive patronage with which it has been uniformly honoured, and to render this, the Twenty-second Edition, yet more worthy that patronage, the Editor has made several improvements in addition to those which have characterised the later impressions of the Work; the armorial bearings have, for the more convenient purpose of reference, been incorporated with the text; a new Dormant and Extinct Peerage of Ireland, compiled from original and unpublished documents, has been completed, after much labour and trouble, and appended to those of England, and Scotland, thus forming a complete DoRMANT and ExTINct PEERAGE of the THREE KING Doms ; the Table of Precedency has been likewise revised and corrected from authentic sources, and a list given of all members of noble families having special warrants of precedency; and the whole has been scrupulously corrected from the communications of the Nobility and other evidences. The NEw PEERs, created at HER MAJEsty's Coron AT ion are now added, completing the Work to the present date.
