What is a Baronetcy?
Per Wikipedia, in the United Kingdom a baronet is a man who has the title Sir, like a knight, but who is neither
- a senior member of one of the orders of chivalry, sometimes called orders of knighthood,
- nor a Knight Bachelor.
Unlike the members of the orders of chivalry and a knight bachelor a baronet can pass his title to his children.
Baronets rank higher than knights, but below barons.
