Knights Baronets


Inferior barons, an order of hereditary rank, created by James I. in 1611. The title was sold for money, and the funds went nominally towards the plantation of Ulster. These knights bear the arms of Ulster, viz. a field argent, a sinister hand couped at the wrist gules. (See Hand.)
