Since its inception in 1826, Burke's Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage has been rightly regarded as the definitive reference book on the British aristocracy, and has become an institution in its own right. Burke's is to many people the most prestigious name in genealogical and family history publishing, a prestige which rests on exhaustive research and the clear, accurate and concise presentation of detailed information.
Two years in the making, this 107th edition is likely to be the last, to be replaced with electronic versions and printed updates only. It is fitting then that this edition has been expanded to include Knights, Scottish and Irish chiefs, and Scottish Feudal barons, and includes the details of 120,000 living people. Entrants include figures linked to historic families, the military, politics, the arts, industry, education and much more. It is unquestionably the most comprehensive genealogical study of the British aristocracy to date, and will remain an essential reference source for years to come.
