  Writ - LoveToKnow 1911
The writ process was at that date the foundation of all civil justice in the king's court, and of much in the lower courts, and was a profitable source of revenue to the exchequer.
Writs were not framed on any scientific scheme, but as occasion arose, and were frequently the result of compromise in the struggle between the king's and the lords' courts.
The writ was issued from the common law side of the chancery, and was in the special charge of the hanaper and petty bag offices.' Though issuing from the king's chancery, it did not necessarily direct the trial of the question in the king's court.

 Hereditary peer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Scottish equivalent to the English barony is the "lordship of Parliament", the male holder thereof being known as a lord of Parliament.
A writ of acceleration is a type of writ of summons that enables the eldest son of a peer to attend the House of Lords using one of his father's subsidiary titles.
Several instances may be cited: the Barony of Nelson (to an elder brother and his heirs-male), the Earldom of Roberts (to a daughter and her heirs-male), the Barony of Amherst (to a nephew and his heirs-male) and the Dukedom of Dover (to a younger son and his heirs-male while the eldest son is still alive).

 [No title]
The conclusion, then, may be drawn that in theory the issue of a writ was at the pleasure of the Crown, and that in practice the moving factor in the case of the prelates was office and personal importance, and in the case of abbots and barons probably, in the main, extent of possession.
Some sixty writs were issued, and presumably their recipients were entitled thereby to sit for the duration of the parliament to which they were summoned; but it may be considered as certain that Cromwell's lords were never regarded as hereditary peers.
It was once argued that whenever a barony by writ came into the possession of a person already a peer of higher rank, the higher peerage " attracted" or overshadowed the lower, which thenceforth followed the course of descent of the dignity which had attracted it.

 Baron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Scotland, the rank of baron is a rank related to feudal nobility of Scotland and refers to a holder of a feudal barony, a feudal superiority over a proper territorial entity erected into a free barony by a Crown Charter, and not a rank of Peerage.
Baronies are often subsidiary titles, thus being used as courtesy titles by eldest sons.
The non-allodial barony, whether original or created, is of small value because it descends to all sons and daughters of the male line.

 Wikipedia: Peerage
Writs of summons have not been used for such a purpose for centuries, the preferred method being letters patent, which explicitly confer the dignity and name the mode of inheritance, which can be anything the Sovereign pleases.
A writ may only be granted if the title being accelerated is a subsidiary one, and not the main title, and if the beneficiary of the writ is the heir-apparent of the actual holder of the title.
The only individual who recently held a title by writ of acceleration at present is Viscount Cranborne, the Barony of Cecil of Essendon actually being held by the Marquess of Salisbury.

An examination of the early writs e is sued to individuals shows that the baronage con g sisted of archbishops, bishops, abbots, priors, earls and barons.
Even as late as 1663 we find the Crown, naturally with the concurrence of its legal advisers, stating in the barony of Lucas patent (1663) that, on the appearance of co-heirs to a barony, the honour may be suspended or extinguished at the royal pleasure.
In the first case the writ of summons is issued forthwith, but the second, being one of abeyance, is a matter for the pleasure of the Crown, which need not be exercised at all, but, if exercised, may terminate the abeyance in favour of any one of the co-heirs.

When a barony, however, is vested in a lady it is now the recognized custom to speak of her as baroness, e.g.
The solemn investiture of barons created by patent was performed by the king himself, by enrobing the peer in the scarlet "robe of estate" during the reading of the patent, and this form continued till 13 Jac.
Sometimes also (as in the case of the barony of Rayleigh, 1821) the dignity is bestowed upon a lady with remainder to the heirs-male of her body.

 Earl of Thanet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1678 the 3rd Earl successfully claimed the Barony of Clifford, a Barony by Writ created in 1299, which had been dormant since the death of the 3rd Earl of Cumberland in 1605.
However, on the death of the 6th Earl this title fell into abeyance between his five daughters (it was called out of abeyance in 1734 for the third daughter, Margaret).
The Baronetcy, Barony of Tufton and Earldom of Thanet became extinct on the death of the 11th Earl in 1849.

 Scottish feudal baronies (feudal barons, feudal baron) including the oath of a knight
Since a barony was legally attached to the caput rather than the lands, a baron could (and sometimes did) dispose of the lands but if he retained the caput (or the feudal superiority of the caput) he also retained the barony, that is the jurisdiction.
The doctrine of baronies by writ was not 'ascertained' until the Clifton case in 1674 but was later applied retrospectively to writs of summons issued from 1264, when the first sitting of Parliament was (incorrectly) deemed to have taken place.
Feudal baronies are baronies by tenure, i.e., by possession of the pertinent land.

The petitioner never suggested that a Barony by Writ could have been created in him if he was there by virtue of his election.
The creation of a Barony by Writ could have arisen only if he ceased to have the right to sit by virtue of his election and he sat by virtue of his Writ of Summons.
If the noble Lord, Lord Monkswell, is arguing that they were representing nobody and they were representing themselves, then a continued Writ of Summons being received each time that there was a new parliament would seem to suggest that there is a strong case for arguing that a Barony by Writ has been created.

Their grandfather Adam Everingham had been summoned to Parliament in 1309, which in modern peerage law is held to amount to creation of a barony 'by writ'.
Any such barony would by legal doctrine be (as you know) in abeyance between those two coheirs and their respective representatives, until and unless the Crown terminates the abeyance in favour of one of them.
Mr Waterton-Anderson may have applied to have the abeyance terminated in his favour but if he were to do so he would not be successful, since the abeyance of baronies by writ is not terminated nowadays when it has lasted for more than a century.

They did not sit by accident which created the question of a Barony by Writ, although I may say here that, with all the precedents of Baronies by Writ which had been perhaps created by accident, there had always been an intention to create a peerage.
A petition for a Writ of Summons to this House is not a petition directed to your Lordships: it is a petition to the Queen.

At the very time that the last Grey of Codnor sold Stoke his family were holding two marquisates, three earldoms, two viscounties, and five baronies, besides claiming certain ties of blood with Edward IV, King of England.
We have before us a pile of genealogies, in which we can trace that they allied themselves with the baronial houses of Chaworth, Talbot, and Frecheville; with the Cokaynes, Eyres, Strelleys, Foljambes, Hardwicks, Meverells, and Beresfords; but the compilers of Derbyshire history are silent about them.
