 Errors in Burke's Peerage
In the entry of Lord Claud Hamilton he is given the title of 1st Baron Paisley, and this is explained as being granted with the barony of Paisley on 29 July 1587.
Lord Claud, as a younger son of a Duke (the Duke of Chatellerault, a French dukedom), took precedence of a Viscount, and sat in the Scots Parliament as Lord of Paisley both before and after his peerage title of Lord Paisley was bestowed on him.
Burke's Peerage does correctly use "Henry, 3rd Lord Sinclair" in the Sinclair entry, but describes his wife Margaret as the daughter of the 1st Earl of Bothwell, whereas she was the daughter of the Master of Hailes, father of the 1st Earl, and was thus the sister, not the daughter, of the 1st Earl.

Usually, part of the manor, known as the demesne, was retained by the lord for his own profit, while the remainder was granted to tenants in return either for rent or for services such as cultivating his demesne and attending the manorial court.
Lords could dispose of their villeins, just like other items of property, and ownership was also transferred as manors were bought and sold.
Although a lord protected his villeins (like any of his valuable possessions), villeinage was a form of slavery that gave those bound very few rights and their quality of life depended on the benevolence of his rule.

Parliament was another of the king's councils, though its role in government was less well defined than the privy council's and its summoning was intermittent.
In the early 17th century Parliament was less an institution than an event; it was convened when the king sought the aid of his subjects in the process of creating new laws or to provide extraordinary revenue.
Members of Parliament served the dual function of representing the views of the localities to the king and of representing the views of the king to the localities.

 Peerage of Scotland@Everything2.com
During the first half of the fifteenth century, a number of these barons came to be regarded as in possession of the personal dignity of 'Lord of Parliament', and these Lords of Parliament, or greater Barons (Barones majores) came to be distinguished from the mere feudal Barons, known as the lesser barons (Barones minores).
One of the curiosities of Scottish Law was that the eldest son of a peer could also be a Lord of Parliament and thus entitled to take a seat in the Scottish Parliament under one of his father's subsidiary titles.
The heirs apparent of Scottish Earls, Marquesses and Viscounts were therefore to be found sitting alongside their fathers in the Scottish Parliament but it also had the curious effect of preventing the eldest sons of Scottish peers from sitting in the House of Commons for Scottish constituencies after the Act of Union.

Parliament could be prorogued for a relatively long time and the legislative process could be delayed for an extended period.
My Lords, we are at one on the question of effective pre-legislative scrutiny, but where I am bound to differ from the amendment is that it makes it quite clear that there is an obligation on Parliament with regard to this situation, which I am bound to have difficulties in accepting.
It would be for Parliament to make its decisions on what it required as time for proper pre-legislative scrutiny; it is not a matter for us to put in a Bill—and therefore an Act—given the fact that different circumstances and different orders might lead to different considerations as far as Parliament is concerned.

All women in the House of Lords are amongst the Lords Temporal; the Church of England does not presently permit the consecration of female bishops, though this issue is currently under consideration, with many observers expecting female bishops in the near future.T. May, 1st Baron.

However, the Militia Act of 1661 vested control of the armed forces in the Crown, and Parliament agreed to an annual revenue of £1,200,000 (a persistent deficit of £400,000-500,000 remained, leading to difficulties for Charles in his foreign policy).
In the face of an Anglican Parliament's opposition, Charles was eventually forced to withdraw the Declaration in 1673.
Parliament's reaction to the Popish Plot of 1678 (an allegation by Titus Oates that Jesuit priests were conspiring to murder the King, and involving the Queen and the Lord Treasurer, Danby) was to impeach Danby and present a Bill to exclude James (Charles's younger brother and a Roman Catholic convert) from the succession.

 Maxwell
About 1445, Sir Herbert Maxwell of Caerlaverock was created a Lord of Parliament, and in 1455, on the forfeiture of the Douglases, he was granted Eskdale and Carlisle, the second title being somewhat dubious as Carlisle remained steadfastly in English hands.
In 1513, John the fourth Lord Maxwell and three of his brothers fell at Floddon, and he was succeeded by his eldest son Robert who grew to be one of the most prominent and ablest men of his age.
It was this Lord Maxwell who introduced and secured the bill in the parliament of 1542 that gave the Scottish people the right to possess and read the Bible in the common tongue.
