The Order is the sixth-most senior in the British honours system, after The Most Noble Order of the Garter, The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, The Most Illustrious Order of St Patrick, The Most Honourable Order of the Bath, and The Most Exalted Order of the Star of India.
The Usher of the Order is known as the Gentleman Usher of the Blue Rod; he does not, unlike his Order of the Garter equivalent (the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod), perform any duties related to the House of Lords.
The original home of the Order was the Palace of St Michael and St George in Corfu, the residence of the Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands and the seat of the Ionian Senate.

 New Zealand order of precedence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Order of Precedence in New Zealand was approved by the Queen Elizabeth II on 9 January 1974, and amended to include former Governors-General on 10 September 1981.
While the Queen herself is not listed in the order of precedence, as Queen of New Zealand she holds the highest precedence in New Zealand.
No express precedence is accorded to members of the Royal Family, and their precedence when they visit New Zealand is generally derived from the practice in the United Kingdom.

 Order of Precedence in England and Wales
Precedence existed in pre-Conquest times: an Anglo-Saxon document states that "in the laws of the English, people and law went by ranks." The Conquest presumably resulted in the introduction of precedence as it was practiced at the court of Normandy, just as titles and offices were imported by the victors.
However, the Order of 1520 was held in high regard, and was adopted by the commissioners for executing the office of Earl Marshal in 1595 when they were asked by Elizabeth I to inquire into place and precedence.
House of Lords Precedence Act 1539 and the Ordinance of 1595, both of which were to a large extent codifying current practice, form the canvass of the order of precedence.

Orders concerning private bills and public bills originating in the Senate as well as orders for the consideration of any subsequent stages of a bill already considered during Private Members' Business are not affected by the draw, but are automatically placed at the bottom of the order of precedence.
As noted below, most items are dropped from the order of precedence altogether after consideration for an hour; others, however, are retained in the order of precedence and, after first consideration, are placed at the bottom of the list to await their turn for subsequent consideration.
Such motions, if drawn for inclusion on the order of precedence, need not be selected as "votable" items, since the Standing Orders specify that they must receive a total of one hour and forty minutes of consideration, at the end of which time the Speaker puts the question.

It was intended to reward "natives of the Ionian Islands and of the island of Malta and its dependencies, and for such other subjects of his majesty as may hold high and confidential situations in the Mediterranean."
The Order's basis was revised in 1868; membership was granted to those who "hold high and confidential offices within Her Majesty's colonial possessions, and in reward for services rendered to the Crown in relation to the foreign affairs of the Empire."
The original home of the Order was the Palace of St Michael and St George, the residence of the Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands and the seat of the Ionian Senate.

The father appealed against that part of the judge's order fixing conditions on the ground that it was an impermissible review of the substance of the foreign court's decision, contrary to art 9(3) of the Convention.
As to the father's appeal, art 11(2) was to be given a liberal interpretation in order to achieve the overriding objectives of the Convention, one of which was to ensure that relocation did not avoid the orders for contact made by the court which gave permission to relocate.

 section 2.12: Precedence and Order of Evaluation
Note that precedence is not the same thing as order of evaluation.
Precedence determines how an expression is parsed, and it has an influence on the order in which parts of it are evaluated, but the influence isn't as strong as you'd think.
Parentheses override precedence and say which operands go with which operators, and they therefore affect the overall meaning of an expression, but they don't say anything about the order of subexpressions or side effects.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Precedence
In canon law the general rule is that precedence is determined by rank in the hierarchy both of jurisdiction and of order.
The order of precedence is regulated as follows: the pope always takes first rank, after him come cardinals, patriarchs, archbishops, exempt bishops, suffragan bishops, titular bishops, and prelates nullius.
In these categories priority of ordination and promotion determines precedence, among bishops or archbishops the date of their first promotion to the episcopal or archiepiscopal dignity.

 Precedence vs. Order of Evaluation
This is now an order of evaluation question, and it turns out that one of the first things to think of whenever you have an order of evaluation question is that there's a good chance that the answer does not involve precedence.
Here, although there's definitely an order of evaluation issue, and although the order of evaluation is apparently influenced by the precedence somehow, the influence is actually not a direct one.
The real constraint on the order of evaluation is that we obviously can't complete an addition which involves the result of the multiplication until we've got the result of that multiplication.

Order of evaluation is affected by much more than "precedence rules"; precedence affects order of evaluation much less than many people think.
The shape of the tree may determine the ordering of some of the instructions, and precedence affects the shape of the tree.
But the order of some operations may not even be strictly determined by the shape of the tree, let alone the precedence.

 Order of Operations Lesson - I
But we can't have this kind of flexibility in mathematics; math won't work if you can't be sure of the answer, or if the exact same problem can calculate to two or more different answers.
To eliminate this confusion, we have some rules of precedence called "order of operations", the "operations" being addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, and grouping.
A common technique for remembering the order of operations is the abbreviation "PEMDAS", which is turned into the phrase "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" (or, as my husband prefers, "Purple Elephants May Destroy A School").

to specify the order of the ancestors of C. The list of the ancestors of a class C, including the class itself, ordered from the nearest ancestor to the furthest, is called the class precedence list or the linearization of C.

Notice that the class E, which is in the second level of the hierarchy, precedes the class C, which is in the first level of the hierarchy, i.e.
