  Viscount - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A viscount is a member of the European nobility whose comital title ranks usually, as in the British peerage, above a baron, below an earl (in Britain) or a count (his continental equivalent).
The word viscount corresponds in Britain to the Anglo-Saxon shire reeve (root of the non-nobiliary, royal-appointed office of Sheriff).
In any event, the style of a viscount is "The Viscount X," or "The Viscount X of Y." Examples include: The Viscount Falmouth (placename); The Viscount Hardinge (surname); The Viscount Gage of Castle Island (surname of placename); and The Viscount Combermere of Bhurtpore (placename of placename).

The Viscount design consists of a circular crunchy, slightly gritty biscuit base, with a small disc shaped blob of minty cream on top all covered in a fairly useful milk chocolate.
Viscounts of old were highly regular affairs with their cream filling extending very close to the biscuit edge but today's Viscount seems to a bit chucked together.

 GLOSSARY - BURKE'S GUIDE TO BRITISH TITLES   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The word derives from the Latin vice-comes, or deputy to a comes (early equivalent of count), and in the British Isles was in early times used to refer to the Sheriff of a county, the earl (Anglo-Saxon equivalent of a count) of that county being then its chief administrative officer, appointed by the Crown.
Viscount only began to be used as a peerage honour in the 15th century, and is in fact the most recent addition to the ranks of the peerage (2).
Unlike viscounts in the English peerage, those in the Scottish peerage, the first of whom was Fentoun, so created in 1606, were known as 'Viscount of Blank', even where 'Blank' was a family name rather than a place.
