The Windsors / Question about peerage and step-children/adoption....
« on: September 15, 2007, 03:19:27 AM »
I have always been facsinated by the british peerage and I felt that this might be a good forum to get a few questions answered, since everyone seems to really know what they are talking about.

Here we go:

Let's say a woman of no rank marries a man of no rank and they have 2 children (a girl and a boy).  The man dies and the woman manages to snag a titled peer (the first husband was wealthy, but not titled...).  Would her children take the precedence of their biological father or their new step-father?

Also, what about adoption?  I assume that it did happen on occasion, when a titled peer would adopt a child.  Would that child be elevated with a curtesy title?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer my question or point me in the right direction!!
