Baron Kingsale

Baron Kingsale is a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It dates to the thirteenth century, perhaps being created circa 1223, though other sources give different dates. The first creation was by writ. The title was officially confirmed by letters patent in 1397. The numbering of the barons varies, some sources including the holders of the ancient barony, others commencing with the barons confirmed by letters patent.

The Baron also holds the feudal titles of Lord Courcy and Lord Ringrone, probably created in the twelfth century. Several sources claim that the Baron holds the privilege of being covered (that is, wearing a hat) in the presence of the monarch. The Eleventh Edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica, however, disagrees, claiming that the story "is a legend without historic foundation".[1]
