Baron or Baronet?[edit]

The page name and the opening sentence of this article suggest that Hercules Robinson was a Baron, whereas subsequent text mentions, over two places, that he was actually made a Baronet. Which one is true? Anyone can verify?

Sorry to have overlooked the section Second Term as Governor of South Africa, which has explained the matter already.

The peerage doesn't become extinct until 1933 so there must have been at least one heir who succeeded. Alci12 16:33, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Gazette references[edit]

  • search resulsts on full name This should providing good referencing for his official appoinments and honours. probably also need to search on initials and last name, and using title for later appointments. David Underdown (talk) 13:32, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Chinese name[edit]

The article lists his Chinese name because that's what he was known by during his time in Hong Kong. Ivar the Boneful, I suggest that this edit summary is inappropriate. Schwede66 20:06, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
