Burke's Peerage gets a shake up

Burke's Peerage and Gentry is to get a radical overhaul. For the first time in 173 years it is to include illegitimate children, and from now on will list children in the order that they were born, rather than eldest male first. In addition the book will also include the names of children and grandchildren for daughters listed.

The full story is in yesterday's
Daily Mail.
