How to Address a Viscount or Viscountess

Examples:

NOTE: When a viscountcy’s name has the compound form ‘(name one) of (name two)’, use the viscountcy’s name in the following way: When (complete name) is called for, use (name one) of (name two), when (name) is called for, use only (name one).

For example, Viscount Colville of Culross is addressed as Lord Colville in conversation. The given name of the titled person is never used.

When Should You Use the Forms on this Page?

You can use these forms of address for any mode of communication: addressing a letter, invitation, card or Email. (If there are differences between the official and social forms of address, I will have mentioned the different forms.)  The form noted in the salutation is the same form you say when you say their name in conversation or when you greet them.

Not Finding Your Answer?

—-#1)  At right on desktops, at the bottom of every page on tablets and phones, is a list of all the offices, officials & topics covered on the site.

—-#2)  If you don’t see the official you seek included or your question answered send me an e-mail. I am pretty fast at sending a reply: usually the next day or so (unless I am traveling.)  Note: I don’t have mailing or Email addresses for any of the officials and I don’t keep track of offices that exist only in history books.

—-#3)  If I think your question is of interest to others, Sometimes I post the question  – but always change all the specifics.
