If you sit in the house of Lords you'll be summonded as Baron surname but styled Lord surname and the term Baron is not used. If there's already another parlimentary Baron with the same surname they'll then be summoned as Baron surname of xxx and styled Lord surname of xxx. Having inherited my own titles of nobility I can style myself as David surname Baron of xxx or Baron surname of xxx. Never should I style myself as simply Baron surname.
One other thing - Wikipedia is not an acurate source of information.......!
I must reply and clarify what I meant. For a start I have investigated my UK historical information very closely when it comes to titles and the use of them for years and I certaily do have my facts right. I cannot tell you how to ''style yourself'', you can style yourself Santa Clause if you want.
Barons, unless they are feudel baronies are styled as Lord x. When referring to the 6th Baron Byron for example we don't say Lord Byron of Rochdale in the County Palatine of Lancaster. We call him Lord Byron. (To use a famous example of a Baron).
Of course every peerage and even baronetcies have territorial designations, but a a peer is not styled using that. Barons are usually styled on an everyday basis as Lord X. Not Lord of X. Feudal baronies are an exeption, they are different, and they are often Baron X of X. They are Scottish feudal baronies.
And as for Wikipedia, which I didn't even mention in my former post: Considering it has millions of articles, billions of pieces of informaton and billions of words on it, it is extemely silly and wrong to say that it is not considered an accurate source of information. If you want to find the basics out about something it is an extemely useful source, Wikipedia is the curious person's friend. Of course there are some inaccuracies on it, but mostly it is all written in good faith using reputable sources and contains mostly facts which are often rigorously debated, so quit bashing wikipedia, it's so annoying.
