Nobility can be inherited or earned. Georg Ludwig Trapp served in World War I as a U-boat commander. His exploits on the battle earned him his Austrian nobility. It also helped that he married a very rich heiress, Agatha Whitehead. Together they had 7 children before his wife died. It was in 1926 that he hired a tutor for one of his sick daughters, Maria Kutschera, whom he married in 1927 and had 3 more children. So, the movie isn't exactly true to the actual events as many years passed before they left Austria in 1938. Georg Ritter von Trapp lost most of his fortunes when the banks of Austria collapsed.
If his name is Georg Ritter von Trapp, then he is not a Baron, but a knight; i.e. the second lowest rank of nobility, which are Lower nobility:
von... nobel Ritter von.... Knight Freiherr von... Baron (Baron as a title does not exist in original German nomenclature, even the famous "Red Baron" was not a Baron, but a Freiherr) Higher nobility: Graf von... Count Herzog von... Duke Royal Houses Imperial Houses
