What is the lowest grade of British peerage?

Baron It should be noted also that: In Scotland, a Baron is called a Lord of Parliament There are five categories of British peerage and they have a hierarchy themselves: 1. Peerage of England 2. Peerage of Scotland 3. Peerage of Ireland 4. Peerage of Great Britain 5. Peerage of United Kingdom Also peerages are ranked based on creation date. Therefore a Baron of the United Kingdom is a lower grade than a Baron of England, and the lower of two Baronies of the United Kingdom would be the one created most recently. Hope that edit helps!
