note

there is some confusion over whether Richard FitzAlan was created Earl of Sussex or Earl of Arundel in 1289, given that John [de Warren], Earl of Surrey, arguably the greatest noble of his time, was also receiving writs of summons directed to him as Earl of Sussex;  certainly a few years later in 1291/2 and 1295 Richard FitzAlan is being summoned to Parliament as Earl of Arundel;  in a decision of 1433 the Crown acknowledged that, uniquely, the Earldom of Arundel was an earldom by tenure but it might or might not be significant that the FitzAlans did nothing to assert their right to the Earldom until after the death of the Dowager Countess of Arundel in 1282

Thomas [Howard], 23rd or 16th Earl of Arundel, 6th Earl of Surrey and 3rd Earl of Norfolk later 5th Duke of Norfolk

note

restored to the Dukedom of Norfolk as 5th Duke of Norfolk 29 Dec 1660 by Act of Parliament with the original precedence of his ancestor, John [Howard], 1st Duke of Norfolk

 

The Earldom of Arundel and other honours entailed therewith by the Act of Parliament of 1627, have been merged with the Dukedom of Norfolk since 29 Dec 1660, the 5th Duke of Norfolk and each of his successors being heir male of the body of Thomas [Howard], 21st or 14th Earl of Arundel, on which class of heirs the first limitation is made.  If, however, these heirs male were to become extinct, then the Earldom of Arundel, etc., would pass under the second remainder of the entail of 1627 to the heirs general of the body of the said Thomas and would consequently become separated from the Dukedom of Norfolk, and could only become re-united therewith on the failure of such heirs general, when the third limitation would take effect.
