Basically, a Grant of Arms allows the receipient to designate him/herself
as the Honorable Lord/Lady SoandSo and gives them precedence immediately
behind Court Barons/Baronesses and immediately before the AoA level awards
(of which the grace awards carry the most precedence). The White Scarves
(who are called Don/Don~a) were recently made a polling order. I am not
sure if this is the case for the Centurions -- as Lorraine pointed out, it
is a new order and most of us are still a bit confused about it.
