It would actually be moved considerably closer to correct if we just  
acknowledged the fact that an 'Award of Arms' -- the right to inheritable armory  
-- raises you to the Gentry, makes you a Gentleman or Gentlewoman, as 
opposed to  the Yeomanry or Peasantry, and the titles Lord and Lady should be 
reserved to  the Nobility -- landed Baronys and higher.  Baronets are 
post-period, but  Court Baronys are a close approximation, and Baronets are also 
merely  Gentry.
Given that, the approximation would actually be fairly  close.

I've always found that one to be a head-scratcher,  too.
