Given in the examples where? Page 6 of the Achievement Guidelines
<http://herald.ansteorra.org/publications.php> offers an example that
says, in part, "A few years after the White Scarf, Don Iago was made
a Court Baron. With this noble title, His Excellency received not
only a coronet and a beautiful charter in court, but is now entitled
to a new achievement scroll with arms, baronial coronet, helm,
livery, crest, and supporters."

Again, what list? That's not the way it is on the "Honors of
Ansteorra" page on the College of Heralds' site <http://
herald.ansteorra.org/honors/>. "Barony in Fief" and "Court Barony"
are both under "Nobility".

Yes. (That's explicit in the quote from the Achievement Guidelines I

An example on page 7 of the Achievement Guidelines says, "Two years
later, he was invested as the Baron of Namron, and is entitled to the
special charter of a Baron in Fief; however, he is not yet entitled
to a new achievement scroll." Since one is entitled to a new
achievement scroll each time one becomes entitled to and registers a
new achievement, that a barony in fief doesn't carry achievements
with it is implicit in this statement.
