"A review of the Award Constitutions shows a Court Barony listed with the Grant Orders in the Table of Contents but the actual constitution entry is missing in the document online."

Yep, that's right, Society-wide Orders and titles are NOT listed in the Ansteorran Constitutions document.  I felt no need to replicate Corpora.

And, for the record and in answer to a question that Daniel asked months ago while ALL THREE top precedence heralds in the kingdom who could have answered his question were out of kingdom at Gulf Wars....

The Order of March for the Kingdom of Ansteorra was most recently signed by Seamus and Karlanna in their second reign, 1987.  The proper Order of March is NOT the same thing that has been being passed off as the Order of March for the past 10-15 years.  What has been being passed off as the Order of March is more properly called "A Guide to Codes and Abbreviations Used in the Ansteorran Order of Precedence", as it includes non-armigerous awards and orders, which, since they by constitution have no precedence, don't, well, **march**.

Herewith the proper Order of March for the Kingdom of Ansteorra as it has stood since the second reign of Seamus and Karlanna and the tenure of Adelicia as Star Principal Herald, substantively unchanged since first set down by Lloyd and Jocelyn in their first reign and the tenure of Aureliane as Star Principal Herald (with explanations and updated information in [brackets]):
