No, they're not, unless I am badly misinformed. Canton officers
report thru the barony, which means that baronial officers approve
applications and can remove canton officers.

If a canton is not a barony, "baron of ___" doesn't work.

I'm only familiar with English practice. When a fief goes vacant, the
title is called "extinct". If someone else is given that title, it's
then a new creation, with a new remainder, inheritance that does not
go past the new lord and the heirs of his body, et cetera. When the
king of the UK inherits a fief within the kingdom, or holds a UK title
and inherits the throne, it is absorbed into the royal titles and not
used. [*] If you know of the practice anywhere else in period, please
looks unreliable: the English monarch abjured the title of Duke of
Normandy in the Treaty of Paris of 1259.
