Also some clarification for Opinion #1 krab,
Lady Fellowes, the 2nd elder sister of Diana, Princess of Wales, can NO LONGER be called Lady Jane because her husband was raised to become a peer so she is now a peeress and has to use that title, instead of being Lady Jane which was a courtesy title.
Ironically, when a daughter of a peer of higher rank marries a peer of lower rank, she takes her name, rank, and precedence according to her new peeress status, which could possibly be LOWER than her original rank and precedence she took as courtesy from her father.
However, when a daughter of a peer of marries a commoner (some who is not a peer), she gets to keep her name, rank, and precedence according to her fathers status.
Consequently, Lady Sarah McCorquodale (a daughter of an Earl married to a commoner, Neil Edmund McCorquodale) retains a higher rank and precedence than her sister, Jane, Lady Fellowes (a daughter of an Earl married to a Baron).
However, had Jane married a Viscount instead of a Baron, as a Viscountess, she would have been ranked higher and preceded Sarah.
