These are the newly announced subsidiary titles of the as-predicted
Dukedom of Sussex conferred upon Prince Henry of Wales.
Neither has existed before.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

You are correct concerning the title of Baron Kilkeel. However, at least according to Wikipedia, there was a previous creation of Earl of Dumbarton. It was first created on 9 March 1675 by King Charles II for Lord George Douglas as a reward for his military service to Scotland. It became extinct in 1749 upon the death of the first earl's son.

According to Burke's and Leigh Rayment,the previous earldom
was spelled "Dunbarton",though after the new one was created
Rayment merged his entries into one "Dumbarton/Dunbarton".

(Apparently the town is spelled Dumbarton and its county Dunbartonshire).
