Yes.  Count Thorbrandr Olafsson and Sir AElfred of Cres for instance are
both Knights and Masters of the Laurel.  Earl Dafydd ap Gwystl is
Knight, Laurel and Pelican.

As far as the numbers being less precise, I don't think so.  We're
discussing recognition and acceptance.  Dafydd had to be accepted as did
any other candidate for each of his peerages.

If the discussion was simply, "How many peers?" then the numbers would
be slightly off.
