That's a useful starting number but then we need to look at the number
that are actually active or still in Kingdom or whatever.  I skimmed the
A's (hey, I'm at work and they actually expect me to get stuff done) and
I was able to spot 3 Pelicans, 6 Laurels and 3 Knights who are listed in
the OP but no longer play or are no longer in Atlantia or are never seen
except once in a blue moon.

So the actual numbers are probably much lower.  When I did my 'off the
cuff' count for Peers north and south of the proposed principality area,
I came up with about 15 each, north & south, and that doesn't include
the half-dozen/8 that are in Caer Mear/Isenfir.  But, being Statistics
Woman, lessee:

Active or mostly active...

Laurels: James, Daniel, Dafydd, Igor, Fevronia, Volodimir, Allasondrea,
Deirdre, Keilyn, Melisande, Caterina, Baudoin, Teleri, Niall, Gyrth,
Jeanne, Chirhart, Tristan, Thorbrandr, Anne, Celynen, Jaelle, Aelfred,
Maelgwn, Helen, Thjora, Geoffrey, Grace, Snaeulf (formerly Ross), Shrew,
Terafan, Robyyan, Branwynn, Isobel, Michael, Seonaid, Aelfred, Judith,
Rebekah, Brok, Clare, Eldrid, Magnus, Vortigern, Tannis

Xenophon, Thorbrandr, Amalric, Corby, Iain, Bertrand, Michael, Quentin,
Godfried, Gunther, William, Duncan, Logan, Timoch, Keegan, Anton, Cuan,
Aelfred, Fern, Otto, Steffan, Wulfbrand, Richard, Christian, Tancred,
Kai, Edwyn, Douglas, Havordh, Volodimir, Tnek, Shinowassee (whatever his
new name is....),

Elizabeth, Aryanna, Kiri, Philip, Rose, Herveus, Jaelle, Adelicia, Bran,
Fern, Anne, Malcolm, Judith, Thomas, Adendra, Isbella, Ceridwen, Cara,
Lorna, Valdemar (? on activity), Tannis, Tnek, Megara

Plus I know there are a couple of  Knight/Laurel couples that have moved

So thats:

Laurels: 45
Knights: 39
Pelicans: 29

I've probably missed a couple, but not many. 

And in answer to Anne's post in between, yes, there are some overlaps.
