I certainly didn't mean to imply that it did.  What I found confusing was why these
individuals were obviously noticed by Crown for their service to their Barony, but
find it odd that 2 out of 3 did not get Baronial level awards.  You would think that
their work would first be noticed by the Barony and then the Kingdom as you suggest.
To get a Kingdom award and not a Baronial award (ever) seems really strange.
Certainly makes it seem like the awards are not clear in their criteria at some level
(Kingdom or Baronial) in at least the cases I mention or that there were other factors
at work (which, if either, or both, I'm not qualified to say since I was nowhere near
the people during the time the awards were made).  Just very strange overall.
