How to address an Earl:

The rank of an earl corresponds to that of a count. Hence the wife of an earl is still called countess.

An earl has the title Earl followed by place of holding (Earl of Warwick), or Earl Roberte Riche when the title comes from a surname. In either case, he is referred to as Lord, and his wife as Lady.


How to address a Knight:

In feudal times, a Knight or Dame (if female) was men-at-arms, foot soldiers, and archers. They admitted to a certain military rank with special ceremonies, including a code of chivalry, an oath to protect the distressed, maintain the right, and live a stainless life.

To be addressed as Sir; as, Sir Roberte. A female knight is to be addressed as Dame followed by first name (Dame Jennete), Dame followed by first and last name (Dame Jennete Charbonneaux), but never by just the last name (Dame Charbonneaux).
