what does the 5º B. mean?

ex #2

Humphrey LEE of Langley (1º Bt.)

what does the 1º Bt mean?

ex #3

Walter WROTTESLEY (Sir Knight)

John TALBOT (Sir)

Hi, I guess, that 5th Baron, 1st Baronet, etc. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baronet).

It's a generational thing. When one baron dies the barony passes (through the male line usually) to the next surviving heir: ie 1st --> 2nd --> 3rd, etc.

It is probably just a mis-transcription of a title - for information on knights and their titles see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knighthood

There is a non-heraldic title of 'Sir Knight' used by the Knights Templar organisation http://www.templarhistory.com/index.html but this is probably not what is being referenced.
