Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

were there any knights or dukes or other British titles that were associated with places in what would become the USA? Such as Duke of Boston, or Baron of Virginia

Provost of Provo

A:

Dear Provo(st),

I couldn't find any barons, dukes, or lords, but there were several american knights before the revolution! One of the most prominent examples was Sir William Franklin. Sir William Franklin was the illegitimate son of Benjamin Franklin, was a titled knight, and was the last colonial Governor of New Jersey. He remained loyal to the crown and after the war he was exiled to England. 

There were some other knights, but it seems that there were very few because the american colonies were so far away from London that it was hard for colonists to relieve the attention of Parliament or lobby for knighthood. 

Peace,

Tipperary
