    Not a lot. Essex was Master-General of the Ordnance ( a military position)  AND Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.

    Possessor of the Proudest Cod-Piece is a bit too flashy, even for dashing thirty-year-olds.

    Actually, it doesn't really mean anything at all. It's from a government form that was given out to people to complete if they wanted to apply for the position of "Queen's Favourite" in the olden days. You had to score out the bits of that phrase that didn't apply to you........ lord, lieutenant, general and, of course, you had to score out the "England" part if you weren't from England and replace it with your own country (say, "China"). Hope this helped.

    The "general" bit means top man of that rank.
