    2. I think it's similar to how you would use the title of Queen. You can say," I'm a queen" and someone would ask," Queen of what?" You can be a queen of something very small, or you can be the Queen of England! So I think the term "countess" refers to a title other than just someone's wife.

    2. Apparently not unless they are married. The unmarried daughters of Marquess and Earls are called "the lady" and of viscounts and barons they are called "The Honourable."

The earl's daughter, The Lady Ann Belle, and the viscounts daughter, The Honourable Lyn Smith are good friends.
