End of the line for peers
A total of 92 hereditaries will remain in the reformed chamber
The hereditaries were chosen in an election, the first in the Lords' history.
Under a compromise deal, the peers will remain in the transitional upper chamber until longer-term reform is completed.
The reform ends hundreds of years of tradition of unelected peers sitting in the second chamber of the UK's Parliament to scrutinise legislation.
For both elections, peers had to write personal manifestos of not more than 75 words.
The peers will represent their parties in the reformed chamber, and include 42 from the Conservatives, 18 from the crossbenches, three Liberal Democrats and two from Labour.
He said: "For those who won it is no cause for celebration, it is an honour.
"For those who lost it is no cause for shame."
The Earl of Onslow, who promised to behave like a "football hooligan" during the reform of the upper chamber, was also elected.
Last week 15 hereditary peers were elected to remain in the chamber as deputy speakers and committee chairmen.
This week, 10 hereditaries were given life peerages so they could remain in the reformed House.
