Can someone please help me out?

I am having difficulty finding some straight answers to a few questions of mine.
The fact is that I know very little about the Regency. I would like to know what the deal is with the whole title thing. For example, in P&P, we have Colonel Fitzwilliam. Colonel Fitzwilliam is the son of an Earl. His father is frequently called the Earl of Matlock. Is this a place? A town . . . somewhere? He is frequently called Lord _______ (Lord Wallingford, on a few occasions). Yet his name is Fitzwilliam. Somebody help me out here, I'm confused . . .
