Baron Raby


Baron Raby

There have been two creations of the title Baron Raby, both in the Peerage of England. The first was in 1640, as a subsidiary title of the Earl of Strafford (first creation). The first earl was attainted and his peerages declared forfeit in 1641, but heir obtained a reversal in 1662. On his death, all his peerages became extinct save the Barony of Raby, which continued until the death of the fifth baron in 1799. Confusingly, the third baron was again created Earl of Strafford in 1711, and the earldom and barony remained merged until their mutual extinction.

The title was created a second time in 1833 in the Peerage of the United Kingdom as a subsidiary title of the Duke of Cleveland (second creation). This creation became extinct in 1891 on the death of the fourth duke.
