Bartholomew de Burghersh, 2nd Baron Burghersh

Bartholomew de Burghersh, 2nd Baron Burghersh (bef. 1329 – April 5, 1369) was an English nobleman and soldier.

Bartholomew first bore arms in the War of the Breton Succession, in the expedition of 1345. He fought as a knight banneret in the division of the Prince of Wales at the Battle of Crécy (1346) and was present at the Siege of Calais (1347). In 1348, he was one of the twenty-five Founder Knights of the Order of the Garter. He was made constable of Wallingford Castle in 1351.

He succeeded his father as Baron Burghersh in 1355. Continuing in the French wars, he was with the Black Prince in his chevauchée of 1356, and held off a French ambush outside Romorantin, a battle which ended in the capture of that city. The campaign ended with the Battle of Poitiers, wherein he captured the Count of Ventadour. He also served in the unsuccessful expedition of 1359.
