- Baron Rayleigh
Baron Rayleigh, of Terling Place in the County of Essex, is a title in the
Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1821 for Lady Charlotte Strutt, wife of Colonel Joseph Holden Strutt, Member of Parliamentfor Maldon and a member of an Essex family that had made its fortune in the milling business. Joseph Strutt had earlier declined the offer of a peerage, and instead proposed that the honour be given to his wife. Lady Rayleigh was the daughter of James FitzGerald, 1st Duke of Leinster, and his wife Lady Emily Mary Lennox, the second of the famous Lennox sisters. Her elder brother was Charles FitzGerald, 1st Baron Lecaleand her younger brother was Lord Edward FitzGerald. Lady Rayleigh's grandson, the third Baron, was a noted physicist and Nobel Prizerecipient. The latter's son, the fourth Baron, was also a well-known physicist. As of 2007 the title is held by his grandson, the sixth Baron, who succeeded his uncle in 1988.
