Baron Chetwode

Baron Chetwode

Baron Chetwode, of Chetwode in the County of Buckingham, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1945 for the noted military commander Field Marshal Sir Philip Chetwode, 7th Baronet. As of 2010 the titles are held by his grandson, the second Baron, who succeeded in 1950. He is the eldest son of Captain Roger Charles George Chetwode, who was killed in the Second World War.

The Baronetcy, of Oakley in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 6 April 1700 for the first Baron's great-great-great-great-grandfather John Chetwode, of Oakley Hall, Staffordshire. His great-grandson, the fourth Baronet, represented Newcastle-under-Lyme and Buckingham in the House of Commons. His son, the fifth Baronet, married Elizabeth Juliana Newdigate-Ludford, daughter of John Newdigate-Ludford, and in 1826 he assumed by Royal license the additional surnames of Newdigate-Ludford. He was succeeded by his nephew, the sixth Baronet. He was a Colonel in the Army. On the latter's death in 1905 the title passed to his son, the aforementioned seventh Baronet, who was elevated to the peerage in 1945
