Edward Barrett, 1st Lord Barrett of Newburgh

Edward Barrett, 1st Lord Barrett of Newburgh, PC (21 June 1581-buried 2 January 1645) was an English politician.

Barrett was the son of Charles Barrett and Christian Mildmay (a sister of Sir Walter Mildmay) and as educated Queen's College, Oxford and Lincoln's Inn. He was knighted in 1608, MP for Whitchurch in 1614 and for Newport from 1621-22 and Ambassador to France in 1625. In 1628, he was invested as member of the Privy Council and from 1628-29, he was Chancellor of the Exchequer and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster from 1629-44 and a Lord of the Treasury from 1641-43.

In 1628, he had been raised to the Peerage as Lord Barrett of Newburgh and made a baronet a year later (a unique occurrence of someone being made a baronet after being made peer). Barrett was married twice but had no children, so that upon his death in 1645, his titles became extinct.
