Graham Baronets


Graham Baronets

There have been eight Baronetcies created for persons with the surname Graham, two in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia, two in the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and three in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Braco in the County of Perth, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 28 September 1625 for William Graham. The title became dormant on the death of the fourth Baronet in c. 1700 but has since been assumed by the Duke of Montrose.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Esk in the County of Cumberland, was created in the Baronetage of England on 29 March 1629 for Richard Graham. He represented Carlisle in Parliament, was a Gentleman of the Horse to King Charles I and fought at the Battle of Edgehill in 1642. The third Baronet served as Ambassador to France and as Secretary of State to King James II. In 1681 he was created Lord Graham of Esk and Viscount Preston in the Peerage of Scotland. After the Glorious Revolution he was condemned for high treason but was later pardoned. The peerages became extinct on the death of the third Viscount in 1739. The late Viscount was succeeded in the baronetcy by his kinsman William Graham, the sixth Baronet. The presumed thirteenth Baronet never successfully proved his succession and was never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. The presumed fourteenth Baronet has also not successfully proven his succession and is likewise not on the Officiall Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Norton Conyers in the County of York, was created in the Baronetage of England on 17 November 1662 for Richard Graham. This was in honour of his services to The Restoration of the monarchy. Graham was the second son of the first Graham Baronet of the 1629 creation.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Netherby in the County of Cumberland, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 15 January 1783 for James Graham. He later represented Ripon in the House of Commons. This branch of the Graham family was descended from the Very Reverend William Graham, fourth son of the second Baronet of the 1629 creation. The second Baronet was a prominent statesman and notably served under Lord John Russell as Home Secretary from 1841 to 1846. The sixth Baronet held the honorary post of Lord-Lieutenant of Cumberland from 1958 to 1968 and was President of the Country Landowners Association from 1971 to 1973.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Larbert House in Larbert and of Househill in Dunipace in the County of Stirling, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 4 December 1906 for John Graham. He was a member of the firm of William Graham and Co, merchants, of Glasgow, and of Grahams Co, of London, East India merchants. This branch of the Graham family is descended from John, third son of Sir Davis Graham, ancestor of the Dukes of Montrose. The fourth Baronet was Ambassador to Iraq from 1974 to 1977 and to Iran from 1979 to 1980.

The Graham Baronetcy, of Dromore in the County of Down, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 23 January 1964 for Clarence Graham.
