The Burton Baronetcy, of Stockerston in the County of Leicester, was created in the Baronetage of England on 22 July 1622 for Sir Thomas Burton, son of John Burton of Braunston who had purchased the Stockerston Hall estate in 1580. He was knighted in Dublin in 1605. He served as High Sheriff of Leicestershire in 1633. His son, the second Baronet, served the Royalist cause during the English Civil War and his estate was subsequently sequestered. Following the Restoration his son the third Baronet served as High Sheriff in 1682. He sold Stockerston in 1690. The fourth and last Baronet was imprisoned for debt in 1710 and following conviction for theft in 1722 was transported. The baronetcy presumably became extinct on his death in circa 1750.
The Burton Baronetcy, of Pollacton in the County of Carlow, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 2 October 1758 for Sir Charles Burton, Lord Mayor of Dublin. The third and fourth Baronets served as High Sheriffs of County Carlow. The baronetcy became extinct on the death of the latter in 1902. The family seat Pollacton House was demolished in the 1970s.
