Bagot familyEdit

The Bagot family has held land in Staffordshire since at least the 11th century. One member of the family, Hervey Bagot, represented Staffordshire in Parliament and fought as a Royalist in the Civil War. He was High Sheriff of Staffordshire in 1626 and on 31 May 1627 he was created a baronet, of Blithfield Hall, in the County of Staffordshire, in the Baronetage of England.[1] His son (the second Baronet), grandson (third Baronet) and great-grandson (fourth Baronet) also represented Staffordshire in the House of Commons.

The latter's son, the fifth Baronet, sat as a Member of Parliament for Staffordshire as well as for Newcastle-under-Lyme and Oxford University. He was succeeded by his son, the aforementioned sixth Baronet. He represented Staffordshire in Parliament as a Tory from 1754 to 1780. In the latter year he was raised to the peerage as Baron Bagot, of Bagot's Bromley in the County of Stafford. His grandson, the third Baron, sat as a Conservative Member of Parliament for Denbighshire and after entering the House of Lords served as a government whip under the Earl of Derby and Benjamin Disraeli.

On the death of his son, the fourth Baron, the line of the eldest son of the first Baron failed. The titles passed to his second cousin, the fifth Baron. He was the son of Vice-Admiral Henry Bagot, third son of the Right Reverend the Hon. Richard Bagot, Bishop of Oxford and of Bath and Wells, fifth son of the first Baron. He was succeeded by his first cousin once removed, the sixth Baron. He was the son of Reverend Lewis Richard Charles Bagot, eldest son of Reverend Charles Walter Bagot, fourth son of the aforementioned Richard Bagot, fifth son of the first Baron. When he died the titles were inherited by his first cousin, the seventh Baron. He was the son of Charles Frederick Heneage Bagot, fourth son of Reverend Charles Walter Bagot (see above). On his death the titles passed to his younger brother, the eighth Baron, and then to their half-brother, the ninth Baron. As of 2014 the titles are held by the latter's son, the tenth Baron, who succeeded in 2001.

Since 30 June 2006, the present Baron Bagot has not successfully proven his succession to the baronetcy and is not therefore on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. However, the case is under review by the Registrar of the Baronetage.[2]

The ancestral seat of the Bagot family is Blithfield Hall in Staffordshire. A junior branch of the Bagot family had their seat at Pype Hayes Hall, Warwickshire. Another junior branch have their seat at Levens Hall, Cumbria.
