Davers baronets

The Davers Baronetcy, of Rougham in the County of Suffolk, was a title in the Baronetage of England. It was created on 12 May 1682 for Robert Davers, who had made a great fortune in Barbados before acquiring the Rougham estate in Suffolk. The second and fourth Baronets represented Bury St Edmunds and Suffolk in Parliament. The sixth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Weymouth and Bury St Edmunds. The title became either extinct or dormant on his death in 1806.

Thomas Davers, third son of the second Baronet, was an admiral in the Royal Navy. The family seat was Rushbrooke Hall from 1703 to 1806.
