Imbert-Terry baronets

The Imbert-Terry Baronetcy, of Strete Ralegh in Whimple in the County of Devon, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 2 July 1917 for Henry Imbert-Terry.[1] He was Chairman of the Central Organization Committee of the Conservative and Unionist Party from 1907 to 1917.

The first Baronet's sister, Mary Anne Abbot Imbert-Terry (1844–1936), married Rev. Herbert Athill, rector of Digswell, Herts., and was thus paternal grandmother of the literary editor and writer Diana Athill.[2][3][4]

The second Baronet, Sir Henry Bouhier Imbert-Terry, was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Royal Artillery and served as High Sheriff of Devon in 1948, just as his brother, Capt Frederic Bouhier Imbert-Terry, was in 1928.

The family is of French origin (originally simply 'Imbert', later incorporating the name of their Vendean land property of 'la Terrière' in their surname as 'Terry'); the first Baronet was son of Henri Imbert-Terry, seigneur de la Terrière, who lived at Le Barbin, Viellevigne, France and 17, Chester Terrace, Regent's Park, London; previous generations had owned other fiefs, including at Choltière and Malescot.[5]
