Roberts baronets

  (Redirected from Roberts Baronets)

There have been nine baronetcies created for persons with the surname Roberts, three in the Baronetage of England and six in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. As of 2014 four of the creations are extant.

The Roberts Baronetcy, of Glassenbury in the County of Kent, was created in the Baronetage of England on 3 July 1620 for Thomas Roberts. The fourth Baronet represented Kent and Maidstone in the House of Commons.[1] The title is said to have become extinct on the death of the sixth Baronet, who left an only daughter, in 1745 (however, see the Roberts Baronetcy of 1809).

The Roberts Baronetcy, of Willesdon in the County of Middlesex, was created in the Baronetage of England on 4 October 1661 for William Roberts, later sitting for Middlesex. The title became extinct on the death of the second Baronet in 1698.

The Roberts Baronetcy, of Bow in the County of Essex, was created in the Baronetage of England on 2 February 1681 for John Roberts. The title became extinct on the death of the second Baronet in 1692

The Roberts Baronetcy, of Britfieldstown in the County of Cork and of the City of Cork, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 20 September 1809 for Thomas Roberts. He had earlier claimed the Roberts Baronetcy of 1620. Jane Roberts, only daughter of the sixth Baronet of the 1620 creation, married George Beauclerk, 3rd Duke of St Albans. In circa 1775 she believed that she had discovered the descendants of Thomas, second son of the second Baronet, who lived at Britfieldstown in County Cork, Ireland, and the baronetcy was assumed by the head of that family, Randal Roberts. In 1809 a new patent was passed in favour of his son, the aforementioned Thomas. The baronetcy of 1620 is still claimed by the seventh holder of the 1809 creation, although this claim has not been established at the Herald's College.

The Roberts Baronetcy, of the Army, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 15 June 1881. For more information on this creation, see the Earl Roberts.

The second Baronet was Lord Mayor of Sheffield from 1919 to 1920 and later represented Hereford and Eccleshall in the House of Commons as a Conservative. The third Baronet sat as Conservative Member of Parliament for Ecclesall and Heeley.

The Roberts Baronetcy, of Martholme in the County of Surrey, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 29 January 1931 for George Roberts. The title became extinct on his death in 1950.
