Baron Bolsover

Bolsover Castle, Derbyshire

Baron Bolsover, of Bolsover Castle in the County of Derby, was a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created on 23 April 1880 (as Baroness Bolsover) for Augusta Cavendish-Bentinck, with remainder to the heirs male of the body of her late husband Lieutenant-General Arthur Cavendish-Bentinck (1819–1877), younger son of Lord Charles Bentinck, third son of William Cavendish-Bentinck, 3rd Duke of Portland.[2] Lady Bolsover was the daughter of the Very Reverend Henry Montague Browne, Dean of Lismore, second son of James Caulfeild Browne, 2nd Baron Kilmaine.[3] She was succeeded according to the special remainder by her stepson William Cavendish-Bentinck, 6th Duke of Portland, who became the second Baron Bolsover. He was the only child from Arthur Cavendish-Bentinck's first marriage, to Elizabeth Sophia Hawkins-Whitshed.

The barony remained united with the dukedom until the death of the sixth Duke's son, the seventh Duke, in 1977. The dukedom was passed on to a cousin while the barony became extinct.
