Howe baronets

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Howe, both in the Baronetage of England and both extinct.

The Howe Baronetcy, of Cold Barwick in the County of Wiltshire, was created in the Baronetage of England on 20 June 1660 for George Grobham Howe, Member of Parliament for Hindon in 1660–1667. His son Sir James Howe, 2nd Baronet was also MP for Hindon.

The Howe Baronetcy, of Compton in the County of Gloucester, was created in the Baronetage of England on 22 September 1660 for John Howe, Member of Parliament for Gloucestershire in 1654-1655 and 1656-1658. His elder son Richard, the second baronet, was also an MP, as was his younger son John Grobham Howe (died 1679). Sir Richard Grobham Howe, the third baronet, was MP for Tamworth, Cirencester and Wiltshire. Sir Emanuel Scrope Howe, 4th Baronet became the 2nd Viscount Howe on the death of his father in 1713 and the baronetcy which he inherited in 1730 was merged with his viscountcy.
