Stonhouse baronets

There have been three baronetcies created for members of the Stonhouse family, all in the Baronetage of England. Two of the creations are extant as of 2016.

The Stonhouse Baronetcy, of Radley in the County of Berkshire, was created in the Baronetage of England on 7 May 1628 (#253) for William Stonhouse. He was the eldest son of George Stonhouse (died 1573), sometime Clerk of the Green Cloth. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Abingdon. The third Baronet also represented Abingdon in the House of Commons. He disinherited his eldest son, George, and attempted to eliminate him from succession to the baronetcy. In 1670 he surrendered his patent and on 5 May 1670 he obtained a new patent (with the same territorial designation), with remainder to his two younger sons, and with the precedency of the original creation. However, upon the third Baronet's death, his eldest son successfully claimed the original baronetcy, while his younger brother John succeeded in the baronetcy created by the new patent. The line of the fourth Baronet failed on the death of the sixth Baronet in 1740 and the baronetcy passed to the fourth Baronet of the 1670 creation. The second and third Baronets of this creation had represented Abingdon and Berkshire respectively in the House of Commons. The eleventh Baronet was a physician, Anglican clergyman and preacher.

The Stonhouse Baronetcy, of Amberden Hall, Debden in the County of Essex, was created in the Baronetage of England on 11 June 1641 (#303) for James Stonhouse. He was the son of Sir James Stonhouse Kt. (youngest son of the aforementioned George Stonhouse) and the nephew of the first Baronet of the 1628 creation. The title became extinct on the death of the sixth Baronet on 13 April 1695.
