Viscount FitzAlan of Derwent

Edmund FitzAlan-Howard, 1st Viscount FitzAlan of Derwent.

Viscount FitzAlan of Derwent, of Derwent in the County of Derby, was a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1921 for Lord Edmund Talbot on his appointment as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Born Lord Edmund FitzAlan-Howard, he was the second son of Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 14th Duke of Norfolk. In 1876 he assumed by Royal licence the surname of Talbot in lieu of his patronymic in an unsuccessful attempt to succeed to the estates of the Earl of Shrewsbury. Shortly after being raised to the peerage he resumed the surnames of FitzAlan-Howard in lieu of Talbot. The title became extinct on the death of his son, the second Viscount, in 1962.
