Baron Wakehurst

Baron Wakehurst

Baron Wakehurst, of Ardingly in the County of Sussex, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1934 for the Conservative politician Gerald Loder, fifth son of Sir Robert Loder, 1st Baronet, of Whittlebury (see Loder Baronets for earlier history of the family). He had previously represented Brighton in the House of Commons and was the creator of Wakehurst Place Gardens in Ardingly, West Sussex. His only son, the second Baron, was also a Conservative politician and served as Governor of New South Wales and later as Governor of Northern Ireland. As of 2007 the title is held by the latter's eldest son, the third Baron, who succeeded in 1970. As a descendant of Sir Robert Loder, 1st Baronet, he is also in remainder to this title.
