Sitwell Baronets

Sitwell Baronets

The Sitwell Baronetcy, of Renishaw in the County of Derby, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 3 October 1808 for Sitwell Sitwell, Member of Parliament for West Looe. The Sitwell family had been ironmasters and landowners in Eckington, Derbyshire, for many centuries. In 1625, George Sitwell (1600-1667), High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1653, built Renishaw Hall which remains the family seat. His great-grandson Francis Hurt Sitwell (1728-1793), father of the first Baronet, inherited Barmoor Castle, Northumberland. He was born Francis Hurt, the son of Jonathan Hurt and his wife Katherine Sitwell, heiress of the Sitwell family, and assumed the surname of Sitwell in lieu of his patronymic. The fourth Baronet sat as Conservative Member of Parliament for Scarborough. His sons, the fifth Baronet and sixth Baronets, were both noted poets and authors. The seventh Baronet was High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1983 and is a Deputy Lieutenant of the county.

Dame Edith Sitwell, only daughter of the fourth Baronet, was a poet and critic.
