The Scottish Nation

BARRET, Baron BARRET of Newburgh, a peerage of Scotland now extinct, conferred by King Charles the First on Sir Edward Barret, knight, of Bellhouse in Essex, by patent dated at Whitehall 17th October 1627, to himself and the legitimate heirs male of his body, bearing the name and arms of Barret. His lordship was chancellor of the exchequer in England from 1635 to 1642. He married Anne, daughter of Sir Edward Cary, knight, and died in 1644 without issue, when the title became extinct. His kinsman, the Hon. Richard Lennard of Horseford, in Norfolk, (youngest son of Richard Lord Dacre,) to whom Lord Barret bequeathed his property in Essex, took the name of Barret, and was ancestor of Thomas Barret Lennard, Lord Dacre, who died in 1786.
