Burgoyne baronets

There have been two baronetcies created for members of the Burgoyne family, one in the Baronetage of England and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Both creations are extinct.

The Burgoyne Baronetcy, of Sutton in the County of Bedford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 15 July 1641 for John Burgoyne of Sutton, Bedfordshire, High Sheriff of Bedfordshire in 1640 and Member of Parliament for Warwickshire between 1645 and 1648. The Burgoyne family had acquired the two manors of Sutton in 1529 and 1544. Robert Burgoyne (d. 1545), the great-grandfather of the first Baronet, was one of the King's Commissioners for the Dissolution of the Monasteries and in 1544 he was granted the lands of the dissolved Priory of Wroxall by Henry VIII. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Bedfordshire in 1640 and between 1641 and 1648 and for Warwickshire between 1656 and 1658. The sixth Baronet was Member of Parliament for Bedfordshire between 1734 and 1747. The seventh Baronet was a Major-General in the Army. The ninth Baronet was High Sheriff of Bedfordshire 1852 and a Colonel in the Grenadier Guards. The tenth Baronet was a Lieutenant-General in the Grenadier Guards. The title became extinct on his death in 1921.

The family seats were Sutton Park and Wroxall Priory

The Burgoyne Baronetcy, of the Army, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1856 for Lieutenant-General John Burgoyne. He was the son of General John Burgoyne. The title became extinct on Burgoyne's death in 1871.
