Sebright baronets

The Sebright Baronetcy, of Besford in the County of Worcester, is a title in the Baronetage of England. It was created on 20 December 1626 for Edward Sebright, High Sheriff of Worcestershire who later fought as a Royalist in the Civil War. He was the son of John Sebright of Blakeshall, Wolverley and was the heir of his uncle William Sebright (1541–1620) of Besford, who established by his will in 1620 the charity "Sebright's Endowed Schools", still surviving today and very richly endowed as "Sebright's Educational Foundation". The fourth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Hertfordshire. The sixth Baronet represented Bath in the House of Commons. The seventh Baronet was Member of Parliament for Hertfordshire and also became known as an agriculturalist. As of 28 February 2014 the present Baronet has not successfully proven his succession and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1995.
