Baron Audley

Baron Audley

The title Baron Audley was first created on 8 January 1313 by writ in the Peerage of England. The eleventh baron was created Earl of Castlehaven. The second earl was attainted of felony and executed, forfeiting the barony, but not the (Irish) earldom. His son was allowed to inherit it in 1678 by a bill of Parliament, and the barony and earldom remained united until the death of the eighth earl, when the earldom became extinct, and the barony went to George Thicknesse, later Thicknesse-Tuchet. In 1997, the title went into abeyance, and remains there to this day.

The title of "Baron Audley" was created a second time on 20 November 1317, again by writ of summons, for Hugh Audley. Upon his death in 1347, the barony became dormant: his only daughter and heir married Ralph Stafford, 1st Earl of Stafford and the "de jure" barony passed with the Earldom until 1521, when Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham was attainted.
