Baron de Saumarez

James Saumarez,
1st Baron de Saumarez

Baron de Saumarez, in the Island of Guernsey, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 15 September 1831 for the prominent naval commander Admiral Sir James Saumarez, 1st Baronet. He had already been created a Baronet, of Guernsey, on 13 June 1801. Lord de Saumarez was succeeded by his eldest son James, the second Baron, a clergyman. James was succeeded by his younger brother, John, the third Baron. As of 2009 the titles are held by his great-great-grandson, the seventh Baron, who succeeded his father in 1991. Although born and brought up in Suffolk, in 2006 Lord de Saumarez returned to Guernsey. The Saumarez Manor estate in Guernsey belongs to a very distant branch of the Barons de Saumarez.

The ancestral family seat was the Shrubland Park estate, near Ipswich, in Suffolk. It was put on the market by the present Lord de Saumarez in April 2006 following the demise of the Dowager Lady de Saumarez.
