Baron Denman, of Dovedale in the County of Derby, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1834 for the prominent lawyer, judge and Whig politician Thomas Denman. He served as Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench from 1832 to 1850. His son, the second Baron, assumed in 1876 by Royal license the additional surname of Aitchison, which was that of his father-in-law. He was succeeded by his great-nephew, the third Baron. He was the grandson of Hon. Richard Denman, younger son of the first Baron. Lord Denman notably served as Governor-General of Australia from 1911 to 1914. He was succeeded by his eldest son, the fourth Baron. On his death in 1971 the title passed to his first cousin Sir Charles Denman, 2nd Baronet, of Staffield (see below), the fifth and (As of 2009[update]) present holder of the titles. He unsuccessfully contested Leeds Central in the 1945 general election.
The Denman Baronetcy, of Staffield in the County Cumberland, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1945 for the Hon. Richard Denman, younger brother of the third Baron Denman. He had earlier represented Carlisle and Leeds Central in the House of Commons. He was succeeded by his son, the aforementioned second Baronet, who succeeded as fifth Baron Denman in 1971.
