Baron Savile

Baron Savile, of Rufford in the County of Nottingham, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1888 for the diplomat John Savile. He was the eldest of the five illegitimate children of John Lumley-Savile, 8th Earl of Scarbrough, and the grandson of John Lumley-Savile, 7th Earl of Scarbrough. The latter was the fourth of the seven sons of Richard Lumley-Saunderson, 4th Earl of Scarbrough, and his wife Barbara Savile, sister and heiress of the politician Sir George Savile, 8th and last Baronet, of Thornhill (see Savile Baronets for more information on this title), who bequeathed the substantial Savile estates in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire (including Ruffold and Thornhill) to his nephew the Hon. Richard Lumley-Saunderson, later 6th Earl of Scarbrough. On his death the estates passed to his younger brother, the aforementioned seventh Earl, and then to his son the eighth Earl. The latter bequeathed the estates to his second natural son Captain Henry Lumley-Savile (died 1881). When he died they passed to his younger brother Augustus William Lumley-Savile (1829-1887) and then to his eldest brother, the aforementioned John Savile, who was created Baron Savile the following year.

The peerage was created with remainder to Savile's nephew John Lumley, who succeeded him as second Baron. In 1898 he assumed by Royal license the surname of Savile in addition to that of Lumley. As of 2008, the title is held by his grandson, the fourth Baron.
