Baron Rankeillour

Baron Rankeillour, of Buxted in the County of Sussex, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1932 for the Conservative politician James Fitzalan Hope. He was the grandson of General Sir Alexander Hope, fourth son of John Hope, 2nd Earl of Hopetoun (from whom the Marquesses of Linlithgow descend). His eldest son, the second Baron, was also a Conservative politician and held junior ministerial office. From 1940 to 1946 he served as Governor of Madras. He was succeeded by his younger brother, the third Baron. On the death in 2005 of his only son, the fourth Baron, this line of the family failed. The late Baron was succeeded by his first cousin, the fifth and (as of 2007) present holder of the title. He is the eldest son of the Hon. Richard Frederick Hope, youngest son of the first Baron. As a descendant of the second Earl of Hopetoun he is also in remainder to this peerage and its subsidiary titles the viscountcy of Aithrie and lordship of Hope, which are now held by his kinsman the Marquess of Linlithgow.
