Earl of Godolphin

Earl of Godolphin was a title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1706 for Sidney Godolphin, 1st Baron Godolphin, the Lord High Treasurer. He was created Viscount Rialton at the same time and had already in 1684 been created Baron Godolphin, of Rialton. These titles were also in the Peerage of England. In 1735 his son, the second Earl, was created Baron Godolphin, of Helston in the County of Cornwall, in the Peerage of Great Britain, with remainder, in default of male issue of his own, to the male issue of his deceased uncle Henry Godolphin, Dean of St Paul's. On the second Earl's death in 1766 the Earldom, Viscountcy and Barony of 1684 became extinct. However, he was succeeded in the Barony of 1735 according to the special remainder by his cousin, the second Baron. On his death in 1785 this title became extinct as well.
