Radcliffe Baronets

The Radcliffe Baronetcy, of Milnesbridge House in the County of York, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 2 November 1813 for Joseph Radcliffe as a reward for his public services. Born Joseph Pickford, he was the son of Joseph Pickford and his wife Mary, daughter of William Radcliffe and sister and heiress of William Radcliffe, and had assumed the surname of Radcliffe in lieu of his patronymic in 1795. They owned a historic house in Royton. The Radcliffes were an ancient Lancashire family and took their name from the village of Radcliffe in that county.
