Viscount Harberton


Viscount Harberton

Viscount Harberton is a title in the Peerage of Ireland. It was created in 1791 for Arthur Pomeroy, who had previously represented County Kildare in the Irish House of Commons. He had already been created Baron Harberton, of Carbery, in 1783, also in the Peerage of Ireland. As of 2006 the titles are held by his great-great-great-great-grandson, the eleventh Viscount, who succeeded his uncle in 2004.
