Viscount Brentford

Viscount Brentford, of Newick in the County of Sussex, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1929 for the Conservative politician William Joynson-Hicks, chiefly remembered for his tenure as Home Secretary from 1924 to 1929. He had already been created a Baronet, of Holmsbury, on 20 September 1919. His younger son, the third Viscount, was also a Conservative politician. On 29 January 1956, two years before he succeeded his elder brother, he was created a Baronet, of Newick. As of 2006 the titles are held by the third Viscount's son, the fourth Viscount.

The family seat is Cousley Place, near Wadhurst, Sussex.
