Viscount Daventry


Viscount Daventry

Viscount Daventry, of Daventry in the County of Northampton, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 6 May 1943 for Muriel FitzRoy (née Douglas-Pennant), in honour of her late husband, Edward FitzRoy, who served as Speaker of the House of Commons from 1928 until his death in 1943. The first Viscountess was the sister of Frank Douglas-Pennant, 5th Baron Penrhyn, whilst Edward FitzRoy was the second son of Charles FitzRoy, 3rd Baron Southampton and a male-line descendant of the Charles FitzRoy, 2nd Duke of Grafton. Their grandson, the third Viscount (who succeeded his uncle in 1986), assumed the additional surname of Newdegate, which was that of his father-in-law. As of 2006 the title is held by his son, the fourth Viscount. As a male-line descendant of both the third Baron Southampton and the second Duke of Grafton he is also in remainder to these peerages.
