Baron Churston


Baron Churston

Baron Churston, of Churston Ferrers and Lupton in the County of Devon, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1858 for the former Conservative Member of Parliament Sir John Yarde, 3rd Baronet. He had earlier represented South Devon in the House of Commons. Two years later, in 1860, he assumed by Royal license the additional surname of Buller. As of 2007 the titles are held by his great-great-great-grandson, the fifth Baron, who succeeded his father in 1991.

The Baronetcy, of Churston Court in the County of Devon, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain in 1790 for the son of the Member of Parliament James Buller, the lawyer Sir Francis Buller. His son, the second Baronet, represented Totnes in the House of Commons. In 1800 he assumed by Royal license the surname of Yarde. He was succeeded by his eldest son, the aforementioned third Baronet, who was elevated to the peerage in 1858.

The Barons Churston are related to the Viscounts Dilhorne. Sir Edward Manningham-Buller, 1st Baronet, of Dilhorne, third son of Sir Francis Yarde, 2nd Baronet, of Churston Court, was the great-grandfather of Reginald Manningham-Buller, 1st Viscount Dilhorne. Also, Hon. Joan Yarde-Buller, daughter of the third Baron Churston, married Prince Aly Khan. The fifth and present Baron is a first cousin of Aga Khan IV.
