North Baronets

There have been three baronetcies created for persons with the surname North, one in the Baronetage of England and two in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two creations are extinct while one is extant. The last creation passed into the North family through marriage.

The North Baronetcy, of Mildenhall in the County of Suffolk, was created in the Baronetage of England on 14 June 1660 for Henry North. He represented Suffolk in the House of Commons. The second Baronet also sat as Member of Parliament for this constituency. On his death in 1695 the title became extinct.

The Hicking, later North Baronetcy, of Southwell in the County of Nottingham, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 1 March 1920 for William Hicking, Chairman of the Nottingham and Notts Banking Company.[1] He had already been granted a baronetcy in 1917 with normal remainder to the heirs male of his body.[2] The 1920 creation was created with remainder to the sons of his daughters, and the heirs male of their bodies. On Hicking's death in 1947 the creation of 1917 became extinct while he was succeeded in the 1920 creation according to the special remainder by his grandson Jonathan North, the second holder of the title. He was the son of Muriel, younger daughter of the first Baronet, and her husband the Hon. John Montagu William North, second son of Frederick North, 8th Earl of Guilford. Consequently, he was also in remainder to the earldom of Guilford and its subsidiary title the barony of Guilford. He was succeeded by his son in 2018.
