Rawlinson baronets

The Rawlinson Baronetcy, of North Walsham in the County of Norfolk, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 7 February 1891 for the orientalist, archaeologist and politician Henry Rawlinson. His son, the second Baronet, was a distinguished soldier. On 6 October 1919 he was raised to the Peerage of the United Kingdom as Baron Rawlinson, of Trent in the County of Dorset. On his death on 26 March 1925 the barony became extinct, while the baronetcy passed to his younger brother, the third Baronet.
