Wray baronets

There have been two Wray Baronetcies, both created in the Baronetage of England. The first was created on 25 November 1611 for William Wray of Glentworth, Lincolnshire, and became extinct upon the death of the 15th Baronet in 1809.[1] The second was created on 27 June 1660 for William Wray of Ashby, Lincolnshire.[2] He was the grandson of the 1st Baronet of Glentworth, and his son, Christopher Wray, inherited the 1660 baronetcy in 1669 and the 1611 baronetcy, as the 6th Baronet, in 1672. The 1660 creation became extinct upon the death of Sir William Wray, 7th Baronet of Glentworth and 2nd Baronet of Ashby, in about 1687. The Wray family were descendants of Catherine Parr and her husband Lord Latimer[3].
