Encyclopedia > Baron Brougham and Vaux

Baron Brougham and Vaux is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was first created in 1830 for Henry Brougham so that he could sit in the House of Lords and serve as Lord Chancellor. In 1860, he was given a second barony of the same name, but with a special remainder to his brother William. At his death, the 1830 barony became extinct since he left no heirs, but the 1860 title passed to his brother and thereafter to his heirs.
