Baron Borwick, of Hawkshead in the County of Lancaster, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1922 for the businessman Sir Robert Borwick, 1st Baronet. He was chairman of George Borwick & Sons Ltd, manufacturers of baking and custard powders. The company had been founded by his father George Borwick. Before his elevation to the peerage, Borwick had been created a baronet, of Eden Lacy in the County of Lancaster, in 1916. His eldest son, the second Baron, was succeeded by his younger brother, the third Baron. The latter was succeeded by his son, the fourth Baron (who had four daughters). As of 2014 the titles are held by his nephew, the fifth Baron, who succeeded in 2007. Lord Borwick is the eldest son of the Hon. Robin Borwick, third son of the third Baron. The family tomb is maintained at the Cimetières du Château in Nice.
