Baron Cherleton is an abeyant title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1313 when John Charleton was summoned to Parliament. The Charleton family were a Shropshire knightly family, one of whom married Hawise "Gadarn" the heiress of the Lordship of Powys. This was the former Welsh Principality of Powys Wenwynwyn, which had as a result of the last prince's submission to Edward I been transformed into a marcher lordship. The title fell into abeyance on the death of the fifth Baron in 1421.
