Baron Cobbold, of Knebworth in the County of Hertford, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1960 for the banker Cameron Cobbold. He was Governor of the Bank of England from 1949 to 1961.
The second Baron succeeded in 1987. In 1961, he assumed by deed poll the additional surname of Lytton, which was the maiden name of his mother Lady Hermione Lytton, through whom the family inherited Knebworth House. From 2000 he was one of the ninety elected hereditary peers who remained in the House of Lords after the passing of the House of Lords Act 1999, and sat as a cross-bencher until his retirement in 2014.
Several other members of the Cobbold family have also gained distinction. The first Baron was the grandson of Nathaniel Fromanteel Cobbold, who was the son of John Cobbold, Member of Parliament for Ipswich, and brother of John Cobbold, Thomas Cobbold and Felix Cobbold, who also sat as Members of Parliament.
