It was created on July 26, 1921 for the noted Irish lawyer and Unionist politician Sir James Campbell, 1st Baronet. He was Lord Chief Justice of Ireland from 1916 to 1918 and Lord Chancellor of Ireland from 1918 to 1921. Campbell had already been created a Baronet in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1917.[2] He was succeeded by his son, the second Baron. On his death the titles passed to his eldest son, the third Baron. Better known simply as Patrick Campbell, he was a well-known journalist, humorist and television personality. He died without male issue and was succeeded by his younger brother, the fourth Baron. He never married and on his death in 1984 the baronetcy and barony became extinct.
