Baron Howard of Escrick was a title in the Peerage of England. It was created on 12 April 1628 for the Honourable Edward Howard. A member of the influential Howard family, he was the youngest son of Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk, the son of Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk by his second wife Margaret Audley (see Earl of Suffolk and Duke of Norfolk for more information). The third Baron represented Winchelsea in the House of Commons and was also accused of being involved in the Rye House Plot; later he became a notorious informer in State trials, earning much hatred and contempt as a result. The title became extinct on the death of his son, the fourth Baron, in 1715.
