Thomas Manners-Sutton,
1st Baron Manners

Baron Manners, of Foston in the County of Lincoln,[1] is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1807 for the lawyer and politician Sir Thomas Manners-Sutton. He served as Solicitor-General from 1802 to 1805 and as Lord Chancellor of Ireland from 1807 to 1827. Manners-Sutton was the fifth son of Lord George Manners-Sutton, third son of John Manners, 3rd Duke of Rutland. His elder brother Charles Manners-Sutton was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1805 to 1828 and the father of Charles Manners-Sutton, 1st Viscount Canterbury, Speaker of the House of Commons from 1817 to 1834. The first Baron's great-grandson, the fourth Baron, assumed the surname of Manners only. As of 2010 the title is held by the latter's grandson, the sixth Baron, who succeeded his father in 2008. As a descendant of the third Duke of Rutland he is also in remainder to this peerage and its subsidiary titles.
