Baron Rotherwick, of Tylney in the County of Southampton, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 8 June 1939 for the shipping magnate and Conservative Member of Parliament, Sir Herbert Cayzer, 1st Baronet. He had previously represented Portsmouth South in the House of Commons. Before his elevation to the peerage, he had been created a baronet, of Tylney in the County of Southampton, on 29 January 1924. Cayzer was the fifth son of Sir Charles Cayzer, 1st Baronet, of Gartmore and the younger brother of Sir August Cayzer, 1st Baronet, of Roffey Park. As of 2010 the titles are held by the first Baron's grandson, the third Baron, who succeeded his father in 1996. He is one of the 92 elected hereditary peers that remain in the House of Lords after the passing of the House of Lords Act of 1999, and sits on the Conservative benches. Lord Rotherwick also succeeded to the Cayzer Baronetcy of Gartmore on the death of Sir James Arthur Cayzer, 5th Baronet on 27 February 2012.
