The Brabazon Baronetcy, of Newpark in the County of Mayo, was a title in the Baronetage of Ireland. It was created on 16 December 1797 for Anthony Brabazon.[1] He was the eldest son and heir of George Brabazon, of New Park in County Mayo, fourth in descent from Sir Anthony Brabazon of Ballinasloe Castle, younger brother of Edward Brabazon, 1st Baron Ardee, ancestor of the Earls of Meath.[2] His son, the second Baronet, represented County Mayo in Parliament. The title became extinct on his death in 1840. Brabazon Park was eventually inherited by Hugh Brabazon Higgins, only son of Luke Higgins of Castlebar by his second wife Catherine, sister of Sir Anthony Brabazon. He was a Captain in the 15th Hussars, and adopted the surname of Brabazon by royal licence of 15 September 1852.[3] He died in 1864, leaving issue.
