The FitzHerbert baronetcy, of Tissington in the County of Derby, is a title in the Baronetage of Great Britain. It was created on 22 January 1784 for William FitzHerbert, of Tissington Hall, Derbyshire.
The FitzHerberts descend from a Norman knight, Herbert, whose son was known by the patronymic filius Herberti in Latin and fils de Herbert in Norman French. They are related to the FitzHerberts of Swynnerton Hall, Staffordshire (see Baron Stafford).
In 1125, William Fitz-Herbert was granted the tenancy of Norbury Manor in Norbury, Derbyshire. Nicholas FitzHerbert and his son Ralph purchased it from the priory in 1444. The senior male line of the family held the manor until selling it in 1881. The original charter from King Henry III of England in 1125 has survived.
Successive baronets served as High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1815, 1865, 1866 and 1940.
Tissington Hall has been the family seat since the 15th century.
