The Kellett Baronetcy, of Lota in Cork, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created on 6 August 1801 for Sir Richard Kellett, with remainder to the heirs male of his father Richard Kellett. On the death of the second Baronet in 1886 the title passed to the third Baronet, a descendant of Henry Kellett, younger brother of the first Baronet. However, he did not assume the title until 1906. The presumed fifth and sixth Baronets did not successfully prove their succession and were not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. The presumed seventh Baronet has also not successfully proven his succession and is not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1966.[2]
