The Leeds Baronetcy, of Croxton Park in the County of Cambridge, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created on 31 December 1812 for George Leeds. He was an equerry to Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex. The Croxton Park estate in Cambridgeshire had been in the Leeds family since circa 1568. As of 2011 the presumed ninth and present Baronet, a resident of Canada, has not successfully proven his succession and is not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage.
