Baron Bethell, of Romford in the County of Essex, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in the 1922 Dissolution Honours for the banker and Liberal politician Sir John Bethell, 1st Baronet, who had previously represented Romford and East Ham North in Parliament.  He had already been created a Baronet, of Romford in the County of Essex, on 26 June 1911.
The title descended from father to son until the early death of his grandson, the third Baron, in 1967. The late Baron was succeeded by his first cousin, the fourth Baron. He was the son of the Hon. William Gladstone Bethell, third son of the first Baron. Lord Bethell was a historian and Conservative politician. As of 2017[update], the titles are held by his eldest son, the fifth Baron, who succeeded in 2007 and was elected to sit in the House of Lords in 2018.
