Baron Vestey, of Kingswood in the County of Surrey, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created in 1922 for the shipping magnate Sir William Vestey, 1st Baronet. He was the co-founder of the Blue Star Line. Vestey had already been created a baronet, of Bessémer House in the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell, in 1913.[2] As of 2010 the titles are held by his great-grandson, the third Baron, who succeeded his grandfather in 1954. He is the eldest son of the Hon. William Vestey (died 1944) (who was killed in action in Italy during the Second World War), only son of the second Baron. Lord Vestey has served as Master of the Horse since 1999.

The family seat is Stowell Park Estate.

Sir Edmund Hoyle Vestey, 1st Baronet, co-founder of the Blue Star Line, was the younger brother of the first Baron Vestey.
