The Seale Baronetcy, of Mount Boone in the County of Devon, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[2] It was created on 31 July 1838 for John Henry Seale, Whig Member of Parliament for Dartmouth from 1832 to 1844. The second Baronet was sixteen times Mayor of Dartmouth.[3]

The family descended from John Seale (born c.1512) of St Brelade in Jersey, a descendant of Robert Seale (or Scelle) a gens de bien of St Brelade 1292.[4] In 1720 the 1st Baronet's grandfather John Seale, purchased the estate of Mount Boone near Dartmouth. The latter's great-grandfather was John Seale, Constable of St Brelade 1644-51, the son of John Seale, Constable of St Brelade 1615-21.[5]
