Viscount Kemsley, of Dropmore in Buckingham county, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1945 for the press lord Gomer Berry, 1st Baron Kemsley. He had already been created a Baronet, of Dropmore in the County of Buckingham, on 25 January 1928, and Baron Kemsley, of Farnham Royal in the County of Buckingham, in 1936, also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. Berry was the younger brother of the industrialist Henry Berry, 1st Baron Buckland and of fellow newspaper magnate William Berry, 1st Viscount Camrose. As of 2013[update] the titles are held by his grandson, the third Viscount, who succeeded his uncle in 1999.
