The Burdett, later Weldon Baronetcy, of Dunmore in the County of Carlow, is a title in the Baronetage of Ireland. It was created on 11 July 1723 for Thomas Burdett, who represented Carlow County and Carlow Borough in the Irish House of Commons, with remainder, in default of male issue of his own, to the male issue of his sister Anne, wife of Walter Weldon. The sixth Baronet was a Colonel in the British Army.
