The Wigan Baronetcy, of Clare Lawn in Mortlake in the County of Surrey and Purland Chase in Ross in the County of Hereford, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[2] It was created on 9 March 1898 for Frederick Wigan, a Director of the North London Railway. The presumed 6th Baronet, listed in Debrett's Peerage (2015) as the son of the 5th Baronet, has not successfully proven his succession and is consequently not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage.[3]
