The Winnington Baronetcy, of Stanford Court in the County of Worcester, is a title in the Baronetage of Great Britain.

History[edit]

Sir Francis Winnington (1634–1700) Solicitor-General to King Charles II, acquired the family seat of Stanford Court, Stanford on Teme, Worcestershire through his marriage to Elizabeth, third and youngest sister and coheir of Edward Salwey.[1]

The baronetage was created on 15 February 1755 for Edward Winnington (great-grandson of Sir Francis), subsequently Member of Parliament for Bewdley. The second Baronet represented Droitwich in the House of Commons and the third Baronet Droitwich, Worcestershire and Bewdley. The fourth Baronet sat as Liberal Member of Parliament for Bewdley. The fifth Baronet was High Sheriff of Worcestershire in 1894, and the seventh Baronet occupied the same office in 2015.[2]
