High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! There have been five
Baronetcies created for people with the surname Napier, three in
the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia and
one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two of the baronetcies
are still extant. The Napier Baronetcy, of Luton Hoo in the County
of Bedford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 24
September 1611 for Robert Napier. The title became extinct on the
death of the sixth Baronet in 1748. The Napier Baronetcy, of
Merchistoun in the County of Midlothian, was created in the
Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 2 March 1627 for Archibald Napier.
Later that year he was raised to the Peerage of Scotland as Lord
Napier. The baronetcy became dormant in 1683 on the death of the
third Lord and third Baronet, while the lordship passed to the late
Lord's nephew. The baronetcy was successfully claimed in 1817 by
the third Lord Napier's heir male general, the eighth Baronet.
