Sullivan baronets

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Sullivan, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is extant as of 2010.

The Sullivan Baronetcy, of Thames Ditton in the County of Surrey, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 22 May 1804 for the writer and MP Richard Sullivan. The third and sixth Baronets were Admirals in the Royal Navy. The ninth, and as of 2010 present holder of the baronetcy, does not use his title.

The Sullivan Baronetcy, of Garryduff in the County of Cork, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 29 December 1881 for the Irish lawyer and politician Edward Sullivan. He was Lord Chancellor of Ireland from 1883 to 1885. The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1937.
