Baron Sudbury

Duc de Grafton

Le titre de duc de Grafton a été créé en 1675 par Charles II d'Angleterre pour son deuxième fils illégitime, Henri FitzRoy qu'il avait eu avec Barbara Palmer, 1re duchesse de Cleveland. Le plus célèbre des ducs de Grafton est très certainement Augustus FitzRoy, 3e duc de Grafton, qui fut Premier Ministre de Grande-Bretagne (1768-1770).

Le duc tient trois titres subsidiaires (tous créés en 1672 dans la Pairie d'Angleterre) de comte d'Euston, vicomte Ipswich et baron Sudbury. Le fils aîné du duc et héritier apparant utilise le titre de courtoisie de comte d'Euston.

Le siège familial est Euston Hall dans le Suffolk.
