The Gore Baronetcy, of Magherabegg (or Manor Gore) in the County of Donegal was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 2 February 1622 for Paul Gore (shown also as 1st baronet of Manor Gore, the Anglicized version). The fourth Baronet served as Chancellor of the Irish Exchequer and as Speaker of the Irish House of Commons. The fifth Baronet represented County Donegal in the Irish Parliament. The sixth Baronet was a prominent military commander. In 1764 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Gore, of Manor Gore in the County of Donegal,[1] and in 1768 he was further created Viscount Belleisle, of Belleisle, in the County of Fermanagh.[2] In 1772 he was further honoured when he was made Earl of Ross, in the County of Fermanagh.[3] All three titles were in the Peerage of Ireland. However, Lord Ross had no surviving male issue and the peerages became extinct on his death in 1802, while the baronetcy passed to his nephew. The present holder of the baronetcy lives in Australia.

Gore baronets of Newtown (1662)Edit

(Earls of Arran since 1762)

The Gore Baronetcy, of Newtown in the County of Mayo, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 10 April 1662 for Arthur Gore. He was the 2nd son of the 1st Baronet (1622 creation). His great-grandson and namesake[4] 3rd Baronet, was in 1762 elevated to the peerage as Earl of Arran.

A notable family member was Cecilia Underwood, Duchess of Inverness. She was born Lady Cecilia Letitia Gore (c. 1785–1873) and was the illegally-married second wife of Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex, a younger son of King George III.

The family is currently represented by Arthur Gore, 9th Earl of Arran (b1938). His heir presumptive is currently Paul Annesley Gore (born 1921), a distant cousin.

  • Arthur Gore, 1st Baronet (died 1697)
  • Sir Arthur Gore, 2nd Baronet (c.1685-1741/1742)
  • Sir Arthur Gore, 3rd Baronet (1703–1773), created Earl of Arran 12 April 1762[4]/ 1760[5]
  • Gore, later Gore-Booth, of Artarman (1760)

The Gore, later Gore-Booth Baronetcy, of Artarman in the County of Sligo, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 30 August 1760 for Booth Gore, descendant of Sir Francis Gore, 4th son of the 1st Baronet (1622 creation). He married Lætitia, daughter and heiress of Humphrey Booth.

The family has a common origin with the Earl of Arran, Earl Temple of Stowe, Baron Harlech, the Gore baronets of 1622 creation, and the ancient Booth baronets.

In 1804 the 3rd baronet assumed the additional surname and arms of Booth by Royal Licence. The 4th Baronet represented County Sligo in the British House of Commons for many years. The Irish nationalist Constance, Countess Markiewicz, was born the daughter of the 5th baronet Sir Henry Gore-Booth of this branch. As a descendant of the 1st Gore Baronet of Magherabegg, the present baronet is remainder to the title.

The family seat was Lissadell House, near Carney, County Sligo.
