English: The Egerton, later Grey Egerton Baronetcy, of Egerton and Oulton in the County of Chester, is a title in the Baronetage of England. It was created on 5 April 1617 for Roland Egerton. He later represented Wootton Bassett in Parliament. Egerton married Bridget, sister and co-heir of Thomas Grey, who was attainted in 1603 and his title forfeited (see Baron Grey de Wilton). The Egertons were an ancient Cheshire family. An ancestor of the first Baronet, William le Belward, took the surname of Egerton from the lordship of Egerton, which he inherited. The sixth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Newton.
