The Hogg Baronets

THE HOGG BARONETCY WAS CREATED IN 1846 FOR JAMES WEIR HOGG MP

WILLIAM HOGG (c1658-1715), of Portglenone, County Antrim, came over to Ulster from Scotland or the north of England during the late 17th century and settled near Lisburn, County Antrim.

He wedded firstly, in 1677, Mary Podefield; and secondly, in 1686, Elizabeth Wilson, by whom he had issue,
WILLIAM;
James;
Jacob.
The eldest son,

WILLIAM HOGG, married, in 1718, Abigail Higginbothom, and had issue,
William;
James;
EDWARD, of whom hereafter;
Ruth.
Mr Hogg died in 1726. The youngest son,

EDWARD HOGG (1722-1809), wedded, in 1752, Rose, daughter of the Rev John O'Neill, and had issue,
WILLIAM, his heir;
James;
Abigail; Mary.
Mr Hogg was succeeded by his elder son,

WILLIAM HOGG (1754-1824), espoused, in 1783, Mary, daughter of James Dickey, of County Antrim, and had issue,
JAMES WEIR, his heir;
Charles;
Mary; Clara; Rosina; Lily Anne Maria.
The eldest son,

JAMES WEIR HOGG (1790-1876), married, in 1822, Mary Claudine, daughter of Samuel Swinton, of Swinton House, Berwickshire, and had issue,
JAMES MacNAGHTEN, his heir;
Charles Swinton;
Fergusson Floyer;
Stuart Saunders (Sir);
Frederick Russell (Sir);
Stapleton Cotton;
Quintin;
Isabella; Constance; Florence; Mary Rosina; Letitia; Amy; Annie Claudina.
Mr Hogg, MP for Beverley, 1834-47, Barrister, was appointed a Privy Counsellor in 1872.

He was created a baronet, in 1846, denominated of Upper Grosvenor Street, Middlesex.

Sir James was succeeded by his eldest son,

SIR JAMES MACNAGHTEN McGAREL-HOGG, 2nd Baronet (1823-90), KCB, who wedded, in 1857, Caroline Elizabeth Emma, daughter of Edward, 1st Baron Penrhyn, and had issue,
JAMES DOUGLAS, his successor;
DUDLEY STUART, succeeded his brother;
RONALD TRACEY, succeeded his brother;
Archibald Campbell;
Edith Mary.
Sir James was elevated to the peerage, in 1887, by the title BARON MAGHERAMORNE, of Magheramorne, County Antrim.

His lordship added the surname of McGAREL in 1877 on inheriting the estates of Charles McGarel, his brother-in-law.

The 1st Baron, of Magheramorne House, County Antrim, was succeeded by his eldest son,

JAMES DOUGLAS, 2nd Baron (1861-1903),
Born in London and was a captain in the Life Guards. He married Lady Evelyn Ashley-Cooper one year before succeeding to the titles. Seemingly the 2nd Baron lived a dissolute life, and was unsuccessful in business. He was declared bankrupt in 1900 in Dublin and died just over two years later in Paris. 
The 2nd Baron was succeeded in the family honours by his brother,

DUDLEY STUART, 3rd Baron (1863-1946), 2nd son of the 1st Baron. In later life he retired to Bournemouth and was living in a nursing home in Surrey at the time of his death.

The family honours devolved upon his brother,

RONALD TRACY, 4th Baron (1863-1957), who died in 1957 aged 93 and was unmarried, when the barony became extinct, though the baronetcy remains extant.
As of 2006, the presumed 9th Hogg Baronet has not successfully proven his succession, and is consequently not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. However, the succession is under review by the Registrar of the Baronetage.
The merchant and philanthropist Quintin Hogg, 7th son of the 1st Hogg Baronet, was the father of Douglas Hogg, 1st Viscount Hailsham, twice Lord Chancellor of the United Kingdom.
