Falkiner Baronets

Falkiner Baronets

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Falkiner, one in the Baronetage of Ireland and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is believed to be extant as of 2008.

The Falkiner Baronetcy, of Anne Mount, in the County of Cork, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 24 August 1778 for Sir Riggs Falkiner, 1st Baronet. He was the great-grandson of Michael Falkiner, originally of Brigart, Leeds, who had settled in Ireland in the 1650s, and represented Clonakilty and Castlemartyr in the Irish House of Commons. The fourth Baronet was a Captain in the Royal Navy. The fifth Baronet was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the British Army and served throughout the Peninsular War. As of 13 June 2007 the presumed tenth and present Baronet has not successfully proven his succession to the title, and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1997.

The Falkiner Baronetcy, of Abbotstown in the County of Dublin, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 21 December 1812 for Frederick Falkiner, who had earlier represented County Dublin in the House of Commons. The title became extinct on his death in 1824.
