About Augusta Browne, 1st Baroness Bolsover

Baron Bolsover, of Bolsover Castle in the County of Derby, was a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 23 April 1880 (as Baroness Bolsover) for Augusta Cavendish-Bentinck, with remainder to the heirs male of the body of her late husband Lieutenant-General Arthur Cavendish-Bentinck (1819–1877), younger son of Lord Charles Bentinck, third son of William Cavendish-Bentinck, 3rd Duke of Portland. Lady Bolsover was the daughter of the Reverend Henry Montague Browne, Dean of Lismore, second son of James Caulfield Browne, 2nd Baron Kilmaine. She was succeeded according to the special remainder by her stepson William Cavendish-Bentinck, 6th Duke of Portland, who became the second Baron Bolsover. He was the only child from Arthur Cavendish-Bentinck's first marriage, to Elizabeth Sophia Hawkins-Whitshed.

The barony remained united with the dukedom until the death of the sixth Duke's son, the seventh Duke, in 1977. The dukedom was passed on to a cousin while the barony became extinct.
