The title of Duke of Grafton was created in 1675 by Charles II of England for his 2nd illegitimate son by the Duchess of Cleveland, Henry FitzRoy. The most famous duke was probably Augustus FitzRoy, 3rd Duke of Grafton, who served as Prime Minister in the 1760s. The family seat is Euston Hall in Suffolk.
In 1900 the Duke of Grafton was listed a lord of the manor & principal landlowner in the parish of Barnham. He also owned a tile & brick field and restored the parish church, dedicated to St Gregory).
