The Vane-Fletcher, later Fletcher-Vane Baronetcy, of Hutton-in-the-Forest in the County of Cumberland, was a title in the Baronetage of Great Britain. [1] [2] It was created on 27 June 1786 for Lionel Vane-Fletcher. [2] His son, the second Baronet, was a Member of Parliament for Winchelsea and Carlisle. [2] He assumed the surname of Fletcher-Vane in lieu of Vane-Fletcher. [2] The fifth Baronet was involved in the Scouting movement. [3] The title became extinct on his death in 1934. [3]

The family estates at Hutton-in-the-Forest passed to William Vane, a distant kinsman of the Fletcher-Vane baronets, who took the surname Fletcher-Vane in 1931 and was created Baron Inglewood in 1964. [4] The surname reflects descent from the Fletcher baronets of Hutton, but Inglewood was not a descendant of the Fletcher family, unlike the Fletcher-Vane baronets who were direct descendants. [2]
