Biography: 

Peter Venables, Baron of Kinderton in Cheshire, was the third but only surviving son of Thomas Venables, Baron Kinderton, and his only son by his second wife, Anne, daughter of Sir Cotton Gargrave of Nostall in Yorkshire. He succeeded his father in the Barony in 1606 at the age of two. He married twice, firstly, Mary, daughter of Sir Richard Wilbraham of Woodhey, and secondly, Frances, youngest daughter of Sir Hugh Cholmondeley of Cholmondeley, and sister of Sir Robert, who was created a Baronet, and afterwards Earl of Leinster. The only son of his first marriage, Thomas Venables, predeceased him, and at his death, he was succeeded by his grandson, Peter Venables, who died 19 January 1679 without male issue. The Barony of Kinderton passed through the female line to George Venables Vernon, who was created Lord Vernon 12 May 1762. The Barony of Kinderton was a medieval Barony of the Earldom of Chester, and belonged to the owner of certain estates, but was not a Parliamentary Barony. It carried no seat in the House of Lords and therefore was not a peerage.
