The Hartopp-Cradock baronetcy came about as follows: with the death of Sir Edmund Hartopp in 1762, the Hartopp baronetcy expired, and his estate was inherited by his daughter Anne. She married Joseph Hurlock, a director of The East India Company, and was succeeded in turn by a daughter, also Anne. This second Anne was a double heiress, both to her parents and to the Fleetwood property in the county of Norfolk, which she received by bequest. She married in 1777 Edmund Bunney, Esq., whose mother's maiden name was Cradock and who was created a baronet, assuming by authority both surnames (Burke's Peerage, Baronatage and Knightage, London, 1841, p. 510).
