Baron Joicey, of Chester-le-Street in the County of Durham,[1] is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1906 for the coal mining magnate and former Liberal Member of Parliament for Chester-le-Street, Sir James Joicey, 1st Baronet. He had already been created a baronet, of Longhirst and of Ulgham, both in the County of Northumberland, in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1893.[2] He was succeeded by his eldest son, the second Baron. He was High Sheriff of County Durham in 1910. Two of his younger brothers, the third and fourth Barons, both succeeded in the title. As of 2010 the titles are held by the latter's eldest son, the fifth Baron, who succeeded in 1993.
