Admiral Edward Russell,
1st Earl of Orford
Earl of Orford is a title that has been created three times. The first creation came in the Peerage of England in 1697 in favour of the naval commander Edward Russell, who served three times as First Lord of the Admiralty. He was created Baron Shingay and Viscount Barfleur at the same time. A member of the influential Russell family, he was the son of Edward Russell, younger brother of William Russell, 1st Duke of Bedford. Lord Orford had no children and the titles became extinct on his death in 1727.

The title was later created in the Peerage of Great Britain in 1742 and in the Peerage of the United Kingdom in 1806, both times for members of the Walpole family. For information on these titles see the Baron Walpole.
