The title Baron Maltravers or Mautravers was created in the Peerage of England on 25 January and 23 October 1330 when John Maltravers was summoned to Parliament by writs directed Iohanni Mautravers Iuniori. The barony fell into abeyance among his granddaughters and coheirs, Joan and Eleanor, at his death on 16 February 1364. At the death of Joan without issue, Eleanor became, according to modern doctrine, de jure Baroness Maltravers. The barony later became a subsidiary title of the Earl of Arundel and subsequently the Duke of Norfolk.
