This line is thought to have descended from Robert Perrot, of the Oxford branch of the family. However, the use of 'Henry Dive' as a family name links them to a group of Perrots living in Kent in the 1590's (Perrett, 1985).

Sir Herbert Charles Perrot, last of the baronets, was granted use of the traditional Perrot arms on 18 Sep 1911 (Grants 80/292), retroactive to 1716, when the baronetcy was first created. Woodcock (1984), the Somerset Herald, wrote that the conferring of arms did not appear to be based on any descent. There is also a question as to whether the baronetcy was legitimately created in first place (Nichols, 1874; Perrett, 1985), such that J.G. Nichols (1874) said ofSir Richard Perrott, the second Baronet was "One of the most, daring pretenders to title and pedigree in the last (i.e. 18th) century".

Sir Herbert Charles Perrot died without male heirs in 1922, ending the baronetcy. However, descendants Sir Herbert's uncle or granduncle are suspected of having emigrated to Australia (Perrett 1985). The pedigree below is based on the information provided by Parrett (1985).

    General Notes: For an analysis on Richard and his baronetage, see Nichols, 1874: Sir Richard Perrott, a soi-disant baronet

    Note: A reported birthdate of 1716 cannot be right, unless he married at age 66 and started having children. More likely, we has born ~1740, which jives better with 1728, the reported birthdate for his father. 1716 is the date when the baronetcy was said to have been created by his uncle.

    "Sir Richard Perrott, second Baronet and a charlatan, pretended to be one, and has been occasionally mentioned as such in different contexts.

    General Notes: Interestingly, a Henry Dive married Alice Paret in Tonbridge on 3 Nov 1622, Kent. A Robert Perret also appears as the father of several children baptised between 1592 and 1614, so this branch could have originated in Kent.

    General Notes: The Times of 6 July 1939

    Lady Perrott died on Tuesday at Withypool, Minehead, Somerset. She was Ethel Lucy Hare, daughther of the late Captain Marcus Hare, R.N. A correspondent writes:--

    Lady Perrott devoted the unremitting service of a lifetime to a cause with which the name of her husband is very closely associated. Sir Herbert Perrott held high executive office in the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Lady Perrott was appointed the first Lady Superintendent-in-Chief of the St. John Ambulance Brigade by King George V and immediately threw herself into the work whih an enthusiasm that never flagged. She reorganized the whole of the nursing service, instituted a more suitable and becoming uniform in place of the heavy black serge dress which was then regulation, and made a personal inspection of every Nursing Division of the Brigade throughout the country in order to satisfy herself of the efficiency of each unit of the organization under her control. The value of the training that was being given to the Nursing Division was fully recognized and in 1911 Lady Perrott was appointed Lady-in-Chief of the Women's County Companies of the Territorial Branch of the Ambulance Department of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Subsequently those County Companies became known as Voluntary Aid Detachments.

    At the oubreak of the Great War the national advantage of the excellent training whcih the Nursing Divisions had been receiving became immediately apparent; inasmuch as Lady Perrott was able to send out at once a larage number of members versed in hospital routine and ready to act as probationers to trained nurses in war zones. The despatch of nursing sisters was not, however, the only War-time service in which Lady Perrott was interested. In August, 1914, a Women's Committee of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem had been instituted, of which Lady Perrott was honorary secretary. This committee was responsible for the formation of the St. John Warehouse, where necessities for the relief and comfort of soldier patients were made and despatched. Lady Perrott was a member of the original committee for the organization of the St. John Ambulance Brigade Hospital in France. She was the means of collecting some £17,000 for the support of this hospital. She went to France and worked personally in the hospital and was actually there during the time when the hospital came under enemy fire. In 1915 her services had already proved so valuable that she was decorated with the R.R.C. First Class.

    In 1928 the Order of St. John of Jerusalem was by the King's command enlarged by the addition of the rank of Dame Grand Cross, together with the corresponding order of Knight Grand Cross for Knights of the Order. Lady Perrott thereupon was promoted from the previous highest rank of Lady of Justice to become a Dame Grand Cross of the Order.
