Baron Brocket, of Brocket Hall in the County of Hertford, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 19 January 1933 for the businessman Sir Charles Nall-Cain, 1st Baronet.[1] He was Chairman of the brewing firm of Robert Cain & Sons (later Walker Cain Ltd), which had been founded by his father Robert Cain. Before his elevation to the peerage, Nall-Cain had been created a baronet, of the Node, in 1921. His son, the second Baron, represented Wavertree in the House of Commons as a Conservative. As of 2017 the titles are held by the latter's grandson, the third Baron, who succeeded in 1967.

Another member of the family was William Ernest Cain, elder brother of the first Baron Brocket. He was created a baronet, of Wargrave in the County of Berkshire, in 1920. This title became extinct in 1969.

The barons' Latin motto is Felis demulcta mitis (A stroked cat is gentle).

The family seat is Brocket Hall, near Hatfield, Hertfordshire. The family also previously owned Bramshill Park, near Bramshill, Hampshire and Carton House, County Kildare, Ireland.
