Baron Abinger, of Abinger in the County of Surrey and of the City of Norwich, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 12 January 1835 for the prominent lawyer and politician Sir James Scarlett, the Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer. Lord Abinger was succeeded by his eldest son, the second Baron. He represented Norwich and Horsham in the House of Commons. He was succeeded by his son, the third Baron. He was a lieutenant-general in the army and fought in the Crimean War. On the death of his son, the fourth Baron, the line of the eldest son of the first Baron failed. The late Baron was succeeded by his second cousin, the fifth Baron. He was the grandson of Hon. Peter Campbell Scarlett, third son of the first Baron. When he died the title passed to his younger brother, the sixth Baron, and then to another brother, the seventh Baron. As of 2010 the title is held by the latter's grandson, the ninth Baron, who succeeded his father in 2002.

The Hon. Sir James Yorke Scarlett, second son of the first Baron, was a general in the army and fought in the Crimean War. The Hon. Mary Elizabeth, daughter of the first Baron, was created Baroness Stratheden in 1836. She was the wife of John Campbell, 1st Baron Campbell.
