The Lever Baronetcy, of Hans Crescent in Chelsea, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 8 February 1911 for the Liberal politician Arthur Lever. Born Arthur Levy, he assumed the surname of Lever in lieu of Levy by deed poll in 1896 and by Royal licence in 1911.

Jewish Chronicle Obituary, 28 August 1924

SIR ARTHUR LEVY LEVER, BART. : The death occurred last Saturday, at his residence, The Grange, Knockholt, Kent, of Colonel Sir Arthur Levy Lever. Bart. The deceased, who was in his sixty-third year, had been in indifferent health for some months, following a serious operation which he underwent last year. Sir Arthur, who was born in Leicester, adopted the name of Lever, his surname having originally been Levy. He was a son of Mr. Joseph Levy, of Leicester, and, like his father, was interested in the well-known clothing Arm, Levy and Hart, of that town. From 1906 to 1910 he was M.P for the Harwich Division of North-East Essex, being then defeated at the General Election. Some months later he stood for South Wolverhampton, but his candidature was unsuccessful. He was created a Baronet in 1911. Sir Arthur represented Central Hackney from 1922 until last year. He was an adherent of the Liberal Party. The deceased served in the war, first in France with the Royal Fusiliers, and later on the Headquarters Staff of the Southern Command, retiring with the rank of Colonel. Sir Arthur received his early education at Northwick College, of which the late Rev, A. P. Mendes was Headmaster. He took no part in communal affairs. He married Beatrice Hilda, third daughter of the late Mr. Philip Falk, who died during the war from blood-poisoning, contracted as a result of voluntary nursing at hospital. The title passes to the deceased's son, Mr. Tresham Joseph Lever; The funeral was on Tuesday at the cemetery of the West London Synagogue, of which he was a member.
