The Jehangir Baronetcy, of Bombay, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 16 July 1908 for Cowasjee Jehanghir, an influential member of the Parsee community in Bombay. He was the nephew and adopted son and heir of the Parsee community leader, philanthropist and industrialist Cowasji Jehangir Readymoney. By Special Act of the Legislative Council of India in 1911, it was decided that all future holders were to assume the name of the first Baronet on succeeding. The first Baronet was succeeded by his son, the second Baronet, who became a prominent politician.
