Sir James Paget, 1st Baronet

There have been three baronetcies created for persons with the surname Paget, all in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom, and a fourth created for the Bayly, which later became the Paget Baronetcy. As of 2016, two of the creations are extant.

The Paget Baronetcy, of Harewood Place in the County of Middlesex, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 19 August 1871 for the surgeon and pathologist James Paget.[1] The Right Reverend Francis Paget, second son of the first Baronet, was Bishop of Oxford. His son Sir Bernard Paget was a General in the British Army. The latter was the father of the fourth Baronet. Stephen Paget, another son of the first Baronet, was also a noted surgeon. As of 2016 the title is held by his great-great-grandson, the fifth Baronet, who succeeded his father, in 2016. The fourth Baronet was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the British Army and author. He wrote The Yeoman of the Guard (1984), Second to none: the Coldstream Guards, 1650–2000 (2000), and a number of other military histories. He served in the Coldstream Guards from 1940 to 1968 and was a Gentleman Usher to Queen Elizabeth II from 1971 to 1991, and an Extra Gentleman Usher from 1991.[2]

The Paget Baronetcy, of Cranmore Hall in the parish of East Cranmore in the County of Somerset, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 6 March 1886 for the Conservative politician Richard Paget.[3] The second Baronet was married to Lady Muriel Paget, and had issue, including the third Baronet. He was also a great-grandfather of the actress Anna Chancellor through his daughter Sylvia, Lady Chancellor (wife of Christopher Chancellor) and her elder son John.

The Paget Baronetcy, of Sutton Bonington in the County of Nottingham, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 25 September 1897 Ernest Paget,[4] Chairman of the Midland Railway.
