The Paul Baronetcy, of Rodborough in the County of Gloucester, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 3 September 1762 for the clothier Onesiphorus Paul, who was High Sheriff of Gloucestershire in 1760. The second Baronet was a philanthropist and prison reformer and also served as High Sheriff of Gloucestershire in 1780. The title became extinct on his death in 1820.

The Paul Baronetcy, of Paulville in the County of Carlow, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 20 January 1794 for Joshua Paul. The title became extinct on the death of the sixth Baronet in 1961.

The Paul Baronetcy, of Rodborough in the County of Gloucester, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 3 September 1821 for John Paul. The second Baronet was involved in the banking firm Strahan, Paul & Co, but was convicted of fraud. The title became extinct on the death of the sixth Baronet in 1972.
