There have been two baronetcies created for members of the Reade (or Read) family, both in the Baronetage of England. As of 2014 one creation is extant.

The Reade Baronetcy, of Brocket Hall in the County of Hertford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 16 March 1642 for John Reade. The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1712.[1]

The Reade Baronetcy, of Barton in the County of Berkshire (now Oxfordshire), was created in the Baronetage of England on 4 March 1661 for Compton Reade. He was the nephew of the first Baronet of the 1642 creation. The fourth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Cricklade. Lieutenant-General George Reade, fourth son of the second Baronet, was Member of Parliament for Tewkesbury.[2] As of 28 February 2014 the present Baronet has not successfully proven his succession and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1982.[3]
