Arms of the Russell Baronets, of Charlton Park

There have been seven baronetcies created for persons with the surname Russell, three in the Baronetage of England and four in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Wytley in the County of Worcester (i.e. Witley Court, Great Witley), was created in the Baronetage of England on 12 March 1627 for William Russell. He represented Worcestershire in the House of Commons. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Tewkesbury. The title became extinct on his death in 1705.[1]

The Russell Baronetcy, of Chippenham in the County of Cambridge, was created in the Baronetage of England on 19 January 1629 for William Russell. He represented Windsor in Parliament. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Cambridgeshire. The title is presumed to have become extinct on the death of the tenth Baronet in 1804.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Langherne in the County of Carmarthen, was created in the Baronetage of England on 8 November 1660 for William Russell. The title became extinct on his death in about 1714.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Swallowfield in the County of Berkshire, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 10 December 1812 for Henry Russell. He was Chief Justice of Bengal and was admitted to the Privy Council in 1816. The third Baronet represented Berkshire and Westminster in the House of Commons as a Conservative and was also awarded the Victoria Cross. The fourth Baronet sat as Conservative Member of Parliament for East Berkshire. The sixth Baronet was a noted mineralogist. The presumed seventh Baronet never successfully proved his succession and was never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. As a consequence, the presumed eighth and present Baronet has not proved his succession and is not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1964.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Charlton Park in the County of Gloucester, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 9 April 1832 for William Russell. The second Baronet represented Dover and Norwich in the House of Commons. The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1915.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Littleworth Corner in Burnham in the County of Buckingham, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 18 January 1916 for Charles Russell, a senior partner in the firm of Charles Russell and Co, solicitors. He was the second son of Charles Russell, Baron Russell of Killowen, the elder brother of Frank Russell, Baron Russell of Killowen, and the uncle of Charles Ritchie Russell, Baron Russell of Killowen. The baronetcy was created with remainder, failing heirs male of the grantee, to the heirs male of his father.

The Russell Baronetcy, of Olney in the County of Durham, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 20 June 1917 for Thomas Wallace Russell, for many years Member of Parliament for Tyrone South and Tyrone North. The title became extinct on his death in 1920.
