There have been two baronetcies created for members of the Barkham family, both in the Baronetage of England. Both creations are extinct.

The Barkham Baronetcy, of South Acre in the County of Norfolk, was created in the Baronetage of England on 26 June 1623 for Edward Barkham, later Member of Parliament for Boston. He was the son of Sir Edward Barkham (d. 1634), Lord Mayor of London from 1621 to 1622. Barkham was succeeded by his elder son Edward, the second Baronet. He was Sheriff of Norfolk between 1667 and 1668. He died without male issue and was succeeded by his younger brother, William, the third Baronet. He had no surviving male issue and on his death in 1695 the baronetcy became extinct.[1]

The Barkham Baronetcy, of Wainflete in the County of Lincoln, was created in the Baronetage of England on 21 July 1661 for Edward Barkham. He was the son of Sir Robert Barkham, younger brother of the first Baronet of South Acre. The title became extinct on the death of Barkham's grandson, the third Baronet, in 1711.
