There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Armstrong, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is extant as of 2010.

The Armstrong Baronetcy, of Gallen Priory in the King's County, was created on 18 September 1841 for Andrew Armstrong,[1] Receiver-General of Stamps in Ireland and Member of Parliament for King's County. The third Baronet was High Sheriff of King's County in 1914. The Armstrong family was originally from the Scottish Borders. Andrew Armstrong, ancestor and namesake of the first Baronet, settled in County Fermanagh in the early 17th century.[2]

The Armstrong Baronetcy, of Ashburn Place in the County of London, was created on 19 October 1892 for George Armstrong,[3] owner of The Globe newspaper. The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1944.
