Sir Abe Bailey, 1st Baronet, by Spy

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Bailey, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Both creations are extant as of 2010.

The Bailey Baronetcy, of Glanusk Park in the County of Brecon, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 5 July 1852. For more information on this creation, see Baron Glanusk.

The Bailey Baronetcy, of Cradock in the Province of the Cape of Good Hope in the Union of South Africa, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 12 February 1919 for the South African diamond magnate and politician Abe Bailey. His eldest son, the second Baronet, married Diana Churchill, eldest child of Winston Churchill. However, they were divorced in 1935. The second Baronet was succeeded by his half-brother, the third Baronet. He was the son of the first Baronet by his second wife the Honourable Mary Westenra, an aviator. The third Baronet was also an influential businessman. As of 2010 the title is held by his son, the fourth Baronet, who succeeded in 2009.
