There have been four creations of baronetcies with the surname Baker. They are listed in order of creation.

Baker of Sisinghurst, Kent (1611)[edit]

A family with the surname of Baker settled in Kent at Cranbrooke in the 14th century. In 1480 Sir John Baker (1488-1558), Attorney General, Speaker of the British House of Commons and Chancellor of the Exchequer, acquired an estate at Sissinghurst where his son Richard Baker (1528-1574) built Sissinghurst Castle. A grandson of Sir John was Richard Baker (chronicler).[1]

The Baronetcy was created in the Baronetage of England on 29 June 1611 for Henry Baker of Siissinghurst Castle grandson of Richard Baker. The second Baronet served as High Sheriff of Kent in 1635. The Baronetcy was extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1661.[2]
