Baron Archer, of Umberslade in the County of Warwick, was a title in the Peerage of Great Britain. It was created on 7 July 1747 for Thomas Archer,[1] who had previously represented Warwick and Bramber in the House of Commons. He was succeeded by his son, the second Baron. He sat as Member of Parliament for Coventry. The title became extinct on his death in 1778. The first Baron was the son of Andrew Archer, the grandson of Thomas Archer, the great-grandson of Sir Simon Archer and the nephew of the architect Thomas Archer.

The family seat was Umberslade Hall, Warwickshire, where they are recorded as early as the reign of Henry II.
