The Baynes Baronetcy, of Harefield Place in the County of Middlesex, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 29 June 1801 for Christopher Baynes.[1] He was Major-Commandant of the Uxbridge Gentlemen and Yeomanry Cavalry, which he helped to raise. The title descended from father to son until the death of his great-great-grandson, the fifth Baronet, in 1971. The late Baronet died unmarried and was succeeded by his first cousin, the sixth Baronet. He was the son of Reverend Malcolm Charles Baynes, fourth son of the third Baronet. As of 2012 the title is held by his grandson, the eighth Baronet, who succeeded his father in 2005.
