There have been five baronetcies created for members of the Bowyer family: three in the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Three of the titles are extinct while the remaining extant baronetcies have been united in one holder. The Bowyer Baronets are all descended from Thomas Bowyer who late in the 14th century married Katherine de Knypersley of Knypersley Hall in Staffordshire.

The Bowyer Baronetcy, of Leighthorne in the County of Sussex, was created in the Baronetage of England on 23 July 1627 for Thomas Bowyer.

On Bowyer's death in 1680 the baronetcy of 1627 became extinct while he was succeeded in the 1678 creation by the aforementioned Henry Goring. For further history of this title, see Goring baronets.
