There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Gibbons, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. One creation is extant as of 2012.

The Gibbons Baronetcy, of Stanwell Place in the County of Middlesex, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 21 April 1752 for Sir William Gibbons, Speaker of the House of Assembly, Barbados. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Stockbridge and Wallingford. The fifth Baronet was High Sheriff of Middlesex in 1891. Two other members of the family may also be mentioned.

Sir William Kenrick Gibbons (1876–1957), son of Sir William Gibbons, grandson of Robert Gibbons, fourth son of the second Baronet, was Clerk of the House of Commons.
