There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Gooch, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

Gooch Baronets of Benacre Hall[edit]

The Gooch Baronetcy of Benacre Hall, in the County of Suffolk,[1] was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 4 November 1746 for William Gooch,[2] Lieutenant Governor of Virginia from 1727 to 1749. The second Baronet was Bishop of Bristol, Norwich and Ely. He married Mary Sherlock, daughter of William Sherlock, Dean of St. Paul. Since then, the Sherlock surname has been used by most succeeding generations as a middle name. The fourth Baronet served as High Sheriff of Suffolk in 1785. The fifth Baronet represented the Suffolk county constituency in the House of Commons from 1806 to 1830. The sixth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Suffolk East between 1846 and 1856.
