Sir Edward Grey,
3rd Baronet of Fallodon

There have been three baronetcies created for members of the Grey family, one in the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two of the creations are extant as of 2007.

The Grey Baronetcy, of Chillingham in the County of Northumberland, was created in the Baronetage of England on 15 June 1619 for William Grey. For more information on this creation, see Baron Grey of Werke.

The Grey Baronetcy, of Howick in the County of Northumberland, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 11 January 1746 for Henry Grey. He was a descendant of an uncle of the first Baronet of the 1619 creation. Henry Grey's third son, the third Baronet, had already been created Earl Grey when he succeeded his elder brother in 1808. For more information on the baronetcy, see this title.

The Grey Baronetcy, of Fallodon in the County of Northumberland, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 29 July 1814 for the Hon. George Grey,[1] Captain R.N., 1767–1828, Commissioner of Portsmouth Dockyard. He was the third son of the first Earl Grey. His son, the second Baronet, and great-grandson, the third Baronet, were both prominent Liberal politicians. The latter was raised to the Peerage of the United Kingdom as Viscount Grey of Fallodon, in the County of Northumberland, in 1916. However, this title became extinct on his death in 1933. As a descendant of the first Earl Grey the present Baronet is also in remainder to this peerage and its subsidiary titles, including the Grey Baronetcy of Howick.
