The Grove Baronetcy, of Ferne House, in the parish of Donhead St Andrew in the County of Wiltshire, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created on 18 March 1874 for Thomas Grove, Liberal Member of Parliament for Wiltshire South and Wilton.

The Grove family descends from John Grove, who settled in Wiltshire in the 15th century. A later member of the family, William Grove (d. 1582), represented Shaftesbury in the House of Commons and purchased the Ferne estate in 1563.

The presumed fourth Baronet never successfully proved his succession and was never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. As of 2007 the presumed fifth and present Baronet has also not successfully proven his succession and is therefore not on the Official Roll, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1962.
