Sir Thomas Hardy, 1st Baronet

There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Hardy, both in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. The first creation became extinct on the death of the first baronet in 1839 and the second creation became extinct on the death of the fifth baronet in 2017.

The Hardy Baronetcy, of the Navy, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 4 February 1806 for the prominent naval commander Vice-Admiral Thomas Hardy.[1] The title became extinct on his death in 1839.

The Hardy Baronetcy, of Dunstall Hall in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 23 February 1876 for the Conservative politician John Hardy,[2] who had previously represented Midhurst, Dartmouth and Warwickshire South in the House of Commons. He was the son of John Hardy and the elder brother of the Conservative politician Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy, 1st Earl of Cranbrook. The second Baronet was High Sheriff of Staffordshire in 1893.

The title became extinct on the death without a male heir of Sir Richard Hardy, 5th Baronet in 2017. [3]
