Sir Isaac Astley, 1st Baronet (died 7 September 1659)[1] was an English baronet.


He was the second son of Thomas Astley and Frances Drane, daughter of George Deane.[2] Astley was High Sheriff of Warwickshire in 1641 and High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1645.[3] Having been knighted in 1641, he was created a baronet, of Melton Constable, in the County of Norfolk by King Charles I of England on 21 January 1642.[3]

Astley married firstly Rachel Messenger, daughter of Augustine Messenger, and secondly Bridget Coke, daughter of John Coke.[4] Both marriages were childless.[4] Astley was buried in Melton Constable in Norfolk and with his death the baronetcy became extinct.[3] The heir of his estates was his nephew Sir Jacob Astley, 1st Baronet.[2]
