There have been three baronetcies created for persons with the surname Osborne, two in the baronetage of England and one in the baronetage of Ireland. Two creations are extant.

The Osborne Baronetcy, of Kiveton in the County of York, was created in the Baronetage of England on 13 July 1620.[1] For more information on this creation, see the Duke of Leeds.[2]

The Osborne, later Osborn Baronetcy, of Chicksands in the County of Bedford, was created in the Baronetage of England on 11 February 1662. For more information on this creation, see Osborn baronets.

The Osborne Baronetcy, of Ballentaylor and Ballylemon in County Waterford, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 15 October 1629 for Richard Osborne. The second and seventh baronets represented County Waterford in the Irish House of Commons, the eighth Baronet represented Carysfort while the eleventh baronet sat in Parliament for Carysfort and Enniskillen. The eleventh baronet voted against the Act of Union in 1799 in order to retain Ireland's independence from Great Britain and voted against again in 1800 before the legislation was finally enacted.[3] The former British Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt Hon George Osborne, is heir apparent to his family's Irish baronetcy; the former family seat was Newtown Anner House, County Tipperary.[4]
