The Shakespeare Baronetcy, of Lakenham in the City of Norwich, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1942 for the Liberal politician Geoffrey Shakespeare. The third Baronet is a geneticist and sociologist.

The Shakespeare baronets descend from Richard Shakespeare, the grandfather of the playwright William Shakespeare.[1]
