There has been six baronetcies created for persons with the surname Shaw, one in the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia and four in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two of the creations extant as of 2010.

The Shaw, later Best-Shaw Baronetcy, of Eltham in the County of Kent, was created in the Baronetage of England on 15 April 1665. For more information on this creation, see Best-Shaw baronets.

The Shaw Baronetcy, of Greenock in the County of Renfrew, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 28 June 1687 for John Shaw. The third Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Renfrewshire and Clackmannanshire. The title became extinct on his death in 1752, when his estates went to his relative Sir John Stewart, who adopted the additional surname Shaw. His succession continued as the Shaw Stewart baronets of Greenock and Blackhall.

The Shaw Baronetcy, of Kilmarnock in the County of Ayr, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 21 September 1809 for James Shaw, Lord Mayor of London in 1805 and Member of Parliament for the City of London, with normal remainder to the heirs male of his body. He obtained a new patent on 14 January 1813 with remainder to his nephew, John Shaw. On Shaw's death in 1843 the 1809 creation became extinct while he was succeeded in the 1813 creation according to the special remainder by his nephew, the second Baronet. However, on the latter's death in 1868 this creation became extinct as well.

The Shaw Baronetcy, of Bushy Park in the County of Dublin, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 17 August 1821 for the Tory politician Robert Shaw. The third Baronet was also a politician. George Shaw, second son of the third Baronet, was a Major-General in the British Army.

The Shaw Baronetcy, of Wolverhampton in the County of Stafford, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 30 November 1908 for Charles Shaw, Member of Parliament for Stafford. The title became extinct on his death in 1942.
