The Staples Baronetcy, of Lissan in the County of Tyrone, was a title in the Baronetage of Ireland. It was created on 18 July 1628 for Thomas Staples, who later served as High Sheriff of County Tyrone. The ninth Baronet was a prominent lawyer. Following the death of the seventeenth Baronet in November 2013, the title is now dormant.[1]

The long-serving MP John Staples was grandson of the fourth Baronet, brother-in-law of the seventh Baronet, father of the ninth Baronet, grandfather of the tenth Baronet and great great grandfather of the author CS Lewis. The lines of the Marquesses of Ormonde, Earls of Clancarty, and Barons Ponsonby and Clermont can be traced back to his daughters. Thomas Staples, younger brother of the tenth Baronet, was a Major-General in the British Army.

The twelfth Baronet, Sir Robert Ponsonby Staples was a well-known artist, good friend of King Edward VII and member of the Café Royal set.

The family seat is Lissan House, near Cookstown, County Tyrone.
