There have been three baronetcies created for persons with the surname Stuart, one in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia, one in the Baronetage of England and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two of the creations are extant as of 2008.

The Stuart, later Crichton-Stuart Baronetcy, of Bute, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 28 March 1627. For more information on this creation, see the Marquess of Bute.

The Steward, later Stuart Baronetcy, of Hartley Mauduit in the County of Southampton, was created in the Baronetage of England on 27 June 1660 for Nicholas Steward, Chamberlain of the Exchequer and Member of Parliament for Lymington. The second Baronet, grandson of the first, was also Chamberlain of the Exchequer and represented Southampton and Hampshire in the House of Commons. He changed the spelling of the family surname from Steward to Stuart. The third Baronet also sat as Member of Parliament for Hampshire. In 1829, on the death of his grandfather John Luttrell-Olmius, 3rd Earl of Carhampton (on whose death the earldom became extinct; see Earl of Carhampton), the fifth Baronet was offered a fresh patent of the earldom by King George IV. However, the offer was declined. The presumed eighth never successfully proved his succession to the title and was never on the Official Roll of the Baronetage. Likewise, as of 13 June 2007 the presumed ninth Baronet has not successfully proven his succession and is therefore not on the Official Roll of the Baronetage, with the baronetcy considered dormant since 1939.

The Stuart Baronetcy, of Oxford in the County of Oxford, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 5 May 1841 for the lawyer, judge and politician James Stuart. The title became extinct on the death of the fourth Baronet in 1915. Andrew Stuart, brother of the first Baronet, was a lawyer and politician. His son, Andrew Stuart, was a lawyer, judge, seigneur and businessman. George Okill Stuart, another brother of the first Baronet, was a clergyman. His son, George Okill Stuart, Jr., was a lawyer, judge and political figure.
