WP:PEERAGE and the the guideline Wikipedia:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility) make the same point but it is most clearly stated in the guideline:

  • A baronet should never be referred to with the title but without "Sir" preceding (e.g. do not use "William Williams, 2nd Baronet, of Clapton"
