The Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes Baronetcy, of Banbury in the County of Oxford, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1916 for the Liberal politician the Honourable Eustace Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, who had previously represented Banbury in Parliament. He was the second son of John Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, 17th Baron Saye and Sele. The baronetcy is currently held by his grandson, the third Baronet, a well-known adventurer and third cousin of actors Joseph and Ralph Fiennes. As a descendant of the 17th Baron Saye and Sele, he is also in remainder to this title.
