There have been three Wyndham Baronetcies, all created in the Baronetage of England. All were created for descendants of Sir John Wyndham (d.1573) of Orchard Wyndham in the parish of Watchet, Somerset, by his wife Elizabeth Sydenham, daughter and co-heiress of Sir John Sydenham of Orchard Sydenham (later renamed Orchard Wyndham). He was a grandson of Sir John Wyndham (executed Tower Hill 1502/3) of Felbrigg, Norfolk, by his first wife Lady Margaret Howard, 4th daughter of John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk.
