There have been three Baronetcies created for persons with the surname Bernard, one in the Baronetage of England, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Two of the creations are extinct while one is still extant.

The Bernard Baronetcy, of Huntingdon in the County of Huntingdon, was created in the Baronetage of England on 1 July 1662 for Robert Bernard, who represented Huntingdon in the House of Commons. His son, the second Baronet, and grandson, the third Baronet, also represented this constituency in tn Parliament. The latter's grandson, the fifth Baronet, sat as Member of Parliament for Huntingdon and Westminster. On his death in 1789 the baronetcy became extinct.

The Bernard Baronetcy, of Nettleham in the County of Lincoln, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 5 April 1769 for Francis Bernard. He was colonial Governor of New Jersey and Massachusetts Bay. His younger son, the fourth Baronet, sat as Member of Parliament for Aylesbury and for St Mawes and served under William Pitt the Younger as Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department. In 1789 he assumed by Royal license the additional surname of Tyringham and in 1811 the surname of Morland in lieu of Tyringham. His younger son, the sixth Baronet, also represented Aylesbury in the House of Commons. On his death in 1883 without surviving male issue the baronetcy became extinct.
