There have been two baronetcies created for persons with the surname Prescott, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.

The Prescott Baronetcy, of Theobald's Park in the County of Hertford, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 9 December 1794 for George William Prescott. The title became extinct on the death of the seventh Baronet in 1959.

The Prescott Baronetcy, of Godmanchester in the County of Huntingdon, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 30 June 1938 for William Prescott. He was a Colonel in the Army, represented Tottenham North in the House of Commons as a Coalition Conservative and served as Chairman of the Middlesex County Council. The third Baronet is a racehorse trainer at Heath House Stables near Newmarket Racecourse.

Stanley Prescott, second and youngest son of the first Baronet and the father of the third Baronet, sat as Member of Parliament for Darwen from 1943 to 1951.
