The Richards Baronetcy, of Brambletye House in the County of Suffolk, was a title in the Baronetage of England. It was created on 22 February 1684 for Sir James Richards. The second Baronet was a colonel in the Spanish Army and a merchant in Cadiz, Spain. The fourth Baronet was also an officer in the Spanish army. Nothing further is known of him or his possible descendants. The title became either extinct or dormant on his death some time after 1741.
