The Barran Baronetcy, of Chapel Allerton Hall in Chapel Allerton in the West Riding of the County of York and Queen's Gate, St Mary's Abbot, in Kensington in the County of London, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 11 February 1895 for the merchant and Liberal politician John Barran. He represented Leeds and Otley in the House of Commons. He was succeeded by his grandson, the second Baronet.
