Sir Nicholas Bacon, 1st Baronet (c. 1540-22 November 1624), of Redgravemarker in Suffolk, was an English Member of Parliament, and in 1611 was the first man to be created a baronet, making his successors Premier Baronets of England.

He was the eldest son of Sir Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, and Jane Fernley, and was half-brother of Sir Francis Bacon. He was admitted to Gray's Innmarker in 1562, and became an "ancient" of the society in 1576. He was knighted in 1578, and was High Sheriff of Suffolk in 1581. He entered Parliament in 1563 as member for Beverley, and subsequently also represented Suffolk from 1572 to 1583.
