Joseph Russell Bailey, 1st Baron Glanusk (7 April 1840 – 6 January 1906), known as Sir Joseph Russell Bailey, 2nd Baronet, from 1858 to 1899, was a Welsh Conservative Member of Parliament.



Born at Leamington Spa, he was the son of Joseph Bailey, eldest son of the ironmaster Sir Joseph Bailey, 1st Baronet, and his wife, the eldest daughter of William Congreve Russell.[1] He succeeded his grandfather as second Baronet, of Glanusk Park, in 1858.[1]

In 1864 he served as High Sheriff of Brecknockshire. In 1865 he was elected to the British House of Commons for Herefordshire, a seat he held until 1885 when the constituency was abolished, and then represented Hereford between 1886 and 1892. He also served as Lord Lieutenant of Brecknockshire from 1875 to 1905. In 1899 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Glanusk, of Glanusk Park in the County of Brecknock.

Lord Glanusk married Mary Ann, daughter of Henry Lucas, in 1861. He died in January 1906, aged 65, and was succeeded in his titles by his eldest son Joseph Henry Russell Bailey. Lady Glanusk died in 1935.
