A good starting point for research in baronetcies is a book entitled "Index
of Baronetage Creations", compiled by C. J. Parry and published in 1967 by
the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, Northgate, Canterbury,
Kent. For each baronetcy, it lists when the baronetcy was created and (if
appropriate) when it became extinct or dormant and if it was merged with a
superior title. More important, it lists the latest date at which the
baronetcy appeared in one of the standard peerage publications (including
Burke's, GEC, and other older ones).
For your title of Payne-Gallwey, it indicates the title last appeared in the
Burke's Peerage of 1949, under Frankland-Payne-Gallwey (alphabetized under
Gallwey). When read in conjunction with the Franklin baronetcy also in that
BP, it yields somewhat different information than you've posted.
As several of the "subject policeman" in the group have pointed out, this is
(slightly) OT for Gen-Medieval and SGM, but at least it's closer to the
proper topic than most of the other crap that's been circulating
