Dunbar Baronets

Dunbar Baronets

There have been five Dunbar Baronetcies; the first four in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia, and the last in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. There is also a Hope-Dunbar Baronetcy of Baldoon.

The Dunbar Baronets of Mockrum are notable as the 11th Baronet only held that title for two days before his death. The Dunbar Baronets of Hempriggs are notable as the 8th Baronetess was one of only four (or possibly five) baronetesses in history.
