It was created on 5 May 1702 for George Suttie. The third and fourth Baronets both sat as Members of Parliament for Haddingtonshire. The latter assumed the additional surname of Grant on succeeding to the estates of his aunt, Janet, Countess of Hyndford, daughter of William Grant, Lord Prestongrange. Francis Grant-Suttie, second son of the fifth Baronet and grandfather of the eighth Baronet, was a Captain in the Royal Navy.

A large number of the family lie buried in the old parish churchyard of North Berwick. The graves lie in three locations: within the church ruins; on the south side of the church; and against the south boundary. All graves are in very poor condition.
