Pollock baronets

There have been five baronetcies created for people with the surname Pollock, one in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia and four in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. As of 2017 three of the creations are extant. These three creations derive from the same family to which the 1703 baronetcy was granted; the Pollock ancestor of Sir Frederick Pollock, 1st Baronet and Sir George Pollock, 1st Baronet (both sons of the saddler David Pollock, of Charing Cross) married his cousin, daughter of Sir Robert Pollock, 2nd Baronet.[1]
