Home Baronets

There have been six Baronetcies created for persons with the surname Home, five in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Only one creation is extant as of 2008.

The Home Baronetcy, of Wedderburn in the County of Berwick, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia in circa 1638 for David Home. On the death of the second Baronet in circa 1716 the heir was under attainder and the baronetcy consequently forfeited.

The Home Baronetcy, of North Berwick, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia in circa 1638 for George Home. On the death of the fourth Baronet in 1747 the title became either extinct or dormant.

The Home Baronetcy, of Blackadder in the County of Berwick, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 25 January 1671 for John Home, with remainder to the heirs male of his body. He was a descendant of John Home, fourth son of Sir David Home of Wedderburn, who was killed at the Battle of Flodden in 1513. Sir David's sons who were present at the battle were known as the "Seven Spears of Wedderburn". Sir David Home was a descendant of Sir David Home (15th century), younger son of Sir Thomas Home of that Ilk, who is also the ancestor of the Earls of Home. The seventh Baronet was a Vice-Admiral of the Blue. The tenth Baronet assumed in 1878 the additional surname of Speirs. However, none of his successors have borne this surname. The thirteenth Baronet was a claimant to the dormant earldom of Dunbar. The family surname is pronounced "Home".

The Home Baronetcy, of Renton in the County of Berwick, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia sometime between 1672 and 1678 for Alexander Home. He was the son of John Home, Lord Renton, by his second wife Margaret (née Stewart), and the half-brother of the first Baronet of Lumdane (see below). The title became either extinct or dormant on the death of the fourth Baronet in 1738.

The Home Baronetcy, of Lumdane in the County of Berwick, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 31 December 1697 for Patrick Home. He was the son of John Home, Lord Renton, by his first wife Janet (née Home), and the half-brother of the first Baronet of Renton (see above). The title became extinct on the death of the third Baronet in 1783.

The Home Baronetcy, of Well Manor in the County of Southampton, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 2 January 1813 for the physician Everard Home. The title became extinct on the death of the second Baronet in 1853.
