The Baronetcy of Pollock is a title in the Baronetcies of Nova Scotia created in 1682, for John Maxwell.

The ninth Baronet, born the son of Sir Archibald Stirling, Esq., of Keir and Cawder, and Elizabeth Maxwell, sister of Sir John Maxwell, 8th Baronet, succeeded as heir of entail, in right of his mother and had assumed the additional surname of Maxwell.

In 1956, on the death of the current holder, Sir John Stirling-Maxwell, 10th Baronet, the baronetcy became dormant. His daughter, Dame Anne Maxwell Macdonald (1906–2011) was recognised by Lyon Court in 2005 as 11th holder of the baronetcy and therefore succeeded her father in 1956. The title is extant (2016).

The seat of the title is at Pollock, Renfrewshire.
