There were three baronetcies created for members of the Dick family: Space:Scotland - Dick Baronetcies

  • The baronetcy in Prestonfield, Edinburgh was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia for James Dick in 1677.
  • The Dick-Cunyngham baronetcy of Lambrughton, Ayr was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia for John Cunningham in 1669. Merged with the Prestonfield baronetcy in 1829 it became extinct in 1941. From 1683 the family seat was at Caprington, Ayrshire and from 1740 at Prestonfield.
  • The baronetcy of Braid. On 14 March 1768, John Dick, the British consul in Leghorn, was recognised in an Edinburgh court as holder of the Dick baronetcy of Braid. This baronetcy was supposed to have been created for Sir William Dick of Braid (c.1590–1655) who was Provost of Edinburgh in 1638, however the baronetcy was never proved in law. It was recognised by Walford's County Families, Douglas' Baronage, and Dod's and Debrett's Peerages, but not Burke's. In 1873, The Herald and Genealogist found no contemporary evidence that Sir William Dick of Braid had received a baronetcy. Chamberlayne's Present State of Great Britain, upon which John Dick's 1768 claim was founded, described the baronetcy as extinct.
