There have been four baronetcies created for persons with the surname Innes, three in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Three of the creations are extant as of 2010.

The Innes, later Innes-Ker Baronetcy, of Innes in the County of Elgin, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 28 May 1625 for Robert Innes and is the Premier Baronetcy of the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. The sixth Baronet succeeded as Duke of Roxburgh in 1812. For further history of the baronetcy, see that title.

The Innes Baronetcy, of Balvenie in the County of Banff, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 15 January 1628 for Robert Innes, with remainder to heirs male whatsoever. The line of the first Baronet failed on the death of the eighth Baronet in 1817. The late Baronet was succeeded by his distant relative, the ninth Baronet, heir male of John Innes, great-great-uncle of the first Baronet. The twelfth Baronet served as Vice-Lord-Lieutenant of Banffshire. Victoria Cross recipient Lieutenant-General James John McLeod Innes was also a member of this family. The family surname is pronounced "Innez".

The Innes Baronetcy, of Coxton in the County of Moray, was created in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia on 20 March 1686 for Alexander Innes, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Moray, with remainder to heirs male whatsoever. He was a descendant of John Innes of Coxton, grandson of Patrick Innes, great-great-great-uncle of the first Baronet of Balvenie (see above). The line of the first Baronet failed on the death of his great-grandson, the sixth Baronet, in 1803. The seventh Baronet was the great-grandson of John Innes, younger brother of the first Baronet. This line of the family failed on the death of the eighth Baronet in 1886. The claim passed to Charles Innes, de jure ninth Baronet, a descendant of John Innes, great-uncle of the first Baronet. The eleventh Baronet proved his succession in 1973 and was placed on the Official Roll of the Baronetage.

The Innes Baronetcy, of Lochalsh in the County of Ross, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 28 April 1819 for Hugh Innes, Member of Parliament for Tain Burghs. He never married and the title became extinct on his death in 1831.
