Sir James Grant, 1st Baronet (died 1695) was a Scottish lawyer of the seventeenth century.

Appointed King's Advocate, he was created a baronet, "of Dalvey, Elgin", in the baronetage of Nova Scotia on 10 August 1688, with remainder "to his heirs whatsoever". He died in 1695 and was succeeded in his title and estates by a kinsman, Patrick Grant of Inverladinen.[1]

Lodge's Genealogy of the Existing British Peerage and Baronetage states that this family of Grant is "a branch of the ancient family of Grant, of Grant".[1]
