Not to be confused with Elliott baronets or Elliot baronets.

The Eliott Baronetcy, of Stobs in the County of Roxburgh, is a title in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It was created on 3 December 1666 for Gilbert Eliott. The second baronet was a member of the pre-union Parliament of Scotland. The third Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Roxburghshire. The Eliott Baronets share a common early Elliot ancestry with the nearby Earls of Minto (Elliot). It is thought that the surname spelling differences were contrived to differentiate the branches. There is a genealogical book which includes this family – The Elliots: The Story of A Border Clan by The Dowager Lady Eliott of Stobbs and Sir Arthur Eliott, 11th Baronet, published in hardback (ISBN 0-85422-081-X) and later reprinted in soft cover.

George Augustus Eliott, 1st Baron Heathfield was the tenth son of the third Baronet.
