It was created on 29 April 1697 for the Hon. Hew Dalrymple, Lord President of the Court of Session under the judicial title of Lord North Berwick from 1698 to 1737. He was the third son of James Dalrymple, 1st Viscount of Stair, and the brother of John Dalrymple, 1st Earl of Stair, Sir James Dalrymple, 1st Baronet, of Cranstoun, and Sir David Dalrymple, 1st Baronet, of Hailes. The second Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Haddington and Haddingtonshire. The third Baronet represented Haddingtonshire in the House of Commons. The fourth Baronet was Member of Parliament for Haddingtonshire, Ayrshire and Haddington. He assumed the additional surname of Hamilton after that of Dalrymple.
