The Purves, later Purves-Hume-Campbell, later Home-Purves-Hume-Campbell Baronetcy, of Purves Hall in the County of Berwick, was a title in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It was created on 25 July 1665 for William Purves. The fourth Baronet married Lady Anne, daughter of Alexander Hume-Campbell, 2nd Earl of Marchmont. Their grandson, the sixth Baronet, assumed the additional surnames of Hume and Campbell. The latter's son, the seventh Baronet, assumed the additional surname of Home. He sat as Member of Parliament for Berwickshire. The title became either extinct or dormant on the death of the eighth Baronet in 1960.

Helen Purves-Hume-Campbell, daughter of the seventh Baronet, married Vice-Admiral Sir George Warrender, 7th Baronet, and was the mother of Victor Warrender, 1st Baron Bruntisfield.
