The Kirkpatrick Baronetcy, of Closeburn in the County of Dumfries, is a title in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It was created on 26 March 1685 for Thomas Kirkpatrick, with remainder to heirs male whatsoever. The family seat of the Kirkpatrick family was Closeburn Castle, Dumfriesshire.

Eugénie, Empress of the French, wife of Emperor Napoleon III, was the great-granddaughter of William Kirkpatrick, of Conheath, a descendant of Alexander Kirkpatrick, of Kirkmichael, younger brother of Sir Thomas Kirkpatrick (d. 1502), ancestor of the first Kirkpatrick Baronet. Three other members of the family may also be mentioned. Sir Roger Kirkpatrick was a third cousin of Robert the Bruce. Charles Kirkpatrick (1879–1955), grandson of Roger Kirkpatrick, second son of fourth Baronet, was a Major-General in the British Army. His son Herbert James Kirkpatrick (1910–1977) was an Air Vice-Marshal in the Royal Air Force.
