Sir Hugh Paterson, 2nd Baronet (circa 1685 – 23 March 1777) was a Scottish Jacobite and Member of the Parliament of Great Britain. [1]

The son of Sir Hugh Paterson, 1st Baronet by his wife Barbara, daughter of Sir William Ruthven of Dunglass and Katherine, daughter of William Douglas, 1st Marquess of Douglas, he succeeded his father as second Baronet, of Bannockburn, on 21 December 1701. From 1710 to 1715 he was Member of Parliament for Stirlingshire.

On 21 February 1712 he married Lady Jean Erskine, daughter of Charles Erskine, 21st Earl of Mar. They had a son Henry, who predeceased his father, and a daughter.

In 1716 Paterson was attainted and his baronetcy forfeit. His niece Clementina Walkinshaw later became the mistress of Prince Charles Edward Stuart.
