The Cunynghame Baronetcy, of Milncraig in the County of Ayr, is a title in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It was created on 3 February 1702 for the Scottish lawyer and politician David Cunynghame, with remainder to his "'heirs male in perpetuum'". He was the member of a family that claimed descent from the second son of Alexander Cunningham, 1st Earl of Glencairn. The second and fourth Baronets both represented Linlithgowshire in the British House of Commons while the third Baronet was a Lieutenant-General in the British Army. Another member of the family to gain distinction was Sir Arthur Augustus Thurlow Cunynghame, fifth son of the fifth Baronet. He was a General in the British Army.
