The Pretyman Baronetcy, of Lodington, was a title in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia. It was created in circa 1660 for John Pretyman, later Member of Parliament for Leicester. The title became dormant on the death of the fourth Baronet in circa 1749. In 1823, George Pretyman Tomline, the Bishop of Winchester, successfully claimed the Baronetcy but his sons refused their claims to succession and it became again dormant.
