Earl of Kincardine

The title Earl of Kincardine was created in 1647 in the Peerage of Scotland for Edward Bruce, grandson of George Bruce of Carnock, who was the elder brother of the 1st Lord Kinloss, him in turn being the father of the 1st Earl of Elgin.

Charles Bruce, the ninth Earl of Kincardine, inherited the title Earl of Elgin in 1747, and the Earldoms of Elgin and Kincardine have remained united since.
