Lord Bellenden

The title Lord Bellenden, of Broughton, was a lordship of Parliament created in the Peerage of Scotland on 10 June 1661 for William Bellenden, who was Treasurer-depute of Scotland. Shortly before his death, he resigned his peerage in favour of his first cousin twice removed, John Ker (later Bellenden). In 1804, the seventh lord inherited the dukedom of Roxburghe from his cousin. On his death in 1805, the dukedom later passed to another cousin and the lordship of Parliament became extinct.
