  SIR ALEXANDER ERSKINE OF GOGAR

  B.1521 GOGAR, MIDLOTHIAN, EDINBURGH

 

  The Earls of Kellie were descended from the Honourable

  Sir Alexander Erskine of Gogar, fourth son of Sir John,

  fourth Lord Erskine, and brother of John, Earl of Mar,

  Regent of Scotland, who was born about the year 1521.

 

  The name Erskine derives from the Barony of Erskine in Renfrewshire, where Henry of Erskine had land during the reign of Alexander II. The family were loyal adherants of Robert the Bruce and Sir Robert Erskine of that Ilk was Chamberlain of Scotland at that time. He had two sons; the eldest Thomas   Erskine married Janet Keith, heiress of the Earldom of Mar and their son assumed the title of the Earl of Mar, the younger son, Malcolm Erskine was the ancestor of the House of Kinnoul. Sir Thomas Erskine of Mar was disposed of his title in 1457 and was created Lord Erskine in 1467, but Queen      Mary conferred a new earldom of Mar on the Erskines, hence the 6th Lord became not only 18th but also 1st Earl ofMar. Mary bestowed this earldom in gratitude of her safe custody by the 5th Lord when she was transported as an infant to France. This responsibility continued into the hands of the  Earl of Mar who was appointed guardian and later Regent to James VI, carrying him safely at his coronation in 1567 despite Bothwel l's attempts to replace him with his own heir. After his death in 1372, his wife Annabella remained in charge of the King and was later to succeed to the charge of his  own eldest son. The Regent's son, John Erskine was appointed by James VI as Lord Treasurer of Scotland in 1616 and it was he who built Braemar Castle. From his sons descend the Erskine families that became Earls of Rosslyn and Buchan.
