The Earldom of Erroll is one of the oldest earldoms in the Peerage of Scotland. The date of creation is circa. 12 June 1452 to him and his heirs male remaining a male fief until the time of Charles II

SOURCE, NOTES, & CREDITS: “The Scots Peerage” Sir James Balfour Paul, Vol. III, 1906, pp 555-587 and Wikipedia article. We are using Appendix A ( pp 156-158 ) “The Union Roll, 1707”found in the book “The Sixteen Peers of Scotland” by Sir James Fergusson of Kilkerran, Bt. which indicates the Earl of Errol is the second senior Earl in the Peerage of Scotland.

Of interest here is the rendition executed in 1906 by Graham Johnston, Heraldic Artist to the Lyon Office. He is considered one of the great heraldic artists of the first half of the twentieth century. The artist’s signature mark and initials may be viewed in the bottom left of the image. This illustration may be found opposite page 555, Vol. III, “The Scots Peerage” by Sir James Balfour Paul, 1906.
