The British Peerage in 1818: Peerages 61-138: Earldoms in the Peerages of England, Scotland and Ireland

By Stephen Millar 

The title of earl ranks third-highest in the British peerage, preceeding the titles of viscount and baron. In 1818, there was a grand total of 210 earldoms, of which 25 earldoms were in the peerage of England, 41 earldoms in the peerage of Scotland and 12 earldoms in the peerage of Ireland (a total of 78).[1]

Twelve earldoms in these three peerages became dormant or extinct during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Eras: Annandale and Hartfell (1792), Marchmont (1794), Glencairn (1796), Mountrath (1802), Delorain (1807), Crawford and Lindsay (both 1808), Berkeley (1810), Peterborough and Monmouth (both 1810), Findlater (1811) and Newburgh (1814).

Re-created by King Charles II on 23.04.1662 in the peerage of Scotland, the earldom of Annandale and Hartfell became dormant on 29.04.1792, with the death of George van den Bempde-Johnstone, 3rd Marquess of Annandale and 4th Earl of Annandale and Hartfell.[2]

The earldom of Marchmont was created by King William III on 23.05.1697 in the peerage of Scotland. The peerage became dormant in 1794 with the death of Hugh Hume-Campbell, 3rd Earl of Marchmont (15.02.1708-10.01.1794).

King James III created the the earldom of Glencairn on 28.05.1488 in the peerage of Scotland. The title became dormant in 1796 with the death of John Cunningham, 14th Earl of Glencairn (17.05.1750-24.09.1796).

Created by King Charles II on 06.09.1660 in the peerage of Ireland, the earldom of Mountrath became extinct on 01.03.1802 with the death of Charles Henry Coote, 7th Earl of Mountrath (1725-01.03.1802).

The earldom of Deloraine was created by Queen Anne on 29.03.1706 in the peerage of Scotland. The title became extinct with the death of Henry Scott, 4th Earl of Deloraine (08.02.1737-10.09.1807).

The earldom of Crawford was created by King Robert III on 21.04.1398 in the peerage of Scotland. The title became dormant in 1808 with the death of Major-General George Lindsay-Crawford, the 22nd Earl of Crawford and 6th Earl of Lindsay (31.01.1758-30.01.1808).[3]

Created by King Charles II on 11.09.1679 in the peerage of England, the earldom of Berkeley became dormant on 08.08.1810 with the death of Frederick Augustus Berkeley, 5th Earl of Berkeley. The dormancy 每 which lasted 81 years 每 occurred when the date of the 5th Earl*s marriage could not be verified, making it unclear which one of his six sons was heir to the earldom. The dispute was resolved on 31.07.1891, when the 5th Earl*s marriage was legally recognized as haven taken place on 16.05.1796 每 thus making his fifth son, Thomas Moreton Fitzhardinge Berkeley (19.10.1796-27.08.1882) the 6th Earl.

Created by King Charles I on 20.02.1638 in the peerage of Scotland, the earldom of Findlater became extinct in 1811 with the death of James Ogilvy, 7th Earl of Findlater and 4th Earl of Seafield (10.04.1750-05.10.1811).

The earldom of Peterborough (created by King Charles I in the peerage of England on 09.03.1628) and the earldom of Monmouth (created by King William III in the peerage of England on 09.04.1689) both became extinct in 1814 with the death of Charles Henry Mordaunt, 5th Earl of Peterborough and 3rd Earl of Monmouth (16.05.1758-16.06.1814).

The earldom of Newburgh was created on 31.12.1660 by King Charles II in the peerage of Scotland. It became dormant in 1814 with the death of Anthony James Radclyffe, 5th Earl of Newburgh (20.01.1757-29.11.1814). The title was created &with remainder to heirs whatsoever*; after it was revived, the earldom subsequently passed into the Italian princely families of Giustiniani and Rospigliosi.

There were nine &double*earldoms in the peerages of England, Scotland and Ireland: Shrewsbury and Waterford; Pembroke and Montgomery; Suffolk and Berkshire; Denbigh and Desmond; Winchilsea and Nottingham; Stamford and Warrington; Elgin and Kincardine; Leven and Melville; Cork and Orrery.

Of the 41 earldoms in the peerage of Scotland, four were held by women: Sutherland, Rothes, Loudoun and Orkney.
