    In 1351 Sir James Douglas had the grant of the Barony of Aberdour, co. Fife, from his uncle William, sometime Earl of Atholl, to whose barony of Dalkeith he succeeded before 1369. His great grandson James, often regarded as Lord Dalkeith, on 14 Mar 1457/8 was created Earl of Morton. William, the 6th Earl had, 16 Mar 1638, a very comprehensive charter of the lands, Earldom, and Barony of Morton, with all his other lands, and "Aberdour was at the same time erected into a burgh of Barony and the title was altered to Earl of Morton and Lord Aberdour." Since that time the title of Lord Aberdour has been used as the courtesy title belonging to the eldest son of the Earl of Morton. [Complete Peerage I:19]
