Earl of Moray

The title Earl of Moray (pronounced “Murry”) has been created several times in the Peerage of Scotland. Prior to the formal establishment of the peerage, numerous individuals ruled over Moray with the title of mormaer or earl.

It was first bestowed in modern times on Thomas Randolph. It eventually descended to Elizabeth Stewart, 7th Countess of Moray, whose husband was also recognised as Earl. However, when her husband, James, was killed in battle against the Sovereign in 1455, his title was attained. for more click here
