Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Earl of Northesk is a title in the Peerage of Scotland. It was created in 1662 for John Carnegie, who notably served as Sheriff of Forfarshire. He was given the subsidiary title of Lord Rosehill and Eglismauldie at the same time. Carnegie had already been created Earl of Ethie and Lord Lour in 1647 but relinquished those titles in exchange for the 1662 creations. For the purposes of precedence and seniority, the earldom of Northesk is treated as having been created in 1647, the date of the creation of the earldom of Ethie. Lord Northesk's great-grandson, the fourth Earl, sat in the House of Lords as a Scottish Representative Peer from 1708 to 1715. His younger son, the sixth Earl, was an Admiral in the Royal Navy
