Brief Clan History

An ancient clan that traces its descent from a knight of Flanders known as Berowald, who was granted lands of Innes, in the parish of Urquhart, in Moray, in the twelfth century by Malcolm IV.

The clan prospered not only through its loyalty to the Stewarts, but through a number of important marriage alliances. Sir Robert Innes, the 20th Chief was made a Baronet in 1625

This Clan was to be found in Moray as early as the 12th century. Malcolm IV granted a charter of the lands of Innes to Berowald in 1160. the name Innes was adopted by his grandson. Robert, the 20th Chief of the Innes Clan, was created a Baronet in 1625.

In 1767 the lands of Innes were sold by Sir James, 6th Baronet, to the Earl of Fife. On the death of the 4th Duke of Roxburgh, Sir James claimed and was granted the Scottish titles of that family. He assumed the name Ker and became the 5th Duke of Roxburgh. James, the 6th Duke, was created Earl Innes.

The Innes clan dates back to 1160 AD. The Inneses grew to be one of the most powerful families in the province of Moray, dominating the parishes of Urquhart, Lhanbryde, and the surrounding district. Innes House, which is still occupied, was built between 1640 and 1653 on the Barony of Innes by Sir Robert Innes, 20th chief of Clan Innes.

Sir James Innes, 22nd chief, married Lady Margaret Ker in 1666, and as a result their great grandson, Sir James Innes, inherited the Dukedom of Roxburghe in 1805 when the Ker family line died out.

Today, Sir Guy David Innes-Ker, 10th Duke of Roxburghe, is the 30th Baron of Innes and the direct descendant of Berowald from Flanders. He resides at Floors Castle near Kelso, Scotland.
