Lot Essay

Charles, 5th Earl of Haddington (c.1650-1685), married in 1674, Lady Margaret Leslie, eldest daughter of John, Duke of Rothes, Lord Chancellor of Scotland. On the death of her father in 1681, his wife became Countess of Rothes. To prevent the junction of the two earldoms, however, it had been agreed at the time of their marriage that the earldom of Rothes should be inherited by the eldest son of the marriage while the second son should succeed to the earldom of Haddington.
