The first possessor, Lady Mary Keith, married Sir James Hope in October, 1657. Of the Keiths, Nisbet tells us that "Anno 1006 at the battle of Panbride, one Robert, a Christian amongst the Chatti (from which came the surname Keith), joined Malcolm II. of Scotland, and was very instrumental in obtaining a notable victory over the Danes. When King Malcolm perceived that Robert had killed the Danish King Camus, he dipt his fingers in the blood of the slain and drew five long pales of blood down Roberts shield, which has ever since been the Armorial Bearing of his descendants - never marshalled with any other." In the year 1010, the chief of the family of Keith was advanced to the dignity of Marshall of Scotland for his eminent valour, and was given a Barony in East Lothian. No male descendant now exists. The last Earl Marischal has been fully described by Andrew Lang in his "Companions of Pickle." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
