  The Duke of Buccleuch - Telegraph
The 9th Duke of Buccleuch and 11th Duke of Queensberry, who died yesterday aged 83, was Scotland's grandest aristocrat and the largest private landowner in Europe.
Although one of only 24 non-royal dukes, he was a member of a larger minority group, the disabled, as he had been in a wheelchair since breaking his back in a hunting accident.
Buccleuch, though he had favoured a limited representative selection of peers in the Lords, had doubts about the dukes' collective decision not to seek a place in the Upper House after Tony Blair introduced his constitutional reforms.

 Duke of Buccleuch@Everything2.com
One of his descendants was a Walter Scott of Kirkurd and Buccleuch who rose to prominence during the reign of James II as a result of his assistance in engineering the downfall of the 8th Earl of Douglas in 1452.
The 5th Duke died on the 16th April 1884 at age 77 and was succeeded by his son William Henry who similarly dabbled in poliics having sat in the House of Commons as a Conservative M.P. for Midlothian during his father's lifetime.
The 9th Duke of Buccleuch is therefore the largest private landowner in Britain and probably Europe as well, who was recorded in 1999 as owning 275,000 acres of land, although this is well down on the 460,000 acres the family held in the 1880s.

 The Scotts of Buccleuch
The lands of Buccleuch did not become the property of the family of Scott until at least two centuries subsequent to the time of Kenneth III.; and it was not until the fifteenth century that the designation of Scott of Buccleuch began to be used by the head of the family.
Buccleuch, to whom the Earl of Morton had surrendered, was in his turn obliged to surrender to that Earl, along with several of his associates in the raid, but he was speedily set at liberty.
It was mainly to the Duke of Buccleuch’s influence that Sir Walter Scott was indebted for his appointment to the office of sheriff-depute of Selkirkshire in 1799, and in 1806 to that of one of the principal clerks of the Court of Session.
