 The Earldom of Menteith
The earldom of Menteith, which takes its name from the district, is one of the most ancient of the Scottish titles of nobility, and dates from the beginning of the twelfth century, while the oldest English earldom—that of Huntingdon—is three hundred years, and the oldest barony—De Ros—is a hundred and fifty years, later.
This famous earldom has been borne successively by three of the most distinguished families of Scotland—the Red Comyns, the royal Stewarts, and the gallant Grahams—and is associated with a great part of the most important and interesting events in the history of the country.
He was one of the nobles who escorted the young Queen Mary to France in 1550, and was probably selected to be one of her guardians during the voyage in consequence of her having had a temporary refuge in one of the islands on the Lake of Menteith in the immediate vicinity of his residence.

A ''Markgraf'', or ''Margrave'', originally functioned as the military governor of a Carolingian ''"Mark"'' (or MarchesMarch), a medieval/ border province.
Most Marks and, consequently, Margraves had their base on the Eastern border of the Carolingian and later, Holy Roman Empire.
In Central Europe the most important provinces (so-called) became the ''"Mark Brandenburg"'' and the original territory of Austria (located mostly in modern Lower Austria), which in Latin had the name ''Marchia Orientalis'', the "eastern borderland".

 A Mark Twain Biography. Complete by Albert Bigelow Paine eBook by BookRags
It was two years later that he met Jane Lampton; whose mother was a Casey —­a Montgomery-Casey whose father was of the Lamptons (Lambtons) of Durham, England, and who on her own account was reputed to be the handsomest girl and the wittiest, as well as the best dancer, in all Kentucky.
As for the Lamptons, there is an earldom in the English family, and there were claimants even then in the American branch.
All these things were worth while in Kentucky, but it was rare Jane Lampton herself—­gay, buoyant, celebrated for her beauty and her grace; able to dance all night, and all day too, for that matter—­that won the heart of John Marshall Clemens, swept him off his feet almost at the moment of their meeting.

William Sinclair, the last of the Orkney earls, excambed the landed estates of the earldom for subjects on the mainland, and the former were, on 17th February 1471, annexed to the Crown with a condition against alienation, 'except alenarily to ane of ye kingis sonis of lauchfull bed'.

 Mark Twain: A Biography, by Albert Bigelow Paine
The reader may be assured, where discrepancies occur, that the writer of this memoir has obtained his data from direct and positive sources: letters, diaries, accountbooks, or other immediate memoranda; also from the concurring testimony of eye-witnesses, supported by a unity of circumstance and conditions, and not from hearsay or vagrant printed items.
In The Gilded Age we have Mark Twain’s picture of Squire Hawkins and Obedstown, written from descriptions supplied in later years by his mother and his brother Orion; and, while not exact in detail, it is not regarded as an exaggerated presentation of east Tennessee conditions at that time.
Perhaps it is not adding to Mark Twain’s reputation to say that the boy Sam Clemens—a pretty small boy, a good deal less than twelve at this time—was the leader of this unhallowed band; yet any other record would be less than historic.
