a secondary title of the earl of Kellie, derived from the village of
Fenton, East Lothian (see KELLIE, earl of). It is also a surname. In the
Ragman Roll occurs the name of Willielmus de Fenton, as among those barons
of Scotland who swore fealty to Edward I. in 1296. This Sir William de
Fenton, styled dominus de Beaufort, married Cecilia de Bisset, daughter of
one of the barons of Lovat of that name, and appears to have been of the
family of the Fentons of Baky, in the barony of Ard, Inverness-shire,
mentioned under the article Chisholme.
