The Scottish Nation

FENTON, 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.
