Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 2: Buchan (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)


Volume 2, page 376:
On the establishment of peace with England, his [Henry Beaumont's (d. 1339/40)] claims to the Scottish honours were reserved, but they never took effect in Scotland, though in England he was sum. to Parl. [E.] as EARL OF BOGHAN (i.e. BUCHAN) from 22 Jan. 1333/4 to 16 Nov. 1339. In Sep. 1333 he is described, in a Papal letter, as Henry Beaumont, earl of Buchan.

For examples of his being styled Earl of Buchan and Moray, in 1333 and 1334, see under Moray.
