In his monumental "The Scots Peerage", Sir James Balfour Paul sought to include all ancient titles of nobility, and he therefore investigated the ancient Scottish territorial earldoms in the early days of Scottish history. The old Earldom of Angus, later known as Forfarshire, was one of the ancient divisions of the Pictish world; the ancient Earldom of Caithness first was Celtic and then Norse.

The Earls of Carrick held the northern portion of Galloway, while the Earldom of Fife was one of the seven ancient provinces. The Lords of Galloway ruled over Kirkcudbright, Wigtown, and southern Ayrshire. Lennox was not one of the seven ancient earldoms, but encompassed the region around Loch Lomond. The Earls of Mar held lands around Braemar. The Earls of Menteith ruled an area partly in Perthshire and Stirlingshire; the Lords of Moray included the county of Ross as well as Morayshire in their holdings. The Earls of Ross were not among the seven ancient earldoms, but comprehended the great district of Moray.

The last of these ancient earldoms was Strathearn, which with Monteith constituted the Earldom of Fortrenn.
