Duke of Roxburghe

The Duke of Roxburghe is a title in the peerage of Scotland created in 1707 along with the titles Viscount Broxmouth, Marquess of Bowmont and Cessford and Earl of Kelso. John Ker, 5th Earl of Roxburghe became the first holder of these titles.

The Duke has the subsidiary titles of: Marquess of Bowmont and Cessford (created 1707), Earl of Roxburghe (1616), Earl of Kelso (1707), Earl Ker (1722), Earl Innes (1837), Viscount Broxmouth (1707), Lord Roxburghe (1600), Lord Ker of Cessford and Cavertoun (1616) and Baron Ker of Wakefield (1722).

The Duke's eldest son bears the courtesy title of Marquess of Bowmont and Cessford.

The family has its seat at Floors Castle in Kelso, Scotland.
