EARLS OF ARRAN. The extinct Scottish title of the earls of Arran (not to be confused with the modern Irish calls of Arran—from the Arran or Aran Islands, Galway—a title cleated in 1762) was borne by some famous characters in Scottish history. Except the first earl, Thomas Boyd (see ARRAN), and James Stewart, all the holders of this title were members of the Hamilton family.
