Flora Marjory Fraser, 21st Lady Saltoun1, Chief of the Name and the Arms of Fraser (born 18 October 1930) is currently the only female holder of a lordship of Parliament who has a seat in the House of Lordsmarker as an elected hereditary peer. She is the head of the Frasers of Philorth.

Life

Flora Fraser was born in Edinburghmarker, Scotlandmarker. She was the daughter of Alexander Fraser and Dorothy Geraldine Welby. Her maternal grandfather was Charles Glynne Earle Welby. She had an elder brother, Alexander Simon Fraser. In 1933, her father became the 20th Lord Saltoun. Her brother was killed in 1944, making Flora the heir presumptive to the Lordship.

In 1979, when Lord Saltoun died, Flora became the 21st Lady Saltoun, and also gained a seat in the House of Lordsmarker. In 1999, because of the House of Lords Act 1999, 662 hereditary peers were removed from the House. However, Lady Saltoun was one of the ninety hereditary peers who were elected to remain in the House.

On 6 October, 1956 at Fraserburghmarker, Aberdeenshiremarker, she married Alexander Ramsay, a grandson of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, keeping her maiden surname after marriage. The Queen considers Lady Saltoun to be a member of the Royal family. Lady Saltoun's children are:

Notes

  1. It has recently been determined that Margaret Abernethy succeeded her brother, Alexander Abernethy, 9th Lord Saltoun in 1668, but only survived him by about 6 weeks and had not been counted in the title's numbering. This new information has resulted in the ordinals in subsequent Saltoun Lords being revised. As a result, Flora Fraser is sometimes listed as the 20th Lady Saltoun.
  2. Katherine is the heiress presumptive to her mother's peerage and the leadership of the Clan Fraser. Lord Lyon King Arms officially recognized her use of the surname Fraser in 1973. Her son was also given this surname. Katherine holds the title "Mistress of Saltoun" as the heiress to her mother's peerage.
