Erskine—Erskine is the name of the Earls of Mar, Aberdeen. Domhnull, High Stewart of Mar, son of Eimhin, and Chief of the Eoghanacht Clans of Mar in Aberdeen, was descended from Leamha Maine, the ancestor of the O'Moriartys and other septs of West Munster. He and the High Stewart of Leamhna (Lennox), now partly in Stirling county, descendants of Corc, king of Munster, with several other chiefs of the Albanian Scots, came to the assistance of Brian Boru, at the Battle of Clontarf, in 1014, in which engagement they fell.
