John of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon


John of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon

John of Scotland or John de Scotia (c. 1207 – 6 June, 1237), sometimes known as "the Scot", was an Anglo-Scottish magnate, the son of David of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon by his wife Maud, daughter of Hugh de Kevelioc.

John married Elen ferch Llywelyn, daughter of Llywelyn the Great, in about 1222. John became Earl of Huntingdon in 1219 on the death of his father, and later Earl of Chester in 1232 due to his connection to the previous earl, Ranulph de Blondeville, who was his mother's brother.

John died childless on 6 June 1237, aged 30. After his death, the honour of Chester was bought from Ranulph's sisters by Henry III, who gave it to his son Edward. The Earldom of Huntingdon became extinct, but was recreated in 1337 for William de Clinton.
