The Skenes take their name from their Aberdeenshire lands which they occupied before the Scottish War of Independence. They got a charter from Robert the Bruce erecting their lands into a barony. Several of their early chiefs were killed in battle, particularly the Battles of Harlaw, Flodden and Pinkie. The direct line expired in 1827, when the estates went to the 4th Earl of Fife, nephew of the last chief of Skene.
