From the Gaelic Aonghus. This is a name which occurs throughout Scotland. As far back as the 5th century it appears in connection with the founding of the colony of the Dalriads. The Earldom of Angus, which is one of the most ancient in Scotland, was granted to one Gilchrist in the 12th century. The 13th century, however, saw the extinction of the Celtic line, and, after forfeiture, the Earldom passed to the Stewarts. In 1389 King Robert II granted the title to George de Douglas and his heirs, whom failing, to Sir Alexander Hamilton. The Earldom is now vested in the Dukedom of Hamilton.
