This name comes from the old barony of Carnegie in the parish of Carmyllie, Angus. The original name of the Carnegies of Southesk was de Ballinhard, but on acquiring the lands of Carnegie about 1340, they adopted the new surname. Sir David Carnegie was created Earl of Southesk by Charles I, whose cause he espoused. The 5th Earl, present at the raising ofthe Standard on the Braes of Mara in 1715, forfeited his estates; he was the hero of the songThe Pied Piper oa Dundeea. Later, the family was able to buy back the estates. One of the best-known men of the name is Andrew Carnegie, 1837-1919, the Amercio-Scottish multi-millionaire.
