The title Earl of Kincardine was created in 1647 in the Peerage of Scotland for Edward Bruce. The English Civil War between King Charles I and the English Parliament started in 1642. It appears that the title of the Earl of Kincardine was created during the English Civil War, probably by King Charles I.

Charles Bruce, the ninth Earl of Kincardine, inherited the title Earl of Elgin in 1747, and the Earldoms of Elgin and Kincardine have remained united since.
