The title Earl of Newburgh (pronounced "New-bruh") was created in the Peerage of Scotland in 1660 for James Livingston, 1st Viscount of Newburgh, along with the subsidiary titles Viscount of Kynnaird and Lord Levingston.
The viscountcy of Newburgh and Livingston baronetcy, which devolved upon the 1st Earl, were created with remainder to heirs male and became extinct on the death of the 2nd Earl (2nd Viscount and 3rd Baronet). However, the Earldom and its subsidiary titles, which were created with remainder to heirs whomsoever, can be inherited through male and female lines, thus passing by marriage through various different families.
The 3rd Countess's second husband was the titular 5th Earl of Derwentwater (a younger brother of the attainted 3rd Earl), and so the 4th and 5th Earls of Newburgh were also titular Earls of Derwentwater, Viscounts Radclyffe and Langley and Barons Tyndale, of Tyndale, Northumberland, in the Jacobite Peerage.
On the death of the 5th Earl (also titular 7th Earl of Derwentwater), the title passed to a descendant of the daughter (and only child) of the 3rd Countess by her first husband, namely the 6th Prince Giustiniani. His daughter, the 7th Countess of Newburgh married the 4th Marquis Bandini and was succeeded, upon her death in 1877, by her son (created Prince Bandini-Giustiniani in 1863) as 8th Duke of Mondragone and 8th Earl of Newburgh. In 1941, upon the death of his son the 9th Earl, the title devolved upon the princely Rospigliosi family.
The 12th and present Earl of Newburgh is usually known in Italy - he lives in Milan - as Prince Rospigliosi, and holds several other titles of nobility: Duke of Zagarolo, Prince Castiglione, Marquis of Giuliana, Count of Chiusa and Baron of La Miraglia and Valcorrente (Two Sicilies and Italy), Lord of Aldone, Burgio, Contessa and Trappeto (Rome), and Patrician of Venice, Genoa, Pistoia, Ferrara and Ravenna (Venice and Genoa).
