Francis David Charles Napier, 15th Lord Napier and 6th Lord Ettrick (born 3 November 1962) is a Scottish nobleman, the hereditary chief of the Clan Napier. He is the son of Nigel, 14th Lord Napier and Delia Mary Pearson, daughter of Major Archibald David Barclay Pearson.

Lord Napier was educated at Stanbridge Earls School and at the Otley College of Agriculture and Horticulture.[1]

On the death of his father in 2012 Napier succeeded him as Lord Napier and Ettrick, and Baronet of Nova Scotia. He has not, however, formally proven his succession to the latter title.

In 1993 he married Zara Jane McCalmont, only daughter of Hugh Dermot McCalmont. They have two children:[2]

  • Hon William Alexander Hugh Napier, Master of Napier (born 10 June 1996), heir apparent to the baronies and baronetcy.
  • Hon Sophie Eleanor Rose Napier (born 24 May 1999)
