Lord Of Balvaird
The Lordship and Barony of Balvaird (also spelled as Balverd or Balverde) is a Scottish feudal lordship (a feudal barony of higher degree). The caput of the Lordship and Barony of Balvaird is Balvaird Castle, in the County of Perthshire in Scotland.

The Barony is described in Latin in the crown grant as “terrarum et baronie de Balvaird." In 1673, a Crown Charter of Erection of the Lordship of Balvaird was granted in favour of David, Viscount Stormont. The subjects of the charter are narrated in English as "all and whole various lands incorporated into the Lordship and Barony of Balvaird, together with the tower, fortalice and manor place of Balvaird.” [2] The Barony of Balvaird is one of several Scottish feudal Crown baronies
