Note: This was a feudal not a peerage title:
"a feudal title is a territorial dignity which passes with the ownership of the lands to which it is attached; a peerage title is a personal dignity which will pass, if it is not a life peerage, according to the "remainder" or "destination" specified at the time of its creation."
"The Gaelic name for the Chief of the Frasers of Lovat, MacShimi (written sometimes as Mac Simi and sometimes as MacShimidh) means son of Simon, and this Simon is believed to be the Simon Fraser of Brotherton who married the eventual heiress of the Lovat lands previously held by Sir David Grahame of Lovat and, earlier, by the Byssets. The Beaufort lands of the Byssets were reunited with the Lovat lands when their eventual heiress, Janet de Fenton, married into the Frasers in 1425."
