"A memoir of John Elder, engineer and ship-builder," by William John Macquorn Rankine Page 1: "The earliest accounts of the family of ELDER show it to have flourished in the county of Kinross, in the east of Scotland, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The leading branch of the family seems to have been that which possessed the estate of Arlarie, near the town of Milnathort.
