The Mercer clan is a renowned and historic name in Scotland, England, and Ireland, tracing its roots back to the 14th century. Originally associated with merchants who traded in luxurious fabrics, such as silk, and cotton, the name has been adapted across different countries, with variations including "le Mercier" in French, "Mercator" in Latin, and "Mercatori" in Italian. In Scotland, Ireland, and England, the name can also be spelled as "Le Mercer" or "Marcer." This clan has two distinguished families in Scotland: the Mercers of Innerpeffry in Strathern and the Aldie family in Perthshire District. The Aldie family was founded by John, a wealthy merchant burgess of Perth who served as provost and was also a frequent ambassador to England, France, and Holland. Sir Andrew, a Scottish admiral, successfully attacked the English fleet at Scarborough. This name also has a notable presence in London, with Serle, a wealthy merchant who served as Mayor of London in the early 13th century. In the 17th century, Lieutenant-Colonel William authored "Angliae Speculum," or England's Looking-glass. Military figures associated with this clan include Captain Bernard of the Royal Marines, who married the heiress of the Slaughters, as well as Marcus Hill and Trevor, who served in the Army and Royal Navy, respectively. There is also a branch of this family in Kent. This clan's history is long and illustrious, with members who have left their mark in various fields throughout the centuries.
