Another disappointment in terms of the peerage, does anyone know if
the Earl of Kerry has managed a male heir or his cousin who married
recently? At the rate these guys are going the marquisate will become
extinct!

No further recent marriages or births so far as one can see. The
complete line of succession to the marquessate appears to be:

1 The Earl of Kerry (who will celebrate his 39th year of bachelorhood
on 24 November this year)
2 Lord William Petty-FitzMaurice (the proud father of two daughters)
3 Lord Robert Mercer-Nairne (the present peer's brother)
4 Samuel Mercer-Nairne b 1976, unmarried (eld son of 3)
5 Joseph Mercer-Nairne b 1980, married 2006 but no issue so far
(younger son of 3)

Gloomy this one could well go down the extinction route pretty soon,
and it would be a big shame as they have held a peerage in the male
line since 1200 something.

Does anyone know why Major Lord Charles George Francis Mercer Nairne
Petty-FitzMaurice added 'Mercer-Nairne' to his name and why the 8th
marquess's son, Lord Robert dropped the 'Petty-Fitzmaurice'. I note
that the 4th marquess's wife was born Emily Mercer-Elphinstone-de
Flahault (Baroness Nairne) but can't for the life of me understand why
the family name was later dropped. Any thoughts?

I was always curious about that, because the Petty Fitzmaurice is the
older part of the name and Nairne merely represents the lordship of
that name. A family of such antiquity should stick to the older name.
Still at the rate they are going it will be only of academic interest.

It's probably something to do with an inheritance, in the same way as
Lord George Sackville changed his name to Germaine.

Wasn't Sam Mercer-Nairne engaged 1 October 2005 to a Claire Aussudre?
What happened?

Per Debrett's 2008, they wed in 2006. No children to date.
