In the attempt to surprise Prince Charles Edward at Moy in February 1746, he was thrown down by the cavalry in their flight, and much hurt. He declared that he had been in many perils, but never found himself in such a grievous condition as on that day.

The fifth barouet of the Lockhart family, Admiral Sir John Lockhart, assumed the name of Ross, (see vol. ii. p. 685, ) and the estate of Carstairs being sold in 1762, he adopted the designation of Ralnagowan, by which the family is now known. The admiral s eldest son, Lieutenant-general Sir Charles Ross, sixth baronet, married, first, Matilda 1 heresn, a countem of the Holy Roman empire, the daughter and heiress of General Count James Lockhart of Carnwsth, and by her had a son, who died in childhood, and a daughter, Matilda.

Item Description: Heritage Books, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 279 x 216 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author had already spent ten years compiling the information that went into this history when the first volume was published. Upon its completion he declared the work to be, and his contemporaries agreed, the most complete of its kind ever assembled. The rich Scottish heritage can be successfully traced thanks to the practice of bestowing hereditary surnames, many of which found a permanent record in the many charters and other public deeds which still exist today. One of the objects of this series is to not only explain the origin of these surnames but to deliver an account of the families as well as the distinguished individuals within the families that bore them. The baronies of Scotland, associated with hereditary jurisdiction, were viewed as just short of regal and as such, an account of these honors provides an account of the territorial supremacy of a name and a family. A necessary supplement to the history of families is the history of titles which are key to understanding the social and political incidents that shaped the country. Above all other aspects perhaps the greatest light can be shed upon the Scottish nation when one studies the biographies of its most distinguished natives. This series embraces a wide range of people, comprising some names not met with in history but whose skill, labor, and genius have added to the greatness of their nation. Arranged alphabetically, there is a complete account of the surnames, titles, baronies, and general biographies of Scotland. The Scottish Nation is also richly decorated with autographs, seals, genealogical and titular tables as well as an abundance of illustrations and portraits, all taken from original or authentic sources. The author also pays particular attention to the literary accomplishments in Scottish history, creating, as he says, a Bibliotheca Scottica. This series is truly a valuable collection of the antiquities, the literature, and the general and family histories of Scotland. Volume A: In the first volume comprising the A s you will find interesting, well written, and comprehensive accounts of, among many others, Dr. Arthur Abercrombie, celebrated physician of Edinburgh, along with his likeness; Sir Ralph Abercrombie, the hero of Aboukir, accompanied by an illustration of him astride his horse; the eccentric Dr. Abernathy; Dr. Adair of Bath; Dr. Adam, the great scholar, author of Roman Antiquities, and his portrait; the four Dukes of Albany who figure so prominently in the history of early Scotland, with all their portraits; and the Kings of Scotland, Alexander I, II, and III. There are over forty surnames in this volume alone. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780788402456

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1862 Excerpt: .to set all academical authority at open defiance. Cunningham, who had assaulted J. Melville with a drawn sword, was finally reduced to tho necessity of making a public and humiliating apology, with his feet as well as his head uncovered. John Maxwell, a son of Lord Herrics, had likewise been implicated in some very disorderly proceedings; but when his father was informed of his conduct, he hastened to Glasgow, and compelled him on his knees, and in an open area of the college, to beg the principal s pardon. We know not what was Boyd s punishment, but, impetuous and headstrong, it is not likely that he would submit to ask forgiveness. We are told that he was of so untraceable a spirit that he quarrelled with his preceptors, beat them both, threw his books into the fire, and forswore learning for ever! While yet a mere youth, he presented himself at court, in hopes of obtaining advancement there, but the violence of his temper involved him in numberless quarrels, and after fighting a duel, his friends persuaded him to go abroad, and follow the profession of arms. He accordingly proceeded in 1581 to Paris, where he lost all his money in gaming, which seems to have roused him at last to reflection. He now applied himself to his studies with all his characteristic ardour; attending the lectures of several professors in the university of Paris. After some time he went to the university of Orleans to learn the civil law, under J. Robertus, chiefly known for his temerity in becoming the rival of the celebrated Cujacius. Boyd soon quitted Orleans for Bourges, where Cujacius, the principal civilian of the age, delivered his lectures. To this professor he recommended himself by writing some verses in the antiquated Latin language, Cujacius having a preference fo. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781231308653

Item Description: Heritage Books, United States, 2014. Book. Book Condition: New. 280 x 216 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author had already spent ten years compiling the information that went into this history when the first volume was published. Upon its completion he declared the work to be, and his contemporaries agreed, the most complete of its kind ever assembled. The rich Scottish heritage can be successfully traced thanks to the practice of bestowing hereditary surnames, many of which found a permanent record in the many charters and other public deeds which still exist today. One of the objects of this series is to not only explain the origin of these surnames but to deliver an account of the families as well as the distinguished individuals within the families that bore them. The baronies of Scotland, associated with hereditary jurisdiction, were viewed as just short of regal and as such, an account of these honors provides an account of the territorial supremacy of a name and a family. A necessary supplement to the history of families is the history of titles which are key to understanding the social and political incidents that shaped the country. Above all other aspects perhaps the greatest light can be shed upon the Scottish nation when one studies the biographies of its most distinguished natives. This series embraces a wide range of people, comprising some names not met with in history but whose skill, labor, and genius have added to the greatness of their nation. Arranged alphabetically, there is a complete account of the surnames, titles, baronies, and general biographies of Scotland. The Scottish Nation is also richly decorated with autographs, seals, genealogical and titular tables as well as an abundance of illustrations and portraits, all taken from original or authentic sources. The author also pays particular attention to the literary accomplishments in Scottish history, creating, as he says, a Bibliotheca Scottica. This series is truly a valuable collection of the antiquities, the literature, and the general and family histories of Scotland. Volume D-F: In this volume comprising the letters D, E, and F you will find interesting, well written, and comprehensive accounts of, among many others, James Dalrymple, first Viscount Stair, who was an eminent lawyer and statesman; David the First, King of Scots, a monarch who, by his admirable capacity for government, and skill in availing himself of opportunities of aggrandizing his kingdom, may be truly said to be the founder of the monarchy on its modern basis; Jane Elliot, author of one of the three lyrics of the song The Flowers of the Forest. It is said she composed it in a carriage with her brother, after a conversation about the Battle of Flodden, and a bet that she could not make a ballad on the subject. Also within the E s you will find the surname Erskine, fabled to have originated when a Scotsman, during a battle, cut off the head of a Danish chief and with the head and dagger in his hands exclaimed to his king, Malcolm the Second, in Gaelic, Eris Skene, alluding to the head and dagger. Malcolm then gave him the name of Erskine. Over sixty-five surnames are covered in this volume. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780788403101
