Charlotte de La Tremouille

According to a rather puritanical Parliamentarian, three women ruined the kingdom: Eve, for having brought sin into the world, the Catholic Queen Henrietta Maria, and Charlotte, the Countess of Derby, also a Catholic. There were also sneers at her husband, for it was said that of the two that she had proven herself the better soldier or, put more crudely, that she had stolen 'the Earl's breeches'.

Granddaughter of William The Silent, Prince of Orange, Charlotte married the Earl of Derby, who was related to the English royal family, and found her a queen by his side in Lathom House, a massive and ancient fortress, considered 'the only Court' in the north. In 1643, with the Earl on the Isle of Man, the Countess was at Lathom House with two of her children, when it was besieged by Sir Thomas Fairfax, the Parliamentary General who wanted to have a bloodless surrender. 

After several summonses were delivered, the general attacked; Lady Derby's defence lasted three months till she was rescued by Prince Rupert. However, in 1645, with the Countess absent, her staff surrendered Lathom House to the Parliamentary forces. 

James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby, (1607-1651)
 

Born in Knowsley, County Lancaster, he was M.P. for Liverpool in 1625. On 26 June 1626 he married Charlotte de La Tremouille and they became the parents of six children. In 1642 he was one of the first to join the King at York and, being that year Lord Lieutenant of North Wales as well as of Cheshire and Lancashire, he had intended to set up the Royal Standard in those parts. He subsequently moved to the Isle of Man to secure that place while his wife sustained the celebrated siege of Lathom House. He was nominated Knight of The Garter but never installed. He fought on the Royalist side throughout the Civil War. After the Battle of Worcester in 1651, he helped Charles II to make his escape but was himself captured by the Parliamentary forces and beheaded at Bolton. 

William Wentworth, 2nd Earl of Strafford, (1626-1695)

On 8 June 1626 he was born at Wentworth Woodhouse and, on 28 June 1635, knighted in Ireland by his father. On 12 January 1638 he was admitted at Trinity College, Dublin. In 1640 and 1641 he was styled Lord Raby as his father had become Earl of Strafford. Then, on 12 May 1641 his father was executed on Tower Hill and had his titles forfeited. However, as William Wentworth, Knight, on 1 December 1641, he had all his father's titles restored to him. He matriculated at Oxford on 21 March 1642 and, being only sixteen years of age, was given a pass at the beginning of the Civil War to go abroad where he remained for nine years. However, in his absence on 22 May 1644 he was assessed at � 3,000 and his estates were sequestered by Parliament from 1645 until, in 1652, he returned to England and took the oath of abjuration. On 27 February 1655 he married Lady Henrietta Mary Stanley, daughter of the Earl of Derby, but the marriage was childless. Before the Restauration, he took his seat in Parliament on 27 April 1660. On 15 April 1661 he was invested as a Knight of The Garter. On 19 May 1662, by Act of Parliament, the attainder of his father was reversed and his titles were now regarded as properly inherited and reverting to the original dates of creation for his father. In 1685 he lost his wife. In 1688 he supported William III against James II. In 1694 he married Henrietta de La Rochefoucauld de Roye, a cousin of his first wife, but this marriage was also childless as, shortly afterwards on 16 October 1695, he died and all the peerage honours conferred on him and his father became extinct. 

Charles Stanley, 8th Earl of Derby, (1628-1672)

He was styled Lord Strange until in 1651 he became the 8th Earl of Derby. In 1650 he married Dorothea Helena van den Kerckhove, who had been a Maid of Honour to the Queen of Bohemia. In August 1659 he joined Booth's rising on behalf of the king. From 1660 until 1672 he was Lord Lieutenant of the counties Lancaster and Chester. Also in 1660 he became, with his son, joint Chamberlain of Chester. At the coronation of King Charles II, on 23 April 1661, he was bearer of the third sword. From 1671 until his death he was also Vice-Admiral of the counties Lancaster and Chester. Aged forty-five, he died "of a dropsie" on 21 December 1672 and was buried at Ormskirk. 

Lady Henriette Mary Stanley, (1630-1685)

At the age of twenty-four she married William Wentworth, Earl of Strafford, but their marriage remained childless. At the age of fifty-five she died of a spotted fever in London and was buried on 13 January 1686 in York Minster. There were extraordinary scenes at her funeral where the mob attacked the guard, tearing down the escutcheons round the choir and over the vault during the service. 

John Murray, 1st Marquese of Atholl, (1631-1703)

He joined the king's Standard with 2,000 men in 1653, and was excepted from Cromwell's act of indemnity in 1654. At the Restoration in 1660 he was made Privy Councillor, Hereditary Sheriff of Fife; and Justice General 1663 to 1676. In January 1670 he succeeded his cousin, James Murray, Earl of Tullibardine, and Lord Murray of Gask in those titles. He was appointed Captain General of the Royal Company of Archers from 1670 till death; Colonel of the 4th troop of Horse Guards 1671-1678; Keeper of the Privy Seal 1672-1689; Lord of Session on 14 January 1673 till 1689. To counterbalance the Campbells and as recognition of his great influence in The Highlands, Charles II on 17 February 1676 created him Marquess of Atholl. He was instrumental in opposing Argyll's invasion in 1685. James II made him Lord-Lieutenant of Argyllshire; his followers seized Inverary Castle and ravaged Campbell lands. Having captured Charles Campbell, Argyll's son, he intended to hang him at his father's gate at Inverary Castle and was only prevented from this barbarous act by the intervention of the Privy Council. He was created Knight of The Thistle, 29 May 1687, being one of the original knights on the revival of that order by King James II. In the "Glorious Revolution" shortly afterwards, he played a trimming and shuffling part. He attempted to gain favour with William of Orange but was repulsed. He therfore half-hartedly supported James II, ousted by William in 1689. Later that year the Highland clans, favouring James because they hated the Campbells, overwhelmed William's troops at Killiecrankie but then dispersed so that James's cause was lost. The Marquess, described by Macaulay as "the falsest, the most fickle, the most pusillanimous of mankind", had meanwhile slipped away to Bath to drink the waters. He died 6 May 1703 and is buried at Dunkeld. 

William Richard George Stanley, 9th Earl of Derby, (1656-1702)

He was styled Lord Strange until in 1672 he became the 9th Earl of Derby. On 10 July 1673 he married his cousin, Lady Elizabeth Butler, and they became the parents of three children. After his marriage he was sent to Paris to complete his education but behaved very badly, becoming debauched. In May 1679 his father-in-law described him as "very nasty, ill-natured and obstinate," and later in the same year talks of "his brutality and ill-usage of my daughter." From 1673 onwards he was Vice Admiral of the counties Lancaster and Chester. At the coronation of King James II, on 23 April 1685, he was the bearer of the second sword. While at the funeral of Queen Mary II, 5 March 1695, he was one of the pall bearers. From June 1672 until his death he was also Lord Lieutenant of North Wales. He died aged forty-seven, on 5 November 1702, and was buried at Ormskirk. As he had no surviving son, the next Earl of Derby was his younger brother. 

John Mackenzie, 2nd Earl of Cromartie, (1656-1731) -Page 9- 

He was born about 1656 and when, in 1685, he was M.P. for County Ross, it was resolved that, as his father belonged to the nobilitate, he was not allowed to represent the shire. In 1685 he married Lady Elizabeth Gordon but divorced her on 28 July 1698. In April 1691 he was tried before the Court of Justiciary for the murder of the Sieur de la Roche, who had been killed in a brawl in a tavern at Leith, but was acquitted. On 25 April 1701 he married Mary Murray and they became the parents of eight children. She died before 1717 as in that year he married Anne Fraser, the twice widowed daughter of Lord Lovat, and they became the parents of four children. In 1724 he had financial troubles and his estates were sequestrated. He died on 20 February 1731, at Castle Leod, aged about seventy-four, and his widow died on 10 August 1734. 

John Murray, 1st Duke of Atholl "Ian Cam", (1660-1724) -Page2- 

Being blind in one eye, he was known as "Ian Cam". Having been a zealous supporter of William III, as one of the Principal Secretaries of State, he was created Earl of Tullibardine by patent on 27 July 1696, in his father's lifetime, at the Castle of Atre, in Hainault. He became Secretary of State for Scotland but resigned because of the king remaining suspicious of him. Queen Anne made him Lord Privy Seal in April 1703, a month before he succeeded to his father's honours. On 30 June 1703 he was created Duke of Atholl. In 1705 he resigned his office of Privy Seal and warmly opposed the Union of Scotland with England. Having joined the Tory party, he was elected a Representative Peer in 1710 and 1713; also Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland 1712 to 1714. His eldest son and heir apparent at the time was attainted for high treason in 1715, so he procured an act of Parliament for vesting his honours and estates, after his death, in his next surviving son, James Murray. He also supported the Hanoverians. Lockhart described him as "endowed with good natural parts, though by reason of his proud, imperious, haughty, passionate temper, he was in no ways capable to be the leading man of a party which he aimed at". 

Lord Charles Murray, 1st Earl of Dunmore, (1661-1710) -Page3- 

Lord Charles Murray was the second son of the 1st Marquess of Atholl and became Lieutenant Colonel of Dalzell's Dragoons in 1679, then Colonel of that regiment from 1685 until 1688. On 8 December 1682 he married Catherine Watts and they produced ten children. From 1685 until 1688 he was also Master of the Horse to Queen Mary, James II's consort. On 16 August 1686 he was created Earl of Dunmore, one of the six hereditary Scottish peerages created by James II. As he was suspected of Jacobite sympathies in 1688, he was deprived of the command of the Dalzell's Dragoons (Scots Greys) and imprisoned in June 1689 in Edinburgh Castle. In January 1690 he was released on bail but in May 1692 was charged with High Treason. However, after being committed to The Tower, he was again released on bail. In 1696 he was again arrested on the same charge and imprisoned in Liverpool. However, under Queen Anne when he became a Privy Councillor, he was a steady supporter for the union of England and Scotland. From 1707 until 1710 he was Governor of Blackness Castle. On 19 April 1710 he died and, on 24 April, was buried in the Chapel of Holyrood House. 

ELord William Murray, 2nd Baron Nairne, (1664-1726) -Page 3- 

In January 1683 he entered the navy but in May 1685 he was Commander of a troop of Horse against Archibald Campbell, Earl of Argyll. On 18 January and 28 February 1690 his marriage to Margaret Nairne was contracted. Under the special remainder in the creation of his father-in-law's title, he became the second Baron Nairne and as Lord Nairne was admitted to Parliament on 22 April 1690. In consequence of his opinions he was suspected of abetting the abortive invasion of Scotland by the French in March 1708. On 8 March 1708 a warrant was issued for his apprehension; however, no evidence could be obtained against him. He engaged in the rising of 1715, commanding one of four regiments of Atholl men. Taken prisoner at Preston, 14 November 1715, he was sent to the Tower of London. Condemned to be executed for high treason, his title forfeited but was respited and allowed to benefit of the Act of General Pardon, 6 December 1717. He died at his seat in Scotland aged sixty-one. 

James Stanley, 10th Earl of Derby, (1664-1736) -Page 2- 

From 1685 until 1687 he was a Whig M.P. for Clitheroe, for Preston in 1689 and 1690, and for Lancaster from 1690 until 1702. He served in several campaigns in Flanders under William III and was Lieutenant Colonel in the Foot Guards. In 1704 he became Major General and in 1705 retired from the army. In February 1705 he married Mary Morley and by her fathered one son who died at three months. From 1706 until 1710 he was Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. At the coronation of Queen Anne on 23 April 1702, he was the bearer of the sword, and again on 20 October 1714 for King George I. From 1715 until 1723 he was Captain of the Yeoman of the Guard. He died on 1 February 1736 at Knowsley and was buried at Ormskirk. As he had died childless, his titles and estates went to a distant cousin. 

Lady Amelia Murray, (1666-1743) -Page 3- 

In 1685 she married Hugh Fraser, 9th Lord Lovat, and they became the parents of four daughters and two sons, both of the latter dying in infancy. On 20 March 1696, before his death on 14 September 1696, her husband had settled his estates on his great-uncle and heir-male, Thomas Fraser, of Beaufort. However, after her husband had died, Thomas Fraser and his son, Simon, having failed to secure her eldest daughter in marriage, seized the widowed Lady Lovat and forced her into a clandestine and presumably invalid marriage with Simon Fraser. On 6 September 1698, Thomas Fraser with his son Simon was found guilty of high treason for the abduction of Amelia, Lady Lovat. However, the question of succession to both the dignity and the estates, between the heir general and the heir male, was not settled until nearly forty years later, the matter being complicated by two contradictory decisions of the Court of Session, in 1702 and 1730 respectively. 

William Gordon, 2nd Earl of Aberdeen, (-1745) -Page 5- 

He was his father's fourth but first surviving son. In 1708, as Lord Haddo, he was chosen as a Tory M.P. for County Aberdeen but, as he was the eldest son of a Peer, the House of Commons declared him incapable of sitting for any shire or borough in Scotland. Also in 1708 he married Lady Mary Leslie-Melville and they produced one daughter. At the time of their marriage her father was Governor of Edinburgh Castle, while his father was imprisoned there. His wife died in 1710 and on 25 April 1716 he married Lady Susan Murray, daughter of the 1st Duke of Atholl, and they produced two children. On 1 June 1721 he was elected a Representative Peer and again in 1722. He took a decided part against Ministers and all the Court measures. In 1725 his second wife died in childbirth and, on 9 December 1729, he married Lady Anne Gordon, daughter of the 2nd Duke of Gordon, and they produced five more children. He died on 30 March 1745 at Edinburgh, in his sixty-sixth year, and his widow died there, 26 June 1791, in her seventy-eighth year. 

James Stanley, Lord Strange, (1680-1699) -Page 4- 

He was born on 28 June 1680 and was baptised on 29 June at Knowsley Chapel. Aged nineteen he was in Italy and there of smallpox, in October 1699, either in Naples of Venice. He was taken back to England and buried, on 14 April 1700, at Ormskirk. 

John Farquharson, 9th of Invercauld, (-1750) -Page 8- 

In 1694 his elder brother, William Farquharson, 8th Laird of Invercauld, died at the age of eighteen which made him the 9th Laird. On 15 July 1697 he obtained a declaratory matriculation of his arms from Sir Alexander Erskine of Cambo, Lord Lyon King of Arms. He greatly extended and improved the family estates, but circa 1726 sold Ward House to John Gordon, 3rd of Law. As he had taken part in the 1715 uprising, he was imprisoned for a long time in the Marshalsea. In 1720 he became a Burgess of Inverness and Perth and, in 1728, of Stirling and Queensberry. He married four times but had children by only his third and fourth wives. 

Patrick Kinnaird, 3rd Lord Kinnaird, (-1715) -Page 6- 

After the death of his elder brother in 1698, he became his father's heir and was styled Master of Kinnaird. In 1701 his father died and Patrick became 3rd Lord Kinnaird of Inchture. In 1702 he married Lady Henrietta Maria Murray, daughter of the 1st Earl of Dunmore, but she died of fever, on 27 October 1702, at Drimmie. Then he married Lady Elizabeth Lyon, widow of Charles Gordon, 2nd Earl of Aboyne. Lord Kinnaird opposed the Union of Scotland and England. He died in Edinburgh on 31 March 1715 and his widow married Captain Alexander Grant. 

Sir William Murray, of Ochtertyre, 3rd Baronet, (1682-1739) -Page 10- 

It appears that he was educated at Oxford University and was an accomplished scholar. In 1715, with his father, he was cited as being involved with the Jacobite rising. 

James Murray, Viscount Fincastle, (1683-1704) -Page 6- 

In 1686 his father became Earl of Dunmore and, as the eldest son and heir, was styled Viscount Fincastle. On 24 November 1698 he matriculated at Oxford, Gloucester Hall. On 29 April 1702 he married Janet Murray, daughter of Patrick Murray of Livingstone. On 29 January 1704 he became a Captain in the Scots Foot and, with the army, moved to Breda in The Netherlands where he died, aged only twenty, on 29 September 1704. 

John Sinclair, Master of Sinclair, (-1750) -Page 11- 

He was elected Tory M.P. for Dysart Burghs in 1708. However, theelection was declared void as he was ineligible, being the eldest son of a peer. In the same year he entered the army as Captain-Lieutenant in Preston's Regiment but he had to resign in October 1708, having killed in duels two brothers, Ensign Hugh Schaw and Captain Alexander Schaw. Fleeing to the continent, he served in the Prussian army until he was pardoned by Queen Anne. In 1715 he took part in the Jacobite Rising and was present at the Battle of Sheriffmuir, 13 November 1715. Because of his involvement, he was attainted and so became incapable of inheriting the family's title when his father died in 1723. In 1633 he married Margaret, widow of James Carnegie, Earl of Southesk, and daughter of James Stewart, Earl of Galloway. She was to die childless in 1747. However, in 1736 he obtained an Act of Parliament enabling him to inherit property but without affecting the forfeiture of the title, which he never assumed. On 24 April 1750 he married Amelia Murray, daughter of Lord George Murray; but this marriage was not to last very long as he died, 2 November 1750, in his sixty-seventh year. 

John Murray, Marquess of Tullibardine, (1684-1709) -Page 5- 

He was a student at the University of Leiden and became a Colonel in the service of the States of Holland. He served at Oudenaarde, 30 June-11 July 1708, and at Malplaquet, 31 August-11 September 1709, where he was killed. 

John Murray, 2nd Earl of Dunmore, (1685-1752) -Page 6- 

When his elder brother died, John Murray as his father's heir, became Viscount Fincastle. As an Ensign he served at the battle of Blenheim in 1704. He was Brigadier General when Vigo was captured in 1719, and served in Flanders in 1732. In 1743 he was at the Battle of Dettingen where he was made a Knight Banneret by the king. In 1713 and 1714 he was a Representative Peer and again from 1727 until 1752. From 1731 until 1752 he was Lord of the Bedchamber and Governor of Plymouth from 1745 until 1752. He was sixty-seven years old when he died in London on 18 April 1752 and, as he was unmarried, it was a younger brother who as his heir succeeded him. In 1720 he had bought the manor of Stanwell in Middlesex and it was here that John Murray, 2nd Earl of Dunmore, was buried. 

William Drummond, 4th Viscount Strathallan, (-1746) -Page 8- 

He had a charter under the Great Seal, 28 February 1695, of the estate of Machany forfeited by his father, and in 1704 was a commander of supply for County Perth. On 26 May 1711 he succeeded his 3rd cousin and became 4th Viscount Strathallan as well as Baron Maderty. On 1 November 1712 at Nairne, he contracted his marriage to Margaret Murray and they became the parents of at least thirteen children. During the Jacobite uprising of 1715, he is said to have attended the Earl of Mar's Hunting at Braemar on 26 August; and he was in command of a battalion of Drummonds at Sheriffmuir, 13 November 1715, where he was captured and imprisoned. However, not being prosecuted, he came under the Act of Grace of 1717. In the 'Forty-Five' he joined Prince Charles Edward at Perth in September 1745 and was then appointed Governor of Perth and Commander-in-Chief of the forces during the march into England. He commanded the squadron of Perthshire Horse at the defeat of General Hawley at Falkirk, 17 January 1746, and also at Culloden where he was killed in battle. Many years later, King George III when viewing a portrait of Lord Strathallan, remarked: "They were gallant and honourable gentlemen; I would I had been one of them." 

Amelia Fraser, Baroness Lovat, (-1763) -Page 9 

She was a young girl when her father died in 1696. Her cousin Simon Fraser, tried to induce her to elope with him but she refused and returned to her mother. Simon Fraser then seized her estates and for this and other acts of violence, he was tried in absence in 1698, with sentence of death and attainder pronounced against him. Simon Fraser next forcibly possessed himself of the person of Amelia's mother and compelled her to marry him, a crime for which he was tried and outlawed in 1701. In 1702 Amelia Fraser, Baroness Lovat, married Alexander Mackenzie who subsequently adopted the Fraser surname. They became the parents of two children but it was the same cousin Simon Fraser who tried to become the next Lord Lovat. However, in the end he was executed on Tower Hill on 9 April 1747. 

John Cochrane, 4th Earl of Dundonald, (1687-1720) -Page 6- 

Aged fourteen, he entered the Glasgow University. In 1705 his nineteen-year-old brother died, making the eighteen-year-old John Cochrane 4th Earl of Dundonald. On 4 May 1706 he married Lady Anne Murray and they produced four children. However, four years later she died of smallpox. At the election of Scottish Representative Peers on 17 June 1708, as he was a minor his votes were set aside. However, in 1713 and 1714 he was a Scottish Representative Peer. On 15 October 1715 he married Mary, Dowager Duchess of Beaufort, and daughter of the 2nd Duke of Leeds. From 1715 until 1719 he was Colonel of the 4th Horse Guards and died, 5 June 1720, aged nearly thirty-three. 

John Ashburnham, 3rd Baron & 1st Earl of Ashburnham, (-1737) -Page 4 

From February to June 1710 he was a Tory M.P. for Hastings and when on 16 June 1710 his elder brother died of smallpox only thirty-one years old, John Ashburnham became the 3rd Baron Ashburnham. On 21 October 1710 he married Lady Mary Butler who died in childbirth on 2 January 1713 and was buried at Ashburnham. From 1713 until 1715 he was a Colonel of the 1st troop of Horse Guards. Then, on 24 July 1714, he married Henrietta Maria, Dowager Countess of Anglesey, a cousin of his first wife. Four years later she died, thirty-one years old, and she, too, was buried at Ashburnham. On 14 March 1724 he married a third time, to Lady Jemima Grey, second daughter and co-heir of the 1st Duke of Kent. She died, thirty-three years old, on 7 July 1731 and was also buried at Ashburnham. From December 1728 to June 1731 he was Lord of the Bedchamber to the Prince of Wales. On 14 May 1730 he was created Viscount St.Asaph and Earl of Ashburnham and, on 23 November 1731, became Captain of the Yeomen of the Guard which he remained until he died on 14 March 1737, aged forty-nine, survived by only one son from his third marriage. 

William Murray, Marquess of Tullibardine, (1689-1746) -Page 5 - 

Matriculated at St.Andrew's 25 January 1706, he entered the Navy in 1707. One of the first to join the rising in August 1715 for the restoration of the House of Stuart, he was consequently attainted of high treason on 17 February 1716, but escaped to Brittany. As his Jacobite actions brought disgrace upon the family, his father procured an Act of Parliament to divert his titles and estates from the heir to his next son, Lord James Murray. However, on 1 February 1717, William was created Duke of Rannoch by James III, the titular king. Returning to Scotland with the Spanish force, he was defeated at the battle of Glenshiel on 18 June 1719. He again escaped, though 2,000 pounds Stirling was offered for his capture. In October 1734 he "had been a long prisoner for debt" at Paris. After 26 years he accompanied the Chevalier St.George to Scotland, on whose behalf he unfurled the Royal Standard at Glenfinnan on 19 August 1745. Tullibardine took Blair Castle, his own family's seat, by force from his own brother. He accompanied the Young Pretender into Scotland and was intimately identified with his cause. After the battle of Culloden, he surrendered himself on 27 April 1746 and being very ill, was committed to The Tower of London. There he died unmarried on 9 July 1746 of a stoppage of urine, and was buried in the Chapel of The Tower. 

James Murray, 2nd Duke of Atholl, (1690-1764) -Page 5- 

He was quiet and dull in comparison with his fiery elder brother, Tullibardine. In 1712 he was Captain and Lieutenant Colonel of a Grenadier company in the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards; and M.P. (Whig) for Perth, 1715-1724. In 1733 he obtained an Act of Parliament that the attainder of his brother should extend only to that brother, and not to any other heirs male of his father. He was Lord Privy Seal from June 1733 to 6 April 1763, and elected a Representative Peer in 1733. In 1736, in accordance with the Act of Parliament of 1715 and even though his elder brother was still alive, he succeeded his cousin, James Stanley, 10th Earl of Derby, in both the Sovereignty of the Isle of Man as well as in the Peerage of England as Lord Strange. He accompanied the Duke of Cumberland to Scotland in 1746, and was Keeper of the Great Seal from 6 April 1763 till his death. His first wife, Jane Frederick, was the widow of James Lannoy, a Hammersmith merchant; by her he was the father of two sons, both dying in infancy, and two daughters. Consequently when he died his honours and estates went to his nephew and son-in-law, John Murray. 

Lord Charles Murray, (1691-1720) -Page 5- 

Lord Charles Murray, a cornet 5th Dragoons, joined the Chevalier in 1715 and had the command of a regiment. After the surrender at Preston, his Lordship, being amongst the prisoners, was tried by a court-martial as a deserter and sentenced to be shot; however he was reprieved and died in 1720. 

Margaret Murray, (1692-1773) -Page 8- 

Born in 1692; she married William Drummond, 4th Viscount Strathallan, - in 1712 and they became the parents of four sons. Her husband was actively involved in the Jacobite uprising in 1715. Because of her own support of Prince Charles Edward, from 11 February 1746 until 22 November 1746 she was imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle. While in prison, her husband was killed in the cause of the same prince. As his widow she survived another twenty-seven years. 

Lord George Murray, (1694-1760) - Page 5- 

The most brilliant of the Jacobite sons of the 1st Duke of Atholl, he joined the Earl of Mar in 1715, commanded a regiment, and afterwards escaped to Europe. He was with his brother, the Marquess of Tullibardine, at Kintail in 1719, and was said to have been wounded at the battle of Glenshiels. Again he escaped and later served for a time with the King of Sardinia. Eventually pardoned, he returned to Scotland but, in 1745, became Lieutenant-General to the Young Pretender. It was said: "Had Prince Charles slept during the whole of the expedition and allowed Lord George to act for him according to his own judgement, he would have found the Crown of Great Britain on his head when he awoke." A survivor from ancient times was the "crois taraidh" or "Fiery Cross", the Scottish successor of the Old Norse "fire arrow". Two pieces of wood were charred at the upper end and then fastened together to form a Cross, to which was attached a rag dipped in sheep's or goat's blood. Being both burnt and loody, the Cross represented Fire and Sword. In time of war, the chief or chieftain sent it in relays throughout every township and clachan in his territory. Each successive bearer, usually mounted on a garron pony, shouted out as he passed a single word: the name of the Gathering Place. The last occasion on which the Fiery Cross called clansmen to war was in 1746, when Lord George Murray sent it out through Atholl in his attempt to retake Blair Castle from the advancing Hanoverians. On the eve of the battle of Culloden in the Scottish Highlands, fought between the Duke of Cumberland's troops and the rebellious Jacobites in 1746, a shrieking human-headed monster with burning red eyes and black leathery wings hovered over the terrified soldiers. Called the skree, it could be readily dismissed as fantasy, were it not for the disquieting fact that one of the eyewitnesses was none other than Lord George Murray, a well-respected general renowned for his level-headed outlook. It is said, that after Culloden while hidden in the Highlands, he read the Bible for months on end. After Culloden he was attained by parliament, but he made his escape and was received by the Chevalier in Rome. He died in exile in Holland. 

Alexander Stewart, 6th Earl of Galloway, (1694-1773) -Page 13- 

He was styled Lord Garlies from birth until in 1746 he became 6th Earl of Galloway on the demise of his father. On 31 October 1716 Lord George Murray described him as follows: "Lord Garlies is a mighty pretty gentleman, and entirely loyal", loyal to the Stuarts he meant. "If ever the occasion offer, (he) will venture his life and fortune in his Majesty's service". n 1718 or 1719 he married Lady Anne Keith. When she died in 1728, he married Lady Catherine Cochrane in January 1729 who---like her sisters Anne, Duchess of Hamilton and Susan, Countess of Strathmore---was celebrated for her beauty. From about 1743 until 1768 he was a Lord of Police; Grand Master of reemasons, 1757 until 1759; Lieutenant General and President of the Council of the Royal Archers, 1765-1768. Much later in life, Horace Walpole wrote of him as "a man indecently Jacobite"; and in 1761 a Mrs. Delany found him "a thin, dismal looking man". On 24 September 1773 he died at Aix in Provence aged seventy-nine. 

William Murray, 3rd Earl of Dunmore, (1696-1756) -Page 7- 

Born in 1696 and in 1728 married his first cousin, Catherine Murray, and they became the parents of seven children. He was involved with the Rising of 1745 and fought at Preston Pans, Falkirk and Culloden. Forced to surrender, he pleaded guilty on 20 December 1746 was pardoned as to his life but kept a prisoner first at Beverley, then at Lincoln. Here he died aged sixty on 1 December 1756 and was buried there in the Cathedral. 

Lady Susan Murray, (1699-1725) -Page 5- 

Born on 15 April 1699 at Huntingtower, she became the second wife of William Gordon, 2nd Earl of Aberdeen. On 22 June 1725 she died in childbed and was buried at Methlic. Her husband married a third time. 

John Lindsay,20th Earl of Crawford, 4th Earl of Lindsay, (1702-1749) -Page 10- 

He became well known as "the gallant Earl of Crawford". Educated at the University of Glasgow and at the military academy at Vaudeuil in Paris, he entered the army in 1726. In January 1732 he became a Representative Peer for Scotland which he remained until his death. In 1733 he became Gentleman of the Bedchamber to the Prince of Wales, and in 1734 and 1735 was Grand Master of the Freemasons in Scotland. In 1735 he joined the Imperial army and was at the battle of Claussen on 17 October 1735. In April 1738 he served with the Russian army against the Turks. He distinguished himself in various engagements, as also at the battle of Krotzha, near Belgrade, on 22 July 1739 when his horse was killed under him and he himself severely wounded. He returned to Scotland and was Adjutant General 1739-1743, then Colonel of the 43rd Foot (the "Black Watch") 1739-1740. At the Battle of Dettingen, 16 June 1743, he held a command and there was made a Knight Banneret by the King. On 30 April 1745 he conducted the retreat at Fontenoy. He then returned to Scotland to repress the Rising of 1745 and shared in the defeat of the Allies at Roucoux, in the Netherlands, 11 October 1746. At Belford on 3 March 1747 he married Lady Jean Murray but she died of fever within six months. He himself died on 24 December 1749 in great suffering from a wound, inflicted in 1739, which had broken out for the 29th time. 

James Douglas-Hamilton, 5th Duke of Hamilton, 2nd Duke of Brandon, (1703-1743) - Page 13- 

Little is known about him except that he reflected family traits in finding it difficult to make up his mind whether he was a Jacobite or not. Born in 1703, he was styled Marquess of Clydesdale until, in 1712, his father was killed in a duel in Hyde Park which made him 5th Duke of Hamilton. Educated at Winchester in 1716 and 1717, he was a Tory but intrigued with the exiled Stuart dynasty. From 1727 he was Lord of the Bedchamber until, in 1733, he resigned on account of his opposition to Walpole. 

Andrew Rollo, 5th Lord Rollo, (1703-1765) -Page 7- 

At the age of forty he entered the army and distinguished himself at the Battle of Dettingen, 27 June 1743. After several promotions he became a brigadier-general. He was actively engaged in the first American war and took part in the capture of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, July 1758, then in the reduction of Canada in 1760, and after that in the seizure of Martinique in 1762. His health suffered so that he was compelled to leave Cuba in July 1762, arriving in England in October 1762. 

Lady Susan Cochrane, (1706-1754) -Page 13- 

In Edinburgh, on 25 July 1725, she married Charles Lyon, Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne. However, three years later he died aged only twenty-eight in consequence of an accidental wound received in a street brawl at Forfar. James Carnegie of Finhaven, when drunk, gave him his death-blow and was tried for his murder; however, he was acquitted by the Court of Justiciary at Edinburgh on 3 August 1728. Childless, she remained a widow until, on 2 April 1745 at Castle Lyon, she married her factor, George Forbes, who was Master of the Horse to Charles Edward Stuart, "the Young Chevalier". She became Roman Catholic and died in 1754 in a convent at Charenton near Paris. It took until 15 February 1766 before her will was proven by her husband. 

James Ogilvy, 6th Earl of Findlater, 3rd Earl of Seafield, (1714-1770) -Page 6- 

From 1730 he was styled Lord Deskford until, in 1764, he succeeded his father and became Earl of Findlater and Earl of Seafield. He finished his education with foreign travel. On 23 April 1740 Horace Walpole wrote about him to General Conway: "You saw Lord Deskford at Geneva, don't you like him? He is a mighty sensible man---there are few young people who have so good understanding. He is mighty grave and so are you, but you both can be pleasant, when you have a mind. Indeed one can make you pleasant, but his solemn Scotchery is not a little formidable." On 9 June 1749 he married Lady Mary Murray, daughter of the Duke of Atholl, and they became the parents of one son. From 1754 until 1761 he was a Commissioner of Customs; from 1761 until 1770 Chancellor of King's College, Aberdeen, and from 1765 until 1770 a Lord of Police. On 3 November 1770 he died by his own hand. 

Patrick Graeme, 8th of Inchbrakie, (1717-1796) -Page 16- 

He was a Captain in the 73rd Regiment of the Scotch Brigade in Holland. In 1770 he was served "heir to Patrick, 1st of Inchbrakie, 2nd son of William, 1st Earl of Montrose." He was one of the jury for William Moray of Abercairney, and then David Graeme of Orchill. 

Angus/Aeneas Mackintosh, 22nd Chief and Last Heritable Steward of Lochaber, (-) -Page 15- 

He was a captain in the Black Watch, a regiment raised in Scotland for home duties and to keep the Highland clans in order. There was much consternation when, under orders of the king, the regiment was sent to England. Some of the men, suspecting they were about to be shipped abroad, made their escape back to Scotland, only to be captured and executed at Northampton. In 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie left France for Inverness and began to amass supporters. Angus, Chief of the Mackintoshes, who was still in the Black Watch under the orders of King George II, wisely, as was reported by Field-Marshal Wade, did not join the Prince, but did not stop his wife, Anne, from playing her part in the Jacobite uprising. 

Lady Mary Murray, (1720-1795) -Page 6- 

In 1749 she married James Ogilvy, 6th Earl of Findlater, and they became the parents of one son. She was a capable woman, who by her good management saved the family estates from having to be sold. Her husband died by his own hand, she survived him by twenty-five years. 

Hon. Norman Mackenzie (-) -Page 18- 

He was an officer in the Scotch Dutch military and perished at sea going from Scotland to Holland with new recruits. 

Anne Farquharson, (-) -Page 15 

Anne Farquharson of Invercauld, the wife of Angus Mackintosh, 22nd Chief and Last Heritable Steward of Lochaber, was considered "an amazing woman". Bold and fearless, she raised the clan in her husband's absence, then inspected and readied them for Prince Charles Edward. Because of her bold military strategy she became known as 'Colonel Anne', and it was under her direction that the famous 'Rout of Moy' was achieved. The Rout took place in 1746 when, after fighting successfully at Falkirk, Bonnie Prince Charlie arrived at Moy Hall, to be received by Lady Mackintosh. News had spread that there were many Government troops at Inverness, about 1,700, marching towards Moy. The Mackintoshes and their fighting allies, the Camerons, numbered about 500. Instead of panicking, Lady Mackintosh sent out her blacksmith, Donald Fraser, with four other men to watch the road from Inverness. At about midnight they saw the government troops approaching, and Donald immediately told his men to go and stand behind some nearby peat stacks which in the dark, looked like rows of men. As the troops came nearer, Fraser and the others fired their guns loudly, calling for the Camerons and Mackintoshes, and managed to confuse the government troops (who believed the Mackintoshes must have huge numbers of men) into retreating to Inverness. Donald became the hero of Moy and his sword and anvil are still kept at Moy Hall. However, in the fateful Battle of Culloden, which extinguished all hopes for Bonnie Prince Charlie, more Mackintoshes were killed than any other clan, so many of them, in fact, that on the deserted and eerie site of the battle today there are three gravestones to the Mackintoshes, wheras other clans have only one each. The victorious Duke of Cumberland went on to Inverness. There he stayed with the dowager Lady Mackintosh in the same room that Prince Charles Edward had slept in just a short time before. The old lady, Anne's mother-in-law, was rumoured to say later: "I've had two Kings' bairns living with me in my time, and to tell you the truth I wish I may never hae another." Colonel Anne was taken prisoner after Culloden but was soon released. 

Cosmo George Gordon, 3rd Duke of Gordon, (1721-1752) -Page 12- 

His father was an intimate friend of the King of Prussia as well as of the Grand Duke of Tuscany; in honour of the latter he was named Cosmo. Born about 1721, he was styled Marquess of Huntly until, in 1728, he succeeded his father to become 3rd Duke of Gordon. Without her father's knowledge or approval, on 3 September 1741 he married Lady Catherine Gordon, only daughter of his own brother-in-law. They became the parents of six children. From 1747 until 1752 he was Representative Peer for Scotland. Under the Jurisdiction Act of 1747 he claimed �22,300 but received only �5,282 of which �4,000 was for the regality of Huntly. He was only thirty-two when he died in Breteuil near Amiens in France, on 5 August 1752, and was buried in Elgin Cathedral. His widow married the twenty-five-year-old Staats Long Morris who came from New York. When she died in 1779 she, too, was buried in Elgin Cathedral. 

James Francis Edward Drummond, 5th Viscount Strathallan, (1722-1766) -Page 15- 

In September 1740 he went to France and became an officer in Lord John Drummond's regiment. On 7 October 1745 he landed at Montrose and, with 300 men from Balquhidder, joined Prince Charles Edward at Edinburgh on 15 October 1745. On 17 January 1746 he fought at Falkirk and, after the battle, went into town in disguise to reconnoitre. After the battle of Culloden he escaped and returned to France. On 16 April 1746 his father died and he became 5th Viscount Strathallan. However, this lasted only two days as on 18 April 1746, as he had not surrendered to the British government, his title was forfeited. Remaining in France, he died there nineteen years later. 

James Farquharson, 10th of Invercauld, (1722-1805) - Page 15 

The 10th Laird of Invercauld introduced many improvements in forestry and agriculture. He married twice, first to his cousin Amelia Murray and they produced eleven children, of which only one daughter survived. When he died, the Chieftainship probably went to the family Farquharson of Finzean, while his daughter became the next Lady of Invercauld. 

Hon. Hugh Mackenzie, (-) -Page 18- 

Like his brother Norman, he was an officer in the Scotch Dutch military and in 1757 raised a company in Montgomery's batallion of Highlanders, being the eldest captain in that regiment in America. 

John Murray,3rd Duke of Atholl, (1729-1774) -Page 11- 

He was Captain in the 54th (Highland) Regiment of Foot. M.P. (Tory) for Perth 1761-1764. Due to his own father's attainder, his right of succession was doubtful and on his uncle's death he presented a petition to the Crown. On 7 February 1764, the House of Lords resolved "that the Petitioner hath a right to the titles, honours and dignities of Duke of Atholl, Marquess of Tullibardine, Earl of Strathtay and Strathardle, Viscount Balquhidar, Glenalmond and Glenlyon, Lord Murray, Balvenie and Gask". He was chosen a Representative Peer, 21 August 1767, and again in 1768. Knight of The Thistle, 23 December 1767. Grand Master of Freemasons, 1773 till his death. In 1753 he had married the daughter of his uncle and predecessor. Through inheritance they were sovereigns of the Isle of Man; however, in 1765 they sold these rights for 70,000 Pounds Stirling to the government, retaining the right to present the kings and queens of England with two falcons on the day of coronation as well as manorial, patronage and mineral rights. He died in a fit of delirium. He was seized with an apoplectic fit, then swallowed a teacupful of hartshorn (something like ammonia), after which he bled violently at the nose and mouth and complained of being so hot that the only cure would be to sit up to his chin in the River Tay. In fact, his reason had gone. At eight o'clock one evening he managed to slip out of the house unseen and, first leaving his hat on the bank of the river, plunged in. His body was found eight miles downstream the next day. 

John Murray,4th Earl of Dunmore, (1730-1809) -Page 14- 

He was born in 1730 and, in 1752 as his father's heir, he became known as Viscount Fincastle until, in 1756, he succeeded and then became third Earl of Dunmore. He was Ensign and Lieutenant in the 3rd Foot Guards. On 21 February 1759 at Edinburgh he married Lady Charlotte Stewart, daughter of the 6th Earl of Galloway, and they became the parents of eight children. He was a Representative Peer for Scotland from 1761 until 1774 and again from 1776 until 1790. In 1769 and 1770 he was Governor of New York and then Governor of Virginia in 1770. Here, although his proceedings highly exasperated the colonists, he remained till the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Then from 1787 until 1796 he was Governor of the Bahama Islands. Returned to England, he died on 25 February 1809 in Ramsgate and his widow died on 11 November 1818, at Southwood House near Ramsgate. Both were buried at St. Lawrence in the Isle of Thanet, Kent. 

Hon. Henry Drummond, of The Grange, (1730-1795) -Page 16 

At Machany, Henry and his brother Robert, 'had been in the habit of watching the movements of Hanoverian troops from trees'. This was only a short while before Prince Charles Edward Stuart would make his last bid to regain the throne. However, as Robert was about fifteen and Henry about fourteen, their father, to keep them out of harms way, sent them to London to be cared for by their uncle, Andrew Drummond, the founder of Drummond's Bank. Their uncle brought them up as though they were his own sons and instructed them into the banking business. On 16 April 1746 at Culloden, their father was slain in his service for the ill-fated Stuart pretender. Sir Thomas Winnington, Paymaster-General of the Forces, suspecting their uncle of Stuart support, sent a warrant to Andrew Drummond's house, seized all his papers and spread the rumour he was ruined. However, this was found to be wrong when his meticulous accounts, were found to have no trace of supporting the Jacobites. However, one of Andrew's clients, Lord Lovat, was not so fortunate, having been found guilty of treason and sentenced to be executed. In the crowd that gathered a woman called out: "You'll get that nasty head of yours chopped off, you ugly old Scotch dog", to which he answered, "I believe I shall, you ugly old English bitch." On his way to the Tower he passed through Charing Cross and Henry and Robert Drummond rushed to a window to see him. Their uncle, 'without looking up from his desk, exclaimed, "I suppose you would run to the window to watch me if I was to be beheaded"'. In 1753 Robert Drummond married Winefred (sic) Thompson, whose mother was an illegitimate daughter of Sir Berkeley Lucy, while in 1761 Henry Drummond married Elizabeth Compton whose mother was a legitimate daughter of the same Sir Berkeley Lucy. During the years 1765-1772, most of the banking business was done by Robert Drummond as Henry, during this period, was in partnership with Robert Cox, an army agent. Henry was already experienced in this work as, during the Seven Years War, he had been agent for the 42nd (Black Watch) and 46th regiments of Foot. Later on this experience became invaluable during the war of American Independence. However, as early as 1763 Henry Drummond 'handled a considerable amount of American business' as well as acting 'as financial agent for New Jersey'. In December 1774 Henry Drummond bought his way into Parliament as a member for the 'pocket borough' of Wendover in Buckinghamshire. Six years later he moved his parliamentary seat to Midhurst, in Sussex, and stayed there until 1790. In middle-age, Henry and Robert belonged to a group of friends known as 'the Gang' which met once a month for dinner. Not only were these enjoyable social occasions but they also became important for the simple reason that all were financiers and politicians. In 1795 Drummond's Bank had 2,850 accounts, including 9 Dukes, 82 peers, and 94 other persons of title. Also, people like Johann hristian Bach, son of Johann Sebastian, and Thomas Gainsborough as well as Josiah Wedgwood banked at Drummond's. From 1784 onwards King George III had some financial dealings with Henry Drummond while still banking at Coutt's. However, when in 1802 the wild supporters of Thomas Coutt's son-in-law, the politician Sir Francis Burdett, sang revolutionary songs outside the royal residence, the king transferred his account to Drummond's. In this he was followed by his daughters the Princesses Augusta, Elizabeth, Mary, Sophia and Amelia. On 4 July 1794 Henry Drummond's only son, also named Henry, died aged only thirty-two. Previously, on 6 May 1794, Henry Sr. had made his will anticipating his son's early death, and so made provisions for his wife and four grandchildren. However, when Henry Sr. died on 24 June 1795, his executors found that his 'Personal Property at the most favourable Calculation would not pay the Debts'. These large debts were those of his son and, as a result, nothing was left over to be divided by his grandchildren. 

Lady Jane Murray, (1730-1747) -Page 10- 

In the family interest she was ordered to marry her first cousin, the future 3rd Duke of Atholl. However, she refused, and aged seventeen she eloped with the forty-five-year-old Earl of Crawford. On her honeymoon she caught the plague and died; followed by her husband two years later but he died of an old battle-wound. 

James Murray, Major-General, (1734-1794) - Page 11- 

A Major-General and M.P. for Perthshire, he was nevertheless recognised as a fanatic and described as " being with a deranged state of understanding". 

James Ogilvy, 7th Earl of Findlater, 4th Earl of Seafield, (1750-1811) -Page 13- 

From 1764 he was styled Lord Deskford until, in 1770, he succeeded his father as Earl of Findlater and Earl of Seafield. He studied at Oxford where he matriculated on 9 April 1769. According to Gentlemen Magazine, after leaving Oxford he lived almost entirely on the Continent, and only a short time with his wife. In Bruxelles, in 1779, he had married Christina Theresa Josepha Murray whose father had become a Count of the Holy Roman Empire as well as Lieutenant General in the Austrian service. In 1811, aged sixty-one, he died in Dresden and was buried there.
