Abstract:

This important work of Scottish genealogy was originally published in 1890 in a limited edition of only one hundred privately circulated copies. The text is divided into eleven chapters, detailing the ancestry of eleven venerable Scottish families: the Allan family, the Dalrymple family of Waterside, the Halkerston family of Halkerston Beath, the Hardy family, the Liston family, the McCall family, the Orr family, the Ranken family of Colden, the Scott family of Thirlestane, the Wilkie family of Rathobyres and the Young family. For each family, the author presents a plethora of archival information including numerous illustrative documents, sixteen pedigree sheets, portraits, illustrations of seals and coat of arms, traditions, anecdotes, tombstone inscriptions and extensive biographical material. The original index has been retained for this edition.
