Gask, CO. Perth, M.A., Barrister-at-Law, J.P. h.
1831 ; m. 1856, Frances Dorothy, dau. of Henry
Jebb, Esq. of Boston, co. Lincoln.

Lineage. — The family of Olifard or Oliphant is of
Korman origin, and was settled in Northamptonshire shortly
after the Conquest. It never subsequently appears as a
name of note in England, but for centuries occupied a distin-
guished place in the annals of Scotland. Two interesting
work.s concerning the Oliphants have recently been published,
viz.: "The Oliphants in Scotland," and ''The Jacobite
Lairds of Gask."

David Olifard was a godson of David I. of Scotland,
and had the good fortune to save the Kings life
at the raising of the siege of 'Winchester, in 1141. Soon

afterwards he appears as holding lands from the Crown in
Scotland, and eventually as Justiciary of the southern part of
that kingdom, known as Laodonia, but of much greater
extent than the Lothians of the present day.

From him sprang many distinguished men, the best
known in history being Sir William Oliphant who
defended Stirling Castle against the English in 1303, and
whose son. Sib Walter Oliphant, was, as Crawford says in
his Peerage, " So gallant and brave a man that his merit
preferred him to a marriage with the Lady Elizabeth
Bruce, daughter to King Eobert I. and sister to King
David II."

In 1458, Sib Laurence Oliphant, the fifth in direct descent
from Sir Walter, just mentioned, was created Lord Oliphant.
To him succeeded John, 2nd Lord, both of whose sons, Colin,
Master of Oliphant, and Laurence, Abbot of Incheffray, fell \
at Flodden. Colin left two sons, Laurence, afterwards 3rd'i
Lord, and William, of Newton and Thrumster.

William Oliphant, Esq. of Newton, in the co. of Perth,s .
who is mentioned in a complaint to the Privy Council oi •
