Lineage.— Walter Scott, Laird of Buccleuch, the greal-



great-grandfather of the 1st Earl of Buccleuch {see Burke's
Peerage, Buccleuch, Duke of), was slain in the streets of
Edinburgh, in 1552, in an encounter with Sir Walter Kerr, of
Ccssford, leaving besides his legitimate issue, a natural son,

Walter Scott, of Goudilands, b. 1532, who got his lands
from his father when very young " in order to keep a watch 1
at his house of Goudilands, and a tour built for that purpose
(which was called the watch tour of Branxholm), in order to
spy and give a check to the enimes of Buccleuch, or of his
country, and to warn the laird of his danger." MS. Statist.
Acct. Parish Hawick, 1738). He was a person of good points
and great bravery. At the raid of Reidswyre, 7 July, 1575,
where Lord Russell, eldest son of the Earl of Bedford, was
taken prisoner, the Laird of Buccleuch being then very young,
this Walter Scott led the clan, his qualities having fitted him
more than any other to perform this duty. He was a witness
to the will of the Laird of Buccleuch, at Hawick, 11 April,
1574. On 13 July, 1592, James VI., "with the advice of the
lords of his secret council, gave and granted full power anct
commission to Walter Scott, of Goudilands, and Mr. Gideon
Murray conjunctly and severely to demolish and cast down
to the ground the places, houses and fortaliees of Harden
and Dryhoip, pertaining to Walter Scott, of Harden, who, with
James Stewart, sometimes of Tynneis, was art and part of
the treasonable fact perpetrated against the King's person at
Falkland." Pitcaini's Crim. Trials, v. I., jiar. II., p. 275.)
On 13 April, 1596, he was with the Laird of Buccleuch at the
release of " Kinmont Willie," from the castle of Carlisle. He
d. the following Nov., aged 64, and was buried in the aisle of
the old church of St. Mary, Hawick, where his tombstone still
remains; at his death he was s. by his son,

Walter Scott, of Goudilands, whose name appears to a
contract signed at Jedburgh, 29 March, 1612, between James
VI. and several of his subjects; he received from Walter,
Earl of Buccleuch, a charter in his favour, dated 17 March,
1626, of the lands of Goudilands and Westcoatrig. He m.
Jean, dau. of Sir Andrew lUddell, of that ilk, by whom (who
d. 1660, aged 60) he had two sons, 1 Walter, his successor,
2 Charles, of Crumhaugh, who had a son, Walter, successor
to his uncle,

Walter Scott, of Goudilands, the eldest son, .s. his father,
and was rated in the county valuation book of 1843 for lands
in the parishes of Hawick and Cavers. He d. s. p. before nee.
1072, having executed a "bond of tailzie," dated 13 Oct.
1671, and registered 8 Dec. 1672, and various deeds relative to-
Goudilands, in favour of his nephew,

Walter Scott, of Goudilands, previously of Crumhaugh,
6. 1632. Whether from being in debt or other causes, the
estate of Goudilands passed soon after into the Buccleuch
family, but W^alter Scott retained other lands which he in-
herited from his uncle. He ■»(. Janet Glendinon, and d. 20'
Dec. 1700, having had, with a younger son, Waltei;, of whom
hereafter, an elder son,

Charles, b. 1664 ; m. Rachel, dau. of Langlads of that ilk,

and d. v. p. 22 Oct. 1098, leaving a son,
Walter, of Crumhaugh and Howpasley, b. 14 Aug. 1689,
who s. his grandfather and in. Beatrice Scott, by whom he
had a son,
Charles, of Crumhaugh, &c., b. 1719 ; d. 1757-58, leaving
two sons and a dau. Being much involved, his estates
were all sold in 1703 and 1761, and the male line of his
sons has since become extinct.

liineagre. — Among the numerous baronial houses which
formerly possessed great influence in England, that of Le
Scrope (or Scrope) stands conspicuous. Though some of their
titles are now dormant, and others extinct, few families were
more distinguished in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries, and
Shakespeare has given immortality to no less than three indi-
viduals of the name. The house of Scrope was ennobled in
two branches, Sckope of Bolton ^r\i\. Sckope of Mashaiu and
Uj'ml, and its members shared the glory of all the great
victories of the Middle Ages. An unbroken male descent from
the Conquest, if not from the time of Edward the Con-
fessor, and the emphatic declaration of the Earl of Arundel,
given in 13S6, as a witness In the celebrated controversy
tetween Sir Richard Scrope and Sir llobert Grosvenor for the
right of bearing the coat "azure, a bend or," as well as of
numerous other deponents in that cause, that the representa-
tive of this family " was descended from noble and generous
tlood, of gentry and ancient ancestry, who had always pre-
served their name and estate in dignity and honour," as well
as their alliances and property, sufficiently attest their anti-
quity and importance ; whilst the mere enumeration of the
dignities which they attained between the reigns of Edward
II. and Charles I. proves the high rank they enjoyed. In
this period of SOO years, the house of Scrope produced two Earls
and twenty Barons, one Chancellor, four Treasurers, and two
Chief Justices of England, one Archbishop and two Bishops,
five Knights of the Garter, and numerous Bannerets, the
highest military order in the days of chivalry.

Eichard Scrope held various manors in Worcestershire,
Herefordshire, and Shropshire in the time of Edward the
Confessor, as appears on the authority of Domesday Book, at
the compilation of which they were possessed by his son,

Osborne Fitz-Richard, or Fitz-Scrop, who, in 1067, whilst
William the Conquerob and the greater part of his nobles
were in Normandy, assisted the Castellan of Hereford in sub-
duing the rebel Edric. From him descended the Lords Scrope
of Bolton (Sir William Scrope, K.G., eldest son of the 1st Lord
Scrope, of Bolton, was created Earl of Wiltes, 1397), the
Lords Scrope of Masham, and the Scropes of Castle Cooinbe,
