whom Douglas
nuikes the following statement :— William Bloncrielf, who
married Jean Oliphant, "is said to have had another son,
Mr. Arcliibald Moncrieff, who was minister at Abernethy, in
Perthshire, and progenitor of Mr. William Moncrieff,
minister of Blackford, who, upon the death of Sir Hugh, of
Tubbermallo, claimed the baronetship, but as we can find
no documents to prove liis succession, we cannot here





deduce his (leseent." The Tiibbermallo, or Tippermalloch,
branch is deduced by Poujilas from Hugh, a younger son of
Sir John Moncricff, of that illc, and Beatrix Forman,
ah-eady referred to, and by Playfair from George, uncle of
the game Sir John, whose great-grandson, William, is said
to have conveyed his estate to a distant relalivo, in the
person of Sir John Moncrieff, 5f,h Bart, of the creation of
1G26, to be afterwards mentioned, and father of Sir Hugh,
6th Bart., referred to by Douglas. William, the eldest son,
s. his grandtather in the estate of Monci-icff, and by his
wife, Ann, dau. of Robert Moray, of Abercairiiy, was
father of Sir John Moncrieff, of that ilk, created a baronet
in 1626. This Sir John, who d. in 1650, had by his second
wife Lady Slary Murray, dau. of William, 2nd Earl of
TuUibardine, three sons, John, David, and James, succes-
sively 2nd, 3rd, and 4tli Barts., who all d. unm. On the
death of Sir James, 4th Bart., such of the family papers as
were in his hands were (according to Playfair) delivered, by
his direction, to his cousin. Sir John, 5th Bart., son of Sir
Hugh, younger brother of Sir John, 1st Bart., which Hugh,
according to Douglas, d. without issue. Sir John appears
to have been s. in the title by his son, Sir Hugh, 6lh Bart.,
who d. unm. about the year 1744 ; and some years after-
wards the baronetcy was assumed by William Moncrieff,
ministfr of Blackford, great-great-grandson (according to
Playfair) of Archibald Moncrieff. minister at Abernethy,
already referred to as a supposed younger son of William
Moncrieff, of that ilk, and Jean Oliphant. Third in descent
from the minister of Blackford, 7th Bart., was Rev. Sir
Henry Wellwood Monciieff, 10th Bart, of the creation of
2826, and elder brother of the Right Hon. James Moncrieff,
Lord Jubtice Clerk, who was created a Baronet in 1871, and
raised to the Peerage, under the title of Baron Moncrieff, in

J^itmilg of fuuiillo attb €aIfHrg«.

of that ilk, by his wife, Margaret Murray, of Balvaird, was the
first of the family of Kintillo, and m. Christian, dau. of Crich-
ton of Strathurd. lUs descendants can be clearly traced by
means of family papers in the hands of his existing represen-
tative and other authentic documents. Alexander was s. by
his son,

Matthew Monxrieff, " porfioner of Kintillo," whoni. Grizel

Mauld, and who appears to have been alive in 1647. Besides

other issue, he had three sons,

1671, as "Nonnunquam do Kintillo," was probably the

eldest, and appears to have had a son, Alexander, who

Hisloni of the Church O' Scotland. He was 6. 1613; m.

of Tullibardine, and d. in 1688. His merits are set, forth in
