Lineagre. — Tradition relates that, in the year 1308,
William Bv.nsie took the castle of Linlithgow from the Eng-
lish, by concealing himself and seven sons in a waggon of hay,
which was stopped in the threshold, when the porter and those
with him were instantly slain, and a large party of friends,
lying in ambush, were admitted, and the garrison put to the
sword. The castle was delivered (goes on the tradition) by its
captor to King Robert Bruce, who rewarded him with a gilt
of lands, and assigned to the family, to perpetuate the memory
of this hardy adventure, an augmentation of a loaded waggon
to their armorial bearings.

Catherine Mary, dau. of John Arthur Edward
Herbert, Esq. of Llanarth Court, co. Monmouth,

Henry, 6. 1876.

Liineag'e. — xVbout the middle of the 17th century, JAsrES
Monteith (the of the present
Joseph Monteith, Esq.) lived on his small estate in the district
of Aberfoyle, co. Perth. Towards its close, he drew upon him-
self the determined hostility of Rob Roy by a steady refusal to
pay to that predatory hero Black Mail, or the annual tribute
wliich he levied upon all within his reach, and which none but
men much more powerful than the small Aberfoyle laird ever
succeeded in resisting. Three several times, in revenge for
this resistance to what he almost considered his established
right, Rob severely pillaged and plundered Mr. Monteith's
property. Determined not to yield, and yet unable to face a
continuation of such loss, Mr. Monteith withdrew to Glasgow,
just then rising into the focus of energy and enterprise. The
emigrant from the Highland hills, his one son, and three daus.,
are still, after the lapse of more than 150 years, commemo-
rated in Glasgow by a rhymic description, in which a few
pietensions, perhaps inconsistent with their pecuniary diffi-
culties, may be alluded to, and in which the latter figure as —
" Jenny wi' the ruffles,
Maggie wi* the buckles.
And Nannie wi' the cork-heeled shoon."
James Monteith d. without realizing his design, and only
gradually, though quickly, were matured under his successors
those vast concerns with which, throughout ScotlancJ, the
name of the family is associated. His grandson, James Mon-
teith, was early in such a position as to enable him to master
the first opening of the cotton trade, and he is in fact justly
considered the founder of some branches of the cotton trade in
Scotland. He was father of

Henry Monteith, Esq., M.P. for Lanark, who purchased
the estate of Carstairs from the Fullerton family. He hi. 1st,
Christina Cameron, of the clan Cameron, of Lochiel, and
2iidly, Miss Fullerton. By the former he was father of
