EDMONSTONE, of Duntreath, co. Stirling.

20 May 1774.

Sir ARCHIBALD EDMONSTONE, Baronet, born 12 March 1795,
succeeded his father, sir Charles, 1 April 1821 ; married, 10 Oct. 1832,
Emma, da. of Randle Wilbraham, of Rode Hall, co. Chester, esq., niece of

lord Skelmersdale, and has issue, 1. a Da., 6. 17 July 1833 ; 2. a Da.,

b. IG Sept. 1834.

The family of Edmonstove originated
about the latter end of the 11th century.
Margaret, da. of Edgar Atheling, previous
to her marriage with king Malcolm Can-
more, A.D. 1070, was attended to Scotland
by (among several other foreigners, who
afterwards rose to distinction) Edmundus,
supposed to be a younger son of the counts
Egmont of Flanders. This person had a
grant of land in the county of Edinburgh,
to which he gave his name ; and as sur-
names began at this period to be generally
adopted, those lands called Edmundestoun
thus became the distinctive appellation of
the family.

Sir John Edmonstone, of Edmonstone,
appears to have been a person of great
possessions and considerable importance in
the reigns of king David II. and his suc-
cessors ; and his son of the same name was
employed during the reigns of Robert III.
and James I. as a joint commissioner on
three different occasions for arranging a
truce with England, 1407, &c. Sir John
m. the princess Isabel Stewart, da. of king
Robert II., and widow of James, earl of
Douglas and Marr, who was killed at the
battle of Otterburn. By this lady he had
two sons, 1. sir David, who succeeded
him; 2. Sir William Edmonstone, of Cul-
loden, and first of the family of Duntreath.
Sir David left two sons, of whom sir James,
the eldest, rf. without issue male, and
John, the younger, carried on the branch
of the Edmonstones of Ednam, who be-
came the chief of the family, and are but
lately extinct.

Sir William Edmonstone, of Culloden,
»!. his first cousin, the princess Mary Stew-
art, da. of king Robert III. This lady had
been three times previously married : 1st,
to George, earl of Angus, ancestor of the
Douglas family ; 2dly, to sir James Ken-
nedy, of Dunure, from whom the marquis
of Ailsa descends; 3dly, to sir William
Graham, of Kincardine, the immediate an-
cestor of the dukes of Montrose ; and 4thly,
" being still a young woman," to sir Wil-
liam Edmonstone, of Culloden, from which
marriage the present family are immediately
descended. King James II. conferred a
grant of the lands and barony of Duntreath
to sir William Edmonstone and the countess

of Angus, by a charter dated 1452. This,
which had been previously part of the for-
feited estate of the earls of Lennox, has ever
since remained the chief seat of the family.
