Scott, of Harden, Raebum's brother, and
Makdougal, of Makerstoun, his brother-in-
law, adopted the rough methods used in
that time to cure heresy ; Raeburn and his



wife were imprisoned in the gaols of Edin-
burgh and Jedburgh, their children were
forcibly taken from them and appointed to
be educated at Glasgow, at a distance from
their parents, and by means of a considerable
annuity appointed to be paid out of Rae-
burn's estate. (See Sharpe's Life of Kirk-
ton, prefixed to his history of the Kirk of
Scotland.) Nevertheless Walter, of Rae-
burn, died possessed of the lands of Eilrig,
Raeburn, Muidlew, Yetbyre, and others in
Dumfriesshire, and a valuable property
around Lessuden, co. Roxburgh, where he
built a commodious mansion-house; he d.
soon after the revolution, leaving two sons
and a da.; from his eldest son, William, is
lineally descended the present Walter Scott,
of Raeburn.

Walter, second son of the 1st laird of
Raeburn, was a man of considerable classical
learning, and an intimate friend of the ce-
lebrated dr. Pitcairn. He made a vow to
wear his beard unshared until the Stuarts
were restored to the throne, whence he ob-
tained the surname of Bearded Watt. His
fortune (originally small, as the 2d son of
a cadet) was much impaired by the part he
took in politics; by his wife, Jean Camp-
bell, da. of Campbell, esq., of Silver-

craigs, he had three sons, 1. Walter, m.
and had issue a son, Walter, who d. in
America, sine prole; 2. Robert; 3. William,
who had several sons, of whom the eldest,
James Scott, of Prince of Wales Island,
was well known asoneof the most intelligent
and active merchants in India.

Robert, 2d son of Bearded Watt, was
bred to the sea, but being shipwrecked in
his first voyage, betook himself to agricul-
ture, and obtained valuable leases from his
kinsmen, the lairds of Harden and of Rae-
burn, the last of whom became his son-in-
law. He was m. to Barbara Haliburton, da.
of Thomas Haliburton, of New Mains, now
called Dryburgh Abbey, the representative
of the ancient and honourable family of
Merton, which representation, by the death
of all the children of Thomas Haliburton
without issue, devolved upon Walter Scott,
eldest son of the said Barbara Scott and
Thomas Haliburton. (See a little unpub-
lished genealogical tract, entitled. Memorials
of the Haliburtmis.)

Robert Scott resided upon Sandyknow,
a farm belonging to Harden, and being a
very shrewd and mtelligent man, is believed
to have been the first person in Roxlburgh-
shire who ever acquired a considerable for-
tune by his skill m agriculture; he left five
sons and four das., of whom it is only ne-
cessary to mention the sons, namely,

1. Walter, of whom presently.

2. Thomas, who followed his father's pro-
fession, and d. in 1822, at the advanced age
of !)I and upwards; he was twice m. ; 1st,
to Barbara, da. of Walter Scott, of Rae-
burn, his cousin ; 2dly, to miss Rutherford,
of Knowsouth.

3. Robert Scott, of Rosebank, a capt.
in the sea service of the East India Com-
pany, unm.

4. John, also bred to the sea, but d. in
consequence of an injury received in the
course of his duty, it7>m.

Walter Scott, eldest son of Robert
Scott, of Sandyknow, was h. 11 May 1729.
He was bred a writer to the signet, or con-
veyancer, and was eminent for his general
worth and respectability, as well as for his
skill in his profession. He m, Anne Ruther-

ford, da. of John Rutherford, M.D., son of
the rev. John Rutherford, (whose father
was John Rutherford,) of Grundisnook, a
cadet of the Rutherfords of Hunthill. Dr.
Rutherford was professor of medicine in the
university of Edinburgh, and one of the
four pupils of the celebrated Boerhaave, by
whom the great medical school in that city
was founded. Anne was his da. by his first
wife, Anne Swinton, da. of sir John Swin-
ton, of that ilk. Walter Scott had a very
numerous family, extending to twelve child-
ren, but we only notice such as survived
childhood, viz.,

1. Robert, bred in the navy, d. in India,

2. John, late major 78th regiment, d, unm.

3. Sir Walter, created a bart.

4. Anne, d. unm,

5. Thomas, latepaymaster 71st regiment,

cate in 1792. He m. Margaret-Charlotte Car-
penter, sister of the late Charles Carpenter,
esq., commercial resident at Salem, 24 Dec.

he was appointed sheriff-depute of Selkirk-
shire, and in 1806, was made one of the
principal clerks of session. Having been
distinguished in consequence of his literary
productions, his late Majesty, then Prince
Regent, was pleased to confer on the said
Walter Scott the rank of bart., in the year
1820, being the first title of distinction be-
stowed after his royal highness had obtained
the unlimited exercise of the royal preroga-
tive, and the only degree of bart. conferred
in the course of that year. Sir Walter Scott,
besides an infant child which d. soon after
