daughter of Sir William Fairfax, of Steeton, Knight. According
to A. Wood, he was born at Thornton in Craven, and bred at
Oxford, where he became Fellow of Oriel college; but travelling
abroad, he became M. D. at Basil, and was incorporated at Ox-
ford in l6n5, as the English universities allowed a more universal
communication of honours with those on the Continent than is
usual at present. His family and i-ountry probably recommended
him to the illustrious Anne, Countess of Pembroke, whom he ap-
pears to have served in the doable capacity of agent and physi-
cian. By her recommendation probably he became physician in
ordinary to Queen Anne of Denmark, and afterwards to King
Charles I. from whom he received the honour of knighthood in
1(336. Lastly, he attained to the summit of medical honours, in
being appointed President of the College of Physicians. He died

of Thornton, his elder brother, died in his father's lifetime,

Nunnington, Knight, by whom he had Christopher Lister, Esq.
who died unmarried, having devised his estates to Thomas, second
son of Sir John Kaye, on condition of his assuming the name of
Lister, which he did, and dying also unmarried, devised it to his
eldest brother, Sir Arthur Kaye, and his issue male ; and failing
thereof, to his other brothers in succession, and their respective
male issue ; by which means the manor of Thornton devolved suc-
cessively upon Sir John Lister Kaye, and his son the next Baronet,
by whom it was bequeathed to the late Baronet.

IV.) and Joan, daughter of Sir William Calverly, married the

b His gfand-nephew, (says Whitaker) though perhaps not of equal emi-
nence in his profession, yet from his various publications, as well as prox-
imity to our own times, is more generally remembered.

Martin Lister was born in, or about the year 1638, and educated under
the eye of his uncle, by whom hevvas placed in St. John's college, Cambridge,
and soon after his death took the degree of A. B, The exami-le and instruc-
tions of a court physician redeemed him from the disloyalty of his family,
and he met with an early reward of his fidelity, being appointed fellow of the
college by royal mandate, in the year of the restoration. Having taken his
last degree in arts, he devoted himself to the study of physic, and about i668f
travelled into France. On his return from that country, he settled at York,
and practised with great success. His excursions in the way of his profession
afforded him many opportunities of gratifying his propensity towards the
study of natural history and antiquities ; in the former of which he became
so eminent as to be elected F. R. S. an honour not conferred at that time but
on men who had given some proofs of their proficiency in the science of
nature. It was probably a growing indisposition to motion, and a desire of
learned and liberal conversation, which induced him to remove to LondoHf
where in 1709, he was appointed physician inordinary to the Queen. He died
in February, 171 1-12, having published many works on medicine and natural
history ; but his reputation is built on the Synopsis Conchyliorum. He pur-
chased Carlton-Hall, where he occasionally resided before his removal to
London. Whitaker ^ ut supra, p. 99.

noble owner may congratulate himself on the possession of two residences
admirably adapted to the varieties of our climate ; for if an epicure in air and
weather, were permitted to make his own choice in Craven, he could scarcely
be better accommodated than by the warm and sheltered air of Stockbeck in
winter, and the keen and invigorating atmosphere of Malmater in its proper

LORD SEAFORTH. 593




MACKENZIE, LORD SEAFORTH.

Among the raany brave Scotsmen who signalized themselves for
the service of their country at the battle of the Largs in 1263,
there was a foreigner, one Colin, or Col in as Fitzgerald, son to
the Earl of Kildare, or Desmond, of the kingdom of Ireland,
whose courage and valour on that occasion was so singularly re-
markable, that King Alexander took him into his special protec-
tion, and was afterwards pleased to bestow upon him the lands
of Kintail in Rosshire, pro bono et Jideli servitio, tarn ifi hello
quam in pace ; and to be held by him in lileram haroniam, as
the original charter bears, dated from Kincardine, January 9th,
1266. ^

According to Dr. George Mackenzie, who has written a full
and elaborate history of this noble family, he married a dauc^hter
of Walter, Lord High Steward of Scotland, by whom he had a
son,

Kenneth, who succeeded him, and dying at his castle of
Island-Donan, was buried in the famous monastery of Icolmkill
in 1278.

His son, Kenneth, second Baron 9/ Kintail, married Morbae



a " Original charter of the lands of Kintail, by King Alexander III. to
this Colino Hybernio, is in the hands of the Earl of Seaforth, and was kindly
communicated to me by that noble Lord and excellent antiquary the Earl of
Cromarty, who wrote an essay on his own name and family of the Mac-
kenzies, which is in many hands in MS. The most exact copy I have seen
of these memoirs, is in the custody of Mr. John Mackenzie, of Delvin, who
very civilly gave me the perusal of it, and allowed me to take notes from it."

Kenneth, third Baron of Kintail, his successor, who in the
Gaelic (the language then used) was called Kenneth Mackenneth,
or the son of Kenneth. This in English came to be called Mac-
henny, or Macketizie, and from him all the Mackenzies in Scot-
land are descended. He was a great loyalist, and a firm friend of
King Robert Bruce, and behaved gallantly at the battle of Ban-
nochburn in 1314. He died 1328, having married Margaret,

great part owing : for which acceptable service he had a grant
from the crown, of the lands of Strachonnan, Stragarvie, and
several other of the Earl's lands, by a charter under the great
seal, September /th, 14/7. '^ By Agnes, his first wife, daughter
of Colin, Earl of Argyle, he had Sir Kenneth, his heir.
