EDITORIAL NOTE

This, the concluding volume of the Scots Peerage, com-
pletes a work, the first volume of M'hich was published in
1904. It contains, in the first place, a long list of addenda
et corrigenda: the latter may, it is hoped, serve to put
right some at all events of the actual errors which have
occurred in the work ; the former, and they are the larger
class of the two, contain a good deal of information which
has come to light since the publication of the several
articles. The editor has to thank many kind correspondents
and contributors for information supplied, and especially he
may name his friends Mr. J. Maitland Thomson, LL.D., and
Ool. the Hon. E,. B. Boyle, both of whom have been unremit-
ting in their helpful endeavours to increase the usefulness
and accuracy of the Peerage. Nobody is more aware of the
many shortcomings of this work than the editor himself,
but perhaps he may be allowed to claim that at all events
it is an advance on what has gone before. No doubt,
with increased facilities of investigation and the further
publication of national records and the contents of private
charter-chests, a future generation may be able to produce
a fuller and still more accurate account of individual
families, but it is hardly probable that a history of the
Scottish Peerage on a scale similar to that of the present
work will be attempted lor many years to come.

The full and elaborate Index, with which the greater part
of this volume is occupied, is the work of Mrs. Alexander
Stuart, who has brought towards its completion an enthu-
siasm, energy, and ability which are beyond all praise.
Not only does it contain a list of between forty and fifty
thousand names, but each person is definitely described by
the mention of his or her title, occupation, or relationship.
In itself, indeed, the Index forms a valuable compendium



vi EDITORIAL NOTE

of Scottish family history, which will be found useful even
without reference to the pages of the Peerage. But it
goes without saying that such an Index doubles the useful-
ness of a work like the present. It is not often that an
editor meets with a compiler who is so fully in accord with
him as to the standard to be aimed at in an index, and who
is so capable of carrying it to a successful conclusion. It
is diflacult for the editor adequately to express the obliga-
tions he is under to Mrs. Stuart for her services in this
matter.

The Index has been compiled on the following prin-
ciples : —

1. A Peerage title is given, in capitals, with its holders

in alphabetical order, and their respective wives.

2. If the name of the title is changed, e.g. from Lyon to

Glamis, it is given a separate heading.

3. The surname of the holder of a Peerage title is given

in capitals with the various Peerages, in alpha-
betical order, pertaining to it.

4. After Peers, owners of lands are given in alphabetical

order; those of the same Christian name are put
in chronological order.

5. Ordinary persons then come in alphabetical order and

according to the paging in the volumes.

6. Women are given under their maiden names: if

married, as ' wife of ' ; if unmarried as ' dau.

of .'

7. As a rule, children who died in infancy are not in-

serted.
In taking leave of a task which has been a congenial if a
somewhat strenuous one for the last twelve years, the editor
has to express his appreciation of the amicable relations
which have subsisted between him and his contributors
(some now, alas, beyond the reach of acknowledgments).
It is a pleasure to have worked with such colleagues.
