The surname of Clerk or Clark, a com-
mon one throughout Europe, is in Scotland
one of great antiquity ; and was prohably
assumed from some office bearing the de-
signation. It is a matter of notoriety, that
there were many free barons and men of
great possessions and power of the name
of Clark, in very early times. Sir James
Dalrymple cites a charter (prior to the year
1180) of King William of a donation to the
abbacy of Holyrood House, and among the
witnesses (who are all men of rank) are
Hugo Clericus regis ; Hugo Clericus cancel-
larii ; Johannes Clericus, &c. &c. In 1296,
Richardus Clerk submitted to Edward I.
and in the same year Benedict Clerk, a man
of rank and figure, was carried prisoner to
London for refusing to swear allegiance to
the English monarch ; and Mariota, his lady,
obtained a safe conduct to visit him in Eng-
land. At the battle of Durham, William
Clerk was taken prisoner, and remained in
captivity until released in 1357, with his
sovereign David II. The clan of Chattan,
and some of the best Highland families,
claim to be descended from the Clerks ;
and from charters under the great seal, it
appears that various families of this surname
have held extensive possessions from a very
remote era. The house we are about to
treat of, is supposed to be descended from
Alanus Clerk, a free baron of Perthshire,

one of the inquest on the service of Sir
Alexander Moray, of Abercairny, anno

Andrew Clark, esq. of Comries and
Bonnyside, m. Anne, eldest daughter of Ro-
bert Campbell, esq. of Ard Chattan, in Ar-

de-camp for many years to his cousin

tain Clark m. Mary Maclean, a cele-
brated beauty, second daughter of
Colonel Maclean, deputy governor of
the Tower of London, and dying in
1828, left an only daughter, Hannah.
Mr. Clark was s. at his decease by his elder
son, the present Robert Clarke, esq. of
Comrie Castle.

county of Chester, b. in 1808, s. to the estates upon the demise of his father,
5th March, 1828.


The Jodrells of Yeardsley, extinct in
the elder male line since 1750, but repre-
sented through females by the present Mr.

ley, in the county of Chester, as early as the
times of Edward III. or Richard II.

The first of the name on record was pos-
sessed of lands in Derbyshire, within the
manor of High Peak, 14th Edward I. His

William jAUDERELL,the immediate ances-
tor of the family, served as an archer under
Edward the lalarfe $rtltcr. in the French '
Wars. He had his pass for England, 29th
Edward III. and is supposed to have sub-
sequently become possessed of lands in the





township of Yeardsley-cum-Whaley, in
Cheshire. He m. in 1355, Agnes, daughter
of Robert de Bradshawe, and was father of

Roger Jaudrell, of Yeardsley, who was
for many years esquire of the body to King
Richard II. and for his good services in
that reign, had granted to him for life (17th
Richard II.) the town of Wheston, in Lei-
cestershire. The fifth in lineal descent

the county of Nottingham, and was s. by

in 1775, John Bower, esq. of Manchester,
who upon his marriage, assumed, by sign
manual, in compliance with the testamentary
injunction of his wife's grandfather, the sur-
name and arms of Jodrell. He afterwards
bought Henbury, where he settled in 1779,
and became possessed of the Taxal estate,
upon the demise of his brother, Foster Bow-
er, esq. barrister-at-law, and recorder of
Chester, by whom that property had been
purchased towards the close of the last cen-
tury. Mr. Bower-Jodrell had issue by his

SMYTHE, ROBERT, esq. of Methven Castle, in the county of Perth, b. 10th
February, 1773, m. first, 5th April, 1810, Mary, daughter of James To wnsend Oswald,
esq. of Dunnekier, in Fifeshire, and espoused, secondly, 6th February, 1817, Susan-
Renton, eldest daughter of Sir Alexander Muir Mackenzie, bart. of Delvine, but has
no issue. Mr. Smythe inherited the estates at the decease of his father, David Smythe,
titulary Lord Methven.


The surname of Smith is of great antiquity
in Scotland, and has at different times been
written Smyt, Smythe, and Smith. The
house of Smith, traditionally, owes its
origin to the C7<m Chatan, heing descended,
it is asserted, from Neil Cromb, third son
of Murdoch, of that clan, who flourished in
the time of William the Lion. The family,
of which we are about to treat, derives from

Thomas Smith, who, having applied his
talents to the study of physic, attained high
eminence in the medical profession, and
was appointed apothecary to King James III.
as appears by a charter bearing date 29th
January, 1477. He was father of

Patrick Smith, of Braco, in the county of
Perth, who lived temp. James IV. and was s.
by his son,

William Smith, of Braco, who, with the

Warkland, &c. from Patrick, Bishop of
Murray, perpetual commendator of Scoon.

man and his brother Andrew, being young
at their grandfather's decease, were placed
under the guardianship of George Graham,
then minister of Scoon, who, being subse-
quently consecrated bishop of Orkney, took
his pupils thither, where they both settled.
