rood was founded, and Sir Gregan's arms
placed therein.

In 1170 a Dominus Galfredus de Craw-
fird, frequently occurs among the Magna-
tes Scotiae, as a witness to the charters of
his sovereign. He wedded — sister of John
le Scott, earl of Chester, and daughter of
David, earl of Huntingdon, second son of
David I. of Scotland, by his Queen Maud,
daughter of Valdosius, earl of Northumber-
land, and Judith, niece of William the
Conqueror. From this Galfred sprang

Sir John Crawfurd, of Crawfurd, who

ruins of Crawfurd Castle, has, for many centuries,

been called Norman GUI.

died in 1248, and was buried in Melrose
Abbey, leaving two daughters, his co-heirs,
who conveyed the greater portion of the
Crawfurd estates to the families of their
husbands, Douglas, ancestor of the dukes
of Douglas, and Lindsay, ancestor of the
earls of Crawfurd and Lindsay. The terri-
tory thus divided was afterwards called
Crawfurd Lindsay, and Crawfurd Douglas.
But a third portion subsequently, for dis-
tinction, denominated Crawfurd John Ba-
rony, remained in the possession of John
Crawfurd, the male representative of Sir
John. From Galfred de Crawfurd also

Sir Reginald de Crawfurd, a personage
of great eminence, who espoused, about the
year 1200, the heiress of the extensive
barony of Loudoun, in Ayrshire (which after-
wards gave the title of earl to its possessors)
and he became the first vicecomes or lord
lieutenant of the county, the office being
made hereditary in his family. The fifth in
descent from this Sir Reginald, was another

Sir Reginald Crawfurd, knt. of Lou-,
doun, vicecomes de Air, one of the most
patriotic upholders of the freedom of Scot-
land,against the English monarch, Edward I:
he lost his life in the service of his country,
with his great kinsman, Sir William Wal-
lace,* leaving an only daughter and heiress,

Sir Reginald dying thus without male issue,

the representation of the house of Craw-

furd reverted to his cousin,

Hugh Crawfurd, second son of Sir Re-
ginald Crawfurd, of Loudoun, who was
treacherously murdered at Ayr in 1297.
This Hugh, who appears to have inherited
from Loudoun the lands of Monoch, of
which his grandfather had a charter in
1226, and also Crosby, near Kilbride, an
ancient tenure of Loudoun, was s. at his
decease, by his son,

Reginald Crawfurd, of Crosby, who
obtained in 1320 a grant of the lands of
Auchinamf.s, in Renfrewshire, for his ser-
vices to Robert Bruce, as well as an aug-
mentation to his arms of two lances in sal-
tire, commemorative of his exploits at Bah-
nockburn. To him succeeded his son,

Reginald Crawfurd, of Auchinames*
and Crosby, whose name appears prefixed
as a witness to a charter by Robert, the
high steward, in 1358. His son and suc-

came the designation of the family, though in a
different county and a less ancient estate.

t Crawfurd, the eminent historian and gene-
alogist, deduces the Crawfurds of Kilbirnie from
a younger brother of this Thomas,

John Crawfurd, who was direct ancestor of

Malcolm Crawfurd, of Greenock, who es-
poused Marjory, daughter and sole heiress of John
Barclay, of Kilbirnie, a branch of the ancient
house of Barclay of Ardrossan. From this mar-
riage descended

John Crawfurd, of Kilbirnie, who succeeded
to that estate in 1622. He m. Mary, daughter of
James, Earl of Glencairn, and, about the year
1627, rebuilt the house of Kilbirnie, in a style of
feudal magnificence. He was s. by his eldest

Sir John Crawfurd, knt. of Kilbirnie, who
left by his second wife, Magdalene, daughter of
J 3rd Carnegie, two daughters,

Ann, m. to Sir Archibald Stewart, of Black-
Margaret, who wedded the Hon. Patrick
Lindsay, second son of John, fourteenth
Earl of Crawfurd, and first Earl of Lind-
Sir John Crawfurd having settled the estate of
Kilbirnie on the issue of the marriage of his
daughter Margaret, it eventually devolved to her
eldest son,

mentioned by Crawfurd, in his History of
Renfrewshire, in which he relates the sub-
stance of a mortification to the church of
Kilbarchan, dated 1401, for a monk to say
mass for the salvation of his soul, and his
wife's, and his father's, and mother's, and
for the soul of Reginald Crawfurd, his
grandfather. He wedded the daughter and
heiress of Malcolm Galbraith, and was s.
by his son,

Archibald Crawfurd, of Auchinames,
who m. Margaret, daughter and co-heiress
of Sir William Douglas, of Peircetoun, and
had (with a younger child, Thomas, ancestor
of the Crawfurds of Thirdpart) a son and

Robert Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
wedded, first, — , daughter of Archibald,
Earl of Angus ; and secondly, a daughter
of Houstoun, of Houstoun. He was s. at
his decease by his eldest son,

Robert Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who,
in 1488, acted as arbiter between the abbot
and convent of Paisley, and the burgh of
Renfrew. This gentleman accompanying
his sovereign, James IV. to the battle of

John Lindsay, esq. who assumed, upon be-
coming of " Kilbirnie," the surname and arms of
Crawfurd. In 1693, he was elected M.P. for
Ayrshire, and again in the reign of Queen Anne.
In 170.5, he was elevated to the peerage as Vis-
count Garnock. His lordship was s. by his eldest

Patrick Crawfurd, second Viscount Garnock,
who died in 173.5, and was s. by his eldest son,

Patrick Crawfurd, third Viscount Garnock,
who died unmarried, and was s. by his brother,

George Crawfurd, fourth Viscount Garnock,
who inherited, on the death of the celebrated
John, Earl of Crawfurd and Lindsay, the estates
and honors of that family. His lordship to. in
1755, Jean, eldest daughter and heiress of Robert
Hamilton, esq. of Bourtreehill, and dying in 1781
left issue,

George, who s. as twentieth Earl of Craw-
furd, and fifth Viscount Garnock. His
lordship, who was lord-lieutenant of Fife-
shire, died unmarried in 1808, and was s.
by his sister, Lady Mary Lindsay Craw-

for the barony and estates of the great family of
Crawfurd and Lindsay ; for a full account of
which claim, and an able refutation of its pre-
tensions, see " An Examination of the Claim oi

Flodden, was there slain in 1513, and was
s. by his eldest son,

James Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
obtained from his father in 1498, a charter
of Crosby and Monoch. To him succeeded
his son,

Thomas Crawfurd, of Auchinames, liv-
ing in 1535. This laird married Marion,
daughter of Montgomery, of Hazlehead, by
whom he had three sons, successive Lords
of Auchinames, by the eldest of whom,

John Crawfurd, of Auchinames, he was
succeeded at his decease. This gentleman
being slain at the battle of Pinkie in 1547,
and dying without issue, the estates de-
volved on his next brother,

William Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
wedded Annabel, daughter of Chalmers of
Gadgirth, and had one son,

James, who m. the Lady Elizabeth
Cunningham, daughter of William,
sixth Earl of Glencairn, by a daugh-
ter of Gordon of Lochinvar, and pre-
deceasing his father, left an only

Jane, on whom he settled the
lands of Crosby. This lady
wedded, about the year 1606,
Patrick Crawfurd, of Auchi-
names, and thus the ancient
estates of the family were re-
William Crawfurd died in 1582, when the
barony of Auchinames, according probably
to the tenure on which it was held, passed
to his brother,

Patrick Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
m. a daughter of John Frazer, third laird
of Knock (by Margaret, his wife, only child
and heiress of Sir John Stuart, of Glender-
ston, fourth son of John, first Earl of Len-
nox, grandson of the celebrated Sir John
Stuart, Count Devereux, field-marshal of
France), and had a son and successor,

William Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
wedded, in 1587, a daughter of Sir Patrick
Houstoun, of that Ilk, and was s. by his

Patrick Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
espoused, in 1606, Jane Crawfurd, heiress
of Crosby, and thus again united the ancient
estates of Crosby and Auchinames. He had

William, his heir.

James, whose issue is extinct.

Robert, of Nethennains,who continued

the family.
Hugh, minister of Cumnock, father of

Hugh Crawfurd, of Gride.

Elizabeth, m. to Robert Hunter, of
Auchinames was s. by his eldest son,

William Crawfurd, of Auchinames, who
was infeft in 1649. He m. Anna, daughter
of Sir Coll Lamont, of Inneryne, and had,
with several daughters, a son and heir,

Archibald Crawfurd, of Auchinames,
Crosby, &c. the sixteenth baron or chief
of this family descended from Loudoun in
a direct male line. He m. a daughter of Por-
terfield, of that Ilk, and had a son,

William, who m. Helen, daughter of
Sir Thomas Burnet, of Crimond, and
dying vita patris left an only daugh-
ter, who wedded Patrick Edmonston,
of Newton, and had several children.
The laird leaving no male issue, and having
feued out and otherwise disposed of the
lands of Auchinames, the superiority of that
estate, together with the lands of Crosby in
Cunninghame, was purchased by Patrick
Craufurd, of Drnmsoy, a descendant of the
Craufurds of Kerse, who had married Jane,
the second daughter of Archibald of Au-
chinames. Hence Drumsoy is styled of
Auchinames, as having the superiority.
Crosby, similarly acquired, is still in pos-
session of his descendant, John Craufurd.
Archibald Crawfurd leaving no male issue,
the representation of the family reverted to
his uncle,

Robert Crawfurd, designed by Nisbet,
" Captain Robert Crawfurd, of Nether-
mains ;" and that the Nethermains so al-
luded to, was the Nethermains of Kilwin-
ning, whence sprang the Crawfurds of New-
field, is sufficiently attested by the will of
Patrick Crawfurd, of Auchinames, lately
discovered among the records of the Com-
missary Court of Glasgow. This testament
bears date at Crosby, parish of Largs, the
xii day of December, 1648, and in it are
enumerated his children by name; it is
" witnessed by William Craufurd, younger,
of Auchinames, my son ; Robert Hunter,
of Hunterston, my son-in-law ; and Robert
Crawfurd, of Nay r mains, also my lawful
son," and written by his son James, who
was bred to the bar.*

Robert Crawfurd married Christian, dau.
and co-heiress of Robert Brown, of Nether-
mains and Burrowlands ; which latter estate
was conveyed by the younger sister to her
husband, Alexander Blair, of Gifibrdland.
He died in 1678, leaving three sons,

who had an only daughter Agnes, who
wedded in 1709, John Boyd, esq. of Crane-
berry Moss, and appears to have alienated
Nethermains to the family of Glasgow.

He was second in command at the capture
of Beechigar, a strong hill fort on the
Ganges, and was left in command of that
place with a garrison of 2000 men. Return-

of Newfield, and wedded, in two years after

This gentleman inheriting the estates of the Carews, assumed the additional sur-
name and arms of that family. He is a member of his Majesty's most honorable
privy council, and was under secretary of state for the Home Department in the Ad-

This is a younger branch of one of the
most ancient and illustrious families in the
west of England. The first of the name that
resided at Anthony, was
