MORAY, JAMES, esq. of Abercairny, in the county of Perth, a justice of the
peace and deputy-lieutenant for that shire, formerly captain of the 15th Dragoons,
and afterwards lieutenant-colonel of the Perthshire Local Militia, espoused Elizabeth,
daughter of General Sir William Erskine, bart. of Torrie. He succeeded to the estates
at the decease of his father in 1810.


The great house of Moray, or Murray,
whose acknowledged chieftainship is now
vested in Abercairny, derives from

Freskine, a Fleming, who settled in
Scotland during the reign of David I., and
acquired from that monarch the lands of
Strathbrock, in the county of Linlithgow.
" Soon after the insurrection of the Moray-
men in 1130," says Chalmers, " Freskine,
who probably contributed by his skill and
bravery to the subduement of those ancient
people, obtained from the same prince some
of the most fertile districts of the Lowlands
of Moray," including Duffies, Inshkiel,
Rosile, &c, and erected a fortalice at
Duffies, where he resided, and where the
massy ruins of the castle are still to be seen.
Freskine was s. in 1158, by his only son,

William de Moravia, as appears from
a charter, granted under the great seal, by
William the Lion, " Willielmo, filio Fres-
kini, scilicet terras quas Freskine, pater
suus, tenuit, tempore regis David avi mei."
He left two sons, namely,

William, his heir.

Hugh, who obtained from his father the
lands of Duffus. He had a son,
Walter, who is frequently mistaken
for Walter, the son of William. He
is witness to a charter in the chartu-
lary of Moray, in which there is
a donation made to the church of
Spynie, and is designed — " Domino
Waltero de Moravia, filio quondam
Hugonis de Moravia."

The elder son and heir,

William de Moravia, according to nu-
merous grants and other deeds, in the ar-
chives of the episcopal see of Moray, s. his
father in 1200, in those records he is de-
scribed " Willielmus Alius Willielmi filii
Friskini." He subsequently made a dona-
tion to the church of Spynie, as appears by
a charter in the chartulary of Moray, where-
in he states that " Hugone, fratre meo," is
a witness. He seems to have wedded the
daughter and heiress of David de Olifard,
justiciary of Loudoun, in the reign of Alex-
ander II., to have acquired by her the



lands of Bothwell, and to have had* a I
son and heir,

Walter de Moravia, who succeeded his
father in 1226, and was the first of this
family designed by the title of " Bothwell."
In a deed in the chartulary of Moray, this
Walter is stated to be the son of William,
and in a charter of confirmation granted by
Alexander II. anno 1248, and by another
deed, in 1253, it is evident that David de
Olifard was the successor of Walter de
Olifard, and the ancestor of Walter de Mo-
ravia, whicli two deeds are taken from the
chartularly of Glasgow, and are in the pos-
session of the family of Panmure.

Walter de Moravia wedded a daughter
of Duncan, earl of Fife, and had two sons,
William and Andrew, by the elder of

Sir William de Moravia, Dominus de
Bothwell, he was succeeded in 1284. He
died, however, without issue, in 1293, and
was s. by his brother,

Sir Andrew Moray, of Bothwell, who
is styled Sir William's son, by Crawfurd,
but erroneously, as appears from the last
clause in Sir Williams' mortification of the
church of Wallyston, to the see of Glasgow,
in which Andrew appends his seal to the
deed, as his brother's presumptive heir,
" Sigillum nostrum apposiumus," saith Sir
William, " et sigillum Domini Andreas
Moravia, fratris nostri, apponi procuravi-
mus." Sir Andrew Moray, who was joint
governor of the kingdom, distinguished
himself as the associate of Wallace, when
that illustrious patriot reared the standard
of national independence. He m. a daughter
of Sir John Cumin, Lord of Badenach, and
falling at the battle of Stirling, left issue,

i. Andrew (Sir), who succeeded at
Bothwell. He espoused the Lady
Christian Bruce, sister of King
Robert I. of Scotland, and had two

John, ) successively lords of
Thomas, i Bothwell. The elder
dying without issue, and the
younger, Thomas, leaving an
only daughter and heiress, Jean,
m. to Archibald, Lord of Gallo-
way, afterwards Earl of Douglas,
the representation of the family
devolved on the posterity of
William Moray, of Drumsar-
ii. William, of Drumsargard.

* Besides Walter, his heir, this William had
other sons, " who," continues Chalmers, " propo-
gated the name of Moray, by founding other
houses, one of which was the Murrays, ofTulli-
bardine, now represented by the duke of Athol."

The second son,

Sir William Moray, obtained the barony
of Drumsargard, from his uncle, Sir Wil-
liam, and we find him frequently designed
by that title, in his father's lifetime. In
1290, his name appears amongst the signa-
tures of a great portion of the Scottish
nobles, affixed to a letter to Edward I.
concerning a marriage between Queen
Margaret of Scotland, and Prince Edward
of England, and in 1296, he took the oath
of fealty to the English monarch. Sir
William died in about four years after, and
was s. by his son,

Sir John Moray, designed in many
authentic writs, Dominus de Drumsargard,
a personage of great influence at the period
in which he lived. He wedded in 1299,
the Lady Mary, only daughter of Malise,
sixth earl of Strathern, by whom he ac-
quired the lands of Abercairny, Ogilvie,
&c. and had issue,

Maurice (Sir,) ) successive pro-
Alexander (Sir), S prietors.
Walter, to whom his brother, Sir Alex-
ander, gave the lands of Drumsar-
gard, by charter under the great seal
dated 13th November, 1375. He
was ancestor of the Morays, of
Ogilface, a family now extinct.

Sir John Moray dying in the early part of
the fourteenth century, was s. by his eldest

Sir Maurice Moray, of Drumsargard,
a bold and steady adherent of David
Bruce, who obtained in 1343, from that
monarch, a charter of the Earldom of
Strathern, to himself and the heirs male
of his body. His lordship married a daugh-
ter of Thomas Randolph, earl of Moray,
but had no issue. Accompanying King
David on his unfortunate expedition into
England, the earl was slain at the battle of
Durham in 1346, when the title of Stra-
thern reverted to the crown, while the
estates and representation of the family
devolved on his brother,

Sir Alexander Moray, who was re-
turned heir to his paternal inheritance in
1349. In 1366, at the decease of Thomas,
last lord of Bothwell, without male issue,
Sir Alexander claimed as next heir male,
the succession to his estates, but the lord of
Galloway having wedded, as before stated,
the daughter and heiress of the deceased
lord of Bothwell, had obtained full posses-
sion. " The power of the Douglasses," says
the Baronage, " being then very great, Sir
Alexander found it impossible for him to
get justice in the ordinary courts of Judica-
ture : Yea, their influence was then so
universal that he could not get lawyers to
plead his cause. This is fully instructed
by the following contract ; Sir Alexander



having married Lady Janet, daughter of
William Earl of Ross, sister of Queen Eu-
pham, and relict of the baron of Monymusk,
the queen and her son, David, Prince Pala-
tine of Strathern, being the parties con-
tractors, became bound to use their best
endeavours to get justice doue him in relation
to the lordships of Bothwell, and to procure
him council and lawyers to plead his cause."
The contract is dated at Perth, 20th Novem-
ber, 1375. " This curious paper," continues
Sir Robert Douglas, " which is very ho-
nourable to the family, being narrated at
full length in Crawfurd's Peerage, page 42,
to that we refer our readers. But the Lord
Galloway having taken every measure to
secure himself in that possession, his interest
with the king being very great, and the
authority and power of the Douglasses being
considerable over the whole kingdom ; it
never was in Sir Alexander's power to
recover his just right to the lordship of
Bothwell, and being determined to live no
longer in that part of the country, where
he thought he had been so ill used, he gave
the lands and barony of Drumsargard to
his brother, Walter, and retired to Perth-
shire, where he had an opulent fortune."

Sir Alexander Moray being subsequently
implicated in the slaughter of one Spalding,
was necessitated to plead the privilege of
the clan Macduff,* which he obtained ac-
cordingly. He was s. at his decease by his

Sir Andrew Moray, of Ogilvy and
Abercairny, on whom King James II. of
Scotland, conferred the honour of knight-
hood. He m. a daughter of Sir Humphrey
Cunningham, of Glengarnock, an ancient
Ayrshire family, by whom he left at his
demise, temp. James III. (with two daugh-
ters, the elder m. to Sir Maurice Drurn-
mond, of Concraig, and the younger to

* One of the immunities which Malcolm Can-
more conferred on Macduff, Thane of Fife, was,
" that if he or any of kindred committed slaughter
of suddenty, they should have a peculiar sanc-
tuary, and obtain remission on payment of an
atonement in money." The descent of Sir Alex-
ander Moray, from the Macduffs, was thus
traced :

Duncan, Earl of Fife, descendant and repre-
sentative of Macduff, Thane of Fife.
