Larbert. ,5

Whatever may be thought of the justice of this case, a
strong light is thrown on the powers of a Town Council
in 1574.

The teind sheaves and parsonage teinds of the lands of
Larbert appear to have belonged to the Livingstones of
Dunipace — then to Sir Robert Spottiswoode (See under
Dunipace), as on nth November, 1644, Sir Robert Spottiswoode
and Mr. Alexander Livingstone, advocate, resign these in favour
of John Burne, who received a Crown charter on tliat date.'
This John Burne (2) is designed in the charter eldest son of
John Burne (i), portioner of Larbert. The Burnes appear to
have possessed their half of the lands before 1632, and held
them in feu of the Earl of Callendar. John Burne (2) had a
precept of clare constat for infefting him as heir of his father on
iSth March, 1653, the sasine thereon being dated 24th April."
John Burne (2) had a brother, Robert, who was admitted a
burgess of Stirling in 1644 — he was Bailie at intervals between
1656 and 1664, and Dean of Guild 1658 to 1659. Robert
Burn married Margaret Marshall, who, after his death, became
the third wife of David Forrester of Denovan, sometime Provost
of Stirling. He died before June 22nd, 1665, when John
Burne, portioner of Larbert, was rctoured heir to him, and
Robert is designed as his brother immediately junior; he also
had a brother Thomas."

John Burne (2) was admitted a burgess neighbour and
maltman of Stirling, nth October, 1664.* He died about

families of this name I have embodied some of them in the Appendix.

the year 1665. The following lines in Larbert Churchyard
most probably refer to him : —

"Here lies interred within this urn,
The corpse of honest good John Burn :
Who was the eight John of that name,
He hved with love and died with fame.
In changing tymes, saddest disaster,
True to his king, lord, and master !
Kind to his kindred, neighbour, friend.
Who's good lyfe had an happie end.
His soul to God ha did beqeath,
His dust to lie this stone hentath."— Anno 1665.

He left a daughter, Agnes, and a son, John, who succeeded
him.' John Burne (3) who married Jane Willison, daughter
of John Willison, portioner of Corntoun, by his wife Helen
Paterson," died before 4th January, 1699, and left a son who
succeeded him, also John (4), who was specially retoured heir to
his grandfather, 17th October, 171 1. This laird, with consent of
his mother, Jane Willison, disposed of his portion of the lands of
Larbert on 31st August, 171 5, to Mrs. Janet Cunninghame, Lady
Dunipace. She was the wife first of George Foulis Primrose of
Dunipace (by whom she was mother of Sir Archibald Primrose
of Dunipace), and afterwards of William Innes, Writer to
the Signet.'' She disposed of her lands of Larbert with
consent of her husband, William Innes, to Alexander Chalmers,
accountant in the Excise Office, Edinburgh, 23rd October, 1739,
and there is an instrument of resignation on 9th April, 1745.''

Alexander Chalmers had sasine of these lands, ist June,
1745, and by purchasing the other half of the estate from
William Mackie in 1751, was now the owner of the whole
estate of Larbert. He was succeeded by his son, Robert
Chalmers, who was also accountant in the Excise Office,
his retour being dated i6th December, 1760. In 1768, Robert
Chalmers had a charter of confirmation and precept of clare
constat granted by James, Earl of Errol, confirming the
disposition of Mackie's half of Larbert. The corn mills,
mill-lades, &c., were still to be holden in feu of the Earl.
On loth April, 1782, Robert Chalmers disposed of his lands
to William Ferguson of Raith, in the County of Fife (See
Burke's " Landed Gentry "), who had sasine 14th June of
that year.^ He only retained the estate for a few years, as
he sold it to Thomas Milles Riddell, younger of Ardna-
murchan, in February, 1789.-

The new laird was the eldest son of Sir James Riddell,
Bart, LL.D., of Ardnamurchan and Sunart, who was created
a baronet, 2nd September, 1778. Sir James, the first baronet,
was great-grandson of James Riddell of Kinglas, Linlithgow-
shire, who was much in the confidence of Cromwell and
General Monk during the civil wars. Cromwell lodged with
him in his house at Leith, and afterwards carried on a corre-
spondence with him. The minister of South Leith, having
remembered King Charles I. in his prayers, the church was,
by General Monk's order, turned into a stable, and the
parishioners prevented from worshipping there. Previous to
Monk's return to England, he asked Mr. Riddell if there was
anything whereby he could be serviceable to him or his family.

» Writs of Larbert.
' Ibid.

He replied that the only favour he could show him was that
he would restore their church to the parishioners of South
Leith, and allow them their former liberty of meeting in it for
divine service. Monk not only granted his request, but ordered
a new roof to be put upon the church at his own expense. In
return the inhabitants conferred on Mr. Riddell a large space
in the body of the church for a seat for his family.^ James
Riddell's wife was Elizabeth Foulis, sister to Sir John Foulis,
Baronet of Ravelston, whose family inherited the neighbouring
estate of Dunipace. (See under Dunipace.)

Thomas Milles Riddell, of Larbert, married Margaret,
daughter of Colonel Dugald Campbell. He died on 17th July,
1796, during the lifetime of his father, leaving a son, James
Milles Riddell of Larbert, who had a sasine of Larbert, nth
May, 1798. James Milles Riddell became second baronet on
the death of his grandfather, 2nd November, 1797. Sir James
was born 3rd June, 1787, and was educated at Christ Church,
Oxford, and was made D.C.L. He married in 1822, Mary,
daughter of Sir Richard Brooke, fifth baronet of Norton, and
was father of the third baronet. (See Burke's " Peerage.")

Sir James Riddell sold the estate to Sir Gilbert Stirling,
Bart, in 1821.' He was the eldest son of Sir James Stirling,
Baronet, who had been Lord Provost of Edinburgh. In early
life Sir James went to the West Indies as clerk to Mr. Stirling of
Keir, and in a short time, through the influence of his employer,
he was appointed secretary to Sir Charles Balling, Governor of
Jamaica. Having acquired a considerable fortune, he returned
to Edinburgh and became a partner in the banking house of
Mansfield, Ramsay, & Co." He married Miss Mansfield,

daughter of the principal partner. Sir James Stirling died
17th February, 1805. He had three sons and two daughters.
His elder daughter was married, in 1809, to Sir Thomas Living-
stone of West Quarter, Admiral of the " White " ; she died
in 183 1 without issue. His second daughter, Joan, died
unmarried. The two younger sons died in infancy. The eldest
son, Sir Gilbert Stirling, succeeded as second baronet in 1805,
being at that time a Lieutenant in the Coldstream Guards. He
did not marry, and on his death in 1843 the baronetcy became
extinct. His cousin, Sarah Mary Emily Robertson, daughter
of James Robertson, Captain of Engineers, Bengal Army, was
the heiress of Larbert. She was married to Francis Day Chalmer,
Major, 7th Dragoon Guards, descended from the ancient
family of Chalmer of Gadgirth.

Sir Gilbert Stirling had left his estate of Larbert and his
large personal fortune to be invested in land to be entailed on
the heirs of his cousin, Mrs. Chalmer. Her eldest son, Gilbert
Stirling Chalmer Stirling, born i8th January, 1843, inherited
the estate of Larbert. He was, in 1869, in the ist Regiment
of Horse Guards, when he petitioned for authority to acquire
the whole trust estate in fee simple.' He sold the estate in
May, 1876, to John Hendrie, of Calder Park, coalmaster in
Glasgow, who sold it in 1883 to the present proprietor, John
Hatt Noble Graham, merchant in Glasgow, who was created
a baronet in 1906. Sir John Graham is the eldest son of the
late John Graham of Skelmorlie Castle, Ayrshire."

The estate of Larbert since 1832 has included the lands of
Househill, which up to that date formed part of the estate of
Dunipace.'

The present mansion house of Larbert was built by Sir
Gilbert Stirling between the years 1822 and 1825. The
architect was the late David Hamilton, and the plan bears
the date of 1822.

daughterof Alexander Forrester of Chalmerstone, Carsbonny, &c.,
some time writer in Edinburgh, date 27th September, 1677.
(Stirling Burgh and Guildry Records.) He was made a baillie
in 1683-4, and treasurer 1 713- 15. (In the matriculation of arms in
1757 of his grandsons, William Burn of Coldoch, and Edward Burn
of Lisbon, he is designed James Burn of Quoiggs and Chalmer-
stone.) He had, besides other children, two sons, James and
Robert. James was made a burgess in 1701, and was baillie in
1722-3. He married Catherine Mayne, sister to Edward
Mayne of Powis, and was ancestor of the Burns of Coldoch, the
Burn-Murdochs of Gartincaber, Neuck and Greenyards, the Burn-
Callendars of Preston Hall, Midlothian and Westerton in the parish
of Bothkennar, Stirlingshire. (See Burke's "Landed Gentry,"
1906. The previous pedigrees printed have been incorrect.)
The younger son of James Burn and Anna Forrester was Robert,
a merchant burgess of Stirling, who, in 1 7 18, had a disposition
from his father of a tenement of land in Stirling. There is a
sasine in favour of Robert Burn and his wife, who is des'gned
Janet Dalgleish, second legitimate daughter of Robert Dalgleish
of Tunnygask (Fifeshire), 5th February, 1719.* (Stirling Register
of Sasines.) Robert Burn had four children, but the only one
who left descendants was his elder daughter, Marion Burn, bom

1 The Dalgleishes of Timnygask were an old Fifeshire family, who also owned the
small estate of Foulford, which descended to them by the marriage of James Dalgleish
of Tuimygask in 1615 to Katherine Wardlaw, eldest daughter of Nicolas Wardlaw of
Wester Luscar (descended from the Wardlaws of Torrie), and sister and heiress of
Henry Wardlaw of Foulford, Fifeshire. A genealogy of the Dalgleishes of Tunnygask
and Foulford was printed by their descendant, the Marquis de Ruvigny and Raineval.

STENHOUSE

(Parish of Larbcrt.)



THE lands and mansion house of Stenhouse are situated
about one mile and a quarter from Larbert station.
Messrs. M'Gibbon and Ross describe the house as
" originally on the L plan." It has been much modernised, but
still bears the panel with the date of its erection in 1622 by
Sir William Bruce of Stenhouse. The L plan for towers is
simply the old Norman keep with a wing added at one corner.'
The name about 1200 was Stanhous, which is old English for
Stone House. In some old deeds it is named Stanleigh, pre-
sumably the stone shelter. Mr. Johnston, in his " Place Names
of Stirlingshire," suggests that Arthur's Oon" may have been
the " Stan hus " which gave the name to the lands. The
barony of Stenhouse is a very old one.' There is another
barony of the same name in Fifeshire, and in early dates it is
rather difficult to distinguish them. There is a charter, circa
1200, of the Mill of Stanehous granted to Adam de Moreham.*

OLD PART OF STENHOUSE



Stenhouse. 1 5

As early as 1200 we find the name, John of Stanehous. In
1259 there is reference to the barony.' In 1264 Adam de
Stanus is a witness.^

On 4th June, 1362, Alexander More, son of Sir Adam
More, had a charter from David II. of the lands of Kythumbre,
in the barony of Stanhois, which belonged to Sir Godfrey de
Roos, which he gave to Alexander de Elphinstone, and which
Alexander de Elphinstone excambed with Alexander More."

BRUCE OF STENHOUSE.*

Before 26th December, 145 1, these lands were in the hands of
Alexander le Bruce de le Stanehouse." He was the son
of Sir Robert Bruce of Airth, descended from the Braces of
Clackmannan."

■> In treating of this family I have esarained all the Bruce pedigrees known to me.
In the late Mr. Hubert Eiddell's MS. " Baronetage," recently presented to the
Advocates' Library, there is a most valuable pedigree of this family. Its main value
consists in the number of references given. Great care and labour have also been spent on
the Bruce family by the late Major William Bruce Armstrong, and his valuable MSS.
are preserved in the Lyon Office. He published part of them under the title of " The
Braces of Airth and their Cadets." Mrs. Cumming Bruce, in her book, "The Bruces
and Cumyns," has also collected masses of material about the various Bruce families,
and her Appendix, giving charters and extracts from original documents, is both
interesting and useful. As so much has already been written on the family, I have
confined myself mainly to giving the direct succession. Some facts will be found not
stated in previous genealogies.

showing the descent of the main line of the Bruces of Stenhouse.

Bruce's "The Bruces and Cumyns," and Robert Riddell's MS. "Baronetage of
Scotland," Vol. III., Advocates' Library.

of Alexander, Lord Livingstone, who died without issue.
He married secondly, Janet, daughter of Malcolm Forrester
of Torwoodhead, by whom he had six sons: — (i) John, his
heir; (2) Sir Alexander of Brigheame,' afterwards of Earlshall;
(3) Edward of Kinnaird' (See under Kinnaird) ; (4) Lucas of

II. — Sir John Bruce,' of Airth, and second of Stenhouse,
succeeded his father [Sir] Alexander." He was slaughtered before
1483, by his wife's brothers, the Menteiths, as appears from
"Pitcairn's Criminal Trials," and also from the following extracts
from the "Acta Dominorum Concilii," i8th October, 1490, p. 153.
The Menteiths and Bruces came to an agreement 18th October,
1490, in presence of the Lords of Council, by which Archibald

5 Acta Dom. Audit., p. 103. Acts Parlt. Scot. Acta Dom. Con. Sir Jolm Bruce,
second of Steohouse.— In all the printed pedigrees of this family which I have seen,
Sir John Bruce, second of Stenhouse, is stated to have predeceased his father.
Sir Alexander. This appears to be assumed on the ground that -n-hereas Sir John's
son, Sir Robert, was served heir to him in Stenhouse in 1483, he was served heir to
his grandfather, Sir Alexander, in Airth, in 1488-9 (Airth Writs). Sir John is designed
"of Stenhouse" in 1477 (Stirling Protocols). This proves nothing, as Sir John's
father probably resigned Stenhouse to him during his lifetime, but on 5th January,
1481, "John Bruce of Arth" acted as Constable Depute (Riddell's MS. "Baronetage "),
and in that same year he had sasine of Lethbertschiells and various other lands,
including parts of Airth, which had belonged to his father (Exchequer Rolls, vol. IX).
He appears to have been indiscriminately designed as of Airth or Stenhouse. Mr.
Robert Riddell, in his MS. " Baronetage," states that Sir John succeeded his father.
