A friend on whom he called one
day, and who was aware of his predilection for this liquor, said he would give him
a treat, adding that he had a bottle of claret which was upwards of forty years
old. The bottle was accordingly produced, but proved to be only a pint bottle.
“ Dear me,” said the disappointed Doctor, taking it up in his hand, “ but it’s
unco little 0’ its age !”
Upon another occasion, after he had, with a few friends, not spared the
bottle, some one inquired, “What would hie parishioners say if they met
him thus 1”-‘‘ What 8” says the Doctor, “ they wadna believe their ain een
although they saw it.”
This excellent and much-respected man died on the 25th January 1784, in
the seventy-seventh year of his age.
He was particularly fond of claret.

HE is here represented in the dress’ in which he attended the funeral of Dr.
Gilbert Stuart, who died 28th August 1786, in white linen clothes and black

Dr. James Graham was born at the head of the Cowgate, Edinburgh, 23d
June 1745.
His father, Mr. William Graham, saddler in Edinburgh, was born in Burntisland
in 1710. He married in 1738, in Edinburgh, Jean Graham (born 1715),
an English lady; they had issue three daughters and two sons. The eldest
daughter was married to a Jlr. Smith ; the second to the celebrated Dr. Arnold
of Leicester, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh ; and the
third ta Mr. Begbie, town smith. James was the eldest son j both he and his
younger brother William studied medicine. The two brothers, in their early
years, were not unfrequently mistaken for one another, from their strong family
likeness, and from following the same profession. William, after practising
some time as physician, abandoned medicine entirely, and entered into holy
orders. He was an Episcopalian, and married the celebrated writer, Mrs.
Catharine Macaulay: sister to Alderman Sawbridge j she died at Binfield, in

worthies-old-fashioned Presbyterian Whigs of the strictest kind-were infinitely
gratified by the ‘‘ pomp and vanities ” with which they were surrounded.
It would be very difficult to give an exact catalogue of Dr. Graham’s works.
Such as we have seen are annexed. The list is far from complete.

This passed through several editions ; and an abstract was published at the
small charge of Sixpence.

VI. A Discourse delivered on Sunday, August 17, 1783, in the Tolbooth

changes were effected in the forms of process j and the Jury Court, as a separate
judicature, was abolished. Mi. Bell was appointed one of the Principal Clerks
of Session in 1831, in the place of Sir Walter Scott. In 1833 he waa called
upon to act as chairman of the Royal Commission to examine into the state of
the Law in general. He died 33d September 1843.
VI1.-WILLIAM ROSE ROBINSON, of Clermiston, in the county of
Edinburgh, late Sheriff of Lanark, passed advocate in 1804. His father,
George Robertson of Clermiston, was a Writer to the Signet. Prior to his
being appointed to the office of Sheriff; which compelled his residence in the
west country, Mr. Robinson had very good practice as an advocate. He married,
8th April 1811, Mary, second daughter of James Douglas, Esq., of Orchyarton,
by whom he left several children. He died in 1834, and was succeeded
as Sheriff of Lanark by Archibald Alison, Esq.
VIIL-JOHN WRIGHT, lecturer on law-formerly noticed (vol. I. p, 268).
and Baronet, the author of a valuable work on the Early Superstitions of Scotland,
was born in 1778, and admitted advocate in 1797. He was the second
son of the late Sir Robert Dalyell, fourth Bart. of Binns, Linlithgo-wshire, by
Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Nicol Graham, Esq., of Gartmore, and early in
life distinguished himself by the publication of various works illustrative of the
history and poetry of his native country ; amongst which may be enumerated
Fragments of Scottish History, 4to ; Scottish Poems of the Sixteenth Century,
2 vols., 12mo ; an edition of Richard Bannatyne's valuable Memorials, 8vo ;
and various tracts on the Chartularies of Ancient Religious Houses in Scotland.
He was also deeply versed in natural history, and gave to the world Dissertations
on the Propagation of Zoophytes ; the History of the Genus Planaria ;
and an edition of Spallanzani's Tracts, in 2 vols. 8170. He was successively
President of the Society for encouraging the Useful Arts in Scotland, Vice-President
of the Society of Antiquaries, and one of the representatives of the Fourth
District in the Town-Council of Edinburgh. In the year 1837 the honour of
knighthood was conferred, by letters patent under the Great Sed, for his
attainments in literature. He succeeded his brother as sixth Baronet in 1841,

would not listen to the project.
Amongst other eccentric plans recommended to his patients was that of earthbathing,-
which was neither more nor less than burying them alive up to the
neck in the earth, in which position they were to remain for ten or twelve hours.
He tried this extraordinary remedy upon himself and one of his daughters, and
actually induced his brother-in-law to follow their example. Other persons were
also found simple enough to submit to this new species of temporary sepulture.
In 1787, this singular being appeared in a new character, as a special delegate
from Heaven to announce the Millennium. He not only styled himself
“ The Servant of the Lord, 0. W. L.” i.e. “ Oh, Wonderful Love,” but attempted
to begin a new chronology-dating his bills such a day of the first month of
the New Jerusalem Church ; but before the coming of the second month the
prophet was, by order of the Magistrates, put under restraint, not indeed in
prison, but in his own house, from whence he, some months afterwards, removed
to the north of England. His religious frenzy appears to have lasted some
time; and we learn from the following extract, copied from the Whitehawen
Packet, that a year afterwards his mind still wandered :-
“ JVHITEHAVEN-Tuesday morning’ Dr. James Graham was sent off to
Edinburgh in the custody of two constables. This unfortunate man had, for
some days past, discovered such marks of insanity as made it advisable to secure
him.‘-August 22, 1788.“
His death took place somewhat suddenly, in his house, opposite to the
Archers’ Hall, upon the 23d June 1794-it was occasioned by the bursting of a
bloodvessel. He was buried in the Greyfriars’ churchyard, Edinburgh. His
widow survived him about seven years, and died at Ardwick, near Manchester,
in the year 1801.
His circumstances during the latter period of his existence were far from
affluent. To one of his publications, however, he was indebted for an annuity
of fifty pounds for life j for it happened that a gentleman in Geneva, who had
perused it, found his health so much improved by following the advice of its
author, that, out of gratitude, he presented him with a bond for the yearly
payment of that sum.
With all his eccentricities, he had a benevolent and charitable disposition,
and his conduct towards his parents was exemplary. Even when in his “ hi&
and palmy state,” he paid them every attention. Whilst in Edinburgh, he took

John Stevenson’a sale catalogue for 1825, there is a “manuscript written expressly for Dr. Graham,

In addition to her accomplishments, she possessed

in Edinburgh that it fdund its way into

was a spectator of Miss Graham?s power of personation,
wrote thus regarding it :-

they succeeded in obtaining from him no less a sum, it is said, than one hundred
pounds sterling.
The Doctor was a regular attendant at church, and always contributed to the
plate. That his charity on such occasions might be duly appreciated by those
who were in attendance, instead of throwing in his halfpence in the usual careless
way, he piled them up into one solid massive column of copper, and gently
placing the pillar down, left it, a conspicuous monument of his benevolence.
One act of public spirit, however, does mark the Doctor’s-life, and if his motive
in performing it, as was uncharitably reported at the time, was vanity, one cannot
help being struck with the ingenuity which directed him on the occasion.
He presented the governors of the Orphan Hospital with a bell! His fame
was thus literally sounded throughout the city ; yet, lest any should have been
ignorant of the gift, he took care when in company, on hearing it ring, to advert
to its fine tone, and thus lead the way to a narrative of his generosity.

Eeing once troubled with sore eyes, after in vain trying the prescriptions of
several physicians, he applied to Dr. Graham, who cured him in a very short
time, for which he expressed great gratitude. Wishing to make him some
remuneration, he consulted some of the young members of the Faculty ; and,
as the most genteel way of doing what he wished, they recommended him to
invite the Doctor and a few of his own friends to dinner in Fortune’s (the most
fashionable tavern at that time), and provide himself with a hltndsome purse,
containing thirty guineas or so, and offer it to the Doctor, which they assured
him he would not accept. They accordingly met, and after a few bottles of
wine had been drunk, the old Doctor called Dr, Graham to the window, and
offered him the purse, which he at once accepted, and, with a very low bow,
thanked him kindly for it. The Doctor was so chagrined that he soon left the

IN Spring 1783, Doctor Graham again paid a visit to his native city, and for
the first time gave his fellow-citizens a lecture, which the Magistrates of Edinburgh
deemed improper for public discussion, and accordingly endeavoured
to suppress by the arm of power. The Doctor immediately published “an
appeal to the public,” in which he attacked the Magistrates, and particularly the
Lord Provost, John Grieve, Esq. For this, the Procurator-Fiscal raised a
criminal complaint in the Bailie Court against him, and as his real prosecutors
mere his judges-the result was, his being mulcted in 320, and imprisoned till
the fine was paid. He suffered, however, no very tedious imprisonment, as his
supporters collected the money amongst themselves. He also continued to give
his eccentric lectures as long as the public curiosity lasted ; and to induce people
to hear his lectures, the admission being three shillings, he promised each person
a book worth six shillings-viz. a copy of his lectures ! The admission was
reduced subsequently to two shillings, and lastly to one. The following advertisement
was circulated by him in December 1783 :-
.“DOCTOR GRAHAM desires to inform the Ladies and Gentlemen of
Edinburgh, that at the earnest desire of many respectable persons, he proposes
to favour them on Monday evening next, the 27th instant, and the three following
evenings, with A LECTURE on the simplest, most rational, and most
effectual means of preserving uninterrupted bodily Health, and the most
delightful mental sunshine or serenity to the very longest period of our

a fair and firm Temple of Health, and to repose the Soul on the all-blessing

alone is accepted of God ! ! ! and truly useful to all his Creatures. The Lecture

practised, to preserve them in health, strength, and happiness, through the
course of a long, useful, and truly honourable life here; and to prepare them
for the enjoyment of eternal felicity hereafter.

June 1791. Mr. William Graham is still alive (July 1836), being eighty-one
years of age. He resides in Leicestershire, where he is deservedly held in high
Dr. James Graham, after having finished his studies in Edinburgh, went to
England, and began business in Pontefract, where, in the year 1770, he married
Miss Mary Pickering, daughter of a gentleman of that place, by whom he had
a son and two daughters. His eldest daughter was married to the late Mr.
Stirling, minister of Dunblane, a very accomplished lady, who is still alive (1837).
The other daughter died in the apartments of the Observatory on the Calton
Hill, of consumption, about four years before her father.
After residing some time in England, Dr. Graham went to America, where he
figured as a philanthropic physician, travelling for the benefit of mankind, to
administer relief, in the most desperate diseases, to patients whose cases had
hitherto puzzled the ordinary practitioners. Having the advantage of a good
person, polite address, and agreeable conversation, he got into the first circles,
particularly in New England, where he made a great deal of money. He
then returned to Britain; and, after making an excursion through England,
during which, accordiiig to his own account, he was eminently successful in
curing many individuals whose cases had been considered desperate, he visited
Scotland, and was employed by people of the first quality, who were tempted
to put themselves under his care by the fascination of his manner and the fame
of his wondrous cures. So popular was he, that he might have settled in Edinburgh,
to great advantage, but he preferred returning to England. He fixed
his abode in the metropolis, where he set on foot one of the most original and
extravagant institutions that could well be figured, the object of which was for
“ preventing barrenness, and propagating a much more strong, beautiful, active,
healthy, wise, and virtuous race of human beings, than the present puny, insignificant,
foolish, peevish, vicious, and nonsensical race of Christians, who quarrel,
fight, bite, devour, and cut one another’s throats about they know not what.”l
The “ Temple of Health,” as he was pleased to term it, was an establishment
of a very extraordinary description, and one in which all the exertions of
the painter and statuary-all the enchantments of vocal and instrumental music
-all powers of electricity and magnetism, were called into operation to enliven
and heighten the scene. In a word, all that could delight the eye or ravish the
ear-all that could please the smell, give poignancy to the taste, or gratify the
touch, were combined to give effect to his scheme-at least such was his own

summer residence of Lord Jeffrey-deeply secluded
amid coppice.
The lands of Craigcrook appear to have belonged
in the fourteenth century to the noble family of
Graham. By a deed bearing date 9th April, 1362,
Patrick Graham, Lord of Kinpunt, and David
Graham, Lord of Dundaff, make them over to
John de Alyncrum, burgess of Edinburgh. He
in turn settled them on a chaplain officiating at
?Our Lady?s altar,? in the church of St. Giles,
and his successors to be nominated by the magistrates
of Edinburgh.
John de Alyncrum states his donation of those
lands of Craigcrook, was ? to be for the salvation
of the souls of the late king and queen (Robert
and Elizabeth), of the present King David, and of
all their predecessors and successors ; for the salvation
of the souls of all the burghers of Edinburgh,
their predecessors and successors ; of his own father
and mother, brothers, sisters, etc. ; then of himself
and of his wife; and, finally, of all faithful souls
The rental of Craigcrook in the year 1368 was
only A6 6s. 8d. Scots per annum; and in 1376 it
was let at that rate in feu farm, to Patrick and
John Lepars.
At an early period it became the property of
the Adamsons. William Adamson was bailie of
Edinburgh in 1513, and one of the guardians of
the city after the battle of Flodden, and Williim
Adamson of Craigcrook, burgess of Edinburgh
(and probably son of the preceding), was killed at
the battle of Pinkie, in 1547 ; and by him or his
immediate successors, most probably the present
castle was built-an edifice wbich Wood, in his
learned ?? History of Cramond Parish,? regards
as one of the most ancient in the parish.
In consequence of the approaching Reformation,
the proceeds of the lands were no longer required
for pious purposes, and the latter were made over by
Sir Simon Prestonof Craigmillar, when Provost, to Sir
Edward Marj oribanks, styled Prebend of Craigcrook.
They were next held for a year, by George Kirkaldy,
brother of Sir James Kirkaldy of Grange in
Fifeshire, Lord High Treasurer of Scotland, who
engaged to pay for them A27 6s. 8d. Scots.
In June, 1542, they reverted again to Sir Edward
Majoribanks, who assigned them in perpetual feufarm
to William Adamson before-named. This
wealthy burgess had acquired much property in
the vicinity, including Craigleith, Cammo, Groat
Hall, Clermiston, Southfield, and part of Cramond
Regis. After Pinkie he was succeeded by his son
William, and Craigcrook continued to pass through
several generations of his heirs, till it came into
the hands of Robert Adamson, who, in 1656, sold
to different persons the whole of his property.
Craigcrook was purchased by John Muir, merchant
in Edinburgh, whose son sold it to Sir John
Hall, Lord Provost of the city in 1689-92. He was
created a baronet in 1687, and was ancestor of the
Halls of Dunglass, on the acquisition of which, in
East Lothian, he sold Craigcrook to Walter Pringle,
advocate, from whose son it was purchased by John
Strachan, clerk to the signet.
When the latter died in 1719, he left the whole
of his property, with North Clermiston and the
rest of his fortune, both in land and movables
(save some small sums to his relations) ?? mortified
for charitable purposes,?
The regulations were that the rents should be
given to poor old men and women and orphans ;
that the trustees should be ?two advocates, two
Writers to the Signet, and the Presbytery of Edinburgh,
at the sight of the Lords of Session, and any
two of these members,? for whose trouble one
hundred merks yearly is allowed.
There are also allowed to the advocates, poor
fifty merks Scots, and to those of the writers to the
signet one hundred merks ; also twenty pounds
annually for a Bible to one of the members of the
Presbytery, beginning with the moderator and
going through the rest in rotation.
This deed is dated the 24th September, 1712.
The persons constituted trustees by it held a meeting
and passed resolutions respecting several
points which had not been regulated in the will. A
clerk and factor, each with a yearly allowance of
twenty pounds, were appointed to receive the
money, pay it out, and keep the books.
They resolved that no old person should be
admitted under the age of sixty-five, nor any orphan
above the age of twelve; and that no annuity
should exceed five pounds.
Among the names in a charter by William
Forbes, Provost of the Collegiate Church of St.
Giles, granting to that church a part of the ground
lying contiguous to his manse for a burial-place,
dated at Edinburgh, 14th January, 1477-8, there
appears that of Ricardus Robed, jrebena?anks de
Cragmk mansepropie (? Burgh Charters.?)
Over the outer gate of the courtyard a shield
bore what was supposed to have been the arms of
the Adamsons, and the date 1626 ; but Craigcrook
has evidently been erected a century before that
period. At that time its occupant was Walter
Adamson, who succeeded his father Willian~
Adamson in 1621, and whose sister, Catharine,
married Robert Melville of Raith, according to
the Douglas Peerage. ... HISTORY OF CRAIGCROOK. 107 summer residence of Lord Jeffrey-deeply secluded amid coppice. The lands ...

of other undertakings, and the want of funds, the act was allowed to
expire, and the design fell to the ground. It remained for Sir John to effect
an object, not less useful than ornamental ; and that the progress of the work
might be facilitated, he is understood to have made a serious inroad on his own
resources, calculating no doubt on a return which we believe he did not
The freedom of the city having been voted to Lord Lynedoch,‘ “ the gallant
Graham,” who distinguished himself so much in the Peninsular War, Sir John
gave a grand dinner on Saturday, the 12th of August 1815, in honour of the
Prince Regent’s birthday, at which were present Lord Lynedoch, the Earl of
Morton, Lord Audley, Sir David Dundas, the Lord Chief Baron, the Lord Chief
Commissioner, Admiral Sir Wm. Johnstone Hope, GeneralLWynyard, Sir James
Douglas, Sir Howard Elphinstone, Right Hon. William Dundas, member for
the city, Charles Forbes, Esq., M.P., Sir H. H. MDougal, Sir John Dalrymple,
Mr. Earle, Mr. Sedgwick, and a party of nearly one hundred of the principal
inhabitants of Edinburgh,
After the cloth was removed, and the usual series of toasts had been given,
the Lord Provost proposed the health of Lord Lynedoch ; and, presenting his
lordship with the freedom of the city in a gold box, addressed him as follows :-
“Lord Lynedoch-I have the honour, in the name of the Magistrates of Edinburgh, to
congratulate your lordship on your safe return to this country, after a series of services rendered
to it, which not only reflect the greatest credit on your lordship, but do high honour to your
“My Lord-In the very commencement of the French Revolution, your lordship, with
penetrating discernment, foresaw the imminent danger to which everything dear to man had
become exposed, and leaving the distinguished situation to which your birth, talents, and the
esteem you were so eminently entitled to hold in this country, you betook yourself to the profession
of arms, in which you have rendered the country services which it is out of my power to
enumerate. In the war of the Peninsula, which happily turned the fate of Europe, as a Commander-
in-Chief, and afterwards as second to the immortal Wellington, one invariable line of
victory attended your course ; and if Ireland can proudly claim Wellington as her own, Scotland
has the gmtiEcation to feel that ‘ Prmimos illi tamen oecupvit Graham hmww.’
“ My Lord, the Magistrates of Edinburgh sincerely wish-a wish in which I am sure we are
joined by the country at large-that your health may be long preserved to enjoy the high
esteem and gratitude of your countrymen, and those honours which his Royal Highness the
Prince Regent has, in the name of our revered King, so justly conferred upon your lordship.”
Lord Lynedoch, with that feeling and diffidence so characteristic of merit, in
returning thanks to the Lord Provost and Magistrates, for the honour they had
conferred upon him, expressed himself as overpowered by the overrated estimation
in which any services he had been able to render to his country had
been held, That he had had the particular good fortune to serve under that
greatest of all men, the Duke of Wellington; and to have served under his
orders, and to have commanded British troops, almost insured success. He
must, however, say, that nothing could be more gratifying to his feelings than

of the offer ; and, for three months, whatever happened to be his engagements,
and however agreeably he might be occupied, he regularly attended at the
hour appointed; and so diligently and so successfully did he apply himselq
that, as Mr. Cauvin has often stated, he made more progress in the acquisition
of the language in these three months, than any of his ordinary pupils could
have done in as many years.
In the year 1824 Mr. Cauvin was seized with a disease which terminated
in mortification of the toes of the right foot; and it was only after repeated
remonstrances that he was induced to call in medical aid. From the vigour of
his constitution, however, the disease was checked ; but being attacked by
dropsy, it proved fatal to him ; and he was cut off in December of the following
year, after a lingering confinement, during which he displayed remarkable
fortitude under great suffering.‘ In pursuance of the directions contained in
his will, his remains were interred in Restalrig burying-ground, where his
father and the rest of the family had been buried. The site of the tomb is on
the right hand, immediately before the entrance to the chapel. The following
is the inscription, which was placed there by his trustees :-

for many years an eminent Teacher
of French in Edinburgh,
who bequeathed a fortune,
acquired by his own
skill and industry,
to Endow the Hospital
in the parish of Duddingstou,
which bears his name.
He died, 19th December 1825,
aged seventy-one.a
In passing from the “ Windy Cowl ” to Wester Duddingston the eye ir caught by a square
building overtopping the adjoining houses, which might be regarded as the village priron. The
history of “ The Tower,” for it is so ycleped in the village, is somewhat remarkable. Having purchased
some feu-ground, lying betwixt the mansion-house of the late Colonel Graham and the main
street of the village, Mr. Cauvin proceeded to build upon it, having beforehand declined, aa might
have been expected, to accept of an offer from the Colonel of the exact purchase-money. As the
windows of the new house overlooked the Colonel’s grounds he raised his garden-wall so as to overtop
the gable. To countervail such procedure, Mr. Cauvin had the roof taken down and two storeys
added, whilst the Colonel on his part raised the garden-wan in proportion ; and it is uncertain how
long such unseemly contention might have been kept up, as it was only terminated by the death of
Mr. Cauvin. The not inappropriate name of “ Cauvin’s Folly ” is frequently given to ’‘ The
Tower.” Colonel Graham survived him five years, i.e. till June 1830. The property of Mr. Cauvin,
on which “The Tower ’’ is built, was, two or three years ago, purchased by H. Graham, Esq., son
of the Colonel
In Hr. Cauvin’s will the following directions occur as to the place of his sepulture :-“My

OF all the wonderful and startling spectacles witnessed
amid the lapse of ages from the windows
of the Canongate, none was perhaps more startling
and pitiful than the humiliating procession which
conducted the great Marquis of Montrose to his
terrible doom.
On the 18th of May, 1650, he was brought across
the Forth to Leith, after his defeat and capture by
:he Covenanters at the battle of Invercarron, where
he had displayed the royal standard; and it is
impossible now to convey an adequate idea of the
sensation excited in the city, when the people became
aware that the Graham, the victor in so
many battles, and the slayer of so many thousands
of the best troops of the Covenant, was almost at
their gates.
Placed on a cart-horse, he was brought in by the
eastern barrier of the city, as it was resolved, by
the influence of his rival and enemy, Argyle, to
protract the spectacle of his humiliation as long as

In this way his numerous auditors were properly prepared for his lectures,
which were delivered in the most elegant and graceful manner. The following
letter, his own production perhaps, from a periodical work of the time, descriptive
of his Temple and lectures, is curious :-
‘( Audi alteram partem.
“ SIR-I have heard many persons exclaim against Dr. Graham’s Hymeneal
Lectures, and reprobate him in the most opprobrious terms ; but having not
been myself to see his Temple of Hymen, I thought it unjust to censure or join
in condemning that which I had never seen, or him whom I had never heard.
Curiosity (a passion remarkable in the people of England) prompted me to go
with an intimate friend and pay a visit to the Doctor, whom I found attended
by about forty gentlemen who were intent on listening to his connubial precepts.
I gave attention, and determined to judge impartially of what I heard as well as
saw, and the following is the result of my unprejudiced observations :-
“ His rooms are fitted up in a very elegant and superb manner, far beyond
any thing I ever saw, and must have cost him a very considerable sum of money.
A sta,tue of Beauty, of Yenus de Jfedicis, is the only object that appeared to
me censurable, as likely to excite unchaste ideas. His lecture is well adapted
to the subject he treats on, and is interspersed with many judicious remarks,
well worthy the attention of the Legislature, to prevent prostitution and encourage
matrimony. The nature of the subject naturally obliges him to border on
what is generally termed indelicacy ; but he always endeavours to guard his
audience against imbibing sentiments in my respect repugnant to virtue, chastity,
and modest deportment ; he earnestly recommends marriage, as honourable in
all, and as strongly execrates prostitution and criminality ; wherein then is he

and again, in 1794-5, when he was also chosen Deacon Convener of the Trades.
He took much interest in city affairs ; and was distinguished as an active and
energetic member of the Town Council. Frequently in opposition, he was
conspicuously so when the ‘‘ levelling of the High Street ” was first proposed ;
in the Print of which, formerly given, he figures as a principal opponent.
Dr. Hay resided first in Strichen’s Close ; again at the head of Blair Street,
in the house next to Messrs. Smith and Co., purveyors of oils and lamps ; and
latterly in George Street, where he died on the 11th of April 1816. He
married Miss Jean Graham, sister of the late Lieut.-General Grahaql Deputy-
Governor of Stirling Castle, and left several children, John Hay, Esq., late
member of the Medical Board, Madras, being the eldest, and Dr. David Hay,
of Queen Street, the youngest.
A memoir of SIR JAMES STIRLING has already been given in the first
volume of this Work. From accurate information, we may here state that his
father, Alexander-son of Gilbert Stirling, Esq., and Margaret, daughter, of
Alexander Cumming, Esq., of Birness, cadet of the family of Altyre, Aberdeenshire-
was a merchant of much respectability in Edinburgh, having a shop in the
Luckenbooths, for the sale of cloth and other goods. His mother was a daughter
of James Moir, Esq., of Lochfield, in Perthshire, cadet of the family of
Moir of Leckie.
The honour of a baronetage was conferred on Sir James in 1792, as expressly
stated to him by the Secretary of State for the Home Department, as a
mark of his Majesty’s most gracious approbation of his conduct during the riots
in that year, when (according to the statement of his friends), so far from taking
refuge in the Castle from the fear of personal consequences, he remained there
at great inconvenience to himself, in order that the military should have a civil
magistrate ready to accompany them when called on, which he did on more
occasions than one.
other two sons, Jarnes and William, died in infancy.
Sir James left only one son, who succeeded him in the baronetcy.
In Stewart’s Mil&wy Sketches the following remarkable circumstance is related of General
Graham, then a Lieat.-Colonel, and on service in the West Indies :-“A ball had entered his side
three iuches from the back-bone, and, passing through, had come out under his breast ; another, or
perhaps the same ball, had shattered two of his fingers. No assistance could be got but that of a
soldier’s wife (of the 42d regiment), who had been long in the service, and was in the habit of attending
sick and wounded soldiers. She washed his wounds, and bound them up in such a manner, that
when a surgeon came and saw the way in which the operation had been performed, he said he could
not have done it better, and would not unbind the dressing. The Colonel soon afterwards opened
his eyes, and, though unable to speak for many hours, seemed sensible of what was passing around
him. In this state he lay nearly three weeks, when he WBS carried to Kingston, and thence conveyed
to England. He was still in a most exhausted state, the wound in his side discharging matter from
both orifices. He went to Edinburgh with little hopes of recovery, but on the evening of the illumination
for the battle of Camperdown, the smoke of 80 many candles and flambeaux affecting his
breathing, he coughed with great violence, and, in the exertion, threw np a piece of cloth, left, no
doubt, by the ball in ita passage through his body. From that day he recovered as by a charm.”-

escutcheon, confirm the tradition in question, the armorial bearings (three
cinquefoils) are not those pertaining to the surname of Lawson, but to that of
Liviagsfon; and moreover it appears, from the city records, that the Town
Treasurer or Chamberlain, up to Martinmas 1645, was John Fairholme, his
successor in office being John Jossie, the friend of George Heriot.
On the north wall of the mansion-house of Greenhill, in the immediate
neighbourhood of the enclosure, is a semicircular stone with the letters
already mentioned (I * L and E * R), under the date 1637 ; and on a similar
stone, in the west wall, is an ornamental escutcheon, surmounted by the
initials E - R, and charged with a saltire between a mullet in chief and a'
crescent in base, bearing a close resemblance to the armorial seal of Hugh
Rigg of Carbeny, described in Nisbet's System of UeraZdry. In all probability,
the initiaIs E + R (Elizabeth Rigg ?) indicate the wife of a certain
John Livingston, whose virtues are recorded on the monumental slab ; and
this view is corroborated by the following entry in the Register of Proclamations
and Marriages for the city of Edinburgh :--20 Aprilis 1626. Johnne
Levingstoun Merchant, Elizabeth Rig.' Above the initials on the north wall,
on a smalI semicircular stone surmounted by a crescent, are some scriptural
lines; while the ninth verse of the thirty-fourth Psalm is inscribed on a
similar stone adjoining the escutcheon on the west wall :-' 0 feare the Lord

In 1826 we find Sir Walter Scott, when ruin

Brown?s lodgings, in a third-rate house of St.
David Street, whither he came after Lady Scott?s
death at Abbotsford, on the 15th of May in thatto
him-most nielancholy year of debt and sorrow,
and set himself calmly down to the stupendous
task of reducing, by his own unaided exertions, the
enormous monetary responsibilities he had taken
upon himself.
Lockhqt tells us that a week before Captain
Basil Hall?s visit at No. 6, Sir Walter had suf
ficiently mastered himself to resume his literary
tasks, and was working with determined resolution
at his ?Life of Napoleon,? while bestowing
an occasional day to the ?Chronicles of the

No. 54, now a shop, was the residence of Si1
John Graham Dalyell when at the bar, to which
he was admitted in 1797. He was the second son
of Sir Robert Dalyell, Bart., of Binns, in Linlithgowshire,
and in early life distinguished himself by the
publication of various works illustrative of the
history and poetry of his native country, particularly
?Scottish Poems of the Sixteenth Century,??
?? Bannatyne Memorials,? ?? Annals of the Religious
Houses in Scotland,? Szc. He was vice-president
of the Antiquarian Society, and though heir-presumptive
to the baronetcy in his family, received
in 1837 the honour of knighthood, by letters patent
under the Great Seal, for his attainments in literature.
A few doors farther down the street is now the
humble and unpretentious-looking office of that
most useful institution, the Edinburgh Association
for Improving the Condition of the Poor, and
maintained, like every other charitable institution
in the city, by private contributions.
Hanover Street was built about 1786.
In South Hanover Street, No. 14-f old the
City of Glasgow Bank-is now the new hall of the
Merchant Company, containing many portraits of
old merchant burgesses on its walls, and some
views of the city in ancient times which are not
without interest. Elsewhere we have given the
history of this body, whose new hall was inaugurated
on July 9, 1879, and found to be well adapted
for the purposes of the company.
The large hall, formerly the bank telling-room,
cleared of all the desks and other fixtures, now
shows a grand apartment in the style of the Italian
Renaissance, lighted by a cupola rising from eight
Corinthian ? pillars, with corresponding pilasters
abutting from the wall, which is covered by
portraits. The space available here is forty-seven
feet by thirty-two, exclusive of a large recess.
Other parts of the building afford ample accommodation
for carrying on the business of the ancient
company and for the several trusts connected
therewith. The old manageis room is now used
by the board of management, and those on the
ground floor have been fitted up for clerks. The
premises were procured for ~17,000.

now conducted under one roof, instead of being

THE MARQUIS OF GRAHAM was born in 1755, and succeeded his
father in 1790. He entered the House of Commons in 1781, as one of the
members for Richmond, in Yorkshire, along with the Right Hon. Sir Lawrence
Dundas, who was the other. He was subsequently one of the representatives of
Bedwin, Wiltshire j and, during the few years he remained in the Commons
unconnected with the Government, he proved himself a useful and independent
member-sometimes voting with, and sometimes against, the administration.
In 1784 the Marquis was appointed one of the Lords of the Treasury, then
formed under the leadership of Pitt; and throughout the arduous struggle
which ensued he continued a warm supporter of the Crown.
In 1789, when the indisposition of George 111. gave rise to the project of a
regency, which was urged with so much zeal and impatience by the opposition,
Burke was on one occasion so carried away by the violence of his feelings, that,
in reference to his Majesty, he declared, " the Almighty had hurled him from
his throne !" The Marquis, who was seated beside Pitt on the Treasury bench,
shocked with the rudeness of such language, instantly started to his feet, and
with great warmth, exclaimed-" No individual within these walls shall dare to
assert that the king was hurled from his throne !" A scene of great confusion
ensued. On the recovery of his Majesty, the Marquis was the mover of the
address to the queen.
In " Wraxhall's Mernoila of his own Times"-an amusing, but somewhat prejudiced
work-the following lively sketch of his lordship is given :-
" Few individuals, however distinguished by birth, talents, parliamentary
interest, or public services, have attained to more splendid employments, or have
arrived at greater honours, than Lord Graham under the reign of George the
Third. Besides enjoying the lucrative sinecure of Justice-General of Scotland
for life, we have s e p him occupy a place in the cabinet, while he was joint
Postmaster-General, during Pitt's second ill-fated administration. At the hour
that I am writing,' the Duke of Montrose, after having been many years
decorated with the insignia of the Thistle, is invested with the Order of the
Garter, in addition to the high post which he holds of Master of the Horse.
" In his person he was elegant and pleasing, as far as those qualities depend
on symmetry of external figure ; nor was he,deficient in all the accomplishments
befitting his illustrious descent. He possessed a ready elocution, sustained by
all the confidence in himself necessary for addressing the House. Nor did he
want ideas, while he confined himself to common sense, to argument, and to
matters of fact. If, however, he possessed no distinguished talents, he displayed
various qualities calculated to compensate for the want of great ability ; particularly
the prudence, sagacity, and attention to his inun imteTests, so chamcteristic of
the Caledonian people.'

reality as a spy from Elizabeth. ?He was next
visited, in a pretended friendly manner, by Sir
Williain Drury, Elizabeth?s Marshal of Berwick,
the same who built Drury House in Wych Street,
London, and who fell in a duel with Sir John
Burroughs about precedence, and from whom
Drury Lane takes its name. When about to enter
the Castle gate, an English deserter, who had
enlisted under Queen Mary, in memory of some
grudge, was about to shoot him with his arquebuse,
began to invest the Castle with his paid Scottish
companies, who formed a battery on the Cast!e
hill, from which Kirkaldy drove them all in rout
on the night of the 15th. On the following day,
Sir William Drury, in direct violation of the
Treaty of Blois, which declared ?that no foreign
troops should enter Scotland,? at the head of the
old bands of Berwick, about 1,500 men, marched
for Edinburgh. A trumpeter, on the 25th of April,
summoned Kirkaldy to surrender j but he replied
Kirkaldy. This courtesy was ill-requited by his red flag on David?s Tower as a token of resistance
of the walls, &c.? In anticipation of a siege, the
citizens built several traverses to save the High
Street from being enfiladed ; one of these, formed
between the Thieves? Hole and Bess Wynd, was two
ells in thickness, composed of turf and mud; and
another near it was two spears high. In the city,
the Parliament assembled on the I 7th of January,
with a sham regalia of gilt brass, as Kirkaldy had
the crown and real regalia in the Castle.

18-pounders. There was also a movable battery
of falcons. Under the Regent Morton, the first
battery was on the high ground now occupied by the
Heriot?s Hospital; the second,under Drury,opposed
to St. Margaret?s Tower, was near the Lothian

The Marquis married, in 1793, MARY TURNER GAVIN, eldest daughter
and co-heiress of David Gavin,’ Esq., of Langton, by Lady Elizabeth Maitland,
daughter of James seventh Earl of Lauderdale. The issue of this union were
two daughters and one son. The eldest, Lady Elizabeth Maitland, was married
to Sir John Pringle, of Stitchel, Bart., and the youngest, Lady Mary, to the
Marquis of Chandos, afterwards second Duke of Buckingham.
The Marquis of Breadalbane died at Taymouth Castle, after a short illness,
in 1834, aged seventy-two.’ He was succeeded by his son, John Earl of Ormelie,
lately M.P. for Perthshire. He married, in 1821, the eldest daughter of
George Baillie, Esq. of Jerviswood, then heir-presumptive to the earldom of
Haddington, but had no issue.
As a substantial proof that the “ sway I’ of the surviving Countess Dowager
sat lightly, her ladyship was left one of the richest widows in Scotland. Another
instance of peculiar esteem, on the part of the Marquis, was the fact that, a few
years before his death, he caused to be erected, at great expense, a Cross of the
most elegant architectural design, in honour of the Marchioness, upon which is
an inscription highly complimentary to her ladyship. The Cross stands in a
delightful and conspicuous situation, at the extreme end of the celebrated “Beech
Terrace,” at Taymouth.
THE shop of the artist, a place of much attraction, was unusually so while
the novelty of the above Caricature continued. Mr. Campbell, whose property
bordered on that of Breadalbane, was acquainted with the Earl; and
happening, as rarely occurred, to be in Edinburgh, he was induced to gratify
his curiosity by a peep at Kay’s window, where, little dreaming of the trap laid
for him by his friends, he no sooner recognised the burlesque representation
Subsequently settling in Scotland,
he purchased the beautiful estate of Langton (the ancient seat of the Cockborns), near Dunse,
in Berwickshire.
-a The whole of the personal estate of the late Marquis, it is said, exceeding 6300,000, had been
directed by his will to accumulate for twenty years, at the end of which it was to be laid out on
estates, to be added to the entailed property ; but his settlement wm partly set aside by the Marquis
of Chandos, in right of his wife, xrho obtained an affirmance, by the House of Peers, of the decisiou
of the Court of Session, declaring that the Marchioness and her husband, in her right, were entitled
to demand legitim.

the source of much wealth; and, by his judicious management, he otherwise
greatly enhanced the value of his estate.
Sir Archibald took an active hand in superintending his numerous colliers
and salters. They were a rough, uncultivated set of people; and, like most
workmen in similar emplogments, not very deeply impressed with proper
notions of subordination. He had his own system of management, however ;
and, although not strictly in accordance with the principles of constitutional
government, it proved not less efficacious than it was summary in its application.
He required no sheriff or justice courts to settle matters of dispute. Armed
with his jockey-whip, Sir Archibald united in his own person all the functionaries
of justice ; and, wherever his presence was required, he was instantly on the
spot. On several occasions, when, by the example and advice of neighbouring
works, his men were in mutiny, he has been known to go down to the pits, and,
with whip in hand, lay about him, right and left, until order was restored.
The work would then go on as formerly-the men as cheerful and compliant as
if nothing untoward had occurred. Upon the whole, his people were happy and
contented; and although the means which he took to enforce obedience were
somewhat arbitrary, his subjects felt little inclination to object to them.
Although much of his time was thus devoted to his own affairs, public
matters of local interest received a due share of his attention; and on every
occasion of a patriotic or charitable nature he stepped nobly forward with his
counsel and assistance.
Sir Archibald resided chiefly at Pinkie House,' where he maintained the
genuine hospitality of the olden times, and kept such an establishment of
" neighing steeds " and " deep-mouthed hounds " as at once declared the owner
to be, in sentiment, one of those doughty "squires of old" whose masculine
ideas of enjoyment were widely at variance with the effeminacy attributed to
the luxurious landholders of more modern times.
As might be anticipated from his character, Sir Archibald was a member of
the Caledonian Hunt-a body of Scottish gentlemen well known to be somewhat
exclusive in the admission of members. Of this honourable club he held the
high distinction of President in 1789, at which period the etching of the
" Knight of the Turf " was executed.
Sir Archibald married, in 1758, Elizabeth, daughter of William M'Dowall,
Esq. of Castle Semple, by whom he had two sons and five daughters. On the
death of this lady in 1778, he married (the year following) Elizabeth, daughter
of John Patoun, Esq.-a gentleman whose name was originally Paton; but
who, having gone abroad in his youth, and amassed a large fortune, on his return
to his native country changed the spelling of it to Patmr The issue of this
second marriage were three sons and one daughter.
In former times the seat of the Earls of Dnnfermline-a branch of the Setons, who had large
possessions in the east country, which were forfeited by the attainder of the last Earl of Wintonthe
