  SIR WILLIAM FRASER S PAPERS
  which, with a small sum recovered and sunk for high Interest
  in the hands of Kincoussie, by wronderfull, yet genteel
  economy She contrived to keep a comfortable house in
  Aberdeen—with the kindness of friends inviting Her to
  the country in summer and a dozen or two of Claret when
  she became old and weak from Her Brother Lord Monboddo.
  In the sale of Halgreen it appears that a jointure was
  secured upon it for the wife or widow of William Rate
  the younger with whom the Race expired. It would
  appear that Lawgaven had been Executor and probably
  Residuary Legatee to His Mother in Law Elizabeth
  Douglas—as an instruction from Robert Irvine Her Son
  urges, the speedily turning the effects settled on Him
  into money. Tis also like likely the old Lady had ended
  her days at Monboddo.
  Ill
  ANCESTRY OF THE FAMILY OF BARCLAY OF
  MATHERS AND URY from a.d. 1110 to a.d. 1610 5
  1. Theobald de Berkeley, born a.d. 1110, lived in the
  time of Alexander the First & David the First, kings of
  Scotland.
  2. Humphrey his son, cousin of Walter deBerkeley, Great
  Chamberlain of the Kingdom, became owner of a large
  domain in this County, and from the lands of Balfeith,
  Monboddo, Glenfarquhar, and other portions of it, granted
  to the monks of Aberbrothwick, donations that were
  confirmed by William the Lion.
  3. Richenda, his only child, renewed & made additions
  1 The MS. from which this is printed is in the handwriting of Mr. William
  Fraser, Stonehaven, uncle of Sir William, to whom he sent it in July 1855. The
  first part may be a summary of some earlier pedigree (cf. Nisbet, Heraldry,
  vol. ii., App. p. 236), but the inscriptions on the monuments were copied by
  himself.
  This MS. must have been known to the late Mr. Jervise, as it appears, with
  various additions, in his Epitaphs and Inscriptions (1875), vol. i. pp. 80 et seq.
