-------

After the decease of Sir John, a calamitous and almost ruinous contest arose between his younger sons and their brother-in-law, the Earl of Athol. Tradition affirms that the Earl, having married Sir John's only daughter, deemed himself entitled to a portion, at least, of the Rattray estate, and being a person of great power and authority, came, with a considerable body of men, took possession of the castle of Rattray, and carried off the family writs; while Patrick Rattray, the second son, totally unable to resist so potent a nobleman, retired to the castle of Craighall, winch he gallantly defended, and succeeded in holding, together with the lands of Craighall and Klnballoch; the Athol family continuing to possess the greater part of the lands of Rattray. until they were evicted from them by an appraising, at the instance of Sir Robert Crichton, of Clunie, about the beginning of the seventeenth century.
