About William Udny of that Ilk

William Udny of that Ilk is listed as a juror in the SHerriffs court of Aberdeeenshire 29/11/1574. As William's father (also William) had died in 1573 this must refer to the younger William who would have taken on use of the title "of that Ilk" at his father's death. http://archive.org/stream/recordsofsheriff01aberuoft#page/215/mode/1up

In 1575, Andrew Udny of Tillery, previously quoted as having obtained a charter of the Mains Udny and fortalice from his brother, William, on the 25th of February, signed a bond of reversion of all these in favour of his nephew, William. These transactions can only be accounted for, by supposing that William had been in pecuniary difficulties, and had been obliged to make over his estates to his brother, Andrew of Tillery/ In 1589, William Udny signs a bond in defence of the true religion.^ The Commendator of the Abbey Kinloss, Edward Bruce, granted in 1592, to William Udny of that ilk and his heir, the teind scheaves of the Mains of Udny, and other lands on payment of certain dues."* In 1599, the lands of Minnes had been mortgaged to George Seton of Auchinhuiffe for five thousand merks, and on 11 November, 1599, the said George Seton, granted a bond of reversion of the said lands to William Udny. William Udny married Matilda Gordon, a daughter (it is said), of William Gordon, Bishop of Aberdeen, she died in 1577, by her he had issue : —

I. William.

II. Robert, of Tilliecorthie, burgess or Aberdeen. He acquired some right to the Udny estate by contract of sale of date 20th November, 1634, and died s. p. 1636. He was a merchant in Amsterdam.

III. Alexander of Auchterellon and Hillbrae, was minister of Hawkins, Kent, and was fined 1000 merks by the Covenanters. It is noted in the parish records of Ellon, that he gave ;^2o yearly to the poor, and in 1632, he made a gift of "croft Modlie" for charitable purposes. In 1615, he got a conveyance in security of Udny from his brother, William ; but in 1622, reconveyed it to William, by whom, with consent of the other brothers, Udny was disponed to William Seton (by whom, with consent of the other brothers, it was disponed in 1634, to Robert Udny),^ Alexander Udny was served heir general to his brother, Robert, 22 March, 1637, and d. s. p., when his niece inherited Hillbrae.

IV. John, of Belhelvie, of whom afterwards.

1. Helen.

2. Elizabeth, married Peter, second son of John Leith of Harthill.

It was in the lifetime of this William Udny, that Udny was erected into a separate parish. William Udny died about 1618, and was succeeded, in what remained of the Udny estates, by his eldest son IX. William Udny of Udny.
