IX. William Udny of Udny.

He succeeded to the estate, or what remained, for long before his father's death various portions of it had been sold to different individuals. On the 27 May, 1604, William Udny, on the marriage of his eldest son, William, granted a charter, by which he effected a settlement of the lands and barony of Udny, and the sunny half of Auchloun, &c., upon his son, the said William, and his spouse, Helen Cheyne, eldest daughter of Cheyne of Arnage. A charter of the great seal followed, of date 21 January, 1613. In that year, WilUam Udny, sen., with the consent of his son, William, agreed to sell lands of Auchloun to John Seton of Auquhorties. In 1615, William, the fiar of Udny of that ilk, with consent of his father, William, and his brother, Robert of Tilliecorthie, entered into a contract for the sale of the manor of Udny, for the sum of ten thousand merks, to his brother, the Rev. Alexander Udny of Hawkins, Kent, who had already acquired the lands of Auchterellon, and Hillbrae. The charter is dated 10 May, 1615, and includes, besides the manor place, Gilmorton, Ardmore, Mill of Udny, &c. In 1618 there follows the charter of confirmation. In the same year, on March 13, William Udny, fiar of Udny, with consent of his father, William, and his brothers, Robert of Tilliecorthie, and of Alexander of Hillbrae, granted a feu charter in favour of Mr. Gardin, minister of Tarves, and his spouse, of the Mill of Udny.'

In 1623, sasine was given of the above lands to William Seton, but power of redemption was reserved, in the event of a younger brother being able to repurchase the family estates ; but for some years they were in possession of William Seton.

William, the fiar of Udny, survived these transactions many years, for in a book of annual rents and wadsetts in Aberdeenshire, he is described as William Udny in Auchloun, and declares that there was in the year 1633 still owing to him, by Alexander Udny of Auchterellon, one thousand merks.
