The Pedigrees and Heraldry of the Murrays

The Heraldry of the Murrays

with notes on all the males of the family, descriptions of the arms, plates and pedigrees

by G Harvey Johnston

The above ebook is available at openlibrary.org.

125 copies of the work were printed, of which 100 were offered to the public.

The object of this project, which is based on the above publication, is to connect the numbered individuals from the Pedigrees in that book to profiles on Geni. It is essentially a transcription of the book, embellished with the Arms as given in the text and various comments where discrepancy arises.

There is some dispute/conflicting information regarding the first generations - Some sources (this book included) suggest that Freskin had 3 sons; others that he had only the 1 - William, and that the other two sons were in fact sons of William, son of Freskin. I have on Geni followed Burke's Peerage where one son is documented. Where there is a icn_check.gif this information has been tied in with that on B-P (CJB)

I have also used A genealogical and heraldic history of the landed gentry ; or, Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland by John Burke Pages 619 onwards. § used as reference below

Where possible I will a reference - P# - after a name which refers to the relevant page on the Peerage.com

Where the person has also been located on Burkes Peerage this is indicated with a B-P or icn_check.gif Checked in the 107th Edition.

Please Note - The Arms assigned to the profiles are by no means definitive - they have been used to illustrate profiles based roughly where they fall in the pedigrees. They should/will be changed if/when more accurate information re dates etc. comes to light.

How to add a link is explained in the attached document - Adding links to Geni profiles in projects.

This is very much a work in progress and will take me some time! A personal challenge. CJB.

Glossary, abbreviations etc.

  • P# - The Peerage Number
  • B-P - Burke's Peerage
  • d.s.p. - descessit sine prole; died without issue.
  • infeft - to invest with or give symbolical possession of inheritable property (Scots law)
  • fealty - the loyalty sworn to a feudal lord by his tenant
  • s.p. - sine prole - without issue
  • titular - relating to, having the nature of, or constituting a title.

See Pedigree Chart on page 2.

The first known ancestor of this family was Freskin, who accompanied King David I. to suppress an insurrection in the North in 1130, and was granted lands in Moray, which districts, under the forms of Moray or Murray, gave a surname to his descendants. He also held the lands of Strabrok, in Linlithgow. From him descended the Morays, Lords of Bothwell ; and the families of Sutherland, Earls of Sutherland and Lords Duffus ; the Sutherlands of Forse, etc.

The Murrays of Atholl

The Murrays of Atholl.

Principal Authority Scots Peerage.


The most probable origin of this family is given in the Scots Peerage as follows :

On referring to No. 86 of this work, it will be seen that John Murray, elder son of Sir Malcolm Murray, settled about 1284 the lands of Aldie on his younger brother, William. According to the charters of Inchaffray, Gilbert, Earl of Strathearn, granted the lands of Aldie to his daughter, Matilda, on her marriage with Malcolm, Earl of Fife, who died about 1228. Sir Robert Douglas in his Peerage says that Walter Moray of Bothwell (No. 6 of this book) married a daughter of the Earl of Fife; but the Scots Peerage says that it was Walter's father - Sir William Moray of Bothwell (No. 5), - died before 1253, who married a daughter of Malcolm, Earl of Fife. If these statements are correct, the lands of Aldie came from the Earl of Strathearn to his daughter and her husband, Malcolm, Earl of Fife. The lands then passed to their daughter, who married Sir William Moray of Bothwell (No. 5), and from them to their son, Sir Malcolm Murray (No. 86), probably named after the Earl of Fife, and who was the first of the Atholl family. According to this, Sir Malcolm Murray was second son of Sir William Moray (No. 5).

The earlier writers thought that Sir Malcolm Murray (No. 86) was a son of a John Moray, Sheriff of Perth, supposed to be a son of Hugh Moray of Duffus (No. 2, a), but there is no evidence to support this view, and as there were two, if not three, John Morays living at that time, this suggested origin has been abandoned.

The head of these Murrays is the seventh and present Duke of Atholl, and the cadets became Earls of Dunmore, Lords Nairne, Viscounts Stormont, Earls of Mansfield, and Earls of Dysart. The other cadets were the Baronets of Glendoick, the Murrays of Ayton, Pitcaithly, Lintrose, Dollary, Arbenie, Pitcullen, Dollerie, Woodend, Strowan, and Tippermore.

(86) Sir Malcolm Murray or de Moravia icn_check.gif died before 1289. He was witness to a charter granted by Malise, Earl of Strathearn, between 1251 and 1263. He was Sheriff of Perth about 1276, and is said to have married the daughter and heiress of Gilbert of Gask, with whom he got that property. He had two sons:

  • 86(a) John Murray, who gave his lands of Culnacloich and Ruthtrelan in Strathbogie about 1284 and the lands of Aldie to his brother, William.

The Morays of Abercairny

Principal Authorities - Douglas' Baronage, Burke's Landed Gentry, and Inchaffray Charters.


According to Douglas' Baronage the Morays of Abercairny were descended from a William de Moravia, said to be second son of Sir Andrew, Lord of Bothwell (No. 8 above), but there is no evidence in support of this claim (see Riddell's Stewartiand).

(249) Sir William de Moravia, died about 1300. He was father of: -

ARMS on her Seal, 1401. - Two shields: the dexter per pale (Douglas and Galloway); the sinister shield, three stars, for Moray (Macdonald's Seals).

Note.- - It is not certain that this Sir Maurice was a son of Sir John of Drumsargard. It is certain that he did not become Earl of Strathearn in right of his mother.

The Murrays of Falahill.


Principal Authority - Scots Peerage.

As the first recorded ancestor of this family belonged to Peeblesshire, it is probable that the Murrays of Falahill and Cockpool had a common origin. From Falahill descended the Murrays of Philiphaugh, Deuchar, Priestfield, the Baronets of Melgund, Romanno, the Baronets of Stanhope, Broughton in Peeblesshire, Cardon, the later Murrays, Baronets of Blackbarony, Cringletie, Henderland, Lords Elibank, and the Baronets of Dunerne.

As regards the present family of Blackbarony and its cadets, it was generally believed that they were descended from the original Murrays of Blackbarony, but the Scots Peerage proves that the original family sold Blackbarony to a John Murray in 1507, who appears on record as assignee of the executors of William Murray in Sundhope, his father's brother. William Murray in Sundhope was undoubtedly the son of John Murray of Falahill (No. 274), so John Murray, who purchased Blackbarony, and all his descendants must belong to Falahill also.

(270) Archibald de Moravia, in Peeblesshire, died before 1321. He signed the Ragman Roll 1296. He was father of: -

  • 270(a) Malcolm, who also signed 1296.
  • 270(b) Roger (No. 271 below).

(271) Roger de Moravia. On 1st September 1321 he had a grant of the lands of Fala and Heriot, in Midlothian, and was father of: -

(272) Alexander de Moravia, living 1380, father of: -

(273) Patrick Murray of Falahill, living 141 3, father of: -

(274) John Murray of Falahill, died before 20th February 1477. He was probably the "outlaw Murray" of the Border ballad (see Genealogist, New Series, Vol. XII., p. 217). On 20th July 1461 he had a charter of the lands of Philiphaugh, in Selkirkshire, and left issue: -

  • 274(a) Patrick (No. 275 below).
  • 274(b) Alexander Murray, Canon of Moray, died between 17th September 1484 and 1st March 1485.
  • 274(c) Peter Murray, died before 27th July 1511. He married Janet Borthwick, and had a son: -

  • 274(g) William Murray in Sundhope, died before 30th April 1499. He left a son : -
  • 274(g)1 John Murray.

In the Retours I find : -

  • John Murray, late of Sundhope, heir of William Murray of Sundhope, his father, 13th April 1622.
  • Gideon Murray of Sundhope, heir of William Murray, fiar of Sundhope, his father, 26th April 1649.
  • James Murray of Sundhope, heir of Gideon Murray, fiar of Sundhope, his father, 17th April 1693.

Note. - It was a nephew of William Murray in Sundhope who was the first of the later Murrays of Blackbarony.
