Daughter and heiress of Alexander Crawford of Kerse, Ayrshire (and widow of William Ballenden of Stenness) the second wife of Capt James Moodie, seventh Laird of Melsetter, was "somewhat of a character and a lady of strong passions" who resided alternately at Aikerness House, Evie, and at Melsetter. She managed the estate during her son's minority and she "ruled with a rod of iron" in the difficult times of being "a woman guardian of the fortunes of a Hanovrian family in a Jacobite country". She was still living on 17 April 1749.
