About David Barclay

David Barclay was called a very polite, well-bred man, but by the easiness of his temper, and living much at Court, he brought himself into such difficulties as obliged him to sell the estates, first Mathers, (after they had kept it nearly 300 years) and then the old estate which had been in their possession upwards of 500 years.
