Notes

George Crawfurd (d. 1748) compiled this substantial study at the urging of his father-in-law, the historian James Anderson, at the time struggling to find patronage following the Act of Union. 'As the first publication upon the Peerage of Scotland, this work is deserving of great praise' (Moule).
