    Christian Dalrymple (1765-1838) was the heiress of Lord Hailes, being his daughter by his first marriage to Anne Brown. Although she inherited the Newhailes estate in 1792, the title passed to her cousin, James Dalrymple, who became 4th Baronet of Hailes. Christian Dalrymple did not marry. Her papers consist largely of family correspondence and her journals which provide a detailed record of her daily life over nearly forty years.
