'Memoir of Andrew Lumisden, Esqr., successively secretary to the son & grandson of James the IInd. In a letter by his nephew, Sir Thomas Andrew William Lumisden Strange, to his son, Lumisden Strange’., 1836.

Identifier: MS.2898

Scope and Contents

The manuscript is in various hands. It is inscribed (folio 1), 'To James Dennistoun of Dennistoun from Sir Thomas A. Lumisden Strange ... 1836', and this date, which also occurs on folio xiii, appears to be that of composition. Entries referring to later dates have been inserted subsequently (some by James Dennistoun). This 'Memoir' differs considerably from the 'Notice' of Lumisden addressed by Strange to his daughter Louisa (MS.281). It includes genealogical accounts of the Strangs of Balcaskie and their descendants, the Stranges (folios x-xiii).
