Description
 
The Heriots of Ramornie were an ancient Fifeshire family of modest beginnings who over the course of many centuries slowly increased their lands and their position. They were seldom on the national scene and they held no national office in church or state. They were ardent reformers during the Reformation, adhering to the religion of John Knox but careful never to become too exposed to danger from those higher up. They carefully avoided passionate commitment either to the royalist or the parliamentary cause during the 17th century. Younger sons went into business, while the eldest son managed the estate. They lived a simple, pious, cautious life. There were more senior branches of the family in Berwickshire, and other branches were scattered here and there. This work, then, records the life and times of one branch of the Heriots from around 1476 to the end of the 19th century. Included is information on each generation of the family and its history and genealogy, as well as material on seals and arms.
