This three volume history was written by Charles W. Barclay, Hubert F. Barclay, and Alice Wilson Fox. This three-part history of the Barclay family appeared over a 10-year period, with Part I published in 1924. It was a history from 1066 to 1924, and concentrated upon the arrival of the progenitor in the wave of feudal lords who accompanied Duke William of Normandy in 1066.
Part I therefore concentrates upon the settlement of Roger de Berchelai in England and upon his descendants and their activities in Gloucestershire through the late medieval period. Part II appeared in 1933 and concentrated upon the Scottish line. This second volume has chapters on the Gartley, Towie, Brechin, Mathers, Knockleith, the Russian De Tolly line, the Collairnie line, and finally the Barclays of the west of Scotland, including Ardrossan, Kilbirnie,Crawford-John, Ladyland and Pierston lines.
Part III appeared in 1934 and completed this study of the Barclays with chapters on Colonel David Barclay, 1610-1686; Robert Barclay the Apologist; the Urie line; David Barclay of Cheapside; the Barclays of the Bank; and the senior line, the Barclays of Bury Hill. There are also extensive pedigrees and appendices.
