Genealogical Memoirs of the Duffs
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (152 pages)
Author: W/ Baird
"Genealogical and Historical Memoirs of the Sirname Duff, And principally of the Family of Moldavid, now represented by Lord Fife, From the Earliest Accounts to the Present Time" was written by William Baird of Auchmeddan in Aberdeenshire sometime between 1763 and 1773, when he sent it as a present to William Duff of Muirtown.
Baird was a Jabobite laird whose adherence to the cause of Prince Charles in 1745 forced him into hiding for a considerable period of time and whose lands had to be sold to pay his debts incurred on behalf of the young Prince. This history, reprinted in 1869, is most valuable for the information which it provides on the 18th-century family and on their activities and accomplishments during that century.
