Originally published in 1883, and produced as a large two volume set, James Taylor's selection of great historic families concentrates upon those which have played a major role in the long and often controversial history of this small but fascinating country in the north of Britain. Taylor is noted not only for his historical and genealogical accuracy but also for his well-written story of men and women who are of interest. You will find yourself reading a section on a particular family and then racing ahead to find out how that family fared and what indeed happened to that ill-fated Earl or Duke whose adventures were most certainly not wise!

Included are extended chapters on the following families: Douglas, Keith, Seton, Ruthven, Crichton, Mackenzie, Hamilton, Campbell, Leslie, Ramsay, Maule, Maitland, Home, Hume, Maxwell, Johnstone, Stewart of Traquair, Drummond, Erskine, Graham, Scott, Hepburn, Fraser, Gordon, Hay, and MacLellan.
