  • ID: I18456
  • Name: Elizabeth Ramsay
  • Sex: F
  • Note:

    Dau of David Ramsay of Clatto.
    Henry Pitcairn, married Elizabeth Ramsay, a wealthy heiress, and from then that particular branch of Pitcairn arms were quartered with the Ramsay arms.
    Forthar was the home of the main branch of the family from 1456-1756. In 1625 it was given an annual value of 180 merks. Ten generations lived there over a period of exactly 300 years. The land came to the Pitcairns of Pitcairn & Innernethy through marriage of the 10th Laird, Henry Pitcarne, to an heiress Elizabeth Ramsay. The first generation called themselves ?Pitcairn of Forthar-Ramsay?. Thereafter they were known as ?Pitcairn of Forthar? though they kept the Ramsay eagles quartered with the red Pitcairn mascles in their Coat of Arms.
    Some make her the daughter of a family from Suffolk, England, but this is surely wrong.
