Caption

The Ogilvie. The founder of this family was a son of the Earl of Angus in the days of William the Lion, and he assumed the name of his lands, granted from the Crown. They always occupied a high place in Scottish affairs, the Earl of Airlie being the head of the main branch. The fifth earl was out in the '45 with 600 men, and marched to Derby with Prince Charles, afterwards taking part at the Battle of Culloden. The Earlof Seafield, a promoter of the union with England in 1707, was a member of this family, byt the title is now extinct. Badge, "Hawthorn."
