Excerpt from History of the Partition of the Lennox
Under these circumstances, it is hoped that a history or the partition or the lennox, with an exami nation of the various claims to the character of heir-ge neral of the Earldom, will, as it is perfectly new, be ac ceptable to the public. The author regrets that the task had not been undertaken by some one more com petent to do it justice, but he has spared no pains to throw light upon the subject. He has diligently perus ed and considered all the antiquarian compilations, be sides examining every original record, public and pri vate, connected with the history of this ancient Earl dom, so far as open to his inspection. And in arriving at the conclusion that neither the Case for Gleneagles, nor the more modern pretension put forward on the part of Woodhead, could stand in law before a Case for Merchiston, he trusts the following pages will show that he is supported by legal evidence, and not misled by partial feelings.
