Grisel Brodie

(circa 1646 - )
     Grisel Brodie was born circa 1646. She was the daughter of Alexander Brodie of Brodie, whose mother was married secondly to Alexander Dunbar of Westfield.
     Grisel Brodie married Sir Robert Dunbar, son of Ninian Dunbar and Finduella Christian? Dunbar, circa 1664 in Dyke. She was 18 at her marriage. They had 4 sons & 9 daughters.
Burgie Castle, where Brodie and the coming Bishop put up, was
the scene of an extraordinary occurrence a few years before.
The stately old turretted castle of Burgie, situated on a
rising ground overlooking the plain of Moray about two
miles south-east of Kinloss, belonged to the family of Dunbar.
They had fallen into embarrassed circumstances, and the property
was heavily mortgaged. It was a burden from the ill-requited
services to the King in the old days when Moray lairds took the
field for him against the English Army, hazarding their lives and
their fortunes for his cause. When the Scottish Army were
routed at the Battle of Dunbar, they were in dire straits for
want of provisions. The Laird of Brodie himself was Commissary-


'General at the time, as we have seen, and he got his nephew, the
Laird of Lethen, to advance a considerable sum of money to keep
the troops from famishing. Lethen was not the only north-
countryman who came to the relief of the troops. Robert
Dunbar, Laird of Burgie, gave his personal obligation for over
1000 sterling a large sum in those days to several millers
and mealdealers for supplies of food biscuits and oatmeal
when the troops reached Stirling. In acknowledgment he
received Nimmo, the acting Commissary's receipts in due form.
Time and again he had applied for repayment to the Govern-
ment when the King had come to his own, but was always put
off on one technical ground or other, the real reason being (so he
alleged) that Lauderdale had a private grudge against him. An
Edinburgh mealdealer, named M'Bean, who had supplied part of
the victual, got decreet against Dunbar of Burgie, and, failing to
.get payment, had him put in the. Tolbooth of Edinburgh, where
he was kept for six and a-half years. The other bondholders
threatened to foreclose. Thomas Dunbar of Grange, a neighbour
and relative (they were both descended from sons of Alexander
Dunbar, the Dean of Moray, who had married Catherine Reid,
niece of the Abbot of Kinloss), purchased the property from old
Robert Dunbar, discharged the bonds and took possession of the
old Castle of Burgie. Young Dunbar, son of the old Laird of
Burgie, attacked the Castle with a band of armed men, captured
it, and turned out its inmates. He then proceeded to fortify it,
and to hold it against all concerned. An act of such gross law-
lessness, even in a time when the public peace was not too well


preserved, caused great excitement and commotion. Dunbar of
Grange applied to the civil authorities for redress, and all the
forms of law in the shape of summonses, warnings, and executions
were resorted to. But they had no effect. Young Dunbar of
Burgie refused to give up the place, and paid no heed to the pro-
cesses of the law courts. The Earl of Moray used all his powers
of friendly persuasion, but he found young Dunbar obdurate.
The matter was reported to the Privy Council, and the Chancellor,
the Earl of Eothes, ordered the assembling of troops to accompany
the herald to summon the Castle, in the King's name, to surrender.
Accordingly, John Basillie, herald, appeared before the Castle of
Burgie, displayed the King's coat-of-arms, and his trumpets
summoned the Castle to instantly surrender, failing which an
assault would be made upon it. Young Dunbar saw that further
defiance was out of the question, and gave in, and the Castle of
Burgie was restored to Grange after more than two months'
resistance. It was to show hospitality to the Laird of Brodie and
the minister of Forres, at the end of their day's golfing, that
Dunbar of Grange came by Forres to his hard-won possession on
the 22nd of August, 1672.
. Grisel Brodie was buried in 1689? In Elgin Cathedral, Moray. The tomb of Robert Dunbar of Grange Hill head of the family in 1675. This was erected by her husband, in memory of his very dear wife.
