    Notes 
    • "CRAIGEN - Local. In 1272 the church of Cragyn (now Craigie) in Kyle was confirmed to the Monks of Paisley by THOMAS de CRAGYN son and heir of JOHN HOSE, who had assumed his surname from his lands (RMP., p.232). He may be the THOMAS de CREGEYN del counte de ARC who rendered homage in 1296 (Bain 11, p.206). ADE CRAGYNE who held a tenement of Irvine 1477 (Irvine, 1, p.149) most probably derived his name from the same source. A family of this name in New Pitsligo village were remarkable for their longevity. (AEI., p.47) CHRISTAIN CRAIGANE was liferenter of Readfurd, 1630 (LIM., p.110) PATRICK CRAIGEN in Burnebray of Gorthie, 1670 (Dunblane) and ROBERT CRAIGIN in the Parish of Sumbennan, 1716 (SCM., IV, p.171). WM CRAIGEN was a member of the Huntley Volunteers, 1798 (Well p.19) (a history of the volunteer movement in Strathbogie from 1798-1808) and JOHN W.
