Charles was a strong Jacobite. He is thought to have had a close relationship with Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat, aka "The Fox", as Charles and his son William are mentioned in Simon's entail in 1774. <ref name="History" />An entail is a legal document that allows an estate to pass through more than one generation.<ref>https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/entail</ref>
