Research Notes

From Alexander Nisbet’s Heraldic Plates introduction and notes Genealogical and Heraldic by Andrew Ross, Marchmont Herald, & Francis J Grant, Carrick Pursuivant published Edinburgh MDCCCXCIL 1892 (note: some pedigrees have errors, but is a good resource to find references from records, even if the actual source isn't mentioned)

  • 1502 -Adam Nisbet and his wife received on 20th May 1502 a crown charter of the lands of Auchinhay, in the stewartry of Kirkcudbright.
  • 1523-On 14th May 1523 he was served heir to his father in the lands of Nisbet, Otterburn, Over and Nether Raecleuchs, and Mordington. NLS Inventar of the writs of Recleugh

  • He supported the red Douglases in their struggle with king James V., and on 16th April 1529 he, with his son Philip, was put to the horn for non-compearance to a charge of intercommuning with and assisting Archibald, earl of Angus, George Douglas, his brother, and Archibald Douglas, their uncle (Kilspindie), in their treasonable deeds.[4]
  • He was again denounced for assistance rendered to Archibald, earl of Angus, in raising the siege of the castle of Newark. ? I have found a reference for a George Nisbet so far not for Adam.

--Nisbet of That Ilk 1941 by Robert Chancellor Nesbitt says-ADAM NISBET, of that ilk, born 1469, eldest son of Sir Philip Nisbet (1) married Lucie Rutherfurd, daughter of George Rutherfurd of Hundalee. He was served heir to his father on the 14th May 1523. He supported the red Douglases in their struggle with King James V (1513-1542), father of Mary Queen of Scots, and on 16th April 1529, he, with his son Philip, was put to the horn for non-compearance to a charge of intercommuning with and assisting Archibald, Earl of Angus and the Douglases in their treasonable deeds. He appears to have met a violent death in 1530.

Spelling of Surname

Various spellings of last name are found as is the norm. Nisbet (Nisbet of this Ilk) is claimed to be correct spelling for this family surname. It changed after they moved to England end of 1700s, to Nesbitt. The records of the Lyon Register in Edinburgh relating to the arms of the family show continuously the spelling as Nisbet '. Giving the best consideration to the whole problem and with the assent of those qualified to express an opinion, the author holds the view that Nisbet ' is the correct spelling of the name and can properly be adopted and resumed by all those who are descended from Nisbet of that Ilk.
