Return to Ranald Grahme

A list of transactions, leases, deeds, disputes etc held at the National Archives and others. As I have no access to these documents, their relevance or importance is unknown but may be worth investigating further. There are a considerable number not listed here as they have little information but may also be worth looking at.

Without seeing these documents it's difficult to distinguish the relationship between the various Grahmes. George Grahme, inherited Norton Conyers from his father Richard (1st bt) who died in 1653. Richard was Ranald's brother, and consequently George was Ranald's nephew. George himself had five sons, Richard, who was first in line, followed by James, Fergus, William and Renald or Reginald. He died in c1658/9 and his will[1] proved in March 1659/60 was ambiguous, he basically left it up to his Uncle Ranald to sort out, so it's very likely that there were challenges to the inheritance which finally went to George's eldest son Richard (who became 3rd bt). So it's possible the three plaintiffs are sons of the late George Grahme. Their mother Mary Johnstone had remarried to George Fletcher 2nd Bt, who was now their stepfather.
