teered his services, in 1810.

This noble family is derived from Fyfe Macduff, who was a man of considerable wealth and power temp. king Kenneth II. of Scotland, and gave that prince great assistance in his wars with the Picts, about the ear 834. On their reduction, 840, kin enneth gave to this Macduff, in reward o his services, all the lands then called Othelinia, which he himself had conquered from the Picts, and which extended from Fifeness to Clackmannan, from east to west, and from the river Forth on the south, to the rivers Tay and Erne on the north. Of this tract of land, which he called Fife, he was appointed hereditary thane, or baron; and this dignity was enjoyed by his o in a direct line to Macduff, the 8th thane, who having contributed to the restoration of King Malcolm Canmore, that king confirmed to him his county of Fife, and created him earl thereof in 1057, or 1061. The title of earl became extinct in 1353, on the death of Duncan, the 13th earl, without issue male. From the same ancestor descended David Duff, ancestor of the present earl, to whom Robert III., 1401, granted considerable lands, and the .# of Muldavit, which continued to be one of the chief titles of the family, until alienated in the beginning of the reign of Charles I. WILLIAM DUFF, of Dipple and Braco, 1727, represented co. Banff in parliament, and steadily adhered to the interests of his country, but preferring a private to a public life, declined to be returned to the next arliament. He was created lord Braco, of ilbryde, by the privy seal of queen Caroline, when regent, bearing date at Kensington, 17 June, and by patent at Dublin, July 1735; and was further created viscount *sacduff and earl of Fife, 26 April 1759. His lordship, during the rebellion in Scotland,

joined the duke of Cumberland at Aberdeen, in March 1745, and made a free offer of his services to the government in any way his majesty should require.
