The Bannatyne Manuscript. 
INTRODUCTORY NOTE. 

BY THE EDITOR. 

In the Memoir of George Bannatyne by Sir Walter Scott, the 
Extracts from the Memoriall Buik by Dr. David Laing, and 
the other literary and bibliographical matter bearing on the 
contents of the Bannatyne Manufcript, which have now been 
grouped in the firfl volume of the Hunterian Club edition, 
there will be found all that is really known as to this famous 
collection of Scottifh Poetry, and of its compiler, George 
Bannatyne. 

There will thus be no occafion to traverfe the fame ground 
in the prefent note, but it will not be out of place to give a 
ihort account of the genefis and completion of the Club 
fcheme for printing for its members a full and exact rendering 
of the eleven hundred bulky folios of the Manufcript, " written 
in the tyme of peft" — 1568 — by George Bannatyne. 

Shortly after the work of the Hunterian Club was begun 
it was decided that a complete copy of the Bannatyne Manufcript 
fhould if poflible be obtained, and permifiion for this purpofe 
having been courteoufly granted by the authorities of the 
Advocates 1 Library in Edinburgh, where the Manufcript is 
depofited, arrangements for carrying it out were made. 

The fervices of Mr. Aimers, a competent copyifl of old 
writings, were retained, and the Rev. George A. Panton, a 
member of Council of the Club, and who about this time had 
gone to refide in Edinburgh, undertook the editorial work. 
Unfortunately, after only the first two fheets had been printed, 
Mr. Panton was feized with ferious illnefs, from which he never 
recovered, and the Club was thus early deprived of his 
accomplished and genial co-operation in its projected work. 

For fome time after this the printing was fufpended, until it 
was refumed under the charge of the writer of this note as 
editor, and it has now been carried on to a termination, 
though not without many ferious difficulties and interruptions.

Introductory Note. 

It was foon found, for inflance, that the conftant references 
required to be made to the original Manufcript in Edinburgh for 
comparifon of proofs and checking of copy, &c, impofed a 
ferious tax upon the editor's time, till a way out of the difficulty 
was arranged through the great liberality of the Advocates' 
Library authorities, who allowed it to be transferred to the 
Town-Clerk's office in Glafgow, where, with ample provifion 
for fafe cuflody againft lofs or damage, it could at all times be 
acceffible for editorial purpofes. 

During the whole time that this part of the work was in 
progrefs the editor had the advantage of being able to confult the 
Depute Town-Clerk, Mr. Robert Renwick, in whofe room the 
Manufcript was always placed for examination, upon any obfcure 
paffages and doubtful readings which cropped up from day 
to day. 

When the text had been thus quite difpofed of there 
remained the confiderable illuflrative matter to be dealt with, 
and this was followed by the extenfive gloffary which involved 
much special work. In this latter the editor received valuable 
afliflance from the late Mr. David Donaldfon, the well-known 
and efleemed editor of the latefl edition of Jamiefon's Scottifh 
Dictionary, whofe recent death has been a diflinct lofs to 
Scottifh letters. 

It was thought that some facfimiles of parts of the Manufcript 
containing points of interefl might be given, and thofe felected 
will be found to have been chofen on this principle. 

The long delay which has occurred in the completion of the 
Hunterian Club edition of the Bannatyne Manufcript mufl have 
feverely tried the patience of the remaining members, as it has 
done that of the editor. For any fhare of it which he may be 
refponfible for, he has to beg their confideration on account of 
the very ferious burden of work and worry which has in con- 
nection with it so long reded on his moulders, and which he is 
now thankful to fay is finally difposed of.

MEMOIR 

OF 

GEORGE BANNATYNE. 



By Sir Walter Scott, Bart. 



THE pious care with which fome of our affociates have 
fearched out every particular which Time has fpared 
refpe&ing the honoured Patron under whofe name our In- 
ftitution is formed, has been materially aided by the dif- 
covery of George Bannatyne's " Memoriall Buik," in the 
poffeffion of his defcendant, Sir James Foulis of Woodhall, 
Baronet, who has obligingly lent it for that purpofe. The 
refult of the enquiry does not indeed throw much light on 
his perfonal charader, or the incidents of his life, but yet 
conveys to the Members of the Bannatyne Club 1 fome in- 
formation which cannot but be acceptable. It is interefting 
to learn, that the indefatigable preferver of Scottifh litera- 
ture was by birth, education, and fortune, above the middling 
clafs of fociety; and ftill of greater confequence to know, 
that in an age of inveterate feuds and bloody violence, the 
outrages of the time did not reach the lover of the Mufes, 
by whofe unwearied exertions fo much of the ancient 
Scottifh poetry has been preferved from oblivion. 

1 This Memoir and following " Extracts from the Memoriall Buik" are taken 
verbatim from "Memorials of George Bannatyne," 1 545-1608, printed for the 
Bannatyne Clnb, Edin., 1829.

ii Memoir of 

The father of our Patron was James Bannatyne of the 
Kirktown of Newtyld, near the village of Meigle, in Angus- 
fhire. He was a burgefs and writer in Edinburgh, and was 
probably the perfon alluded to by Robert Semple, — 

For men of law, I wait not quhair to take : 
James Bannatyne was anis a man of (kill. 1 

Of the defcent of this James, we know nothing with cer- 
tainty; but it has been afcertained by our venerable 
aflbciate Sir William MacLeod Bannatyne, chief of the 
name, that he was connected with the ancient family of 
the Bennauchtyne, more recently fpelled Bannantyne, of 
Camys, in the Ifle of Bute* The name was fometiraes 
fpelled Ballenden and Ballantyne. 

James Bannatyne of New Tyid had a numerous family 
by his wife, Katherine Tailliefer. She is recorded by her 
fon to have been " a woman of godly converfation, with 
whom her hufband led a godly, chriftian, and pleafant 
life." Their children were twenty-three in number. Had 
each, or any confiderable number of this large family been 
gifted with a moderate fliare of the tafte and perfeverance 
of our Patron George, the literature of Scotland would 
have been in a ftate of prefervation which might have been 
the envy of Europe. But the tafte and patience which 
fele&ed and executed the Bannatyne Manufcripts could 
only be indulged to one individual. The number of per- 
fons of condition whofe names occur as god-fathers and 
god-mothers to the numerous family of our Patron's father, 
atteft the refpe&ability of the parents. We may diftifiguifh

Fowlis of Collington, with a branch of which family George 
Bannatyne was afterwards connected, the relift of Hender- 
fon of Fordd, the fpoufe of Sir Niel Layng, Symon Piefton, 
and other names belonging to the landed gentry. It is 
perhaps fcarce worth while to notice, that Patrick Hepburae 
of Wauchtoo, a confidant of the too well known Earl of 
Bothwdi, 1 was in the bonds of fpiritual kindred with the 
family of our George Bannatyne, being god-father to his 
brother Patrick. 

George Bannatyne himfelf, the feventh child of his parents, 
was born on the 22nd day of February, 1545 years. His 
god-fathers were George Tailliefer, his maternal uncle, and 
William Fifchear, his coufin ; his god-mother Mawife Fifchear. 
He was bred up to trade, but does not appear to have been 
engaged in bufinefs in his own behalf early in life. Reverting 
to the death of his mother at the age of fifty-feven years, 
he adds, that fhe left alive behind her eleven children, of 
whom eight were (till under the paternal roof, and did not 
poffefs any independent means of livelihood. 

To this feclulion from a£tive life during his youth we owe 
the poffeffion of that rich collection of Scottifh Poetry 
which forms our Patron's title to our refpeft. We will

fpeak of it more at large hereafter; in the meantime it is 
fufficient to fay that it was compiled and tranfcribed in the 
year 1568, and muft have been a labour of love to the 
collector, fince he purfued it with an earned zeal which 
feems almoft miraculous. The volume, written in a veiy 
clofe hand, and containing near eight hundred pages, ap- 
pears to have occupied the tranfcriber only three months, 
an aflertion which we fhould have fcrupled to receive upon 
any other authority than his own. 

In 1572, George Bannatyne was provided in a tenement 
in the town of Leith by a gift from his father. He was 
then twenty-feven years, and probably about to enter on 
bufinefs on his own account But it was not until the 27th 
Oftober, 1587, that, being then in his thirty-third year, he 
was admitted in due and competent form to the privileges 
of a merchant and guild-brother in the city of Edinburgh. 

We have no means of knowing what branch of traffic 
George Bannatyne chiefly exercifed; it is probable that, as 
ufual in a Scottifh burgh, his commerce was general and 
mifcellaneous. We have reafon to know that it was fuc- 
cefsful, as we find him in a few years poffeffed of a confider- 
able capital, the time being confidered, which he employed 
to advantage in various money-lending tranfaftions. It 
muft not be forgot that the penal laws of the Catholic 
period pronounced all direft taking of intereft upon money, 
to be ufurious and illegal. Thefe denunciations did not 
decreafe the defire of the wealthy to derive fome profit from 
their capital, or diminifli the neceffity of the embarraffed 
landholder who wifhed to borrow money. The mutual 
intereft of the parties fuggefted various evafions of the

law, of which the moil common was, that the capitalift 
advanced to his debtor the fum wanted, as the price of a 
corresponding annuity, payable out of the lands and tene- 
ments of the debtor, which annuity was declared redeem- 
able upon the faid debtor repaying the fum advanced. The 
moneyed men of thofe days, therefore, imitated the condu6t

but they retained payment of an annuity as long as the 
debtor retained the ufe of their capital, which came much 
to the fame thing. A fpecies of tranfaftion introduced for 
the purpofe of evading the laws againft ufury was continued, 
as affording a convenient mode of fecuring the lender's 
money. 

Our refearches have discovered that Mr. George Banna- 
tyne had Sufficient funds to enter into various tranfa&ions 
of this kind, in the capacity of lender; and as we have no 
reafon to fuppofe that he profited unfairly by the neceflities 
of the other party, he cannot be blamed for having recourfe 
to the ordinary expedients, to avoid the penalties of an 
abfurd law, and accomplilh a fair tranfaction di&ated by 
mutual expediency. 

We do not find the exaft date of George Bannatyne's 
marriage, but it may have taken place about 1587, the term 
of his entering the community of guild-brothers. His fpoufe 
was Ifobel Mawchan, relift of Bailie William Nifbett, whom 
he has celebrated as a " godly, honeft, wife, virtuous, and 
true matron." Of her beauty he fays nothing, either be-

caufe there was no room for fpeaking of fuch vanities, or 
becaufe they would rank ill among the moral attributes 
with which his fober profe has invefted her. If the worthy 
rdi£l of Bailie William Nifbett was the lady of his love 
when, " in the time of his youth/' he colleded the works of 
the learned Makers of his day, and added to them his own 
effuflions, our patriarch had made up beforehand the omif- 
fions of graver eulogium, by telling us, that as the pale

The earlieft mention of their family is the birth of a daughter, 
Janet Bannatyne, born on the third of May, 1587, who fur- 
vived her parents; a fon, born fixth September, 1589, named 
James, died in childhood. From thefe circumftances, it may 
perhaps be inferred, that George Bannatyne's marriage took 
place about 1586.

of his fon; " of all men well beloved, and to no man hurtful 
or wrongeous, and ended his life by praiiing God with a 
penitent heart, and an allured hope of his mercy, through

an additional voucher for the general refpe&ability of the 
family. 

In 1 591, the aforefaid Mafter Thomas Bannatyne, Lord 
New Tyle, brother of George, and one of the Lords of the 
College of Juftice, died, at the age of fifty-one years, leaving 
a numerous family. In 1597 he was followed by James 
Bannatyne, another of George's brothers, who purfued his 
father's profeffion of a writer. The fame record of mortality 
announces, that on the 29th January, 1597, our compiler 
loft his only fon, James Bannatyne, a boy of between eight 
and nine years old; and that on the 27th of Auguft, 1603, 
he was deprived of his affectionate helpmate, Ifobel Maw- 
chan, at the age of fifty-feven. Her death is affectionately 
recorded by her hufhand. " She lived/' fays his memoran- 
dum, " a godly, honourable, and virtuous life, all her days; 
was a wife, honeft, and true matron, and departed in the 
Lord in a peaceful and godly manner." 

The remaining ftay of our compiler's old age was his 
daughter, and only furviving child, Jonet or Janet Baa- 
natyne. This young lady was married, on the ift of June, 
1603, to George Foulis of Woodhall and Ravelftoae, 
fecond ion of James Foulis of Colingtoun. It appears that, 
after his wife's death, George Bannatyne refided in £upily 
with his daughter. He mentions in his Memoranda, that 
in 1606 he was dwelling with his fon-in-law and daughter 
in Dreghorn, near Colingtoun, when a nurfe in the family 
caught the peftilence which was then raging. She died on 
the 26th day of Auguft in that year after two days' illnds.

viii Memoir of 

Heaven. George Bannatyne was at this time fixty-one 
years old; how much longer he continued to live we have 
not found means to afcertain, nor do we know by what 
fummons he was finally removed from the fcene. 1 But we 
have no reafon to doubt that the end of his life correfponded 
with its tenor, and that his death was peaceful and timely. 

This string of dates is all we have to record of our 
Patron's life. 8 But it is proper to take fome notice of the 
work to which he owes his celebrity, and for which we 
acknowledge our gratitude to his memory. 

It is feldom that the toils of the amanuenfis are in them- 
felves interefting, or that even while enjoying the advan- 
tages of the poor fcribe's labour, we are difpofed to allow 
him the merit of more than mere mechanical drudgery. But 
in the compilation of George Bannatyne's Manufcript there 
are particulars which rivet our attention on the writer, and 
raife him from an humble copyift into a national benefaftor. 

Bannatyne's Manufcript is in a folio form, containing 
upwards of eight hundred pages, very neatly and clofely 
written, and defigned, as has been fuppofed, to be fent to 
the prefs. The labour of compiling fo rich a collection 
was undertaken by the author during the time of peftilence 
in the year 1 568* when the dread of infeftion compelled

from the Teftament dative ad omijfa of his fpoufe Ifobel Mawchan, printed 
tin he Appendix, No. II. 

1 Our knowledge of thefe dates is chiefly derived from " The Tymes of the 
Nativities," &c, contained in the Extracts from Bannatyne's "Memoriall 
Buik " which follow this Memoir.

men to forfake their ufual employments, which could not be 
conduced without admitting the ordinary promifcuous inter- 
courfe between man and his kindred men. 

In this dreadful period, when hundreds, finding them- 
felves furrounded by danger and death, renounced all care 
fave that of felfifh precautions for their fafety, and all 
thoughts fave apprehenfions of infe&ion, George Bannatyne 
had the courageous energy to form and execute the plan of 
faving the literature of a whole nation; and, undifturbed by 
the univerfal mourning for the dead, and general fears of 
the living, to devote himfelf to the talk of collecting and 
recording the triumphs of human genius; — thus, amid the 
wreck of all that was mortal, employing himfelf in preferving 
the lays by which immortality is at once given to others, 
and obtained for the writer himfelf. His talk, he informs 
us, had its difficulties; for he complains that he had, even 
in his time, to contend with the difadvantage of copies old, 
maimed, and mutilated, and which long before our day 
mud, but for this faithful tranfcriber, have perifhed entirely. 
The very labour of procuring the originals of the works 
which he transcribed muft have been attended with much 
trouble and fome rifle, at a time when all the ufual intercourfe 
of life was fufpended, and when we can conceive that even 
fo fimple a circumftance as the borrowing or lending a book 
of ballads, was accompanied with fome doubt and apprehen- 
fion, and that probably the fufpe&ed volume was fubje&ed 
to fumigation, and the precautions praftifed in quarantine. 

As therefore, from the contents of the work in general, 
we may conclude our Patron to have been both a good 
judge and an energetic admirer of literature, we will not

perhaps be too fanciful in deeming him a man of calm 
courage and undaunted perfeverance, fince he could achieve 
fo heavy a labour at fo inaufpicious a period. 

In endeavouring to form an eftimate of his charafter, we 
naturally look to his literary efforts. That which we love 
we ufually ftrive to imitate; and we are not furprifed to find 
that George Bannatyne, the preferver of fo many valuable 
poems, was himfelf acquainted with the art of poetry. 
Amid the various examples which he has compiled of the 
talents of others, he has obliged the reader with two poems 
of his own. They are ballads " tuned to his miftrefs's eye- 
brow;" but even we, his children, cannot claim for them a 
high rank amongft the productions of the Scottifh Mufe, 
for the power of loving and admiring with difcrimination 
the poetry of others is very far from implying the higher 
faculties neceffary to produce it. The reader will, however, 
find thefe two fpecimens of our father George's amatory 
poetry in the Appendix, No. IV., 1 and may probably be of 
opinion that our Patron fliowed himfelf merciful in the 
fparing and moderate example which they afford of his 
poetical powers. The verfes are a firing of extravagant 
conceits, fetting forth his lady's beauties and his own de- 
fpair in a tone of frigid extravagance, which muft have 
aftonifhed Ifobel Mawchan, if to her they were addreffed. 
We are fomewhat ftartled to hear that the lady's locks alto- 
gether refembled a bufh burning in red flames, but without 
fmoke; and fcarce lefs fo at finding our Patriarch demanding 
for himfelf as dead, an inftant and hafty funeral, "becaufe 
Aftaeon had been flain by his own fell dogs;" fince the

George Bannatyne. xi 

pofition that George Bannatyne fhould be forthwith buried, 
becaufe Adseon was dead, feems to abroach to what the 
learned Partridge calls a non fequitur. Aftaeon, we fuppofe, 
brought Adonis into our Patron's head, for we find him 
next remonftrating with the boar for not flaying him, and 
calling as loudly for death as he had done for burial in the 
preceding ftanza. 

Oh, thundering Boar, in thy mod awful rage, 
Why wilt thou not me with thy tuflris rive? 

But our Members will probably themfelves apprehend an 
invafion of the thundering Boar, if we proceed any farther 
in this fubjeft. Our refpeft is not paid to George Banna- 
tyne as a poet, but as a friend and lover of poetry, and one 
to whom the Scottifh Mufes are eternally indebted, whether 
we confider his induftry, or the tafte by which it was directed. 
In the reign of James IV. and V. the fine arts, as they 
awakened in other countries, made fome progrefs in Scot- 
land alfo. Architecture and mufic were encouraged by both 
thofe accomplished fovereigns; and poetry, above all, feems 
to have been highly valued at the Scottifh court. The 
King of Scotland, who, in point of power, feems to have 
been little more than the firft baron of his kingdom, held a 
free and merry court, in which poetry and fatire feem to 
have had unlimited range, even where their (hafts glanced 
on royalty itfelf. The confequence of this general encourage- 
ment was the production of much poetry of various kinds, 
and concerning various perfons, which the narrow exertions 
of the Scottifli prefs could not convey to the public, or 
which, if printed at all, exifted only in limited editions, 
which foon funk to the rarity of manufcripts.

xii Memoir of 

There was, therefore, an ample mine out of which Banna- 
tyne made his compilation, with the intent, doubtlefs, of 
putting the Lays of the Makers out of the reach of oblivion, 
by fubjefting the colle&ion to the prefs. But the bloody 
wars of Queen Mary's time made that no period for literary 
adventure; and the tendency of the fubfequent age to 
polemical difcuffion difcouraged lighter and gayer ftudies. 
There is, therefore, little doubt that, had Bannatyne lived 
later than he did, or had he been a man of lefs tafte in 
fele&ing his materials, a great proportion of the poetry 
contained in his volume muft have been loft to pofterity; 
and if the ftock of northern literature had been diminifhed 
only by the lofs of fuch of Dunbar's pieces as Bannatyne's 
Manufcript contains, the damage to pofterity would have 
been infinite. 

This darling of the Scottish Mufes has been juftly raifed 
to a level with Chaucer by every judge of poetry, to whom 
his obfolete language has not rendered him unintelligible. 
In brilliancy of fancy, in force of description, in the power 
of conveying moral precepts with terfenefs, and marking 
leffons of life with concifenefs and energy, in quicknefs of 
fatire, and in poignancy of humour, the Northern Maker 
may boldly afpire to rival the Bard of Woodftock. In the 
pathetic, Dunbar is Chaucer's inferior, and accordingly in 
moft of his pieces he rather willies to inftruft the under- 
ftanding, or to amufe the fancy, than to affeft the heart 
It is with pleafure we underftand that an edition of the 
excellent poet, unrivalled by any which Scotland ever pro- 
duced, is foon to appear under the aufpices of our Secretary. x

George Bannatyne. xiii 

We (hall then be in pofleflion of what a correft text can 
give. But where is the Dryden to be found who is to 
tranflate, for the benefit of more modern times, the wifdom, 
the wit, the humour, which can now only be comprehended 
by the fcholar and antiquary? 

But although Dunbar be in himfelf a hoft, it is not for 
his pieces only that we are called to thank our Patron. 
The beautiful paftoral of Robin and Makyne, the works of 
Lyndefay, Scott, Henryfon, and other poets of the fixteenth 
century, have been alfo preferved by the care of George 
Bannatyne, who, if he had merely afled under the impatience 
arifing from want of employment, would perhaps have gone 
no farther for fubjefts of tranfcription than the "drafty 
rhimings," which gave fo much difpleafure to honeft Harry 
Bailly, mine Hoft of the Tabard. But he afpired at col- 
lecting and preferving that which was really worthy of pre- 
fervation, and his Manufcript rauft be confidered as com- 
prehending a copious fele&ion of the beft Scottifh poetry. 
The Manufcript, therefore, which bears his name, eminently 
deferving of our veneration as a monument of ancient times, 
a record of early literature and of ancient manners, is yet 
more worthy of refpeft, from the genius and talent dis- 
played by moil of the authors whofe works Bannatyne has 
tranfcribed and preferved. There is yet another point of 
view in which the colleftion may be regarded. Indepen- 
dent of the intrinfic merit of the poems colle&ed in Banna- 
tyne's manufcript, the infight which they afford refpe&ing 
the manners of Scotland at that early period, is as valuable 
to the hiftorian and antiquary, as their poetical merit renders 
them acceptable to readers of tafte and judgment.

xiv Memoir or 

At the beginning of the Manufcript is the following 
Addrefs by Bannatyne, detailing the general nature of the 
contents of the five parts or divifions under which the poems 
are claffed: — 

THE WRYTTAR TO THE REIDARIS. 1 

Ye reverend redans, thir worlds revolving richt, 
Gif ye get crymis, correct thame to your micht, 

And curfe Da dark that cunnyngly thame wrait, 
Bot blame me baldly brocht this buik till licht 
In tendered tyme, quhen knawlege was nocht bricht, 

Bot lait begun to lerne and till trarrflait

Quhais trewtb, as ftandis, yit haif I, fympill wicht,

Now ye haif heir this ilk buik fa provydit,

2. The nixt ar morale, grave, and als befyd it, 

3. Grand on gude counfale. The thrid, I will nocht hyd it, 
Ar blyith and glaid, maid for ouir coufollatioun ; 

4. The ferd of luve, and thair richt reformatioun ;

After the introdu£tory verfes is the following title — 

"Ane mod godlie, mirrie, and luftie rapfodie, 
maide be fundrie learned Scots poets, and 
written be George Bannatyne in the tyme 
of his youth.' ' 

The Firft part, "contenand ballattisof theoligie," extends 
to folio 43. — " Followis the Secound pairt of this buk, con- 
teneand verry fingular ballatis, full of wifdome and

diuers ancient Poyettis. 1568." Thefe "mirry and folatius 
confaittis," include Chrift's Kirk on the Grene, The Wyfe of 
Auchtermuchty, The Flyting of Dunbar and Kennedy, and 
many other pieces of broad humour, made, as Bannatyne 
expreffes it, " for ouir confollatioun." The moft confpicuous 
place, however, in this divifion, is occupied with Sir David 
Lyndfay's well-known Play, "The Satyre of the Three 
Eftates;" from which, on account of "the long procefs of 
the play," Bannatyne contented himfelf with tranfcribing 
detached portions, in the form of "fertane mirry Inter- 
ludis thairof, verry plefand, levand the grave mater thairof, 
becaws the famyne abvfe is weill reformit in Scotland, 
prayfit be God." 

Thefe "mirry ,, Interludes extend to folio 210; and on 
the next leaf, " Heir followis ballatis of luve, devydit in 
four partis. The firft ar fongis of luve; the fecound ar 
contemptis of luve and evill wemen; the thrid ar con* 
tempis of evill fals vicius men; and the fourt ar ballattis 
detefting of luve and lichery." — Bannatyne commences this 
Fourth part with the following appropriate addrefs: — 

To the Reidar. 

Heir haif ye, luvaris, ballattis at your will, 
How evir your natur dire&it is vntill ; 

Bot wald ye luve eftir my counialling, 

Luve firft your God aboif all vder thing; 
Nixt as your felf, your nichtbur beir gud will. 

Among thefe " Ballatis of Luve," for the preservation of 
which we arc indebted to our Patron, we may notice the 
love verfes of Alexander Scott, who has been ftyled " the 
Scottifh Anacreon."

On proceeding to folio 298, we read, " Here followis the 
Fyift pairt of this buik, contenyng the Fabillis of Efop, with 
diuerfs vthir fabillis and poeticall workis, maid and compyld 
be diuers lernit men, 1568." — This part of the manufcript 
is likewife introduced by an addrefs from the compiler 
" To the Redarr

The chief poems contained in this divifion are feveral of 
Henryfon's fables, with his exquifite paftoral of Robin and 
Makyne; the ancient allegorical poem of the Howlat; the 
Freirs of Berwick; Dunbar's Goldin Targe, and his Thriffill 
and the Rois; together with the Angular rhapfody of 
Colkelbie's Sow. On the laft leaf (folio 375) is inferted

lines of all the poems contained in the manufcript, with 
references to the works in which they have been feverally 
printed. 

After the death of George Bannatyne, the induftrious 
compiler, this Manufcript became the property of his grand- 
fon, George Foulis, of Ravelfton. His daughter, Jonet 
Bannatyne, died on the 31ft of March, 1631, and her 
hufband, George Foulis of Ravelfton, 1 (who was Matter of 
the King's Mint), on the 28th May, 1633. They lie buried 
on the weft fide of the Grey Friars Churchyard, where a 
very handfome tomb was erefted to their memory. The 
emblematical figures which adorn this monument, for the 
purpofe of attefting the wealth and refpe&ability of our 
Patron's defcendants, have been much mutilated; but the 
centre part, as reprefented in the accompanying engraving, 
is better preferved, and highly creditable to the ftate of the 
arts at that period ; and it is the more interefting, as con- 
taining portraits of George Foulis and Jonet Bannatyne. 2 

1 The old houfe of Ravelfton was built about the year 1622, and is orna- 
mented in various parts of the building with the ciphers of George Foulis and 
Jonet Bannatyne intertwined, and the ceiling of the principal room is painted 
with confiderable elegance. A view of the houfe, from a {ketch by James 
Skene, Efq., is given as a vignette at the end of this Memoir. From the pro* 
minent manner in which Jonet's name is uniformly exhibited in conjunction 
with her husband's, we may infer that, as an heirefs, fhe had inherited con- 
fiderable wealth from her father, George Bannatyne. 

8 The infcription is become illegible : Monteith, however, in his " Theater 
of Mortality, " copied it more than a century ago, and we infert it from his 
curious work : —

xviii Memoir of 

It only remains to obferve that, on the 20th of November, 
171 2, William Foulis of Woodhall (the great-grandfon of 
George Bannatyne 1 ) bellowed this Manufcript, the monu- 
ment of his anceftor's tafte and labours, upon the Honour- 
able Mr. William Carmichael of Skirling, advocate. Finally, 
in the year 1772, the liberality of John third Earl of Hynd- 
ford made this Corpus Poetarum Scotorwn public property, 
by depofiting it in the Library of the Faculty of Advocates. 

Such is all we have been able to learn of George Banna- 
tyne, and fuch the general hiftory of the compilation which 
he formed. It is a leffon to the Society of perfons who 
have ufed his name as a rallying word to mark their attach- 
ment to Scottifli literature, for it ferves to (how how much 
the patience and energy of o\ie individual, direfted by tafte 
w and good fenfe, was able to achieve for the prefervation of the 

poetry of a nation within the limited fpace of three months.

" Mortalitatis exuvias, in novae vitae fpem, hie depofuit, una cum charUfima 
Conjuge Joneta Bannatina; cum qua 29. annos vixit, in fumma concordia. 

"Reliquit filios fuperftites 6. totidemque filiasj pnemortuos 5. filios, et 
filiam, in regnum coelefte, ante ambulones habuit." — [Theater of Mortality, 
1704, 8vo, p. 32, and reprinted in Maitland's Hiftory of Edinburgh, folio, 

p. 197.] 

1 In Bannatyne's Manufcript " Memoriall Buik," a regifter has been kept of 
his grandchildren and their posterity, from which it appears that George 
Fowlis and Jonet Bannatyne had a family of eleven fons and five daughters. 
The godfathers of Janet Foulis, their eldeft daughter (born the 18th of April, 
1604), were Mr. Thomas Craig and Henry Nisbett; and of James, their eldeft 
fon (born 15th March, 1605), were (lays the writer) James Foulis of Colintoun, 
" my father," Sir James Foulis, " my brother," and Mr. James Bannatyne of 
Newtyld,. one of the commiflaries of Edinburgh. The godfathers of George, 
their fecond fon (born 6th April, 1606), were George Bannatyne, "my 
gudfather," and George Heriot, elder; his godmother, Dame Beatrix China - 
fyd, fpous to Sir Lewis Craig of Wrychtis Landis, one of the Lords of 
Seifion.

George Bannatyne. xix 

Befides affording afliftance to almoft every antiquary who 
has written upon the ancient hiftory of Scotland, " Banna- 
tyne* s Manufcript" has afforded exclufively materials for 
the collection by Allan Ramfay, called the Evergreen, in 
two little volumes, printed in the year 1724, and for a 
fele&ion of ancient Scottilh poetry, fubfequently publiftied 
by Sir David Dalrymple, Lord Hailes. 

Ramfay has left traces of his labours by fome lines 
written at the end of the Manufcript itfelf. 1 In his preface 
he praifes with truth and fpirit the works of the ancient 
Mailers, to whom he had become Editor. "I have ob- 
" ferved," he fays, " that readers of the beft and moft exquifite 
" difcernment frequently complain of our modern writings, 
" as filled with affedled delicacies and ftudied refinements, 
" which they would gladly exchange for that natural ftrength 
" of thought and fimplicity of ftile our forefathers praftifed; 
" to fuch, I hope, the following Colle&ion of Poems will not 
" be difpleafing. 

" When thefe good old Bards wrote, we had not yet made 
" ufe of imported trimming upon our cloaths, nor of foreign 
" embroidery in our writings. Their Poetry is the produft 

1 Thefe lines, dated July 6, 1726, are as follows : — " On the Ever Green's 
being gathered out of this Manufcript by Allan Ramfay, who had the loan of 
it from the Honourable Mr. William Carmichaell, advocat, brother-german to 
the Earl of Hynford. "— 

In Seventeen hundred, twenty-four, Fafhions of words and witt may change,

which fills his Ever Green. but fence is flill the fame, 

Thrice fifty and fax Towmonds neat, And will bleez bright to that clear mind, 

frae when it was colected; that loves the antient ftrains,

thro' Time they'll be refpected. to whom this Book pertains.

" different hue and fmell are mingled together in a beautiful 
" irregularity." — This paffage contains a deferved, and not 
an inelegant compliment, both to the merit of the ancient 
poets and the tafte of George Bannatyne, who feleCted and 
arranged their compofitions. 

In point of editorial accuracy, Ramfay took greater 
licenfe than would be now admitted. He never fcrupled 
altering the text where he thought he could make an im- 
provement, and very frequently he was of that opinion 
when it was a very miftaken one. This, however, was not 
the fault of honeft Allan, who, as obferved by Lord Hailes, 
was certainly a man of Angular natural genius, although 
incompetent to editing a collection of ancient Scottifh 
Poems, for want of the antiquarian lore effential to such a 
talk. He had announced his intention to publifh two ad- 
ditional volumes of the Evergreen, with lives and characters 
of the different Scottifh poets, but the fuccefs attending his 
firfl publication was probably not fufficient to encourage 
him to proceed in completing the defign. 

The publication of Lord Hailes is entitled "Ancient 
Scottifh Poems, publifhed from the Manufcript of George 
Bannatyne. 1568. Edinburgh, 1770," i2mo. It was de- 
figned to correft the many infidelities and inaccuracies of 
the Evergreen, and is accompanied with notes and a gloffary, 
valuable as coming from the pen of fo celebrated an anti- 
quary. Yet aliquando dortnitat — Lord Hailes, himfelf the 
moft accurate of men, after fpelling the name of our patron 
correCtly in the title-page, calls him in the firfl page of his 
preface "one Ballantine." Had he difcovered this mif- 
nomer in the work while in the bookfeller's hands, he

would certainly have cancelled the preface. The publi-

MEMOIR AND EXTRACTS. 



No. I. 



Note, connected with an account of his own 
family, by George Bannatyne, whofe Manufcript 
Collection of Scottifh Poems furnifhed part of its 
materials to Ramfays Evergreen, and a fubfequent 
publication by Lord Hailes. 

(Communicated by Sir William Macleod Bannatyne of Kaims.) 

In that account he dates himfelf to be fon of James Ban- 
natyne of the Kirktoun of Neutyle and Catherine Taillefer, 
and a younger brother of Thomas Bannatyne, who, by the 
death of his elder brother, Lawrence, under age, and with- 
out children, became the eldeft of his fons, fucceeded to 
him in his lands of Neutyle, and whom he ftates to have 
become a Senator of the College of Juftice. 

Agreeably to this flatement we find, in the Lift of the 
Lords of Seffion published by Lord Hailes, from a Manu- 
fcript Abridgment of the A&s of Sederunt, which had be- 
longed to Lord Pitmeddin, Mr. Thomas Ballenden's name 
entered as a Judge in 1577, in room of Auchinoul — and as 
deceafed 26th November, 1591 — the year in which George 
Bannatyne ftates Thomas to have died; and we find Andrew 
Wemyss, Myre-Cairne, named as a Judge on the deceafe of 
Newtyle — a circumftance which, with fome other entries in 
it, fhows that the writer of that Catalogue ufed the names

of Ballenden and Bannatyne indifferently for each other; 
and that the Thomas Ballenden of Neutyle, who is entered 
as becoming a Judge in 1577, and dying in 1591, is no 
other than Thomas, the elder brother of George Bannatyne. 

Refpe&ing James, their father, whom George ftates as 
proprietor of the Kirktoun of Neutyle, and as married to 
Catharine Taillefer, mother to Thomas, himfelf, and the 
other children mentioned in his account, there appear (in 
Mr. Thomfon's Regifter of the Great Seal) two charters 
obtained by him, the one ift June, 1548, Jacobo Bannatyne, 
burgenfi de Edinburgh, " fuperioritatis terarrum de Kin- 
clevin," Perthfhire; the other, 23d March, 1558, "Jacobo 
Bannatyne, burgenfi de Edinburgh, et Catharinae Taillefer 
fuae fponfae terrarum de Little Balchonre, et Torwathwy," 
Fyfefliire; which laft, by mentioning Catharine Taillefer as 
his wife, fhows this James Bannatyne, burgefs of Edinburgh, 
to have been no other than James Bannatyne of the Kirk- 
toun of Neutyle, father to Thomas, Lord Neutyle, and to 
George himfelf. 

There appear, alfo, in the Regifter of the Great Seal, 
1527, a charter to John Bannatyne, defigned Scribo figneti; 
and another, 1540, to James Bannatyne, alfo defigned 
Scribo figneti, of certain tenements in Edinburgh, though 
it is not known whether either of thefe perfons were con- 
nected with, or of the fame family with, James Bannatyne 
of the Kirkton of Neutyle, and his fons George and Thomas. 

However that may be, Thomas Bannatyne, Lord Neutyle, 
and brother of George, had a fon carrying the fame name 
with his grandfather, James Bannatyne of the Kirktoun of 
Neutyle, burgefs of Edinburgh, as appears from the Retour, 
No. 1073, vol. ii. f of Thomfon's Inquis. Retorn. Abbreviatio, 
dated 24th May, 1596, Perthftiire; being that of " Magifter 
Jacobus Bannatyne, Haeres Magiftri Thorns Bannatyne de 
Neutyle, unius Senatorum Collegii Juftitiae, patris, in Molen- 
dino de Migell, cum terris Molendinariis et aftriftis multuris."

Memoir and Extracts. xli 

Among the writings of the Bannatynes of Camys, who, 
as did alfo the Bannatynes of Corehoufe, originally fpelt 
their names Bannachtyne, there is a charter by James Ban- 
natyne, defigning himfelf fon of Alexander Bannatyne, 
buxgefs of Edinburgh, conveying to He&or Bannatyne, 
Elder of Camys, in liferent, and Ninian, Younger of Camys, 
his fon, in fee, the lands of Camys, and others in the Ifle of 
Bute; as alfo thofe of Bannatyne Yards, in Ayrfhire, as 
Handing in his perfon by an apprifing, apparently in truft 
for a particular purpofe, appearing from other parts of the 
family writings; and by which they are deftined, failing 
heirs of Ninian, fucceflively to Angus, Ronald, and Charles, 
the brothers of Heftor; and failing them, to James Banna- 
tyne the granter — a circumftance which points him out, at 
the date of that charter, 31ft July, 1577, to have been the 
neareft male relation of the family failing Heftor, his fon, 
and brothers; and makes it probable, that his father 
Alexander, defigned burgefs of Edinburgh, was himfelf an 
immediate fon, or perhaps a grandfon of the family; as, in 
a Crown-charter, 20th December, 1475, of their lands in 
Bute, Ayr, and Argylefhire, Robert, the grandfather of 
Heftor, therein defigned Robert de Bannatyne, appears to 
have had two brothers, Alexander the elder, and Walter 
the youngeft, of the firft of whom, Alexander, burgefs of 
Edinburgh, if not an immediate fon of the family, might be 
a defcendant; and as among the witneffes to the firft 
mentioned charter of James, the fon of Alexander, burgefs 
of Edinburgh, it is obfervable that we find, along with 
Alexander Bannatyne of Scarrol, proprietor of the lands of 
that name in Bute, and a well-known defcendant of the 
Karnes family, James Bannatyne of Kirktoun, evidently 
the father of George and Thomas, Lord Neutyle, that cir- 
cumftance, with the appearance of George having carried 
their armorial bearing, as delineated on the manufcript of 
his Poems, feemed to make it highly probable, that James

Bannatyne of Kirkton, or his Tons, were nearly conneAed 
with Alexander Bannatyne, alfo a burgefs of Edinburgh, 
and his fon James, and all of them equally defcended from 
the Karnes family. 

It would feem, however, that there now appears fome un- 
certainty as to what was the armorial bearings of George; 
either that the marking on the manufcript of his poems 1 
has been mifunder flood, or that he himfelf had erroneoufly 
marked it as three mullets and a bend, being the armorial 
bearing of Karnes; as, on the manufcript containing the 
account of his father's family, it is marked as a crofs fable 
in a field argent between four mullets, the armorial bearing 
of the Bannatynes of Corehoufe and Newhall; a circumftance 
which rather points at George and his brother Thomas being 
cadets of the Bannatynes of Corehoufe; of which it can be 
clearly fhown that the Auchinoul family, afterwards Lord 
Ballenden, though chufing to aflume a different armorial 
bearing, and a different mode of fpelling their name, were 
alfo defendants. 

However this might be, as it has been feen that an inter- 
course, marking the probability of a connexion with each 
other, took place between James Bannatyne of Kirktoun, 
the father of George and Thomas Lord Neutyle, and James, 
the fon of Alexander Burgefs of Edinburgh, and a near 
defcendant of the Bannatynes of Camys or Karnes; fo this 
laft would appear to have maintained a fimilar degree of 
intercourse with the Ballendens of Auchinoul — for a difpute 
which had arifen between Heftor Bannatyne of Karnes, and 
his brother Charles Bannatyne of Crafllagloan, being by a 
fubmiflion, 17th January, 1592, referred to the above-men- 
tioned James Bannatyne, therein defigned writer, and Mr. 
Patrick Bannatyne, his brother, Mr. Thomas Ballenden, 
defigned brother-german to Sir Lewis Ballenden of Auchi- 
nool, is named as overfman; and in the decreet-arbitral

which followed upon it, 8th February, 1592, we find among 
the wrtnefles Mr. Adam Ballenden, alfo brother to Sir 
Lewis. 

It may be further obferved, that while as both the families 
of Camys and Corehoufe originally fpelled their name Ban, 
or Benachtyne, and afterwards Bannatyne; in the firft of 
which forms (as to the family of Karnes) it frequently occurs 
in their early writings, and fo (as to that of Corehoufe) it 
appears in the Rolls of David the Second [Thomfon's Reg. 
Magni Sig. p. 28, art 47] ; both wore mullets in their arms, 
and both carried the fame creft and motto; circumftances 
which leave no doubt as to their being of the fame defcent. 

The Camys or Karnes family derive their defcent from 
Gilbert, the fon of Gilbert, who, under the designation of 
Gilbertus films Gilberti, obtained a charter of part of the 
family lands in the ifland of Bute, from Walter, Steward of 
Scotland, witneffed by Robertus Illuftriflimus Rex Scoriae; 
Edwardus, Dominus Gallovidiae, frater ejus, and feveral of 
the moft diftinguilhed barons of that period; and whofe fon 
John, who alfo obtained a charter from him of feveral other 
parts of the family lands, appears from entries in the 
Chamberlain Rolls, and other evidence, to have been 
chamberlain of Bute under the Steward. 

They had many branches in Bute and its neighbourhood, 
including the Bannatynes of Kelly in Renfrew and Ayr- 
fliires, and the Ballantines, now of Caftlehill, in the latter. 

They had been always confidered as a head family; and 
their title to be fo was ftrongly pointed out by the circum- 
ftance, that while all the Bannatynes of Bute carried the 
Gaelic patronymic of M'Amfyne, derived from an older 
anceftor than either of the Gilberts, the family of Karnes, as 
their head, carried that of M'Amfyne Mhtr; circumftances 
which, joined to the others already noticed, and particularly 
of their both having originally borne the name of Bannach- 
tyne, evidently one of Gaelic origin, much more likely to

be affumed by a family in Bute, where that language pre- 
vailed, than by one in Lanarkfhire, entitle its prefent repre- 
fentative to hold that the Karnes family was the general 
root of the name, and that of Corehoufe one of its branches, 
though certainly not the oldeft of them.

Sir John Bellenden of Auchinoul, knight, and Jonet Leyton, 
his fpoufe, on one part, and Henry Nifbet, burgefs of Edin-

by which, for the fum of 500 merks, paid by Henry Nifbet

The above Henry Nifbet was undoubtedly the anceftor 
of the knightly family of Nifbet of Dean, near Edinburgh, 
his elder reprefentatives,,and of their cadets, the Nifbets of 
Craigintinnie and Dirleton. Sir John Nifbet of Dirleton, 
Lord Advocate to Charles the Second, is well known. 
Thefe fafts can be proved by legal evidence, and are men- 
tioned by Nifbet in his Heraldry, vol. i., p. 315, new edition.

Nifbet, or rather the author of Hiftorical and Critical 
Remarks on Ragman Roll, obferves, " Nifbet of Dean is 
now the beft family of the name," [ib. vol. ii. Hift. and 
Critical Remarks, p. 42]; and that of the Nifbets of Dalzell, 
of the ancient family of the Nifbets of that ilk, " flowed the 
Nifbets of Dean, being defcended of Adam Nifbet, a fon of 
the Barons of Dalzell, who came to Edinburgh a merchant 
in King James the Fourth's time, as Sir Patrick Nifbet of 
Dean, Bail, informed the author of thefe remarks." — [Ib.p.48.] 
Adam was the father of Henry above mentioned. 

Nifbet, author of the Heraldry, again fays [article, Ex- 
terior Ornaments, vol. ii., p. 32, new edit], " that the family 
of Dean is the only family of the name in Scotland that 
has right, by confent, to reprefent the old original family of 
the name of Nifbet: fince the only lineal male reprefenter, 
the author of this Syftem, is like to go foon off the world, 
being an old man, and without iffue, male or female. On 
which account he had a right/ 1 he adds, "to the ancient 
fupporters of Nifbets of that ilk, which he had, indeed, pre- 
vioufly borne by authority." It is to be obferved that 
Nifbet, author of the Heraldry, was the undoubted chief of 
the name.

AN ACCOUNT OF THE CONTENTS 



OF 



THE BANNATYNE MANUSCRIPTS 



The Manufcript Colleftion of Poems, written by George 
BANNATYNE, in the year 1568, is, as dated in the preceding 
Memoir by Sir Walter Scott, a folio volumef containing 
upwards of 800 pages, 4O4 folios. That it was compiled 
or written at or about the fame period is evident from 
a careful examination, although a few fhort poems which 
belong to the end of the 16th, or early part of the 17th 
century, have been inferted on fome blank leaves of the 
volume, while two at leaft date from the beginning of the 
1 8th century. Thefe interpolations have been pointed out 
at the places where they occur in the Manufcript, and have 
been printed by themfelves in an Appendix at the end of 
the work. [See pages 1077 et feqq!\ They are alfo noted 
in the following Lift of Contents. 

The care beftowed by Bannatyne in making fo extenfive 
a colleftion of the remains of our early Makers, and his 
occafional addreffes to the reader, feem to denote that it 

* This " Account of the Contents of the Bannatyne Manufcript " was 
written for the " Memorials of George Bannatyne, 1545-1608, * which, edited 
by Dr. David Laing y was printed for the members of the Bannatyne Club, 
Edin., 1829. A number of neceflary alterations and additions have now been 
made. [Ed., 1883.] 

t The Manufcript recently has been inlaid and bound fplendidly in two 
volumes. [Laing, 1829.]

was intended for publication. We cannot, however, claim 
for him the merit of being the only or even the earlieft 
colle&or; and it is worthy of remark, that Sir Richard 
Maitland of Lethington, when advanced age had rendered 
him incapable of taking any a&ive part in public affairs, 
fhould have amufed himfelf about the fame time in a fimilar 
occupation ; and indeed the talk of collecting our popular 
literature may have been attempted by other individuals, 
although the refult of their labours has been lefs fortunate. 

The earlieft known collcdion of mifcellaneous Scotifh 
poetry worthy of notice, is a volume, in the Auchinleck 
Library, written by John ASLOAN about the year 1515 ; 
but, unfortunately, only a portion of the original volume 
has been preferved. In this portion, however, we find 
"The Buke of the Chefs," Henryfon's "Orpheus and 
Eurydice," "The Buke of the Howiat" by Holland, "The 
Buke of the Sevin Sages," and a fragment of " The Preiftis 
of Peblis," befides fome profe writings, including the valu- 
able contemporary Chronicle of the reign of James II. of 
Scotland. From a table of contents at the beginning of the 
volume, it appears originally to have confifted of 71 articles, 
36 of which have been preferved, but partially mutilated. 
Among the articles in the portion which is loft were the 
Bukes "of Ralf Coilzear," "of Sir Golagrus, and Sir 
Gawane," and "of Colkelby"; with "Mr. Robert Hender- 
(one's Doune on fut by Forth," and his "Fablis of Efope"; 
" The Buke of Curtafy and of Nurtur," " The Document of 
Sir Gilbert Hay"; and various other interesting "bukes" 
and "ballads." 

The Manufcript of Sir Richard Maitland is confeffedly 
one of great importance, without admitting with Pinkerton 
that it is "the chief treafure of ancient Scottifh poetry;" 
and it is matter of regret that it fhould not have been 
depofited in a place eafier of accefs for literary purpofes

than the Pepyfian Library, in Magdalene College, Cam- 
bridge. It is a fmall folio of 366 pages, and contains 
176 articles, enumerated by Mr. Pinkerton in his two 
volumes of Ancient Scottifh Poetry fele&ed from the 
Manufcript* in the year 1786. A very confiderable number 
of the poems (about one-third) are common to both collec- 
tions; thofe of moil value, peculiar to the Cambridge 
Manufcript, being "Peblis to the Play," "King Hart," by 
Bifliop Douglas; Dunbar's Tale of the "Twa Married 
Women and the Wedow;" "The Murning Maiden f and 
the original Poems by the venerable Collector himfelf, 
which are included in the publication referred to. 

Another Manufcript which may be here noticed is one 
lefs known, and of lefs extent in confequence of many 
leaves having been torn out of the middle of the volume. 
It is depofited with Bifhop More's MSS. in the Univeriity 
Library, Cambridge, and was written by one JOHN Ridpath, 
in the year 1623 ; and is chiefly valuable as containing 
feveral poems by Dunbar, not elfewhere preferved ; but in 
other refpefts it might be confidered as a tranfcript of part 
of Sir Richard Maitland's Manufcript 

As " Mr. Dunbar," and feveral other of our old poets, are 
under great obligations to Allan Ramfay, who was the firft 
to recommend them to public notice, we (hall here infert fome 
lines by him, which are not included in anyedition of hisworks. 
They were intended to have been prefixed to the Evergreen, 
and are worthy of prefervation, not fo much in regard to any 
merit which they poffefs, but as exprefling his fentiments 
refpefting the merits of fome of our early Makers : — 

* Ancient Scottiflx Poems, 2 vols., fmall 8vo, Lon., 1786, Appendix, pp. 
437-467.— There is alio a 4to MS. dated 1585, in the hand-writing of Mary 
Maitland, daughter of Sir Richard. It confifts of 96 pieces, chiefly tranfcripts 
from the folio MS. of Sir R. Maitland's own poems, and of others by con- 
temporary poets during the latter half of the 16th century.— [Laing, 1829.]

PREFATORY NOTE. 



THOUGH more than a century and a half ago the 
Bannatyne Manufcript was ftated to be " the moft 
ample and valuable collection of Scotifh Poetry that is 
now extant," though it fupplied the materials for Allan 
Ramfay's "Evergreen" in 1724, and though fele&ions 
from its folios are to be found in almoft every fubfequent 
colleftion of national poetry, it had never been rendered 
completely acceflible to ftudents of early Scottifh literature 
until it was tranfcribed literally and printed in full by the 
Hunterian Club of Glafgow. 

When, as editor of the work almoft from the outfet, I 
undertook at the requeft of the Council to prepare a 
Glofiary to accompany the print of the Manufcript iflued 
by the Club, I had not fully realifed the probable extent 
of fuch a compilation, nor the formidable amount of time 
and labour which its preparation would involve. As the 
printing of the Manufcript progreffed thefe difficulties 
became more and more apparent, and the burden of the 
work generally, accompanied by my want of health, and 
various matters connected with the management of the 
Club over which I had no control, more than once almoft 
led me to abandon the partly completed talk. 

Such faint-hearted thoughts did not, however, ultimately 
prevail, and by putting "a flout heart to a ftey brae" 
the work has now at laft been definitely brought to a 
conclufion. I am, therefore, not without hope that the 
following pages will prove my beft apology for whatever

vi Prefatory Note. 

may have been my (hare of the delay in their iffue, a delay 
which undoubtedly muft have ferioufly taxed the patience 
and forbearance of the members of the Hunterian Club. 

In the revifion of the word-flips and in the corre&ion 
of the proof-flieets of the Gloffary I have had the continued 
help of Mr. David Donaldfon, F.E.I.S., the well-known 
editor of Jamiefon's " Scottifh Di&ionary" and author of 
its indifpenfable "Supplement" of 1889, and I take this 
opportunity of warmly acknowledging his invaluable 
fervices to me both in advice and in dire£t work. 

In the cafe of every doubtful word reference has been 
made to the Bannatyne Manufcript itfelf at the Advocates' 
Library in Edinburgh, and I have to thank Mr. James T. 
Clark, Keeper of that inftitution, not only for affording 
me at all times the needful accefs to the Manufcript, but 
for his freely rendered and prompt affiftance on occafions 
when I could not perfonally be prefent. 

The plan and order which have been followed in the 
compilation and arrangement of this Gloffary may be now 
briefly ftated. 

In the definition of words a fevere repreflion has been 
exercifed, as conflderations of fpace forbade any latitude in 
that direction ; and for the fame reafon quotations of 
phrafes have been much curtailed. 

Derivations from Old French only have been given, 
but thefe have been quoted to an extent fufficient to (how, 
if proof were otherwife wanting, how extenfively that 
language had entered into the vernacular in Scotland 
during the 15th and 16th centuries. 

The firft occurrence of a word in the Manufcript is 
generally the one which has been quoted. It is probable, 
however, that fome of the definitions may be found to be 
more applicable to fubfequent ufes of the fame word,

Prefatory Note. vii 

although in fuch inftances it has not been poflible to 
give the additional references. 

The figures in every cafe refer to the page and line of 
the Hunterian Club text where each quoted word may be 
found, and they are followed by the author's name given 
in an abbreviated form. A lift of names of authors, real 
or affumed, is appended. 

A considerable number of crofs references have been 
introduced, with an occasional quotation from Jamiefon 
where his mode of fpelling a word colourably differs from 
its form in the Manufcript 

Where phrafes are inferted they ufually follow the 
particular word on account of which they have been 
quoted ; the preceding reference as a rule therefore will 
be found to apply to them. 

The very few words which it was found impoflible to 
define, or to which only a conje&ural glofs could be given, 
are followed by a mark of interrogation. 

For reafons of alphabetical arrangement a compound 
word or a phrafe has fometimes been inverted ; but in all 
fuch inftances the aftual firft word of the quotation has 
been printed with a capital. 

In the courfe of the extenfive and continuous revifion 
of the text, neceffitated by the preparation of the Gloffary, 
fome words omitted from the latter, and occaiional errors 
either in the Bannatyne Manufcript itfelf, or in the 
Hunterian Club print, have been noted, and thefe have 
been pointed out refpe&ively in the Gloffary or in the 
concluding Addendum.

FACSIMILES. 

PREFATORY NOTE. 

The following facfimiles— eleven in number — of portions of the 
Bannatyne Manufcript which have been selected by the editor 
to give as far as pofiible a fair reprefentation of the penmanftiip 
and flyle of this famous Collection of Scottilh Poetry were photo- 
lithographed from the originals and printed by Meflrs. George 
Waterflon & Son, of Edinburgh. 

From the fmall fpace available on the demy quarto page of 
the Hunterian Club iftues, and the large fize of the written folios 
of the Manufcript, it was found that only portions of the felected 
pieces could be reproduced, except in the cafes of Nos. III. and 
XI., which it was found pofiible to give in full by the ufe of 
double pages. 

Nos. I. and X. give the compiler's (George Bannatyne) own 
introductory and concluding flanzas ; No. VI. reproduces part of 
one of his poems, which contains a chronogram of his name; 
and in No. IX. will be found the concluding part of " Colkelbie 
Sow," beneath which is drawn a pen (ketch of the Bannatyne 
armorial bearings. 

Nos. III. and VII. are by Alexander Scott, the former a 
complete poem, while the latter (hows that the pen of the 
corrector is to be found to a considerable extent in some parts of 
the Manufcript. No. II. is an extract from "The Benner of 
Pietie," by "Archedene" Bellenden; No. IV. a part of "The 
Curling of Sir John RowH w ; No. V. one of the numerous 
anonymous pieces in the collection, " O, foly Hairt, fetterit in 
Fantdye"; and No. VIII. a portion of "The Houlate," by 
Sir Richard Holland. 

No. XL, " On the Ever Green's being gathered out of this 
Manufcript " is a piece by Allan Ramfay, which was written by 
the poet, prefumably at the time when he is known to have had 
the loan of the Manufcript in the year 1726, on a page originally 
left blank.
