MATILDA DINWIDDIE DEYARMOND (no information)
The above information was found in "Eagles Notes and Queries"
The various spellings of this name: DeYARMOND,DIARMOND &DEARMOND are all corruptions of a very old name. DIARMAID, the Achilles of Celtic legion,was killed by Aedh Dubh ( Mackay) and is buried in Glen Lonain, Argyllshire, the site of his grave being marked by a rude monolith, locally known as "Clach Dhiarmaid," It is 121/2 feet high with girth of over 13 feet. It is figured in the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland,LIX, page 82.
The above is from "The Surnames of Scotland" by George F. Black.
My interest in this name is that the family married into the Dinwiddies ,who are my ancestors.
I will put this on the Dinwiddie Family website as well.
I would love to hear from anyone with additional information on this family, especially those who married into the Stewarts and Dinwiddies.
