Leckies Lose the Barony

I will quote directly from the book:
"So it seems that John Leckie must have been a very active Covenanter before the Restoration. In the next year, 1663, he is appointed a Justice of the Peace within the Shire of Stirling, but it is probable that not many years afterwards he had to suffer with all other ultra Protestants and was finally ruined by the heavy fines imposed upon his estates so that they eventually fell into other hands......A Royal Charter, dated 12th June, 1668, was presented in favour of David Moir, elder, and his heirs, granting to them Easter Leckie and Shirgartane, with the half of Wester Leckie. An instrument of Sasine cover the same lands was dated 27th June of the same year. On July 12th, 1670, a Royal Charter by Charles II was granted in favour of David Moir elder and Marie Stewart, his spouse, in life rent.....Thus the lands of Leckie weere lost to the family of that name, and there no longer existed a Leckie of that Ilk."

The info I gave you on the sons of James Leckie and Janet Craig came from copies of the IGI. They start with Agnes. You might want to visit your local Mormon Family History Centre and check the IGI - they are now computerized and fairly easy to search.
