The Family of Arbuthnott
Foreword by the Viscount of Arbuthnott


This "history" was compiled, at my request, by my sister the Hon Mrs Christy Bing. I asked her to try and draw together as many threads of the family story as she could to demonstrate how far we have travelled and what it is that draws us back to the place of our common origin. I felt it was appropriate to have such a background to our gathering this May. She has used the various references she mentions but, I believe, was inspired as much as anything by the many letters we have had from you all, welcoming this move to reinforce the best spirit or our inheritance. I hope you will like what she has done as much as I do and that her work will encourage you to help us compile an authoritatice account of the story of every branch of our far flung family. Her account is deliberately aimed at stimulating such interest and we know that it is by no means exhaustive in any respect but we owe her a sincere debt of gratitude for her achievement.
