Om boka

Purchase one of 1st World Library's "Classic Books" and help support our
free internet library of downloadable eBooks. From the thirteenth century
onwards, the name, under the various disguises of Stevinstoun, Stevensoun,
Stevensonne, Stenesone, and Stewinsoune, spread across Scotland from the mouth
of the Firth of Forth to the mouth of the Firth of Clyde. Four times at least
it occurs as a place-name. There is a parish of Stevenston in Cunningham; a
second place of the name in the Barony of Bothwell in Lanark; a third on Lyne,
above Drochil Castle; the fourth on the Tyne, near Traprain Law. Stevenson of
Stevenson (co. Lanark) swore fealty to Edward I in 1296, and the last of that
family died after the Restoration. Stevensons of Hirdmanshiels, in Midlothian,
rode in the Bishops' Raid of Aberlady, served as jurors, stood bail for
neighbours - Hunter of Polwood, for instance - and became extinct about the
same period, or possibly earlier. A Stevenson of Luthrie and another of
Pitroddie make their bows, give their names, and vanish. And by the year 1700
it does not appear that any acre of Scots land was vested in any
Stevenson.
