  General Notes:

"His birthplace was at Aldourie farmhouse, which was beautifully situated on a wooded slope stretching down to the southeastern shore of Loch Ness. His mother had gone to stay there with her parents during the troubles of the
time. He was the third child, two daughters having died in infancy. His father was then in the camp of Prince Charles Edward. A short time before the battle of Culloden, Alexander Grant, being in the neighbourhood of Aldourie, went thither for the christening of his little son, accompanied by thirty of his comrades. A weird scene took place on this occasion. They named the child Charles after the Prince; and, drawing their swords, they crossed and clashed them over his cradle, thereby enlisting him in the service of Charles Edward Stuart; then, in token of fealty to his supposed
sovereign, each enthusiastic warrior took the child's hand, and made it clasp the hilt of his sword with its baby fingers.
