DUFF, Patrick of Craigienach, Factor to Grant of Ballintomb 1
- Born: About 1674
- Marriage (1): GORDON, Jean
"...Alexander of Craigienach had two sons...Robert, the elder...; the younger, Patrick, was factor for Archibald Grant of Ballintomb, and appears frequently in the Records of the Presbytery of Aberlour, being described, in the years 1720, 1722, 1727, and 1730, as 'of Craigienach ' (sometimes spelt Craggenach). He was also an elder for the parish of Knockando. He and his wife, Jean Gordon, had at least three children : John Duff of Pitchaish, of whom many descendants are now living; another
son, who had a son Robert; and a daughter Margaret, only known to us from the following entry in the Presbytery Book of Elgin (1735) :' There are no Papists in Alves, but Jean Gordon, wife to Duff of Craigienach and Margaret Duff his daughter.' John of Pitchaish seems to have lived for many years on the farm of that name on the estate of Ballindalloch in Banffshire."
from Book of the Duffs
