  Research Notes:

BOGHOLE - THE FULL ENTRY REGARDING ADAM GORDON:

1. Adam, of Boghole, in the parish of Newmachar, by the first wife (Balbithan MS.). Half of Boghole had been owned in the sixteenth century by William Gordon, the illegitimate son of William Gordon, Bishop of Aberdeen (fourth son of Alexander, third Earl of Huntly) by Janet Knowles (Records of Aboyne, p. 90). William sold Boghole in 1562 to William Menzies. On June 26, 1608, Adam of Bogholl got sasine in the sunny half of Boghole. Bogholl, apparently ashamed of its uneuphonious name, ultimately transformed itself into Rosehall, and in 1732 was owned by the Cuthberts (Shires of Aberdeen and Banff, i., 236). Adam, "apparent of Creichie," witnessed a bond given by James Gordon of Lesmurdie (October 27, 1600), that Alexander Gordon of Lesmoir would not harm James Gordon of Knockspock. Adam (" son of George Gordon of Crichie ") was made a burgess of Dundee, April 24, 1601, the same time as Lord Huntly (A. H. Millar's Roll of Eminent Burgesses of Dundee, p. 91). Adam Gordon ("eldest son and apparent heir" of George Gordon, sometime of Crichie and now of Straloch) is mentioned in the Privy Council Register as having on June 12, 1602, given a bond for James Gordon, younger of Lesmoir, not to harm Christian Walker and Andrew Tailzeour in Greenmyre, and another bond for Alexander Gordon of Lesmoir and James, his son and apparent heir, not to harm the Marquis of Huntly's tenants or servants in the forests of Morven and Culblene or in the lands of Scurdargue and others. He was one of several Gordons, including William of u Saquhan " (Saphak ?), who granted a bond in 1606 to Patrick Gordon of Ruthven, the author of Britain's Distemper. On July 19, 1609, Paul Menzies of Kinmundy, as owner of the north half of Boghole, brought an action against Adam Gordon and his wife Agnes Keith, as owners of the south half (Abd. Sheriff Court Records, ii., 147). On August 28, 1616, " the justice be the mouth of Thomas Young, Dempster of Court, ordanit Adam Gordon of Boighall, as surety for a John Gordon, to be vnlawet in the pane of ffyve hundreth merkis for the nocht entrie " (Pitcairn's Criminal Trials, iii., 401). Adam Gordon of Boghoill got sasine in Saphock June 13, 1618, and on the sunny half of Boghoill June 10, 1619 (1618 ?). The latter sasine was apparently on his getting a new grant from Patrick, Bishop of Aberdeen, as on March 10, 1619, the King confirms a charter by Patrick, Bishop of Aberdeen, granting of new to Adam Gordon of Boighoill the sunny half of the lands of Boighoill, with half the mill, mill lands with croft and multures, with the multures and sequels of the whole barony of Bischopeschyre, on the north side of the Don'97 all resigned by the said Adam (Great Seal, December 3, 1619). In 1620 Adam Gordon of Boigholl raised an action for exhibition of the writs of Sapphak (Abd. Sheriff Court Records, ii., 127, 241). On July 16, 1620, Adam Gordon of Boighoill was cautioner for Harry Gordon of Haddo, who was accused of the slaughter of John Johnston, servant and near kinsman to the laird of Caskieben, was " unlawit for nocht entrie of the said Harie in the pane of 200 merkis " (Pitcairn's Criminal Trials). On January 13, 1620, Adam of Boghoill had sasine in Saphak and mill. On July 20, 1620, the King confirmed the charter of Adam Gordon of Boghill of which, by the consent of his brother, William Gordon of Saphak, and the latter's wife, Elizabeth Forbes, he sold the lands of Saphak and Fyvie to John Urquhart of Craigfintrie (Great Seal). Thomas Gordon of Broadland got sasine in Saphak, Dilspro and Mekill Goval April 19, 1621. Adam was dead by 1631 (Privy Council Register). A fragmentary (MS.) history of the Gordons, now in Aberdeen University Library, states that Patrick Gordon, who was Humanist and professor of Hebrew in King's College, Old Aberdeen, and died in 1695, was of "Bogholl". A John Gordon, of Bogholl, entered Douai College on July 3, 1623, aged 15, being sent (for syntax) from Paris on the recommendation of the Rector of the Scots College there; was sent back to Paris because of the plague and died on his way in August, 1626 (Scots Colleges, p19).
