No, I’m not being pretentious – just saying. Family History
Follow on to Why the Queen Has Read This apparentl.y
A fun story (originally by Sir Walter Scott). The outcome being that the Howieson clan is honour-bound by decree to provide rest and hospitality to the reigning monarch whenever required. ‘Shortbread, anyone?’
And here I am. Doing it my way. Defending my Queen and any direct member of the Queen’s family from attack whenever necessary. (I do draw the line). But mainly hoping to cheer her up. Just saying.
The story of Jock Howieson, my Ancestor. The surname spelling changes in different versions, but we have documentation.
The author of that website, who has apparently copied the story almost verbatim, chooses to discount the truth of this particular story, but my Grandmother was visiting her Howieson family on that farm before I was born, according to her husband, my Grandfather. I believe that farm is no may no longer in the Howieson name,since I read the last of that family married a neighbour on an adjoining property?
