Epithetfamily of Adamton
ActivityThe Blairs were connected through marriage with the first families in the West of Scotland and can trace their lineage back over 800 years. The ancestor of the Blairs of Adamton was Sir John, second son of James Blair (fl 1368). The family flourished there until Katherin (d 1798), only daughter and heir of David and Ann Blair, married Sir William Maxwell, 4th Bart of Monteith, in 1776. She sold the lands of Adamton to Robert Reid.
