Abstract

Grant, Ludovick, of that ilk (1650?–1716), politician and army officer, was the eldest son of James Grant (1616–1663), laird of Freuchie, and his wife, Lady Mary (d. 1662), only daughter of James Stewart, second earl of Murray (d. 1638). He was educated at St Andrews University. At the time of the death of his father in 1663, he was still under age and for a short period came under the guardianship of his uncle Lieutenant-Colonel Patrick Grant. On 23 May 1665 he was retoured heir to his father. In December 1671 (by contract dated 20 December) Grant married at Ballachastell his first wife, Janet, only child and heir of Alexander Brodie of Lethen; they had six sons and five daughters. Following Janet's death in 1697, he married, by contract dated 1 March 1701, Jean (d. 1734), daughter of Sir Patrick Houston and successively widow of Walter Dundas, second son of Walter Dundas, younger of that ilk, and then Richard Lockhart of Lee.
