The Family of Arbuthnott
Foreword by the Viscount of Arbuthnott

This "history" was compiled, at my request, by my sister the Hon. Mrs Bing. I asked her to try and draw together as many threads of the family story as she could to demonstrate how far we have travelled and what it is that draws us back to the place of our common origin. I felt it was appropriate to have such a background to our gathering this May. She has used the various references she mentions but, I believe, was inspired as much as anything by the many letters we have had from you all, welcoming this move to reinforce the best spirit or our inheritance. I hope you will like what she has done as much as I do and that her work will encourage you to help us compile an authoritative account of the story of every branch of our far flung family. Her account is deliberately aimed at stimulating such interest and we know that it is by no means exhaustive in any respect but we owe her a sincere debt of gratitude for her achievement.

The Family of Arbuthnott...

William Arbuthnot

Died 7th October 2021 at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London from Advanced Parkinson’s Disease.

My husband had Parkinson’s Disease for 23 years.

He was an incredible fighter and never ever suggested any aspect of self pity or complaint in the way he lived with his illness, quite the opposite. He was someone who just sought a solution to whatever he had set his mind to.

His children Lucy, Harry, Jack and I will miss him very much.

Louise Lady Arbuthnot of Kittybrewster
