Leckie (Continued) [continued from page 15]
It is not known to whom Leckie in Stirlingshire had formerly belonged; but, from Robertson's printed Index of Charters, it appears that the half of this estate, nearest "Buchaun" was the private property of King Robert, and that he exchanged with the Earl of Lennox for Cardross in Dumbartonshire. A Charter by Robert Duke of Albany Regent, confirms on by John de Dolas of Estir Leky to Murdoch de Leky, of the lands of Estir Leky in the shire of Stirling. The original Charter is dated at Leky, 10th February 1406-7; witnesses, Duncan Earl of Levenax; John Gourly, and Alexander Post, burgesses of Stirling; Patricke Lindesay and John Naper domino de Kilmahew. The Charter of confirmation is dated in the first year of the Regency. Robertson's Index of Charters, "Robert Duke of Albany His Register." From a special retour, dated March 26th 1555, it appears that John Leckie of Leckie had been slain about seven years before in the battle of Pinkey, and that he was succeeded in the superiority at least of half of the lands and barony of Leckie next to the barony and lands of "Buchtquhan," by his son Walter. From another such writ dated January 11th 1688, we find mention made of George Moir of Leckie, heir of David Moir of Leckie his father. The house of Leckie gave a hospitable reception to Charles Edward Stewart, during the night of the 13th September 1745, when on his way to the south.
There are in the Charter Chest of Leckie two original Charters of the lands of Leckie, granted by King David Bruce to Malcolm the son of Duncan, ancestor of the Leckies of that Ilk annis 1353, 1357.
