CD: The Rulers of Strathspey, A History of the Lairds of Grant and Earls of Seafield - Earl of Cassillis. "The Chiefs of the Clan, the Lairds of Grant, who succeeded to the Earldom of Seafield and to the extensive lands of the Ogilvies, Earls of Findlater and Seafield, form the main subject of this work. The more important cadet families are, however, dealt with in Appendices." "The name Grant, Le Graunt, or…Grand, is of very frequent occurrence in early English documents, such as the Calendar of Charter Rolls, Catalogue of Ancient Deeds, Calendar of Patent Rolls, Calendar of Close Rolls, and also Calendar of Documents relating to Ireland…It seems exceedingly probable that the Grants came to Scotland from England on the return of Walter Bysset from exile, 1248-9." Traditional accounts of the Family of Grant assert that the Grants possessed lands in Stratherrick. This genealogy begins with Sir Laurence Le Grant, Sheriff of Inverness and ends with Sir James Ogilvie-Grant, Baronet, Eleventh Earl of Seafield, plus six appendices dealing with other branches of the Grant clan.
