The families of Scotland

Mackenzie, Sir George2008
The late 17th century saw a wave of interest in re-assessing many historical traditions. For various reasons, the gentry across Europe found themselves facing an uncertain future, and this contributed to a widespread interest in heraldry and genealogy. In Scotland, one of the foremost participants in these activities was Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh (1636-1691) who contributed to the controversy on the identity of the first 40 kings of Scots and also turned his attention to the histories of the leading families of Scotland, producing a work addressing the nobility and gentry as a whole.
