    Laing, however (Vol. II. p. 128), mentions a seal of Sir William Murray of Tullibardine, attached to a deed, dated 1501, and which shows three mullets
    within a double tressure, and the same arms appear on a painting of the portrait of Sir John Murray, 1st Earl of Tullibardine (1593), so that the assumption of the royal tressure must have been earlier than Mr. Riddell or Mr. Bain supposed.
