    Excerpt from list of the Sheriff-Clerks of Banffshire for the last three centuries drawn up from Mr. William Rose, Montcoffer, and other sources:
    1656 Robert Sharp, brother of the Archbishop, died 20th January, 1675- He mortified in 1675 1Bp 15s. 3 4/12d. to the minister of Deskford. " He married the heiress of Ordeans, a small farm in the neighbourhood of the manse of Deskford. Hence probably his liberality to the minister" (New Stat. Acc sub Deskford). He also mortified 500 merks to the kirk of Banff.

    William Rose Montcoffer (c.1790), MS Advovates' Library, Aberdeen.: " Robert Sharp of Ordens, Sheriff-Clerk of Banffshire was a brother of Archbishop Sharp not his father. I enclose receipt of a retour of the service of the other brother, Sir William Sharp of Stoniehill, as heir to his brother-german, the above Robert Sharp of Ordens, in those lands, wherein you'll find mention of the right by which he, Robert, acquired them, and a farther curious note that Ordens was in the parish of Deskford, and was astricted to the mill thereof. I have no knowledge if Robert Sharp ever resided at Ordens, but it is more than probable he had, when his public duties during spring and summer vacations permitted him to leave the Castle of Banff, his property and ordinary place of abode."

    ?the monument she erected in 1667 to the memory of her husband? But he died in 1675? Does Gordon Troup mean 1677?
