  • Name: James Gifford
  • Suffix: of Sheriffhall 1
  • Sex: M
  • Residence: Sheriffhall, Dalkeith, Mid-Lothian, Scotland
  • Note:

    This would seem to be a later James Gifford of Sheriffhall:
    ?James Giffert whose name stands second in the " Books of Assumption of Thirds of Benefices" ? in connection with Newbottle Abbey, and this is the same James Giffert of Sheriffhall who is charged, along with a crowd of others, in 1565, as having been concerned in the slaughter of David Rizzio, his name standing the 15th in a list of somewhere about 60 or 70 men. He was summoned to appear before the Council, but of course did not do so, and was a few months later denounced a rebel. His son James Gifford, younger of Sheriffhall, appears in 1586 and 1587 to have held the Castle or Fortalice of Sheriffhall, and had to find caution that he would deliver it to Jeane Hoppringle, spouse of James Giffart, elder, "if it shall be found that he should do so."?
