    In 1641 Castle Forbes came under seige, with Lady Jane Lauder in residence. Her son attempted to relieve her, but was unsuccessful. Eventually the garrison and Lady Jane were allowed to leave for Scotland.
    ---
    Lady Jane, as she was called, wife of the first Sir Arthur, was a woman of extraordinary courage, prudence, and industry. She it was who built Castle Forbes in 1624, and defended it afterwards during a long siege. She managed and improved the family estate during the almost constant absence of her husband. It is not known when she dyed, but her memory will for ever live.
