From the Book of Eminent Burgesses of Dundee 1513 to 1885.

Andrew Gray, Son of Lord Gray - 28th October 1601.

 

ANDREW GRAY, SON OF PATRICK, LORD GRAY, IS GIVEN THE FREEDOM OF THE BURGH OF DUNDEE.

ANDREW GRAY was a younger son of that LORD GRAY whose name; is entered on the Burgess Roll under date 15th April, 1589. In his early days he seems to have been led into the commis¬sion of several treasonable actions through the influence of his elder brother, JAMES GRAY Of Dunninald, one of these crimes being the forcible seizing of the fortalice of Redcastle, in Lunan Bay, whilst occupied by LADY STEWART of Innermeith, in 1579 80. At that time the PROVOST and BAILIES of Dundee were charged, by a special letter from the KING, to besiege the castle and evict the unlawful occupants, which duty they performed effectually. ANDREW GRAY must have made his peace with them in the interim, as they received him into the number of the Burgesses of Dundee in 1601.
