  • Notes 
    • Sir Patrick, advocate, was created a Baronet in 1698. He appears by his legal knowledge to have made use of divers tricks to cheat his brother and nephew out of his estate, which he took possession of in 1698, and was made to disgorge only in 1709. Morison's Decisions, 12907; Fountainhall, ii. 6, 34. For a while he was described as of Renton. He continued, however, his vexatious proceedings till 1711, when the Court of Session got tired, and resolved to put an end to the litigation, but Sir Patrick, "diffident of the event, withdrew, and refused to appear." He then carried his cause by appeal to the House of Lords, where his procrastinating this plea during thirty years seems to have had due weight, and he got nothing by his iniquity. Ibid, 745. In 1712, the House of Lords decided that he had got a conveyance from his weak brother by fraud and circumvention, and that it was merely a trust for which he was to account. Robertson's Decisions fo the House of Lords. This worthy was employed professionally by the Duchess of Lauderdale, whom he wheedled out of a dwelling-house, orchards, and braes for his services, 244. He had also a lawsuit with Home of Linthill about a mill at Eyemouth, i. 442. In 1632, they went to law about the chickens, kain fowls being a kind of rent, 15427. In 1700, he tried to cheat the Earl of Hume of some money due on the abbey of Coldinghame, but failed. Fountainhall, ii. 106. In 1716, the title to the estate of Renton was disputed between Sir Patrick and Sir Robert Home. Morison's Decisions, 4068.
