Notes for SIR JAMES DE RAMSEY:
Colonial Families of the United States
"This family is of a Scotch ancestry and claims descent from William Ramsey, who fought under Robert Bruce for the independence of Scotland, and was one of the nobles who subscribeded the celebrated memorial to the pope in 1320, vindicating the rights and liberties of Scotland . The Ramseys settled in Scotland in the time of David I. The name, it is claimed was originally "De Ramesey." Elgin is in Morayshire County, and the first of the name to settle there was a farrier from Forfarshire, which is clearly the ancestral seat. The head of the clan was th e Earl of Dalhousie, whose family name was Ramsey. It is unquestionable that the first Ramsey who came to Scotland held property in Huntindonshire, from which he took the name o f DeRamesey.That property was part of the estate belonging to the Honour of Huntingdon,which was in posession of David, Earl of Huntingdon, afterwards David I of Scotland. De Ramesey came to Scotland in the train of the Earl of Huntingdon, but retained his designation from his English estate. Soon after the year 1700, there was a large Scotch-Irish emigration to Pennsylvania , and among the emigrants was William Ramsey,who settled with his family in B ucks County, and who is said to have been of the lineage of Sir James De Ramesey, of Dalhousie, Scotland. He may have come from Ireland, as the family possess traditions of Irish locations. There was a Thomas Ramsey who died intestate in1714, and a James Ramsey who died in testate in 1720, both of Bucks County.
