Brodie, William (1799 -1873)
William Brodie, of Brodie Castle in Morayshire, was the eldest son of James Brodie, in the service of the Honourable East India Company, and his wife Anne, daughter of Colonel Storey. His father was drowned in a sailing accident at Madras, and he consequently inherited Brodie Castle on the death of his grandfather, James Brodie, in 1824. He was educated at King's College, Aberdeen, 1813 1816, and engaged the architect William Burn to enlarge Brodie Castle. He married, 27 November 1838, Elizabeth, third daughter of Colonel Hugh Baillie M.P., of Red Castle. Books from the library at Brodie were sold at Sotheby's 18 19 December 1962, 12 July 1971, 2 October 1978 and 18 December 1978. A manuscript catalogue of the library is in the National Library of Scotland.
