Drummond, David, 3rd Lord Maderty (1610 -1692)

David Drummond, 3rd Lord Madderty, was the eldest son of John Drummond, 2nd Lord Madderty, and Margaret Leslie, third daughter of Patrick, 1st Lord Lindores. He married, firstly, Alison, daughter and coheir of John Creighton, of Haltoun and Luncardie. She died in March 1639, and he married secondly Beatrix, 6th and youngest daughter of John Graham, 4th Earl of Montrose. He had a surviving daughter by his first wife and three by his second. Imprisoned in 1645 in his father's lifetime for his loyalty to the crown, he was pardoned in 1647, subscribed the bond for securing the work of the reformation in 1651, and took his seat in the Scottish Parliament in the same year. After the Restoration, in 1666, he was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Marquess of Douglas's troop of horse. He is said, when sick, to have resigned his peerage to his younger brother, William, who in any case would have succeeded him. He died on the 20 January 1692, and left his library to be a public library. This library, the Innerpeffray Library, survives intact in a building on its original site overlooking a stretch of the River Earn, about 4 miles south east of Crieff in Perthshire. The stamps are all impressed on books printed after his death.
