Clan Murray of Edinburgh.

During the reign of one of the early Scottish kings, a robber was in the habit of plundering the country side. One of the Murrays’; ancestor of the first Duke of Athol, undertook to put a stop to the annoyance and as he was setting out, the King is reported to have said to him; “Furth Furtune” {Go} forth {good} fortune {attend you}, and {may you} fill the fetters {with your captive}”.

The crest of arms of the Clan Murray became a demi-man; wreathed about the head and loins holding in his dexter hand {right hand} a dagger; hilt and pommel and in his sinister hand {left hand} a key.

Duke of Athol title in the Peerage of Scotland was held by the head of the Clan Murray created by Queen Anne in 1703 with the Clan seat being Blair Castle. John Murray was the 4th Duke of Athol 1755 to 1830.
