Excerpt from Memories of Sir Walter Scott Eleven years we now may tell, Since we have known each other well;Since, riding side by side, our handFirst drew the voluntary brand;And sure, through many a varied scene, Unkindness never came between. Marmion, Introduction to Canto IV. James Skene of Rubislaw, near Aberdeen, was born on the 7th March 1775. His father, a brilliant but erratic young barrister, died the year after his birth, and he was left to the guardianship of his mother, the heiress of the Jacobite Moirs of Stoneywood, a woman of character and eccentricity, who shocked her contemporaries by such extravagances as making her annual journey to Edinburgh on horseback in a scarlet riding-habit. By the early death of his elder brother he inherited Rubislaw at the age of sixteen, and his mother then removed him from the High School at Edinburgh and set him to find his way alone to Hanau in Germany to complete his education - no small feat for a boy of sixteen in the year of the Revolution.
