Notes for WILLIAM RN-17658 (COL) ARMSTRONG: William Called 'Christie'sWill'. Also was called 'The Younger of Barngleish & later Younger ofLangholm, and Younger of Aughingi ll. Source-Brookeborough Parish Recordsin Fermanagh Co., Ireland Source-Armstrong House of Langholm Item 5.Source-Bo rder Exploits edit 1812 p. 292. It is well known that duringthe troubles of Charles I the Earl of Traquair continued unalterablyfixed in his attachment to his unfortunate master, in whose service hehazarded his person and improverished his estate. On one occasion hislordship dispatched Christie's Will to London upon business of thehighest import ance to his Majesty. But the task was a difficult one, asthe Parliamentary leaders used their utmost endeavors to prevent andcommunication between the king and his Scottish friends. Will arrived atLondon and delivered his papers in safety. In the meantime his embassyhad taken air, and orders were dispatched by the enemy to intercept him.

He passed skillfully from London to Carlisle, a distance of 265 miles,stopping at the latter place to refresh his horse, and then proceeded onhis journey. Crossing the bridge over the Eden just outside of Carlisle,he suddenly discovered Parliamentary soldiers springing up like magic atboth ends of the bridge. There was nothing left to do but take to thewater, which was in high flood. Facing down stream, he patted his horse'sneck, and with a touch of the spur gracefully cleared the parapet. Horseand rider were carried by the swift current to a place called theStanners, or Stanhouse, where he guided the horse up the wet bank butthey slipped back into the river. Quickly cutting the loop that held hislong wet cloak, he made for the bank again. With the noble effort theanimal brought his master to firm ground. The soldiers, for a time struckwith wonder, forgot to fire upon him. Two or three ran down the waterside intending to capture him, but Will pointed his wet pistol at them,which weapon, although useless, caused them to halt.

From the Eden he was chased to the Esk, which he swam . Gaining thefurther side, he wheeled around and in true B order style called out tohis pursuers to come through and drink with him. They declined, knowinghe was in the neighborhood of friends. After this taunt, he proceeded onthe journey and faithfully accomplished his mission. Source-W ilsonsTales of the Border edit. London vol. 2, p. 736, on perilous mission fromScotland to King Charles 1st, in London.

From Armstrong Clan Association News, dated April 1997, page 9.
--------------------------------------
There is a story told of Christie's Will, that when confined in JedburghJail, the Earl Traquair, who knew him well, got him released, in order tosend him to Edinburgh, to aid his Lordship in terminating a law plea,which he proposed doing by getting the Counsel opposed to him out of theway.

Christie's Will undertook to do this. He said he liked to do a 'pawkytrick,' and engaged to remove the opposing lawyer, whom he accordinglyinveigled away on the promise of giving him some 'flowing fees,' and whenhe succeeded in getting the advocate into his own free-booting domain ,he incarcerated him in a tower till Traquair gained hiss uit. This Earlwas perhaps Charles the First's friend, who fought with his son atPreston on behalf of his Sovereign , and fell into the hands of therebels, when they were committed to Warwick, and imprisoned like thecounsel, though for a much longer period, their captivity extending to four years. After the Earl's release and return, he suffere d extremepoverty. Soon after this Christie's Will joined the Army of King CharlesI.

William son of Christopher and grandson John Of Gilnockie left Scotlandin taking nephew Andrew with him and settleing in Northern Fermanugh Co.,Ireland, where he became the founder of a numerious family whose branchesflourished in those parts . This was some years after the death of QueenElizabeth.
