The "Lee Penny" owned by the Lockhart family
The Lockhart family are descended from Sir Simon Loccard of the Lee, a fourteenth century
Scottish crusader who first obtained an amulet (the "Lee Penny") which, over the ensuing
centuries, became famous throughout Scotland, and which has been immortalised in literature
as the basis for Sir Walter Scott's "The Talisman," although that novel is set during the time
of Richard the Lionheart.
After the death of Robert I of Scotland (Robert the Bruce) in June 1329, Sir James Douglas
was given the task of carrying Robert's heart to the Holy Land for burial in the Holy Sepulchre
in Jerusalem, but while on his way there, he joined King Alfonso XI of Castile in a crusade
against the Moors in Granada in Spain, where Douglas was killed at the Battle of Teba on
25 August 1330. Douglas was accompanied by Sir Simon Loccard, who held the key to the
casket in which Douglas carried the late king's heart. This is reflected in the family motto of
the Lockharts - "Corda Serrata Pando" - "I open locked hearts" and also in the family name.
During the course of one of the battles in this campaign, Sir Simon captured a wealthy
Moorish emir. The emir's mother (or wife in other versions of the story) offered Sir Simon a
large sum of money to ransom him, and whilst counting out the ransom money, she dropped
what appeared to be a pebble. She was so anxious to pick it up that Sir Simon felt that the
pebble must be a valuable gem and demanded that it be added to the ransom.
The woman agreed and further explained that the stone possessed healing powers that would
cure all diseases known to man and beast. The stone is dark red in colour, and is set in a silver
groat (i.e. a 4 penny coin) minted during the reign of Edward I of England. According to the
emir's mother, the coin was to be dipped into water three times and swirled around, with the
water then being used to wash the diseased portion of the person or animal concerned. No
money was to be asked for or accepted from those seeking to be cured.
According to tradition, the amulet was frequently used to cure illness and disease. In 1629,
during an outbreak of plague amongst oxen in Newcastle, the amulet was said to have been
used to cure them, although the good folk of that town were required to deposit 6,000 to
ensure the amulet's safe return. On another occasion, it is related that Lady Baird of
Sauchtonhall, who had been bitten by a mad dog and was showing the symptoms of rabies,
was washed in water in which the amulet had been dipped, and made a complete recovery.
During this time, the local Presbyterians attempted to charge the current owner of the amulet
with sorcery, but their action failed because it was demonstrated that the use of the amulet
had not been accompanied by the speaking of any words which could be seen as being an
incantation.
As far as I am aware, the amulet remains in the possession of the Lockhart family.
Sir Charles Henry Augustus Frederick
Lockhart-Ross,9th baronet
Sir Charles succeeded to the baronetcy on the death of his father in 1883, when the new
baronet was only 11 years old.
According to a gossip column published in The Washington Post of 3 December 1901, "[Sir
Charles] comes from a family which is renowned for its eccentricity, and he distinguished
himself as soon as he came of age by instituting an extraordinary lawsuit against his widowed
mother for having, during his minority, spent more of the revenues of his estates upon
than she was entitled to by law or by the terms of the will. In her defense it must be said
that her only extravagances were in cases where he was concerned. While he was at school
at Eton, she furnished him with a magnificent ocean-going steam yacht, a large sailing yacht,
the most superbly appointed and biggest steam launch for river use on the Thames, a coach
and four, and heaven only knows what else besides. In fact, in all of the history of Eton,
extending over six centuries, there has never been a boy there who enjoyed such a command
of money as Charlie Ross.
"Of Sir Charles Ross' father it is told that one winter he became greatly irritated over the fact
that he could find nothing for the army of workmen on one of his Scotch estates to do owing
to the frost and snow. So at last, he hit on a plan. He gave out that he had lost a sixpence
somewhere in the grounds, and set the men to find it. They searched and searched among the
snow with no success. In the end, one of them, anxious to relieve himself and his fellow-
employees of so ridiculous a task, even at the sacrifice of a bit of silver, handed his master a
sixpence, and informed him that he had found the coin. Sir Charles instantly dismissed him for
lying, explaining that he had not really lost any money at all.
"His father [i.e. the 7th baronet] was still more odd, for he was so passionately fond of poultry
that he insisted on having all the rooms at Balnagowan Castle littered with straw so that he
might enjoy the pleasure of watching the chickens scratch and scrape among it. In his days
there was not a room in the castle in which was not apt to tread upon a sitting hen, or a
new laid egg, hidden among the straw, and one of the very first things that his successor was
obliged to do on succeeding to the property was to floor and wainscot afresh every room in
the castle."
Sir Lambton Loraine, 11th baronet
Sir Lambton pursued a naval career, eventually retiring as a Rear-Admiral. In 1873, he was in
command of the British warship 'Niobe' when he became a central figure of an incident which
has passed into history as the "Virginius Incident."
At the time of our story, Cuba had been under Spanish rule for over 350 years. During this
period, there were frequent rebellions against the authoritarian rule of the Spanish, culminating
in the 'Ten Year War' which occurred between 1868 and 1878. During this period, the Cuban
insurgents received help from American and British 'filibusters', who used the US-flagged
'Virginius' to transport men and guns to aid the rebels.
The 'Virginius' was a sidewheel steamer of around 500 tons which had previously been a
blockade-runner during the American Civil War. Because of its role in assisting the Cuban
rebels, the Spanish authorities viewed the 'Virginius' as being a pirate ship
On 23 October 1873, the 'Virginius' steamed out of Kingston, Jamaica, loaded with around 160
men. Many of these men were, however, mere passengers who had no idea of the alternative
purpose of the voyage. At Port-au-Prince in Haiti, 300 Remington rifles and 300,000 rounds of
ammunition were taken on board. The 'Virginius' then set sail for Cuba, but about six miles from
the Cuban coast. off present-day Guantanamo, it was intercepted by the Spanish warship
'Tornado'. Then began a desperate chase; the 'Virginius' steamed towards Jamaica, throwing
overboard all that could be spared (including the guns and ammunition) in order to lighten the
ship, but the 'Tornado' finally caught up with the fleeing 'Virginius' about 6 miles off the
Jamaican coast (in British territorial waters) and the captain of the 'Virginius' had no option
other than to surrender.
The 'Virginius' was towed by the 'Tornado' into the harbour of Santiago de Cuba, where they
arrived on 1 November 1873. There were immediate protests made by the American and British
authorities. The 'Virginius' was sailing (illegally) under the American flag, and had been captured
in British waters. The Spanish commandante refused to meet with the US and British consuls
and sentenced the vast majority of the 'Virginius's' complement to death on charges of
piracy. A number of men were sentenced to terms of imprisonment, ranging from 4 years to life.
The four ranking officers of the Cuban insurgents were executed by firing squad on 4 November
1873. On 7 November, another 37 were executed and a further 12 on 8 November.
News of the capture of the 'Virginius' and the subsequent executions reached Jamaica via a
clandestine message sent by a Cuban employee of the British Cable agency in Santiago de
Cuba. Since it was suspected that some members of the ship's crew were British and that the
ship had been captured in British waters, the 'Niobe' was sent to investigate the situation. The
'Niobe' arrived on 8 November and Sir Lambton immediately sent the following note to the
Spanish commandante :-
'I have no instructions from my government because they are unaware of what is happening;
but I assume the responsibility and am convinced that my conduct will be approved by Her
Britannic Majesty, because my actions are pro-humanity and pro-civilization. I demand that
you stop this dreadful butchery that is taking place here. I do not believe that I need to
explain what my actions will be in case my demand is not heeded.'
The commandante gave in to Sir Lambton's implied threat and immediately suspended any
further executions. Some sources say that Sir Lambton had threatened to sink all of the
shipping in the harbour and to bombard the town, but this appears to be a later embellishment,
and, in any event, gets the town wrong by stating it was Havana, rather than Santiago de
Cuba. The Americans were very grateful for Sir Lambton's intervention - he was given the
freedom of the city of New York and was presented with a gold brick from the miners of
Montana and a silver brick from the miners of Virginia City, Nevada.
