William Maule of Panmure


(1st Baron Panmure of Brechin and Navar)

1771 - 1852

Laird. Second son of George Ramsay, 8th Earl of Dalhousie (d.1787), Maule inherited a part of the Panmure estates, the remainder having passed to his father. In 1831, he assumed the name Maule and was created Baron Panmure of Brechin and Navar. Maule was noted as a kindly laird and, having forgone the rents of his tenants during times of hardship, was rewarded when they erected the Panmure Testimonial in 1839 as an appreciation.

Maule was also a patron of the arts, including the musician Neil Gow (1727 - 1807). He was succeeded by his son, Fox Maule Ramsay (1801-74), who regained the Dalhousie title as the 11th Earl.
