Dates of existence


The Grange estate was at one time the 'home farm' of Arbroath Abbey. Separated in the fourteenth century, it was granted by Robert the Bruce to Sir William Durham, for services rendered as a knight. It passed from Durham to James Martine in the early eighteenth century, and from the latter to heirs David Watson and Anne Martine. By 1771, it was owned by Charles Hunter. In 1792, Thomas Kerr, a farmer in Pitskellie, bought the property from Charles Hunter. It subsequently passed to his son, David, followed by his grandson, Thomas. After the death of the second Thomas Kerr in 1879, the entire estate passed to Alexander Anderson, and from him to Thomas Anderson (died 15 March 1927).
