The Moodies, are descended from Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland (1274-1320), via the Stewart Kings James I to V, and then James V's son John the first Earl of Moray, and then via the daughter of the fourth Earl of Moray, Lady Margaret Stewart, who married Alexander the first Lord Duffus. (Ruvigny).
The Moodies were an ancient family and could claim to be able to trace their descent directly from Robert the Bruce as well as from the Kings of Norway. The first written record of the family seems to date from about 1470, when William Mudie appears in a list of Scottish bishops as Bishop of Caithness.
The non-conjectural pedigree of the Moodies (or Mudies) starts with another William, the first Laird of Melsetter, who was a man of some importance, being, among other things, Chamberlain in Orkney to Mary Queen of Scots. His lands were listed and confirmed by King James VI in 1591. At that time he disposed of his properties on the mainland of Scotland to consolidate his position in Orkney.
The story of the Moodies is an astonishing saga of feud, adventure and fighting, the decay of the familyís fortunes having started at least two decades before the Rising of 1745, during which Melsetter House was sacked by Jacobites. The eighth Laird, Benjamin, was serving on the mainland as an officer in the Hanoverian Army at the time and, for years after his return to Orkney, he spent most of his energies in wreaking a terrible revenge on surviving Orkney Jacobites, although he did conserve enough to enable him to father 13 children in subsequent years.
