The Maule Family & Clan Ramsay, possible links to castles etc

Firstly, I'd like to apologise if I have posted in the wrong messageboard - I have tried to find the 'Surname' board, but being new to using messageboards it has so far eluded me - any pointers would be most useful!

Anyway, I believe that the Maule family are part of Clan Ramsay, and I was wondering if this is correct or how this actually occurred?

Incidentally, the Maule family were closely linked several castles in Scotland (the governors of Brechin Castle, owners of Kellie Castle, and a descendant being the current inhabitant of Edzell Castle), and therefore Clan Ramsay may possibly have links with these locations. The Maules were very active during the Jacobite Revolutions, in particular the 1715, going into exile with James VIII thereafter.

Kind regards
