III. The Prince in Duddingston ... and the Jenkinson Sisters

Meeting at The Prince's Cottage and Sheep Heid in Duddingston

One of the series of cameo re-enactments in 2008 arranged by the Trust saw the 'Jenkinson' sisters meet again with The Prince and the Prince hold his Council of War at The Sheep Heid in Duddingston. The events originally occured on September 19th 1745 and were re-enacted exactly 263 years later.

The Cottage in Duddingston, where the Prince spent the night, has retained its exterior as the Prince knew it but, as with Bankton House the interior would no longer be familiar!

Baron of Easter and Wester Duddingston on hand to host The Prince

Michael MacKenzie, infeft as Baron at Duddingston, was on hand to host the Prince's visit and after the War Council those attending dined at the Sheep Heid in very considerable style. The two sisters joined the Prince for luncheon having already been declared the two most beautiful women he had met since coming to Scotland and given gifts of a ring and a snuff box - as history tells. The two sisters subsequently nursed the mortally wounded Colonel Gardiner on September 21st/ 22nd back at the Tranent Manse where they were staying with their father, the Minister from Athelstaneford, at the time of the battle. That cameo was re-enacted in 2007.
