Patrick, assigned as son to John Grant, younger of Freuchie, is stated to have been a twin brother of John Grant, second of Freuchie, and is claimed as the ancestor of the older family of Grants of Ballindalloch.

Patrick Grant in Ballindalloch appears about 1520 as a prominent member of the Grant family. He acquired and held Ballindalloch from the Grants of Freuchie. Patrick Grant in Ballindalloch was one of the sureties for completion of the marriage between Donal Cameron, son of Ewen Allanson, Captain of Clan Cameron, and Agnes Grant, third daughter of of John Grant, second of freuchie, named in the Indenture 22nd October 1520.

On 17th February, 1529-30, he bought from Robert Stewart of Clawauch the lands of half the town (ville) of Urquhart and the lands of Cantraydown in the Barony of Clawauch (Clava) in the sheriffdon of Nairn.

There is a story related, to which, however, sir william Fraser give no credence, of Patrick Grant of Ballindalloch being tutor to his nephew, John Grant, second of Freuchie, during his minority, and usurping the family property, from which he is said to have been removed by John Grant’s grandfather, the Laird of Mackintosh.

This story is alluded to in the Kinrara MS. which says that William, then tutor, afterwards 13th Laird of Mackintosh, sent 200 men under the leadership of Dougall Maegillicallum with the Laird of Grant (then sixteen years of age) to recover his paternal heritage from his tutor, Grant of Ballindalloch, who, however, is called James. They accomplished their object, and on the way ther, John Mor Grant, ancestor of Glenmoriston, is said to have been “begotten by the Laird of Grant on a daughter of the Baron of Kincairn” (Kincardine) where the party were staying for the night. This William, tutor of Mackintosh, was a nephew of Murial Mackintosh, and therefore apparently a first cousin of the young Laird of Grant.

From a Commission given to John Grant, fourth of Freuchie, dated 8th June 1555, in which the words occur, “except so much as John Grant of Ballindalloch and his father occupy,” Patrick must have been still alive at that date.

It is not known whom he married.

He left issue, four sons and two daughters.

1. John Grant, first designed of Ballindalloch. …
