It is there stated that the founder of the family was Bartholomew, a noble Hungarian, who went to Scotland with Queen Margaret, A.D. 1067. He was much esteemed by King Malcolm Canemore, whose sister he married. In his capacity of Chamberlain to the Queen it was his duty to accompany Her Majesty in her journeys, and as there were no carriages in those days, she rode behind him upon a pillion. On one occasion, while fording a stream, the Queen slipped and nearly fell off, whereon Bartholomew cried out " Grip fast," to which Her Majesty replied, " Gin the buckle bide," there being only one buckle to the belt by which she held on. After this his exclamation was given as the family motto, and two more buckles were added to the colt on the pillion, and also the charge upon Bartholomew's arms, which had heretofore consisted of only one buckle on a bend.
