The family legend is that "in the reign of James III. of Scotland, the royal and baronial powers being nearly equal, repeated struggles took place between the nobles and the king. In one of these conflicts, the Douglas partisans having been victorious, an ancestor of the Naesmyths who fought under the royal standard sought refuge in a neighbouring smithy, and the smith disguised him as his hammersman. The Douglas pursuers, entering the smithy, observed with suspicion the disguised hammersman, who in his agitation struck a false blow with the sledge-hammer, whereupon one of the pursuers rushed at him. calling out, 'Ye're nae smith ; the disguised hammersman however overpowered his assailant, whilst the smith, armed with a red-hot iron bar, rallied the king's followers, headed by Naesmyth, and regained the day. The King thereupon knighted the Naesmyth, and bestowed upon him a grant of lands with armorial bearings and motto, "Not by knavery, but by bravery. " James Naesmyth, inventor of the steam hammer, is lineally descended from Naesmyth of Posso. The ist baronet, an eminent lawyer, was known as " The Deil o* Dawick," and the 2nd baronet sat as M.P. for Peeblesshire. NAPIER, Creation 1627, of Napier, Renfrewshire. Without blemish.
