    Note. — "The Rev. Edward J. Stobo of Quebec, Canada, says in a letter that
    the name Stobo is confined to three counties in Scotland — Lanark, Peebles and
    Dumfries ; that he belongs to the Lanark section and a native of Glasgow. In
    Peebles there is a town of Stobo, Parish and Castle, and it is the opinion of Dr.
    Chalmers that the family took the name from the place. The etymology oi
    Stobo being "Stob," "hough" or "haugh," low land with a palisade or fence.
    A ' 'Stobie" person is one who is trustworthy. The western part of G-lasgow,
    on River Clyde, is built upon the estate and is called Stob-Cross or Stobo's
    Crossing. I can remember the old Mansion House, sold about 1760 by Major
    Robert Stobo, First Virginia Regiment. Major Robert Stobo was a gallant
    soldier and assisted in capturing Quebec, and was with "Washington at the sur-
    render of General Braddock. "

    It seems that the Stobos of Carolina were then of the Peebleshire line, and,
    though related to others of the name, were a separate branch.
