      Name also shown as John Logie. However, James was correct.

      This name is often confused with Logan, but appears to be a quite separate territorial family, and the heraldry of the two names is quite different. Wauter de Logie of Fife appears on the Ragman Roll submitted to Edward I of England in 1296. Sir John of Logy is mentioned in Sir David Dalrymple's "Annals of Scotland" (published in 1819) as one of the nobles who conspired with Edward II of England and the Earl of Warenne in their invasion of Scotland in 1320. The arms given by Nisbet for Logie of that Ilk are ancient in form but they were never subsequently recorded in the Lyon Court registers.
