According to the Traditional Tune Archive:
Moyra Cowie (The Life and Times of William Marshall, 1999), thinks Miss Katherine was a relation of Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo Castle, a grandson of the 4th Laird who forfeited his entire holdings after Culloden, and who was sustained for a time on the kindness of his tenantry and friends, while he lived in caves disguised as a beggar. Sir William was a banker who was able to purchase the forfeited estate of Achmeddan.
