Henry Glassford was the the second and eldest surviving son of John Glassford and Anne Nisbet, he matriculated in 1775 and was admitted to the Faculty of Advocates on the 9th of August 1785. On the 6th of October, 1775 he was admitted to the firm of Burgess + Guildbrother of Glasgow.
He was also Rector of the Glasgow University from 1805-1807 and in 1806 became MP for Dunbartonshire, a position he held until 1810 when he accepted the stewardship of the Manor of East Hendred, Bershire.
In 1806 Henry drew up and signed a sixteen page Deed of Entail (known in Scotland as a tailzie) which set out the conditions for the inheritance of Dougalston and his other estates. The 16 pages freely translate into the following
1. To a male heir of Henry's body or if he had none; 2. To his half brother James, and if or when he died; 3. To a male heir of James' body, and if he had none; 4. To a female heir of Henry's body, and if he had none; 5. To a female heir of James' body and if he had none; 6. To Jean (Jane) Gordon (nee Glassford) and if or when she died 7. To any male or female heir of Jean's body.
In addition, a significant condition was placed on any and all females that might inherit.
"The husbands of each of them as are female shall be holden and obligated immediately on their succession to the said lands and others, and in all time thereafter to bear and use the surname Glassford and the designation and arms of the Glassford of Dougalston"
Henry and his brother James never had any children and as a result the land eventually passed to the children of Jean (Glassford) Gordon and the Gordon-Glassford branch of the family was created. The majority of this branch use the Glassford surname only for day to day activities and only use the combined name for "legal" requirements.
