He also held the degree of F.S.A. of Scotland of which he was always very proud. Mr. Macfarlane- Grieve bought Impington Park shortly before joining Clare College.

He was, however, an active member of the County Bench, being created a magistrate in 1903. It was only a fortnight ago since deceased’s eldest son, Lieut. A. R. Macfarlane-Grieve of the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, was killed in action (March 17) and he also lost his daughter recently. He leaves a widow and three sons, all holding commissions in the Army. (Cambridge Press)
