Karl Marx may seem a tenuous link to the Wishart family, but please wait dear reader, and all will be revealed.

Jane (or Jenny) Wishart, born in 1742, the daughter of George Wishart, and sister of James Wishart, married Johan Ludwig, Baron von Westphalen, a German aristocrat and soldier. He was deported from Scotland under the Aliens Act, and she followed him to Germany. Her grand-daughter, Johanna Bertha Julia Jenny Westphalen married Karl Marx.
