Dunstan concisely describes his family as coming from good Scottish stock, having respectable moral qualities for Deptford. Dunstan mentions his practical Scottish heredity many times. This is somewhat of a paradox for him. While Dunstan uses his practical Scottish logic in his research of Catholic Saints, he is fascinated with the very impractical sense of mysticism around them.
