  • Notes 
    • George received from his father, the estate of Culrain in the parish of Kincardine, and Culcairn in the parish of Rosskeen. He lived in the mansion house of Culcairn.

      His first wife was the daughter of Lodovic Dunbar of Grange. His second wife was the daughter of Sir John Cunningham of Enterkin. His third wife was the daughter of Hugh Wallace of Inglistown. He only had children by his first two wives.

      George served as Commissioner of Supply for Ross or Sutherland in 1690, 1695 and 1704.

      George was one of "the considerable persons of the shires of Ross and Sutherland," who signed an address to King George I in December, 1714, imploring his Royal mercy for Simon Lord Lovat on his return from France at the instigation of Major James Fraser of Castleleathers.

      He died in Dec 1725 (ref. (1)) or Dec 1724 (ref. (2)).
