      In 1745 a Jacobite and Secretary to 4th Lord Forbes of Pitsligo, and hence excepted from the later amnesty granted by Parliament.1 Between 23 February 1746 and 8 March 1746 his house in the Guestrow, Aberdeen, was occupied and pillaged during his absence by government troops en route to Culloden.1 On 26 July 1746 the family estates were apparently granted to James Chalmers, printer in Aberdeen (probably a friend of the family), as thereafter the lands appear again in the name of his son, Robert.1 He escaped to Bordeaux.1
