  • Notes 
    • She may have been the aunt, or great-aunt of Jean Halyburton, who married James douglas, 16th of Cavers (dsp 1780)

      Extract from The Scottish Nation, by William Anderson, Vol2, 1867: Pitcur was inherited by Agatha Halyburton, wife of the fourteenth earl of Morton, whose second son, the Hon. Hamilton Douglas, became possessed of it, and according to the entail, assumed the name of Halyburton. On his death in 1784, it went to his aunt, Mary, countess of Aboyne, whose second son, Colonel the Hon. Douglas Gordon, afterwards Lord Douglas Gordon Halyburton, succeeded to it, and on his death in 1841, his nephew, Lord Frederick Gordon, became the proprietor, also taking the name of Halyburton, being the lineal male heir and representative of that ancient family.

      But note: Hamilton was most probably a grandson of Agatha, son of the 15th earl of Morton. His birth was in 1763, or later (he was a midshipman, so unlikly to have been any older).
