Re 1778 WILL (proved 1779 in Bladen CO, NC)of Dr. James Adairwherein he bequeathed to Robert Adair land in Ballymeena, Ireland and to Alexander Johnston in Ireland, and to dau. Suranna McTyer,etc. etc. Dr. James Adair, it is stated, was Surgeon on Staff of King George III. As Sir Robert (Robin who m. Lady Carolyn Kepple) Adair was also surgeon to a King, I deduce that they may have been brothers especially as Sir Robert (Robin) Adair was of Ballymena, Antrim, Ireland. Believe Robin died about 1790. Now to find Alexander Johnston in Ireland. Sir Robert (Robin) ADAIR was of Ballyrobin townland, Killead, Co. Antrim. The 1851 census still showed descendants of the Adair family living there - Robert Adair, 40 years and his family.
