re: James Wallace Dunlop Adair mc.1875 Nora Hamilton Adair (dau. of .............?) They had a son William Findlay Adair, b.21 Sep 1877.
Perhaps connected to : DUNLOP, Mrs Frances Anna (1730 — 1815), born Frances Anna WALLACE, eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Wallace of Craigie and Miss (...........?). In 1748, Frances Anna WALLACE m. John DUNLOP of Dunlop (1707 — 85); according to a tradition quoted by Wallace, she made a run away match from DUNSKEY HOUSE. (Was this Dunskey House in Ayr ?)
She, with her elderly husband, had 7 sons and 6 daughters. In 1761, on her mother's death, she fell heiress to the (Craigie ?) estate of Lochryan (Carrick / Ayrshire / Wigtownshire , Scotland).
When her father died in 1774, the estate of Craigie went to her eldest surviving son, Thomas Wallace, who took his father's surname (of DUNLOP); but Craigie Estate had to be sold in 1785. Mrs Dunlop's husband died 5 June 1785.
Was there a Miss Wallace DUNLOP who m. Mr. ADAIR ? Thankyou.
