There appeared to be two surgeons to the Army.

One had a death notice in "Gentleman's Magazine" 9 Sep. 1794 :
p.869 At his lodgings in Charles St, St. James Squ, John Adair, esq., formerly surgeon-general to the Army in America, under Gen. Wolfe.
The other death notice in "Gentleman's Magazine" p.282, 16 Mar. 1790, Robert Adair, surgeon-gen. of the Army.
I should think that it would be highly likely that the former (John Adair, surgeon) would have been in the painting as his obit. said he had been "under Gen. Wolfe".
Perhaps they may have been brothers.
