Wonder if there is a connection between John Adair, Director of Hospital, Monckton's Expedition. Nov 2 1761 and Oct 18 1762. Robert Monckton was 2nd in command to James Wolfe in Quebec 1761, one month after he was made Gov. of NY. The picture of Wolfe at Quebec included Surgeon John Adair. John Adair of Kilternan (made famous in song) was made High Sheriff of co. Galway (source "Belfast Newsletter Index Database" #3641 Jan 25 1754. Wolfe family was connected with the Robert Adair (d.1737, father of above John Adair), through land transactions and possibly through the Goldsmith family. Monckton was Viscount Galway. Would this surgeon John Adair be of this family, perhaps living in Halifax or Canada at some stage ?
