Name: George or David Durie
Suffix: of that Ilk
Change Date: 12 SEP 2006
Despite the Leslie (Rothes) entry in BLG Scotland, which calls the 5th Earl?s father in law David, referring one to the Durie entry in BLG, that Durie entry does not have any David (or any laird marrying a Douglas, see below). The only George that would fit would be George Durie of Rossend Abbot (d 1575).
John Lundie of that ilk (son William d 1600) d 1605, is said to have married Margaret Durie, daughter of David Durie of Durie and Catherine Douglas, before 1578. She died before June 1605. If the 5th Earl of Rothes?s father in law was David rather than George, it would be a reasonable guess (but no more) that the 5th Earl of Rothes?s wife was either the same Margaret (if she was called Margaret) or her sister.
