    The Preston Genealogy site implies Susannha is the mother of David?s three children, but cracroftspeerage.co.uk re Colville of Culross, Lord (S, 1604), says;

    The direct succession of the Prestons ended in 1639 with the death of Robert, Sir Simon?s grandson; and the next laird, David, one of the Whitehill branch, served heir with the remote connection of pronepotis trinepotis tritavi. His son George sold the barony of Craigmillar in 1660 to Sir John Gilmour.
