    ---
    Sir Robert, twentieth chief was a privy councillor who represented Moray in Parliament was made a baronet of Nova Scotia by Charles the second in the year1625, which he later received at the Port of Garmouth which he founded in 1650.
    Although he was a prominent covenanter, he welcomed the uncrowned Charles the second at Garnoch in the year 1650, and raised a regiment to fight the royalist cause. Sir Robert Innes was responsible for the sale of Aberchirder estates but he was also the man who would build Innes House in 1640.

    ?Did take his Cancer of the Mouth January 1656.?
    ---
    The figures, evidently of the same man, presumably represent an actual laird of Innes, and no
    such beard would be worn after the Restoration. It must represent either Robert Innes, 19th of that Ilk (born c. 1564, d. 1605), or his son, Sir Robert Innes of that Ilk, 1st Bt. (born c. 1586, d. 17th November 1658), the former dying aged about 41 and the latter 73. Such a venerable beard indicates the latter, but a similarly patriarchal one, of suitably greyish colour, is indeed applied to Alexander, Earl of Kglinton (aetat 42) in the little miniature of him drawn in the great Indenture anent the White Horse 21th February 1630 (Memorials of the Montgomeries, ii., pi. at p. 288)
