    The original executor of the will of John Macilvean of Grimmett (d 1740) had been Sir John Kennedy of Culzean who died in 1742. He had married in 1705 Jean, daughter of Captain Andrew Douglas and together they had 20 children!  Dame Jean Douglas, Lady Culzean, had to take over as executor.  She had been renting the parks at Turnberry from John and in the settlement was to get four years rent free.
