  • Name James STODART 
    • He succeeded his father in his farm of Bilstane, on the estate of Dryden, the property of Count Lockhart WISHART, and from 1745, of Walston, Lanarkshire. He later moved to the farm of Walston Place, Lanarkshire, belonging to the same landlord. Also in 1745, he rode from Walston to Dryden to give information that a search was being made for George LOCKHART, eldest son of the Count, on a charge of high treason, and this timely warning enabled him to escape to France. Mr STODART was also factor to Count LOCKHART. Notes from 'Memoir of James Wyld of Gilston and his Family' by Robert Stodart WYLD LL.D.
