About Elizabeth Dalrymple (Dundas)

Elizabeth Dundas, who succeeded to the bankrupt estates of her father in 1655. Craigston seems to have been lost to the family before this time and in 1663, Newliston was acquired by George Campbell an Edinburgh brewer, who had accumulated the whole debts burdening the estate. Elizabeth continued to live at Newliston and to add to her misfortunes, was made the subject of a forcible abduction in 1667. William Dundas, brother of James Dundas of Morton was the principal actor in the affair and he was held prisoner in the tollbooth of Edinburgh while the Privy Council made enquiries. Proceedings against William and his accomplices for attempted rape were later given up.

In 1669, Elizabeth Dundas married Sir John Dalrymple of Stair who purchased the lands of Newliston from George Campbell's son.

Lord Stair and Elizabeth Dundas had ten children. The estate of Newliston was sold in 1753 by John 5th Earl of Stair to Roger Hog, banker. Thomas Hog, son of Roger erected a new house on the estate about 1793.

In various records John Dundas is shown as James.
