About Sir George Nicolson, Lord Kemney

Biographical Summary

"Sir George Nicolson of Kemnay - was admitted advocate on the 27th July 1661, and nominated an Ordinary Lord in place of Sir George Gordon of Haddo, created Lord Chancellor 5th June 1682. His letter of nomination was presented to certain of the judges while acting as commissioners under the Earl of Argyll's forfeiture, on the 5th July following. As the Court was not then sitting, it was impossible to comply with the regulations of the Act of Sederunt 1674, regarding the admission of the Ordinary Lords; but the judges seeing that his qualification and ability to undergo that trial were sufficiently known to the said Lords, appointed two of their number to confer with him, and to report in the afternoon. Having, accordingly, reported that they had received abundant satisfaction, his Lordship was admitted. He contested the country of Aberdeen with Alexander Seton of Pitmedden, in 1665, but the commission in his favour was rejected by Parliament."
