About Lady Jean Alexander

Lady Jean Alexander (b. 1606 - d. 1670), married first in 1623, Hugh Montgomery, the 2nd Viscount of the Ards (d. 1642) and second, Maj-Gen. Robert Munro, son of Obsdale Munro of Foulis; Jean, married, 3 August 1623, in Kensington Church, to Hugh, afterwards second Viscount Montgomery of the Ards, Ireland. He died at Newtown, Ireland, 15 November 1642, and she married, secondly, as his second wife, Major-General Robert Munro, second son of George Munro of Obsdale, and grandson of Robert Munro, fifteenth of Fowlis. He had a distinguished military career, and is supposed, together with Sir James Turner, to have afforded Scott a model for Dugald Dalgetty in the Legend of Montrose. His wife died in 1670, but he survived for ten years or more, as he is mentioned as alive in 1680 in the will of Major William Buchanan of the Botown, Ireland. He had no issue by his second wife.
