  Marriage Notes:

"He (John Irvine) married Catherine, daughter of Robert Fullerton of Dudwick, and had possessed the place and remnant of the estates of Drum for only a few months, when death removed him from the contempt of those who knew his disqualifications and the indignation of those who witnessed his proceedings. He died in 1737, and was buried in the little chapel at Drum.
With him ended the male line of the family of Irvine of Murthill, which had been intruded into the succession in prejudice to the direct heirs of the original grantee of Drum."
