|TURING, of Foveran
TURING, of Foveran 1
Another name for TURING was Forbes, Miss.2
This daughter of the laird 'of Foverans' is sometimes listed as a member of the Forbes family. However it seems from records that the lairds of the time were of the Turing family: William Turing confirmed as successor to his father Gilbert in 1527, and similarly his son Robert around 1556. The Forbes of Foveran seem to be later, but this may not have been realised by those attributing the surname.
TURING married James GORDON 1st of Avochie, and of Auchanachie, son of William GORDON of Avochie and Margaret INNES. (James GORDON 1st of Avochie, and of Auchanachie was born about 1528.)
