  General Notes:

"Among the numerous lands acquired by Laird James, was the estate of Ogstoun, which had been long the property of a family of the same name. In 1473 (26 October) Alexander Ogstoun of that ilk, had a licence under the privy seal of James III. to sell his lands of Ogstoun in the Lordship of Moray; reserving the orchard and chief chymrais thereof: and he accordingly, with consent of John Ogstoun his son and apparent heir, sold the lands of Ogstoun to James of Innes of that ilk and Margaret of Culan, his spouse, under reversion and with regress on payment of 300 merks on the high altar of the parish kirk of Elgin, after 40 days warning at the chymmis of Innes - 20 December, 1473. James Innes and his wife had seisin of Ogstoun, which was never redeemed, and either by them, or in the next generation, the Plewlands was added to it. Out of these lands and others, bought about 1630-40, from the Inneses of Drainie; and Ettles &c. from Innes of Pethnak, Sir R. Gordon, Tutor of Sutherland, formed his estate of Gordonstoun."
