User ID: D760.
George married Catherine GORDON 3rd of Wardis and Kildrummy, daughter of Arthur GORDON 2nd of Wardis and Kildrummy and Unknown.1 (Catherine GORDON 3rd of Wardis and Kildrummy was born about 1725 and died on 5 February 1762 1.)
"Catherine Gordon succeeded her father under the provisions of the entail executed in 1740. She had married Captain the Hon. George Sempill, 2nd son of Hugh, 11th Lord Sempill, and uncle of the Hon. Sarah Sempill who married Sir William Forbes of Craigievar. (Douglas and Wood's Peerage.)
Her services run as follows : -
'Catherine Gordon of Wardhouse, wife of the Hon. Capt. G. Sempill, to her father Arthur G. of Wardhouse, h. of taillie and prov. Gen., S.H., 14 Feb. 1761,' and 'Catherine Gordon of Wardhouse, wife of Capt. G. (Gordon) Sempill to her father, Arthur of Wardhonse ; heirs general 28 Sept., Regd. 30 Sept. 1761.'
She had either no family, or at anyrate, left no surviving male issue, and it will be seen from the services of her successor that she lived but a short time after her succession, as she died on 5 February 1762 ; when, under the entail, the estate of Wardhouse went to the male descendant of Mary Gordon, only daughter of the entailer, viz., Catherine's cousin, Alexander Gordon IX. of Beldornie, who became IV. of Wardhouse also"
