   Another name for George was George Lord Gordon, Viscount Aboyne.3

  General Notes:

"This peerage of Aboyne was first created in 1626 in favour of John, the fifth son of the 1st Marquis of Huntly, and his heirs male. John Gordon, Viscount Aboyne and Melgum, was burnt at Frendraught Tower in 1630, leaving issue by his wife Sophia Hay, 5th daughter of Francis, Earl of Errol, an only daughter, so the peerage became extinct. Two years later his elder brother George, Lord Gordon, was created Viscount Aboyne, with special remainder to his second son James."
