Earl of Abercorn, and d. 26 Nov. 1679, having had

William, his heir.

George, a General in the army. Governor of Edinburgh
Castle, and subsequently Commandi-'r-in-Chief in Scotland.
The Jacobites sent a flag of truce to the Castle of Edinburgh,
and threatened to burn Valleyfield if the castle was not
instantly surrendered. The gallant veteran replied, that in
that case he should direct His Majesty's cmisers to burn
down Wemyss Castle, on the coast of Fife, then the pro-
perty of the Earl of Wemyss, whose son. Lord Elcho, was a
general officer in the service of Prince Charles Edward.
General Preston, by his protracted defence of Edinburgh
Castle, and President Forbes, of Culloden, by his influence
with the Highland clans that took no part in the rebellion,
saved the Crown for the House of Hanover. General Pres-
ton paid off encumbrances on the estates of Valleyfield, and
thus acquired the right to entail the property (which he
duly executed) in favour of the heirs male and female of his
brother, Sir William, and his nephew, Sir George.
