WHICH DAY MAGISTER GEORGE GRAHAM OF CLAVERHOUSE, SON OF WILLIAM GRAHAM OF CLAVERIHOUSE, KNIGHT, IS MADE A BURGESS AND GUILD BROTHER OF DUNDEE.

The admission of SIR WILLIAM GRAHAM of Claverhouse to the Burgess ship of Dundee is recorded under date 25th July, 1603 (vide page 96). GEORGE GRAHAM was the elder of SIR WILLIAM'S two sons, and succeeded to the estate on the death of his father, in October, 1642. He did not long survive to enjoy it, as he expired in April, 1645, leaving one son, SIR WILLIAM GRAHAM , the father of the first and third VISCOUNTS DUNDEE. When JAMES VI. visited Scotland in 1616, GEORGE GRAHAM of Claverhouse was one of the Justices of the Peace in Forfarshire charged to make suitable preparation for the KING and Court whilst in Angus (Analecta Scotica, Vol. II, p. 328). Several of his descendants appear on the Burgess Roll.
