From the Book of Eminent Burgesses of Dundee 1513 to 1885.

Professor James Duncan, 23rd September 1721

 

THE SAID DAY MAGISTER JAMES DUNCAN, PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN ST SALVATOR'S COLLEGE IN ST ANDREWS, WAS ADMITTED BURGESS AND GUILD BROTHER, BY THE PRIVILEGE OF THE DECEAST ALEXANDER DUNCAN OF LUNDIE, HIS FATHER.


JAMES DUNCAN was another of the sons of the first (DUNCAN) LAIRD OF LUNDIE, whose name is omitted from the family genealogy; but this entry not only shows his relationship, but also confirms the statement that his father died in 1719 (vide above).
