Elliot (Glasgow)

David and William Elliot were brothers. David made his will in 1784, describing himself as 'merchant in Glasgow but late of the Minories [London]' [PROB 11/1383/282]. He left his Windsor Castle estate of 500 acres on the sea coast of the River Demerary and his share of the Glasgow estate, also of 500 acres, on the West side of the River Demerary, and the money owed him by his brother William Elliot of Guiana [sic], in trust to meet his marriage settlement and then for his eldest son Alexander and daughters Susanna and Marion.

David has married, in 1779, Susanna, daughter of the Glasgow tobacco merchant Robert Bogle of Shettleston.
