bullet  General Notes:

John Carruthers, fourth Laird of Dormont, married probably in 1668/9 firstly Susanna, only daughter and heir of the deceased John Maxwell of Collignaw and relict of Robert Maxwell, eldest son to John Maxwell of Castle milk. She must have been a considerable heiress, for on January 18, 1669, as heir to her grandfather, John Maxwell of Collignaw, she infeft John
Carruthers, then younger of Dormont, apparently in marriage (though he is not described as her husband), in a number of lands in the Stewartry. Susanna died in 1677, leaving an only daughter Janet Carruthers, who was served as heir general to her mother in 1705. Her father gave a discharge for a wadset on the lands of Colli gnaw in 1699 under decreet at instance of Lady Mary Maxwell. Janet married firstly Alexander Johnstone of Elshieshields, as his second wife, and secondly at some date prior to 1706, James Maxwell, younger of Barncleuch . 2424
