Statement of Interest

John King (1606-1670) of Plewlands and his son William (1637-

1715) were factors to Gordonstoun; William became trading

partner with Sir Ludovic Gordon, propsered and purchased

land in Elgin including Newmill, and land that became (circa

1830) King Street, Elgin.

Plewlands appears on Kinnaird's map of Loch Spynie 1783.
