James Cruikshank the elder of Langley Park

1748 - 1830


Biography

Son of Donald Cruickshank (1716-1797) of Gorton in Strathspey. Owned half of Richmond, Mirton and Greenhill estates in St Vincent with his brother Patrick. Patrick died in 1797 and left his estates to James, subject to large legacies to his five daughters. James was living in St Vincent in 1780 and in 1792 bought (or was perhaps gifted) Langley Park in Angus, Scotland. He had two sons, James (1798-1842) and Patrick (q.v.).
