The Leith Hall estate owned by John Garrioch appears to have been in trusteeship for his creditors between 1752 and 1754.

1773 [EA] - 1776 [LA] → Owner
1790 [EA] - 1791 [LA] → Previous owner

1808 [EA] - 1808 [LA] → Previous owner
1817 [EA] - 1820 [LA] → Owner

It is not clear how Peter Reddie's connection shown in the 1817 and 1820 Slave Register entries with the Leith Hall estate arose, but he had married the daughter of James Noble of Greenock: John Noble had been a prior owner of the estate, dying at Greenock, and was possibly his wife's uncle.
