David Ogilvy, 4th Earl of Airlie

16th Dec 1785 - 20th Aug 1849

Claimant or beneficiary


Son of Walter Oglivy, and 4th [although also variously given as 6th and 9th] Earl of Airlie, a title which had ben disrupted by double attainder and which he was granted in 1826.

  1. Married (1) Clementina Drummond (d. 01/09/1835), daughter of Gavin Drummond and Clementina Graham 07/10/1812 (2) Margaret Bruce daughter of William Bruce of Heriots Row 15/11/1838.

  2. The Jamaica estate owned by the Earl and Countess of Airlie (given as Ferry Pen in the compensation records, but referred to as The Ferry in the Jamaica Almanacs) appears to have come into the Earl's family by his first marriage.  The Ferry is listed under the names of Receivers in the 1811 Jamaica Almanac but under Clementina Drummond in the 1812, 1816 and 1818 ('Clementine Drummond') Jamaica Almanacs.   It appears under Lord Oglivie or Oglivy between 1821 and 1824, then under what appears to be a series of attorneys thereafter.  Clementina Drummond was the sole heiress of her parents, and in turn her mother was the co-heiress of Alexander Graham of Duntroon or Duntrone, himself the heir of John 1st Viscount Dundee.
