Thomas Graham, fourth son of William Graham of Airth and his wife Anne Stirling. Succeeded to the estates of his father in Airth after the death of his eldest brother James in 1805. Succeeded to Strowan in Perthshire and Ardoch estate in St Ann, Jamaica, in trust on the death of his uncle General Sir Thomas Stirling in 1808. Married Caroline Mary, only daughter of Major James Home of the Blackadder family, 09/02/1807. When his uncle wrote his trust settlement in 1804, he described Thomas as Captain of the Windham, East Indiaman. Thomas Graham appears to have sold the estate c. 1825-1826, possibly subject to annuities or legacies to other heirs of Charles Stirling.

William Fraser, The Stirlings of Keir, and their family papers (1857) pp. 122-123 (via Googlebooks); according to William Fraser, and apparently correct, Thomas Graham added Stirling to his name: other sources suggest that his son Thomas James Graham-Stirling took the additional name himself; will of General Sir Thomas Stirling, PROB 11/1487/70.

PROB 11/1882/171
