George Oliphant Kinloch

???? - 1775


Scottish soldier, slave-owner in Jamaica after inheritjng property in Jamaica and possibly the Kinloch estate in Strathmore, Scotland from his younger brother John Kinloch, 'who had purchased it [Kinloch] from the proceeds of a fortune made as a sugar planter in Jamaica, and had died in 1770.' His son George Kinloch MP (q.v.) was a radical politician who became MP for Dundee in the Reformed Parliament.


Charles Tennant, ‘Kinloch, George, of Kinloch (1775–1833)’, rev. H. C. G. Matthew, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [, accessed 10 June 2017]; Other sources suggest that George Kinloch's father George Oliphant Kinloch sold his Clashbenie estate in order to repurchase the Kinloch estate from his cousin William Kinloch. This second version appears to be sourced from Alex J. Warden Angus or Forfarshire, the land and people, descriptive and historical Vol. IV (1884) p. 341.
