By his marriage with Miss Semple, heiress of Balgonie, East Lothian, the family acquired that estate. His son, Sir George Suttie of Balgonie, the youngest but only surviving of five sons, became the second baronet. This gentlemanís eldest son, Sir George, third baronet, a lieutenant-colonel in the army, and M.P. for Haddingtonshire, married Agnes, second daughter of William Grant, Esq. of Prestongrange, a lord of session, under the title of Lord Prestongrange, and with five daughters, had three sons. Sir James, the eldest son, born 10th May 1795, succeeded his father as fourth baronet, 26th November 1783. He was member in three parliaments for the county of Haddington, and in 1818, succeeded his aunt, Janet Grant, countess of Hyndford, as heir of line, in the estate of Prestongrange.
