Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (C)
Colquhoun of Tillliquhoun

Country: USA
I have questions that you may be able to find the answers for. When I read the article about the Clan Colquhoun, I noticed that it said that the Colquhoun of Tillliquhoun were extinct. According to the information that I have obtained in America. William Colquhoun/Cahoon was sent as an indentured servant to America after he became a prisoner in the battle of Dunbar. He was the son of Alexander Colquhoun the 17th of Colquhoun and 19th of Luss (the younger brother of John Colquhoun BT, who was exiled to Italy because he ran off with his wife's sister.)  William's older brother John was killed en route to America, but William lived and had sons. Therefore they should have been the rightful heirs of the Colquhoun land. William Colquhoun should have been the 18th of Colquhoun and 20th of Luss and a Baronet of Nova Scotia. If these facts are true then the direct descendent of this particular clan possibly is living in America and does not even know his status. Could you please check this information as it may be quite interesting. 
Thank you,
Charlotte Calhoun Spell
