    • NOTES:
      Lieutenant Royal Navy, claimant for Marchmont Peerage.


      Alexander, R.N. sailed round the world with Captain Cook in his last voyage. In 1799, claimed the Earldom of Marchmont by descent, and voted as such at an election for representative peers; his situation was so much cominiserated that the peers subscribed 600 pounds to enable him to prosecute the claim before the house of Lords; but being a poor man, that sum was not sufficient to enable him to do so effectually. He was blind many years, and died in 1823. His claim was referred to the House of Lords in 1804.
      [From History of Dunbar Hume and Dundas from Drummond's Noble British Families, William Pickering, London 1846]
