Notes for Laird Duncan ANDERSON 6th Of Candacraig
Candacraig House and Estate 
In Strathdon, Aberdeenshire. The holders of Candacraig for many hundreds of years were the Andersons. The sixth Laird of Candacraig, Duncan Anderson, married Agnes Forbes, daughter of Alexander Forbes of Invernochty. When she died, he married another Forbes, Helen.

There was a George Forbes Anderson born in Strathdon in 1818. It can be assumed he too had some connection with the Forbes family. It was a Forbes estate proper for only three and a half decades, from 1866 to 1900 when the 13th laird of the Andersons, Alexander Anderson of Candacraig, later of Huntingdon, Quebec, Canada, sold it to Sir Charles Forbes of Newe. Sir Charles later sold it to A. F. Wallace when Forbes of Newe was in dire financial straits. The Wallaces were shooting-tenants before this. It has been in the hands of the Wallace Family since then. The main house was burnt in a 1954 fire and subsequently reconstructed.
