Notes for Laird Henry FORBES Of Logie
Sir John Forbes, 2nd of Tolquhon, married Anne, daughter of Stratton of Laurieston, by whom he had three sons:

Alexander, who succeeded
David of Essie, and
Henry of Logie, whence the first family of Thainstone

It seems probable that he had another son, Malcolm, who died without heirs, and may have been older than Alexander, who succeeded, for amongst the Tolquhon charters is one granted by William of Pantoun, Lord of Petmethan, and witnessed by James Lord Forbes, John Forbes of Tolquhon, knight (2nd Laird), John of Forbes, his eldest son, and Malcolm Forbes. The date is February 7th, 1451, shortly before the death of the first Laird of Tolquhon, and the last witness can hardly be his great grandson, Malcolm, the 4th Laird.

John, 2nd Laird, died before July 6th 1469.
