John Young in Dundee & Edinburgh (b 1497/8, d 31.08.1583)
m. (1541) Margaret Scrymgeour (dau of Walter Scrymgeour of Glasswell, sister of Henry)

  m. Elspeth (Isobel) Arbuthnott (dau of David Arbuthnott, 1st of Findowrie)
i. Peter Young of Auldbar (sold Easter Seton in 1670)
  'East Neuk' shows shows Peter as m. Isabel Ochterlony (## see here ##), dau of Ochterlony of Pittenweem (or Kellie), and having Robert (and Margaret, Lady Forbes, & Mrs Guthrie) with Robert m. Ann Graham and having David & Anne. That appears to confuse the generations whilst the other sources do not mention Robert.
  m. Anna Graham (a 1666, dau of Sir William Graham, 6th of Claverhouse)
  a. Elizabeth Young
  m. James Barclay, 2nd of Balmakewan
Elizabeth's maternal aunt Magdalen Graham was mother of the last Graham of Morphie. The estate of Morphie passed to Elizabeth's son William who changed his name to Grahame. As Youngs remained at Auldbar until 1743, when the estate was sold, this implies either that Peter Young had no son and (when he died) Auldbar passed to a nephew or other relation or that, if Peter did have a son, there was a family arrangement whereby Morphie did not pass to that son (or his heir) but to Elizabeth's heir.
