(1) Note that this page covers the family of Fullarton of Fullarton in Perthshire. The Fullartons of Fullarton in Ayrshire are covered by Fullarton1. We hope to find the earlier generations of this family in due course.
(2) TSP reports that "The ancient family of Fullarton of that Ilk is believed to be descended from Galfridus de Foullertoun and Agnes his wife, on whom King REobert I conferred the lands of Fullarton and the hereditary office of King's Fowler within the shire of Forfar. Having parted with their original lands and acquired others on the border of Perthshire, they transferred the name and had their new possessions erected into the barony of Fullarton."

TSP reports that William "was served heir-general of George, Lord Spynie" and in 1784 formally claimed the title of Lord Spynie but had the claim rejected on the grounds that "the descent was limited to the heirs-male of Alexander, Lord Spynie, consequently that the claimant has no right to the said Peerage. This resolution has been generally regarded as erroneous". TCP (vol XII/I) contains an appendix (E) which refers to this matter.
