Francis Charteris


1749 - 1808

Noble. Born in Edinburgh, the grandson of James, the 5th Earl of Wemyss (1699 - 1756), although the title was forfeited after his uncle, David Lord Elcho (1721 - 1787), had supported the Jacobites.

He died at Amisfield House (East Lothian) some seven months before the death of his father, also Francis Charteris (1723 - 1808).
