Robert Farquharson of Aldairg or Allargue (a 1655)
BLG1952 identifies this Robert as of Crathie and his eldest son John as 1st of Allargue. However, information kindly provided by a contributor, Jack Blair, quoting from his book on the Farquharsons of Ravernie and the Broughdearg MSS, report him as being of Aldairg which appears to be the same place as Allargue. Rather than be different from BLG1952 and risk unnecessary confusion, we have retained BLG1952's numberings of the lairds of Allargue even though we could show Robert as the 1st.
