iii. George Maxwell
  The following connection is assumed and is certainly not definite although it can't be far wrong. BP1934 reports that Herbert Maxwell, son of George's brother William, married "his cousin, Margaret Maxwell, heiress of Monreith". It is presumed that her father was George. It is thought likely that she inherited Monreith through her mother who has not yet been identified.
