Hunterston House was built by the 24th Laird of Hunterston, Eleonora and husband Robert. The last laird to live in Hunterston Castle was their son, Robert Caldwell Hunter. He became 25th Laird of Hunterston and his wife Christian MacKnight Crawfurd had two daughters. Their oldest Jane became the 26th Laird of Hunterston. Jane married July 8, 1862 and her husband was Lt.-Col. Gould Read Weston. The two names were combined as was custom in those days so now we have Hunter-Weston. Their son was a very famous Hunter. You will see I have posted often on Sir General Aylmer Gould 27th Laird of Hunterston Hunter-Weston.
