(As the next-male-in-the-Houston-line residing in Scotland, this Andrew HOUSTON may have acquired the lands of Cottreoch on the death of William Houston in America, although William's brother Anthony Houston was still alive. William's sisters also residing in Scotland appeared to inherit the
moveable goods and gear and there was a court-case about them. Perhaps there may have been a mortgage on the property and Andrew paid it off to William Houston's executor.)
