I failed to add the information as taken from the Irish Peerage. The Ochiltrees had two crowns, the Scottish and the Irish, We were blackballed against the Scottish but we were allowed to keep the Irish.
The American Ochiltrees could have assumed the surname as the Paradise Lost and Lorna Doone characters did...They were fleeing from the House of Hanover rule as the crown stated no Stewart would rule again in Scotland.
