John (born 1760)
Letters in the library of Castle Menzies record wages paid to servants. These include a John Fisher, butler at the castle. Could this have been the son of Alexander? Maybe not but they are interesting documents.
The note below, signed by John, states: 'Received from Sir Robert Menzies Bart the Sum of Sixteen pounds Sterling money being one whole years wages from martinmas 1782 to martinmas 1783. Received the above in full....' (Martinmas occurs on November 11th).
