Dr.George Wishart

was born in 1599, the elder son of Thomas Wishart of Logie-Wishart, Forfarshire. He is said to have studied at the University of Edinburgh, but may have completed his studies at St. Salvator’s College, University of St. Andrews as there is a record of a George Wishart who graduated there in 1613. On 26th August 1624 he was presented by James VI at the parish of Monifieth, Forfarshire and ordained at Dairsie by Archbishop John Spottiswood in 1625 whereupon he became the minister at Monifieth. In 1626 he moved to St. Andrews as second charge, and it has been conjectured that is was there that he first met the Earl of Montrose who matriculated at the University of St. Andrews in 1627. for more click here
