Successor Laird Elect

I have thoroughly enjoyed my term as Laird Elect starting 6 December 1985 and fully appreciate the support given to me during those years.

However, advancing years dictate that a new Laird be elected as I am no longer able to carry out my duties adequately.

It is therefore with much pleasure I advise that Director Ken Porteous, family # 525 (8) of ghost “Dunty” fame, has been elected Laird Elect effective 29 March 2003.

Ken, wife Maura and family Duncan, Joanne and Simon live in Middlesbrough, U.K. They attended our 2000 Reunion and several Crook Inn gatherings near the Cairn and I look forward to a bright future for Porteous Associates under his leadership. His e-mail address is:

I now hand over to Ken and retire with a host of happy memories.

Thank you all,
Barry Porteous
1st Laird Elect
