James Drummond, Duke of Perth

James Drummond, the Duke of Perth, was the brother of Lord John Drummond. He was joint commander of Bonnie Prince Charlie's Jacobite army alongside Lord George Murray. At the Battle of Culloden he commanded the left wing of the Jacobite army.

James Drummond managed to evade capture after Culloden but was declared guilty of High Treason. He felt that the safest course of action was to leave the country.

Following rumours of his death on board a ship bound for France, James Drummond settled in South Biddick, a small village near Sunderland, in the north-east of England. He married and had six children. He died in 1782.
