Stormont, David Murray, [note] first Viscount, elder brother to William Earl of
Mansfield, [note] and father to David, the second Earl, is reported,
says Lord Orford [note] , to have written “An Elegy sacred to the Memory of John Earl of Strathmore, who was killed in
1715;” but which was not printed. His lordship died in 1748. Douglass, in his
Peerage, calls him a man of great learning, knowledge, and integrity. He married Anne, only
daughter and heiress of John Stewart, Esq., of Invernytie, by whom he
had issue, two sons and two daughters.
