 The Curse of Glencoe
It was John Strachan of Thornton who purchased the Lenturk lands and baronetcy from John Strachan of Lenturk (also spelt Lynturk, but not “LENTURL” as is shown in the letter).
John Strachan of Lenturk was indicted for the slaughter of Alexander Seytoun of Maldrum and John King of Bourty, and for besieging Kildrummy Castle, the great fortress of the Earls of Mar. For this John (of Lenturk) and his kinsmen, William, Adam and Alexander Strachan, were outlawed.
As for the lands of the Barony of Lenturk, acquired by the Strachans of Thornton, they were sold 50 years later by Alexander Strachan of Thornton, to Alexander Irving and his wife Agnete Forbes, a sale that presumably consolidated the paramountcy of the Forbes in that area.

 Poetry by John Strachan - Introduction
Strachan’s motives, as always, were not entirely pure, since he was also seeking to protect the interests of the Crown, of Anglicanism, of Canada, and of the great fur trading families—all causes in which he had a personal as well as an ideological stake.
Strachan pays particular attention to the "deadly strife" created by alcohol, because it was this vice of all those bestowed by Europeans that had the most devastating effects upon the Native community, contributing to the demise of its most eloquent and capable leaders, including John Logan and Joseph Brant.
Strachan saw himself as a soldier in real and spiritual battles, and he fought fearlessly for the causes closest to his heart, buoyed always by his belief that he was in the right.

 John Strachan, "verses...1802"
Among Strachan's pupils at Kingston were Andrew Stuart, the son of the local Church of England clergyman, and John Beverley Robinson, a future attorney general of Upper Canada.

Strachan's record of the examination that surrounded the recitation of his "Verses" at Kingston in September, 1802 indicates that the poem's climactic urgings on behalf of "instruction" and "Science" were part of a carefully orchestrated performance.
