Alexander McIntosh of St David

???? - 1826


'Eldest son of Duncan Mackintosh of Castle Leathers. Became a merchant in Jamaica, built a house there called Moy Hall. Later returned to Scotland and built Daviot House on the bank of the River Nairn.' However there are inconsistencies in this account as the slave registers and Jamaican inventories give Alexander McIntosh of St David as deceased by 1826 while the Scottish inventory of Alexander McIntosh of McIntosh gives his date of death as 02/04/1827.
