Communicated with the Compensation Commission about compensation for Baillie's Bacolet in Grenada, previously owned by his father James Baillie.

  1. Son of Miss Colin Campbell and James Baillie who married in Grenada 26/04/1772. His mother Miss Colin Campbell was the daughter of Colin Roy Campbell of Glenure, factor of the forfeited Stewart estates in Argyll and victim of the famous Appin murder in 1752. James Baillie (1737-1793) was the brother of Evan Baillie (1742-1835) and therefore Hugh James Baillie was the first cousin of James Evan Baillie and Hugh Duncan Baillie (both q.v.). Also the brother of Colin Campbell Lloyd, Alexander Baillie and Janet Higgins (all q.v.).

  2. Born 1786, married Jessie, daughter of Henry Mills, Esq., of Lower Morden Surrey; they had two children, Colin Campbell and Alexander, the latter baptised in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 31/05/1826. Death of Hugh James Baillie age 84 registered in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Q2 1870. To date no probate record has been discovered for him. Colin Campbell Baillie of Glenure House, Charlton Kings, near Cheltenham, left £13,113 3s 4d on his death in 1889.

  3. Glenure House, Cheltenham, built in the 1820s, is extant and listed Grade II : it was presumably at least named and possibly built by the Baillie family.
