Classification: Query
Does anyone know where I could find information on Capt. John Porteous of the Edinburgh Riots? I believe I may be decended from him or one of his family members.

I know his father's name was Stephen Porteous, a tailor in Edinburgh and he had a sister named Rachel Porteous who married William Dickson 22 Aug 1711. From some records I found, he may have possibly had a brother named Samuel Porteous as well.
