Sir John Watson and the Baronets of Earnock


George Watson's College, Edinburgh

Founded as a Charitable Hospital in 1741 from the legacy of the merchant and financier George Watson, George Watson's Hospital reopened as George Watson's College in 1870, and is now a school catering for both boys and girls, although no longer in its original location. There's a great wikipedia article here.
