Scope and Content Window from Bailie McMorran's house in Huntly House Museum, Canongate, Edinburgh Huntly House, 'erroneously identified as the lodging of George, 6th Earl and 1st Marquis of Huntly' dates from the early 16th century. Its name may come from a later tenant, a Duchess of the Gordons of Huntly who had a flat here in the 18th century. The 16th-century window from Bailie McMorran's house had leaded glass above and oak shutter boards below. The shutters, probably Dutch in origin, have linenfold design and carvings typical of the period. Bailie John McMorran, a wealthy city magistrate, was shot dead by a schoolboy while trying to restore order at a riot at the Royal High School in 1595. The boys had been denied a week's holiday.
