George McCulloch was served heir to his grandfather, Alexander, 1680, in Torhouse McCulloch, Torhousekie, Carngavin, Auchneacht, and Craigdow.

The arrest and execution on the charge of murder of Sir Godfrey McCulloch, brought ruin to many members of the McCulloch family.

His estate was hopelessly involved and it took many years to disentangle his affairs. George McCulloch must have been on intimate terms with Sir Godfrey; he had acted as cautioner for him in many of the bonds that represented his financial dealings: one alone was for £5000. He was of course called on to implement his suretyship and consequently suffered serious losses. Many documents registered at the Sheriff Court of Wigtown attest the difficulties he, and other McCullochs had to face and adjust among themselves.
