The Revolution Settlement had reinstated the McCullochs in Barholm but they no longer lived in that old tower. In keeping with the times, they took up residence at Balhassie. The ancestral estate must have been much increased by the McDowell marriage, and was to be further augmented by another successful matrimonial alliance. Of the birth and early days of John McCulloch of Barholm nothing is known: no record survives of any brothers or sisters. He married in 1689 Jean Gordon only daughter and eventual heiress of William Gordon of Culvennan, to whom she had acted as executor and to whose two sons, James and William, both of whom died young and unmarried, he had acted as curator. Though the estate of Culvennan had been embarrassed by forfeiture, it was still a handsome addition to the McCulloch estates.
