William Garioch - Physician
Physician. Boswell mentions meeting a Dr. Garie at Sir William Maxwell's on October 7, 1762. Pottle, in Journal of my Jaunt, 1762, identifies him with William Garioch.
Boswell described him as "a physician, who has been tutor to the knights of this family [the Maxwells of Springkell] for two generations, a man upwards of seventy, nonjurant and High-Church, but is a quiet peaceable creature and never mentions principles. He lives in the house and seems to be very happy".
