George Watson [r]: (1654 – 1723) Chief accountant to the Bank of Scotland when it was founded in 1695; in his will he left generous sums for "entertaining and educating the male children and grandchildren of decayed merchants in Edinburgh" - the first school became what is now George Watson's College.
