Name

Peter Laing changed his name to Peter Laing Gordon sometime prior to 1894

Note

BIOGRAPHY: Appears that he was born a Laing and later took the name Gordon prior to 1894 and acquired Craigmyle.

From www.craigmyle.ca

It appears that Peter LAING acquired the GORDON estate of Craigmyle and changed his name to GORDON. He was a engineer from Aberdeen. [M.L. Gordon]

The Christening is an assumption based on the DOB from Age at Death (67 in 1866) and Mother's Name (Margaret Walker) and appending "Gordon" surname.
