(Caledonian Mercury, 24/10/1735) - Last Night died Sir Patrick Dundafs of the Kingdom of Ireland. His Estate and Title devolves to his only Son, who is now in the University of Dublin.

It is not yet proven that the Patrick Dundas mentioned in the newspaper article is Sir Patrick Dundas of Breastmill, but it looks very likely and would suggest another notable branch of Dundases settling in Ireland.
