I don't think this is Dr Forrest - he was born in 1804.  Judging by the height of the collar and the wig, I would say that the portrait is from the 1790s.



I also looked up Macintosh, and agree that this isn't him.  It seems likely that he is Rodger (assuming he has a birth date around the 1760s or so), or else that he isn't any of the people named in the will.

If General Macintosh,it is a portrait of him as a very young man. I have photographs of him in later life  - he was the sister of m great-great-great-great grandmother. I do not have any portarit of his father Charles Macintosh, though as  FRS there may be one in Glasgow. Our family hold a collection of his letters, as well as his biography written by another son.

Expertise

I am knowledgeable about English history from about 1400 to 1688, and then from the reign of Victoria (after 1837). I have a particular interest in the monarchy and dynastic relations of Europe from 1800 onwards. I cannot answer questions regarding the latter Stuarts, the early Hanovers, and the politics of the 18th century.
