The County Directory of Scotland (1862) (Volume 1862) - Page 117 has him thus:
- "Erins : Tarbert, Lochgilphead : Wm. Forlong of Erins". (Search of mocavo.com)
" On 16th curt, the house of Lady Crawford Pollock, of Pollock, William Forlong, jun. Esq. George’s Square, Glasgow, Crauford, daughter of Lieut.-General Gordon Cuming, Pitlurg.
"25 November 1813 - Perthshire Courier - Perth, Perthshire, Scotland"
Robina's marriage was reported as follows in the Perthshire Courier of 19 August 1841:
- "At Glasgow, on the 12th current, Thomas Hamilton Murray. Esq., only son of Major Murray, late of the 91st regiment, to Robina Crawfurd Pollock, daughter of William Forlong, Esq. of Erines, Argyllshire, and grand-daughter of the late General Gordon Cuming Skene of Pltlurg and Dyce. Aberdeenshire ..."
Robina's marriage was reported almost identically in the Perthshire Advertiser of 19 August 1841 on page 3 with additional information that the place was St Andrew's Episcopal Chapel.
Annie's marriage was reported as follows in the Stonehaven Journal of 7 June 1853:
- At Lochgilphead, Argyllshire, on the 26th instant, the Rev. William Radclyffe Hallett, eldest son of William Hallett, Esq. of Candys and Eling Grove, Hants, to Annie Elizabeth, daughter of William Forlong, Esq. of Erins, Argyllshire, and granddaughter of the late General Gordon Cumming Skene of Pitlurg and Dyce, Aberdeenshire..
It was reported in a little more detail (and probably with better Latin) in the Aberdeen Journal of 8 June 1853:
- At the Chapel of Lochgilphead, Argyllshire, on the 26th ult., by the Right Rev. Bishop Ewing of Argyll and the Isles, the Rev. William Radclyffe Hallett, eldest son of William Hallett, Esq., of Candys and Eling Grove, Hants, and grandson of Robert Radclyffe, Esq. of Foxdenton Hall, Lancashire, to Anne Elizabeth Forlong, daughter of William Forlong, Esq. of Erins, Argyllshire, and grand-daughter of the late General Gordon Cumming Skene of Pitlurg and Dyce, Aberdeenshire.
Lucy's death was reported in the Perthshire Advertiser of 2 March 1848:
- At Mount Erins, the 15th ultimo, Lucy Lucan, second daughter of William Forlong, Esq. of Erins.
The following could have been a grandson, son of William Jr: from Morning Post (London) on 20 March 1854:
- FORLONG.---On the 16th inst., at Burton-park, Petworth, Sussex, the wife of William Forlong, Esq., of a son. (Copy this to Wm Jr's page when he gets one) BUT IT IS MORE LIKELY to be distant-cousin Reginald, son of William Forlonge (1811-1890).
William and wife and six children were at home at "Mount Erin, South Knapdale" in April 1841 for the census, according to the Findmypast transcription (with ages above 15 rounded down):
- William Forlong Male -
- Crawford Forlong Female 50
- Robin C P Forlong Female 25 (Robina Crawfurd Pollok Forlong, b 1814)
- Lucy Duncan Forlong Female 20 (Lucy or Lucken or Luchan, b 1817)
- Gordon Forlong Male 20 (Gordon Forlong, b 1819)
- Mary Forlong Female 20 (Mary, b 1820)
- Ann Elizabeth Forlong Female 15 (Ann Elizabeth, b 1826)
- Frances G R Forlong Male 9 (how does Thomas Alexander George become Frances G R?? Or was this confusion with James G R?)
and two other people:
- Rebeca F McDonald Female 20
- Margaret Menzies Female 50
The beverages business did not always profit. Findmypast's transcription of one newspaper notice goes like this:
- 20th May and 17th June, one o'clock. e WILLIAM FORLONG, junior, wine and spirit merchant in f Glasgow, the remaining partner. of William Forlong, junior, :t and Co.-Creditors meet in'tbe Prince of Wales tavern there,
(14 May 1812 - Caledonian Mercury - Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland)
Another, less comprehensible, pair of machine transcriptions from Findmypast say:

William participated in functions related to at least one of his relatives. The Morning Post of 13 November 1845 reported:
- On the 5th current, Sir Hew Crawfurd Pollok was, by Mr. Sheriff Speirs and a Special Jury, sitting in the Parliament House, served heir to his uncle, the late Sir Robert Crawfurd Pollok, Bart., of that ilk. The Jury, agents, and a numerous party of Sir Hew's friends and tenantry, were afterwards entertained to a sumptuous dinner in the North British Hotel, at which Sir Hew presided.

This machine-transcription from Findmypast suggests that William died in 1876, not 1878: "At Maol Mhor, Tarbert, Lochfyne, on the inst., William Forlong, Esq. of Crins, aged 86 years." (17 March 1876 - Dundee Courier)
