Dr David Elliot, grandson to Robert Elliot, the emigrant in a Memoranda written by him on the ancestors and descendants of the family of Robert Elliot (1695); describes David Elliott, son of Robert as a man "of medium stature, well-proportioned bodily frame, of easy manners, and a pleasant expression of face"[4]

He had, thro’ life, supported an excellent character. He was remarkable for a meek and gentle temper, was a kind husband, an affectionate father, and a steady friend. He was a Ruling Elder in the church, and gave the most pleasing evidence - - - particularly in the near view of another world . . . of his steady faith in the Redeemer, and his hope of eternal life.”'[4]
