Inverness, 1804, and David Carey's Craig Phadraic: Visions of Sensibility, with Legendary Tales and Occasional Pieces. Inverness, 1810. John Young whose other interests included literature, agriculture and brewing, started The Inverness Journal in August 1807. He may have edited the first few issues himself, but soon employed David Carey, an Arbroath man, who had experience as a Whig journalist in London. He edited the paper from 1807-12. Previously The Aberdeen Journal had been able to proclaim itself 'General Advertiser for the North of Scotland'. The Inverness Journal was able to make inroads into this monopoly. The paper was sold about 1814 to Lachlan Mackintosh of Raigmore for £2,500. Mr John Young died at Lisbon 11 January 1815.

    A London printer who was appointed King's Printer for Scotland 12 April 1632 in succession to T. Finlason. He acquired Finlason's printing materials, and started a printing office in Edinburgh in 1633. He was made a Burgess 4 July 1632, 'Robert Makleane, skinner, souerty for residence'. He apparently did not come to Scotland himself but sent Evan Tyler to manage his Edinburgh office. In 1638 he gave up his Edinburgh office and sold the printing materials, which were afterwards used by G. Anderson and R. Bryson. Some of his productions at this time were printed at his London office, though they bear his imprint as His Majesties Printer for Scotland. On 30 June 1641 he and Evan Tyler were jointly appointed King's Printers, and started with new printing materials and ornaments. He was succeeded by Tyler alone in 1642.
