According to the 'Inverness Journal' of 20th August 1847, Provost Simpson was 'entertained to a public dinner in the Caledonian Hotel as a mark of respect for his public character and private worth'. Nothing else is known about him except that he is said to have run off to London with someone else's wife at the end of his term in office.
