McCree is butler at Duneagle Castle for Lord Flintshire.

Following traditional convention, he addresses all of the visiting servants from Downton by the surnames of those they serve, as does Wilkins, Lady Flintshire's maid.

He inquires Anna how she and her husband manage at home, having the same surname, to which Anna tells him the family still addresses her by her first name, like when she was a housemaid.

McCree introduces Michael Gregson when he arrives for dinner one night, then is among those in attendance of the Gillies Ball.


  • Given that Lord Flintshire had to sell Duneagle due to financial losses, it is possible McCree lost his job there.
