"The acts of forfeiture were against the individual, and not necessarily against his family. This is made evident by an entry recorded in the Register of the Privy Seal, dated 30 November, 1580. That entry served as a
'Confirmation of Assignation dated 23 May, 1575 by James Muirhead sometime of Lachop to Margaret Muirhead his daughter of an annualrent of 65 merks alienated by him and Elizabeth (?) Hamilton his spouse by John Hamilton of Pedderisburne from the lands of Drumgalloch and Blakrig in the parish of Monkland, to be "intromitted with by her until the redemption thereof by a payment of 650 merks and 20 pounds of lent silver".The Sovereign gives this to her despite her father being forfeited.'
