  General Notes:

"Lauchope (variously Lachop), was located in the east side of Bothwell Parish midway between the North and the South Calder rivers. It was situated almost directly south of the lands of Muirhead. The town of Holytown would come to be located about one and one-half miles to the southwest of Lauchope. It would have stood slightly to the west of the present-day A8 and A73 interchanges.
The house at Lauchope was described as being constructed with 'walls of remarkable thickness'. The original structure was burned in 1570 after its owners, James Muirhead and his wife, Janet (nee Hamilton) gave refuge to Janet's brother James Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh, who had murdered the Earl of Moray at Linlithgow. When, or by whom, the house was rebuilt is not known." 3

Janet married Sir James MUIRHEAD 7th of Lauchope, son of James MUIRHEAD 6th of Lauchope and Janet BAILLIE. (Sir James MUIRHEAD 7th of Lauchope was born about 1535 5 and died in October 1622 5.)
