  General Notes:

' The first marriage of James Muirhead (8th) of Lauchope (to Elizabeth Houstoun) produced three sons: John (known as John Muirhead of Brydinhill), James, the heir, and Thomas along with three daughters: one married to Alexander Gartsbore [sic] of that-ilk in the County of Dumbartoun; the second, Joanna, to John Crawfurd , 'Younger of Ruchsolloch' in the county of Lanark; and the third, as noted by Nisbet "to ----- Baillie of Pockemmet." The second marriage of James (to Margaret Somerville) is not known to have resulted in any children.'

Note: Other documents suggest Jean Muirhead's husband was John, not Alexander Gartshore, but he may have had more than one Christian name.

Jean married John GARTSHORE of that Ilk, son of John GARTSHORE of that Ilk and Barbara STARK.1 (John GARTSHORE of that Ilk was born about 1600.)
