  General Notes:

"The eldest son of James and Jean (Fleming) Muirhead, James Muirhead (6th) of Lauchope is considered to be the progenitor of the senior Muirhead of Lauchope line. His line ended in 1738, and the line begun by his brother, John of Shawfutte came into prominence as the senior Muirhead line. Although begun as Muirhead of Shawfutte, the line became known as Muirhead of Bredisholm through the acquisition of the estate of Bredisholm in Lanarkshire."

from Mother Bedford website 1

James married Jean FLEMING about 1509.1 2 (Jean FLEMING was born in 1492 and died in 1565 in Picardie, France.)

  Marriage Notes:

"James Muirhead (5th) of Lauchope was born circa 1490. About 1509, he married Jean Fleming, who was two years his junior, the daughter of John, Lord Fleming, and Elizabeth Ross. From their union were born three sons and a daughter: James (6th) of Lauchope (born circa 1510), John of Shawfutte (born circa 1512), William (born circa 1518) and Margaret (born circa 1519). It is possible that there was also another son, named Thomas, born to James and Jean Muirhead."

Note: As noted with previous wives in this Muirhead lineage, the ancestry offered by the Mother Bedford website is not confirmed soundly by other historians, and for this reason is not included on this site.
Regarding children only James, John and Margaret are named by Burke's, though this may have more to do with how long other children survived or whether they were recorded as having legitimate offspring.
