"Patrick, known familiarly as 'Lang Patrick of Pollart', married, first, Margaret, younger daughter and co-heiress with her sister Marion of John Sinclair of Herdmanston, in the lands of Polwart and Kimmerghame. He had a charter from Archibald, Earl of Angus, to him and his wife in conjunct fee and the heirs-male to be procreated between them, etc., of half of the lands of Kimmerghame, 15 May 1470. It is traditionally related that the uncle of Marion and Margaret Sinclair, as heir-male of the family and their guardian, in order to prevent their marriage, and the consequent loss of those lands to the Sinclair family, removed them from Polwarth to his castle of Herdmanston across the Lammermuir Hills. The Humes, however, learned of their retreat, summoned their retainers, and riding to Herdmanston, forced the uncle, after an investment of his castle, to surrender his wards, whom they thereupon carried back to Polwarth and married. Upon 6 November 1475 Margaret was served heir in special to her father in the half of Polwarth, and was infeft therein the same month. Thereafter Patrick Hume was designed 'of Polwart,' as also in 1480 was David Hume, son and apparent heir of George of Wedderburn, his brother, by virtue of his mother's half of the inheritance." (page 2)

"He (Patrick Home) married, first, as above stated, Margaret Sinclair ....He had issue by his first wife, Margaret Sinclair, one son : 1. Alexander" (page 3)
