  General Notes:

"SIR JOHN MAXWELL of Carlaverock is described in two undated grants (ratified by the Prior of St. Andrews 23
January 1343-44) to Dryburgh Abbey of the patronage of Pencaitland Church, as son of the late John Maxwell of
Pencaitland, Knight, and as 'Johannes de Maxwell, miles, quondam filius domini Johannis de Maxwell et heres domini Eustachii de Maxwell fratris sui.' In the ratification he is called John Maxwell, Knight, Lord of Maxwell. He was captured at the battle of Nevill's Cross, 17 October 1346, and sent to the Tower of London,9 and probably he died soon afterwards."
