"Sir William was one of the twelve nobles deputed by the Parliament of 1367 to treat with England for the release of King David II., taken prisoner at the battle of Durham. On his death without issue male, his estates of Abercorn, &c. passed with his daughter Christian to Sir John Lindsay of Byres, ancestor of the Earls of Crawford and Lindsay, who on that occasion adopted the three molets of the Mores in their bearings. The old patrimonial estates of Cowdams, Camseskane, &c. passed to the male representative of the family, Godfrey Mure, of Caldwell,"
