  • Notes 
    • "SIR ROBERT BOYD, the faithful companion of Robert the Bruce in the War of Independence. A Robert Boyd attended the King's escheators from Dumbarton to Renfrew with Sir John Walleys and their men at arms, October 1304, and Sir Robert de Boyt was taken prisoner by the English in the Castle of Kildrummie shortly before 13 September 1306, a Duncan Boyd having been captured and hanged 4 August previously. Robert Boyd joined in a letter to the King of France, 16 November 1308, and he was one of the Scottish commanders at the battle of Bannockburn 24 June 1314. For his faithful adherence to his cause, he had a grant from King Robert to 'Roberto Boyd, militi, dilecto et fldeli nostro,' of the lands of Kilmarnock, Boudington, and Hertschaw, which were John de Baliol's; the lands of Kilbryd and Ardnel (Portincross), which were Godfrey de Ross's, son to the deceased Reginald de Ross; all the land which was William de Mora's, in the tenement of Dalry; with seven acres of land, which were Robert de Ross's in the tenement of Ardnel all erected into an entire and free barony to be held of the King. He had also a charter of the lands of Nodelles dale; and a third, granting Hertschaw in free forest. He was one of the guarantors of a treaty of peace with the English 1323. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Halidonhill, 19 Jul 1333, and died not long afterwards." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]
