  • Notes 
    • From Ayr and Its People, citation details below:

      In 1533 Alexander [Lockhart] obtained the lease of the waulkmill of Alloway, which remained in the family's hands until the 1650s, and his son John in 1556 purchased from the Abbot of Paisley the lands of Boghall across the river in the territory of Dalmilling. John married Janet Bannatyne, provost Richard's eldest daughter, sometime before 1548 and they had a family of a girl and five boys. In 1588 John Lockhart, in a complaint against the magistrates of Ayr, is described as "being now become aged and subject to diverse diseases and infirmities of body, and thereby unable to travail in the trade of merchandise or otherwise in winning of his living by means of industry, has withdrawn himself, his spouse and family, for his better ease, furth of the burgh of Ayr where he made his residence and dwelling, to his own place of Boghall, where he now makes residence, of intention to rest there quietly during the course of his life."

      He complained to the Privy Council that although he no longer resided in the burgh, the council was still taxing him as though he was. His complaint was upheld.
