      "On the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603, he was dispatched by his father to Edinburgh to assure King James I of his father's loyalty and that the Tower was being held at the king's disposal. The king received him with much distinction, and, recognizing his father's services, selected him as the first person on whom he bestowed knighthood." [Royal Ancestry, citation details below]
