Note:
Although Sir Iain Moncreiffe of that Ilk, perhaps the greatest herald genealogist believed that his family were of Celtic origin and descended from a younger son of the Lamonts, the generally accepted view is that they descended from a French family called de Leon, who came north with Edgar, son of Malcolm II, at the end of the eleventh century to fight against his uncle, Donald Bane, the usurper of the throne. Edgar was triumphant, and de Leon received lands in Perthshire which were later called Glen Lyon.
Roger de Leonne witnessed a charter of Edgar to the Abbey at Dunfermline in 1105. In 1372 Robert II granted to Sir John Lyon, called the White Lyon because of his fair complexion, the thanage of Glamis. Five years later he became Chamberlain of Scotland, and his prominence was such that he was considered fit to marry the king¹s daughter, Princess Joanna, who brought with her not only illustrious lineage, but also the lands of Tannadice on the River Esk. He was later also granted the barony of Kinghorne. He was killed during a quarrel with Sir James Lindsay of Crawford near Menmuir in Angus.
The family have descended in a direct line from the White Lion and Princess Joanna to the present day, and their crest alludes to this. His only son, another John, was his successor, and he strengthened the royal ties by marrying a granddaughter of Robert II. Sir John¹s son, Patrick, was created Lord Glamis in 1445 and thereafter became a Privy Councillor and Master of the Royal Household.
John, the sixth Lord Glamis, was, according to a tradition, a quarrelsome man with a quick temper. He married Janet Douglas, granddaughter of the famous Archibald Bell the Cat, and after his death she suffered terribly for the hatred which James V bore to all of her name. Lady Glamis was accused on trumped-up charges of witchcraft and, despite speaking boldly in her own defence, her doom was preordained. She was burned at the stake on the castle hill at Edinburgh on 3 December 1540.
The eighth Lord Glamis renounced his allegiance to Mary, Queen of Scots and served under the Regents Moray and Lennox. He was made Chancellor of Scotland and Keeper of the Great Seal for life, and his son, the ninth Lord, was captain of the Royal Guard and one of James VIs Privy Councillors. In 1606 he was created Earl of Kinghorne, Viscount Lyon and Baron Glamis. His son, the second Earl, was a close personal friend of the Marquess of Montrose and was with him when he subscribed to the National Covenant in 1638. He accompanied Montrose on his early campaigns in defence of the Covenant , but despite his great affection for the Marquess, he could not support him when he broke with the Scots Parliament to fight for Charles I. Lyon almost ruined his estates in supporting the Army of the Covenant against his friend.
In 1677 the third Earl of Kinghorne obtained a new patent of nobility, being styled thereafter Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne Viscount Lyon, Baron Glamis, Tannadyce, Sidlaw and Strathdichtie. He paid off the debts he inherited from his father by skillful management of the estates and was later able to alter and enlarge the Castle of Glamis. John, his son, although a member of the Privy Council, opposed the Treaty of Union of 1707.
His son was a Jacobite who fought in the rising of 1715 at the Battle of Sheriffmuir in Tullibardine¹s regiment. He died defending his regiment¹s colours. In 1716 James, the Old Pretender. son of James VII, was entertained at Glamis. Thirty years later another king¹s son, but a much less welcome one, the Duke of Cumberland, stopped at the castle on his march north to Culloden. It is said that after he left the bed which he had used was dismantled.
Among the Jacobite relics now preserved at Glamis are a sword and watch belonging to James VIII, the Old Pretender, and an intriguing tartan coat worn by him. The youngest daughter of the fourteenth Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne is HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Note: CP does not say by which wife, his son John was born. I find no reliable indication of when Nicholas Chetwode died. Most on World Connect have Nicholas d. 1410, but that is clearly impossible, if Nicholas were indeed the first husband as CP indicates.

Note:
John Lyon, with whom the record of the family commences, leaps into fame and power in the reign of David II. His rank in life may be inferred from the fact that from his first appearance we find him fully equipped for his career as a courtier, statesman, and diplomatist. He was in the serivce of the Crown prior to 9 July 1368, as appears from the inductive clause in the charter of Courtastoune granted to him in that year, but the earliest record reference to his official position at Court is on 13 January 1368-69, when he is designed ‘clericus domini nostri regis,’ on his appointment as one of the auditors to examine the accounts of the Cahmberlain of Scotland. He remained auditor until his own appointment as Chamberlain. In the same year (1369) he was dispatched on a mission to London, and in the English state papers he is referred to as the ‘Clerk of the Privy Seal of the King of Scotland.’
On the sccession of Robert II in 1371 he was appointed Keeper of the Privy Seal. On 10 October 1375, Queen Euphemia, the second wife of Robert II assigned to him certain liferent duties payable to her out of the revenues of the Castle of Edingburgh, of which John Lyon was then Keeper. Thee is a precept by the King dated at Dunbermlyn 25 June 1380, directing the auditors of the royal accounts to allow to John Lyon (whom he and his eldest son had appointed keeper for life) the whole expenses disbursed by the Chamberlain in fortifying and furnishing the Castle of Edinburgh with porvisions, warlike instruments, and all other necessaries. On 20 October 1377 he was appointed Chamberlain of Scotland, then the most importan office in the disposal of the Crown. This position he retained until his death. In the spring of 1382 he was again engaged in a mission to England.
His acquisitions of property date from an early period in his career. On 10 July 1367 he acquired from Walter, Earl of Ross and Euphame his wife, the lands of Fordell in the barony of Forgandenny, and on 28 May 1368 from John de Hay, lord of Tullibothwell, Ballydireth, now Bandirran, in the Fenton’s barony of Coulas; on 13 April 1370 from the above John de Hay, Tolynachton, with the pertinents and native men thereof in the forest of Buyne and sheriffdom of Banff; In 1370 from Walter de Lesly, Knight, Lord of Philorth, twenty oxgates of land in Monorgan, with three acres of meadow, three cruives, and a yair called Brakeless, a grant confirmed in 1371 by Andrew de Lesley, Lord of that Ilk; in this charter John Lyon is designated ‘of Forteviot.’ The lands of Longforgan he acquired in three separate portions; the first or Pyngle’s part was acquired from Adam de Pryngle, burgess of Aberdeen, the discharge of the purchase price being dated 20 march 1374; the second or Bruce’s part of Longforgan he got in excambion for certain other lands, from Agnes, wife of Sir Robert de Ramesay, Knight, on 28 April 1377; the third or Scarlet’s part was resigned by Thomas Scarlet on 6 June 1377, and confirmed to John Lyon 14 July 1378; these lands were erected into a barony by charter from Robert II 2 October 1378. On 8 April 1373 he acquired in tack from William de Meldrum Altermony and Dalrevach in Stirling. On 18 February 1375 he had a grant from the convent of Arbroath of the lands belonging to the abbey within the territory of Glamis. On 29 June 1378, he had a lease from the Abbot of Dunfermline of the lands of Fothros and Schenevale, near Portyncrak in Fife, for services rendered to the monastery; this lease was transferred into a heritable right in his grandson’s time, the grantee being taken bound not to remove any of the nativi without the consent of the convent. On 22 March 1379 he had a liferent from Alexander, Abbot of Scone and the monastery thereof, of the lands of Kambusmychell and the two Collanays which belonged to Mariota de Buthirgask, to be holden of the convent for five merks sterling yearly. In 1379 he purchased from John McKelly the Island of Inchkeith, the Crown confirmation dated the following day containing a clause prohibiting any one from hunting or hawking on the island without leave from Sir John Lyon under a penalty of ten pounds sterling. From William, Earl of Douglas and Mar, he had a grant of the lands of Balmukedy and Ballynchore, the precept of sasine being dated 21 February 1380. On 20 March 1381 he acquired from Hugh de Ross, lord of the west part of Kynfawnys, the lands of Kindongwane and Clevekippowie or Kippowcleft in the shire of Fife.
His first acquisition from the Crown was the lands of Courtastoune in the territory of Garioch and shire of Aberdeen, granted him on 9 July 1368 by David II. On 18 March 1372 Robert II granted him in free barony the lands of the thanage of Glamuyss in the sheriffdom of Forfar, for the service of one archer in the King’s army, a grant which marks the alteration of the ancient Celtic holding into a feudal tenure. A confirmation of the charter of Glamis was granted on 7 January 1373-74 by the King’s three sons, John, Earl of Carrick, afterwards Robert III, Robert, Earl of Fife and Menteith, afterwards Duke of Albany and Governor of the kingdom, and Alexander, the ‘Wolf of Badenock,’ wherein they declare that, considering the deserts of John Lyon and his very faithful service, they confirm and ratify the grant for themselves and their heirs, and promise that never in any future time shall they impugn or revoke the same, even if any of them shall attain the Royal dignity. On 30 January 1380 he received a new investiture to himself and the heirs-male of his body, whom failing, to Patrick his nephew, whom failing, to Michael, brother-german of Patrick, and the substitutes so names are the only references to the collateral branches of the House of Lyon in existence at that period. From the date of the royal grant Glamis became the chief seat fo the family. Malcolm II died at Glamis on 25 November 1034 and the national records, so far as in existence, prove that it remained part of the royal patrimony until 1372. On 27 June 1376 King Robert II granted ‘dilecto consanguineo nostro Johanni de Ross et Johanni Lyovne’ the lands of Bondyton of Lathame, the carucate of land called Redeplowland and others in the sheriffdom of Berwick. On 4 October 1376 King Robert II granted ‘to his dearest son John Lyon and Johanna his wife, the King’s beloved daughter,’ the thanedom of Tannadyce in the sheriffdom of Forfar. He further received from the Crown on 9 August 1378 the Loch of Forfar with the fishings thereof and eel chest; on 27 September 1379 certain lands in Thuriston, Wodhall, and Wodoley, in the constabulary of Haddington; on 24 December 1381 the whole burgh of Kinghorne with the manor place, lands, rents, and forests belonging to the King in the Constabulary of Kinghore, reserving only the whold great customs of the burgh due from wool, skins and hides; on 30 August 1382 an annualrent of four chalders of victual and £10 sterling, out of the lands of Doune in Banffshire, in the gift of the Crown, and on the same date a charter of the lands of Glendowachy. He had in addition to these lands several grants of escheats from the Crown.
By an indenture dated 17 September 1380, between Sir John on the one part, and the Abbot and convent of Scone on the other, he gifted to the monastery all his lands in the burgh of Perth, in the north street thereof, and on the north side of that street, with an annualrent of fifty shillings, payable out of the land of Thomas de Sallaris in said burgh, for which the Abbot and convent obliged themselves to perform a mass daily at the altar of the Blessed Virgin in the great church of the monastery, where the said Sir John desired to be buried, for the souls of himself and Dame Jean his wife, daughter of Robert, King of Scots, and for the sould of the whole burgesses of Perth.
Sir John Lyon was knighted before 2 October 1377. He was slain on 4 November 1382 by Sir James Lindsay of Crawford. The only contemporary narrative of the event is contained in the accounts of Robert, Earl of Fife and Menteith, who succeeded Sir John in the office of Chamberlain, and who states that his death took place on the 4 of November, ‘suddenly and unexpectedly.’ The ‘Liber Pluscardensis’ states that the deed was done at night when the victim was in bed and unsuspecting. All the early references to the catastrophe indicate the belief of the writers that there was foul play, and Lindsay was compelled to flee from Court to elude the vengeance of the King. The even marked the beginning of a feud between the families which remained unhealed for centuries. Many of our old writers were tempted to step aside from the beaten track of their dry annals to celebrate in verse and prose the merits of one who in his day played so important a part in the life of the nation. And sice customs and manners have changed greatly in five centuries while human nature has changed not, we may yet discern in the rugged lines of the old makkar the secrets of the Chamberlain’s success:
Plesand but peir, and weill gevin in all thing;
Lustie and large, plesand of hyde and hew,
Mansweit and melk, rycht secreit als and trew;
Baith digest (als) rycht circumspect and wyss;
Aboue all vther in his tyme, I reid
Of pulchritude and fairnes did exceid.
For that same caus as trow rycht weill I can,
Rycht tenderlie him louit mony man;
The King him louit also ouir the laue,
And gaif him oucht that he plesit to haif,
For his vertu and for his fairnes als,
So trew he wes that he was neuir fund fals,
Expert he was to dyte and wryte rycht fair,
Thairfoir the King maid him his secretair,
And of his signet gaif him all the cuir,
With othir office of him that he buir.
He was, by the King’s own direction, interred in the Abbey Chruch of Scone, where his Majesty intended his own body should be committed to its rest, and where, at his death, he was actually interred. From his complexion Sir John was styled the ‘whyte Lyon.’
Sir John’s wife was the Princess Johanna Stewart, one of the daughters of King Robert II by his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Adam Mure of Rowallan. The Princess had three husbands. On 17 January 1373-74 she was married to Sir John Keith, eldest son of Sir William Keith, Marischal of Scotland, and she was left a widow before 27 December 1375. Her marriage with Sir John Lyon took place between 27 June and 4 October 1376, on which latter date the King designes him ‘his dearest son.’ The union was at first a secret, and two years later on 10 May 1378, the King publicly acknowledged Sir John as his son, and, with consent of his three sons above hames, granted to the spouses letters of acknowledgment and remission for any clandestine marriage formerly contracted by the, in regard a marriage had been solemnly celebrated between them in face of the Church, in presence of the King and his sons and other friends and relatives. The tocher of the Princess was the thanedom of Tannadyce. After Sir John’s death she married Sir James Sandilands of Calder. On 20 November 1384 King Rober II granted to Sir James, on his own resignation, the baronies of Dalzell, Motherwell, and Wiston, in the sheriffdom of Lanark, to be held by Sir James and Johanna, the King’s daughter, ‘whom God willing he is about to take to wife.’ In the last reference observed to the Princess in 1404 she is designed ‘Lady Johanna, Lady of Glammys.’ She was interred with her husband in the monastery of Scone. So far as appears, the only child of the union between Sir John and the Princess was his son and successor.

Sir John Lyon, Knight. In the charter-room at Glamis there is a precept by Robert II addressed to the Abbot and convent of Dunfermline, charging them to enter John Lyon, son and heir of the deceased John Lyon, Knight, as heir of his father in the lands of Fothros and Schenevale. On 18 October 1388 the King issued a protection, taking John Lyon ‘nepotem nostrum,’ his lands, men, and whole possessions under his peace and protection, etc., and directing all his debtors to make payment to him of their debts without delay; thus avoiding the hardships which a grant of ward would have inflicted on the youthful heir. His name occurs as a witness to an instrument dated the 27 and 28 August 1392, taken upon the occasion of Christian of Brogan, an infected leper, wife to John of Allan, and sister and nearest heir to Henry of Brogan, Laird of Auchloun, coming to Aberdeen, and there resigning, with consent of her husband, to Sir David Fleming, son and heir of Sir Michael Fleming of Biggar, her right to the lands of Aucloun. He was knighted in or before 1404. On the 4 of December 1423 his name occurs in a list of the hostages to be delivered in secuity of the ransom of King James I. A few days afterwards Sir John received a safe-conduct to meet the King at Durham, and there is little doubt he formed one of the company of Scots notables who conducted King James from Durham to his own dominions in April 1424, his son and successor Patrick taking his place as a hostage in England. On 24 February 1433 Sir John, for the better support of the mass founded at Scone by his father, granted an annualrent of forty shillings, payable out of his barony of Forgandenny.
His death is said to have take place in 1435. Being of the blood-royal he was interred at Scone, ‘in sacello regum,’ and when ‘the house of Scone was built, and his tomb, with others, raised, there was found there some papers and tokens, with a staff of his own length unconsumed.;
He married his first cousin once removed, Elizabeth Graham, youngest daughter of Euphemia, Countess Palatine of Strathearn, and her husband, Sir Patrick Graham of Dundaff and Kincardine. The common ancestor was King Robert II, and the bridegroom being a grandson of that monarch and the bride a great-granddaughter.

Patrick Lyon, first Lord Glamis. On 24 March 1423-24 Sir John Lyon issued letters patent, dated from Glamis, declaring that Patrick, his son and heir, was to remain a hostage in England for the ransom of King James I. On 9 NOvember 1427 Patrick was exchanged for David, Lord of Lesly. On 23 September 1440 he acquired in heritage the lands of Fothros and Schenevale, in the regality of Dunfermline, formerly set in tack by the Abbot to his grandfather, the Chamberlain. In 1442 he was infeft in the ancestral estates in Forfar and Fife. In 1451 he received from James II a charte of the lands of Cardani-Berclay, Drumgley, and Drumgeith, in the sheriffdom of Forfar. On 30 September 1444 he is designed ‘Patrick Lion of Kinghorn, Knight.’ He was created a Lord of Parliament under the title of Lord Glammys on 28 June 1445, and on the same date he is so designed in a report of the proceedings of a committee of Parliament.
Lord Glamis appears as Master of the Household to King James II on 7 April 1450, and held the office for the ususal period of two years, his attendance at Court, as appears by his signature as witness to the royal charters and other writs, being almost unbroken during that time. In 1450 and the following year he was one of the Lord Auditors of the Treasury. He had a safe-conduct into England as one of the Commissioners appointed for settling infractions of the truce between the Kingdoms 17 April 1451. In 1455 he was again ambassador to England. In 1456-59 he wsa Keeper of the royal castles of Kildrummy, Kindrocht, and Balveny, and various payments for the repair and maintenance of these fortresses were made to him during the period. In 1457 he was nominated one of the Lords of Session on behalf of the Barons of Scotland, being the first of seven Judges of the Supreme Court which the House of Glamis has given to Scotland.
Lord Glamis died at Belhelvies on 21 March 1459, and was buried at Glamis. Judging from the period at which their children began to take an active part in public life, the marriage of Lord Glamis with Isobel Ogilvy, daughter of Sir Walter Ogilvy of Lantrathen, must have taken place soon after his return from England in 1427. After her first husband’s death Lady Glamis married Gilbert, first Lord Kennedy, whom she also survived. She had a full share of the pugnacity of the race form which she sprang. She fought her sons, her tenants, her neighbours, and her creditors, and had a tough struggle with the representatives of her second husband for the possession of the family plate. On 20 June 1480 she entered into an indenture with the Prior and convent of the Preaching Dominicans, friars of Ayr, who, with consent of Brother John More, Vicar-General of that Order in Scotland, agreed, in return for a liberal endowment of lands in the town and sheriffdom of Ayr, to perform divine service for the benefit of the souls of James and Margaret, King and Queen of Scotland, of Isobel herself and her father and mother, and of Patrick, Lord Glamis, and Gilbert Kennedy, Lord of that Ilk, her husbands. After Lord Kennedy’s death, who was succeeded by his son by a previous marriage, her Ladyship was reconciled to her family, and returned to Forfarshire. ‘She in her widdowedheid finished the old House of Glamis, built the two ston bridges, and the ille in the Kirk of Glames, wherein, with her first husband, she was interred in anno 1484, as the inscription upon the tomb bears witnes.’

ALEXANDER, second Lord Glamis. In 1460 he was infeft by Grown precept in the lands of Kinghorne and the thanages of Glamis and Tannadyce. In 1478 he was in possession of the lands of Redeplowland, originally granted to the Chamberlain. In 1461 he was appointed Keeper of the castles of Kildrummy and Kindrocht in succession to his father. In 1463 his name is included in the list of Barons present in Parliament, and from that time onwards he was a leading figure in the administration of the Kingdom. He was nominated one of the Lords Auditors of Parliament and at the same time one of the Lords of Council. One of Alexander’s colleagues in the. exercise of his duties was his younger brother and successor, Mr. John Lyon of Courtastoune, afterwards third Lord Glamis. This is one of the two examples in Scottish history in which brothers contemporarily exercised supreme judicial functions in Scotland, the other example being in the Hope family in the time of Charles I. In 1464 he was one of the Barons appointed to attend the King at Berwick, to meet the English ambassadors summoned to Newcastle to conclude a truce. In 1478 the feud between him and the Master of Crawford reached such a pass that Parliament endeavoured in vain to find a remedy. In 1468 John, Abbot of Scone, in consideration of a mortiflcation by Lord Glamis, payable out of the lands of Forgandenny, and of the gift of a croft lying on the south side of the monastery, engaged to perform the exequies of the dead, viz, a Placebo and Dirige on the day of his decease annually in the choir, and a mass of requiem on the morrow for the weal of his soul and of the souls of his ancestors and successors.” The last reference observed to him is on 14 August 1484. He died in 1486, He married, during the lifetime of his father, Agnes, the daughter of William, Lord Crichton, Chancellor of Scotland. The bond for the lady’s tocher of 900 merks is dated 17 February 1449-50. On the same date he and his spouse received a charter of the lands of Auchtermunny, in the sheriffdom of Stirling, and of Banchory and Petedy, in the constabulary of Kinghorne. There were no children of the marriage, and on his death his widow married, after 20 October 1487, Walter Ker of Oessford.

[Complete Peerage V:428]
……………………………
John, third Lord Glamis, was in no measure inferior in point of energy and ability to his great ancestor the Chamberlain. In 1464, as Mr John Lyon of Courtastoune, he received payment from the Crown for certain expenditure on the castles of Kildrummy and Kindrocht, of which his father Patrick, first Lord Glamis, had been Keeper, and he made material additions to the resources of the family. In 1479 he purchsed from George Bell of the Holmys, Inchture, in the sheriffdom of Perth. From Dorothea Tulloch, one of the ladies of Bonyngtoun, and Walter Wode, her husband, he had a charter, on 4 April 1479, of one-half of the Loch Mills of Forfar. From David, Lord Lindsay of the Byres, he had a grant of the lands of Puresk, in Kinghorne, the precept for infefting him being dated 12 November 1488. One-fourth part of the barony of Baky, in the sheriffdom of Forfar, was acquired on the resignation of Henry Douglas 14 August 1487; a second fourth part was acquired from Jonet Fenton of Baky 4 July 1489. On 5 September 1491 he acquired the fourth part of LIggle Buttirgask, Collace, and Strathfentoun, co Perth, from the heirs of the above Jonet Fentoun.
On 14 October 1472 he was made Coroner within the bounds of Forfar and Kincardine. In 1483-84 he appears on the bench with the Lords Auditors and also with the Lords of Council in deciding civil cases, and continued to act in these capacities for ten years. On 11 January 1487 King James III nominated him one of the ‘Great Justices’ on the south side of the Forth. One great opportunity of displaying his qualities as a statesman was vouchsafed to him. After the death of King James III at Sauchieburn a Parliament met at Edinburgh on 16 October 1488, to secure a general pacifiaction, when the events which led to the late conflict were fully debated. The assembly, after listening to an explanation by Lord Glamis, of the causes that led ‘to the slauchteris committed and done in the field of Striulin quhar ouir souerane lordis fader happinit to be slane,’ unanimously resolved that the wisest thing now to do was to ‘agree that the King that now is is our true souerane,’
The attitude maintained by Lord Glamis throughout so grave a crisis secured him the respect and confidence of both sides; he was peculiarly fortunate in obtaining the friendship of the young King, and during the early years of the new reign his attendance at court was continuous. In the Parliament in which he made so happy a use of his forensic talents, he was, with the Lord Gray and the Master of Crawford, appointed a Lord Justice ‘for Angus, Heiland and Lawland, and to sit with the justices of the regalities.’ On 15 February 1489 he was appointed on of the Crown Auditors, and on the 26 of June following a member of the King’s Privy Council. In 1490, when he was appointed a Commissioner under the Privy Seal to let the Crown lands, the King designs him ‘our Justice;’ the ordinary title being simply ‘Justiciar.’ In 1491 he was one of the Lords appointed to attend the young King at Berwick to conclude, if possible, a truce with England, and in the same year he was Ambassador from Scotland to the Courts of France, Castile, Leon, Arragon and Sicily. In 1495 his name occurs as one of the two Justiciars on the south side of the Forth.
On 20 October 1491 King James IV, at the instance of Lord Glamis, erected the twon of Glammys, in the sheriffdom of Forfar, into a free burgh of barony for ever, with power to elect bailies, and to hold a cross and market on Friday in each week, and a public fair every year on the feast day of St Fergus (17 November), and for the four days following, with right to impose toils. On 12 October 1487 Lord Glamis granted a mortification of an annualrent of twelve merks and certain portions of the lands of Glamis to the altar of St Thomas the Martyr in the parish church there, for the celebration of divine service for the souls of his elder brother Alexander and Agnes Creichtroun his wife.
The last reference observed to John, third Lord Glamis, is in the Treasurer’s accounts for 1496. He died 1 April 1497, and was buried at Glamis. He married Elizabeth, said to have been daughter of John Scrymgeour of Dudhope, Constable of Dundee. She died prior to 20 October 1492, on which date her husband, with consent of John, his eldest son, mortified to the chapel of the Holy Trinity, in the Parish Church of Glamis, two acres and a toft of land in the barony of Glamis for the benefit of her soul.

JOHN, sixth Lord Glamis, was born c. 1491, and was retoured heir to his brother in the Aberdeenshire estates on
29 April 1505. He, between that date and 1528, had sasine of or made up titles to the lamily estates in Perth, Forfar, and Fife. In public life Lord Glamis supported the party of Queen Margaret against that of her former husband the Earl,
of Angus. He was ‘ a werie bold, stoute and resolute man, and by the Commones called to ane byename Clange-
Causey for his manie quarrells.’ Lord Glamis died at Leith 8 April 1528, and was buried at Glamis. He married Jonet Douglas, third daughter of George, Master ol Angus, who was slain at Flodden, and sister of Archibald, sixth Earl of Angus. After the death of Lord Glamis she married Alexander Campbell of Skipnish, second son of Archibald, second Earl of Argyll. In his blind anger against the house of Douglas, Lady Glamis as the sister of the banished Earl was marked down for destruction by James V., but the conduct of his intended victim was so irreproachable that years elapsed before the King was able to put his purpose into execution. Her name was included in the general Douglas proscription of 18 January 1528-29, for the counsel, assistance and help given by her to her brothers Archibald and George, but no immediate action followed, and on 20 September 1529 she with Patrick Charteris of Cuthilgurdy had a special licence ‘ now to depart and pas to the partis bezond sey in thaire pilgrimage and utheris liefull besynes there to be done, and to remaine in quhatsumevir realme or cuntre they pleas as thai sail think expedient except the realme of Ingland.’ On 1 July 1531 a certain Gawyne Hamilton received a gift of her escheat ‘ throw her being fugitive fra the law and at the horn or convicted of intercommonyng with our souerane lordis rebellis.’ On 1 January 1532 she was indicted on the ground of poisoning her late husband John, Lord Glamis, her uncle John Drummond of Innerpeffray becoming cautioner for her appearance. A month later she appeared to answer the accusation, but the jury summoned, mostly
Angus gentry, refused to countenance so shameless a charge, and were fined for non-appearance;8 a second jury summoned from a wider circle three weeks later also refusing to appear were likewise fined.7 At length on 17 July 1537 she was accused as being ‘ art and part of the tressonabill conspiratioune and ymaginatioune of the slauchter and destructione of our souerane lordis maist nobill person be poysone, and for art and part in the tressonable assistance supple ressett intercommonyng and fortifying of Archibald, sumtymeBrll of Anguse and George Douglas hir brether, traytouris and rebellis.’ She was found guilty and condemned to be burned on the Castlehill of Edinburgh, and the horrid sentence was carried out the same day. She was burnt upon the Castle Hill with great commiseration of the people, in regard of her noble blood, of her husband, being in the prime of her years, of a singular beauty, and suffering all, though a woman, with a man-like courage; all men conceiving that it was not this fact [the charge of poisoning the King] but the hatred the King carried to her brothers. ‘The English ambassador wrote that Lady Glamis was put to death’ ‘as I can perceyue without any substanciall ground or proyf of mattir.’ On the day after her trial her husband Archibald Campbell of Skipnish, in trying to escape from Edinburgh Castle, fell Irom the rocks and was killed.

………………………………..
JOHN, seventh Lord Glamis, was born c. 1521.
On 9 November 1528 he was infeft in the barony of Longforgan. He was about sixteen years of age when, in 1537,
with his younger brother George, he was imprisoned in the Castle of Edinburgh. There he was compelled to witness
the agonies of his clansmen who were put to the torture of the rack in the vain attempt to extort from them words
which should implicate his mother. He was threatened with similar treatment, and under this dire compulsion signed a confession that he was ‘ art and part of the tressonable conceling and nocht reuiling of the tressonabill conspiratioune
and imaginatioun ol the distructioune of ouir souerane lordis nobill personne be poysonne, ymaginat and conspirat be vmquhile Jonet, Lady Glammys his moder.’ On the 18 of July 1537 he was brought before the Lords of Justiciary and his confession produced against him. He was forthwith condemned to death, and his estates and honours forfeited to the Grown. The execution was deferred, but as a condemned traitor he was remitted a close prisoner to the Castle of Edinburgh.
Having thus, in defiance of the obligations and injunctions of his ancestors, brought to pass, as he supposed, the ruin
of the House of Lyon, the King of Scotland took instant possession of the estates of the family, and from the date
of the sentence upon the young baron until within a few weeks of his own death, he was busily employed in distributing
the outlying portions of the estates among the hangers-on of the Court, and upwards of thirty Crown charters to as many different individuals attest the royal industry in that respect. He was not above intromitting with the family plate, and antiquaries may lament the disappearance of the great silver flagons of Glamis, twelve in number, each of seven pounds weight, which were melted down to supply the exigencies of the royal mint. The castle and barony of Glamis, however, with some other portions of the estates, he retained in his own possession. This Naboth’s vineyard indeed seems to have had a weird fascination for James V, A royal establishment was permanently maintained at Glamis Castle from 1538 onwards, and the Treasury accounts for the remainder of the reign teem with entries relating to its upkeep. The King was frequently in residence, and many royal charters and other writs are dated from Glamis Oastle. He was there in the Feast of St. Andrew 1538, in January and September 1539, in the autumn and winter of 1540,’ in the autumn of 1541, and in the spring of 1542. Then the Border troubles began and Glamis saw him no more. On the prison doors being opened on the death of James V., the young baron immediately set himself to recover his estates. On the first day of the flrst Parliament of Queen Mary, held at Edinburgh on 12 March 1543-44, he presented a summons of reduction against the Crown, concluding for reinstatement in his honours,dignities,offices, and estates. The summons had been duly served on the distinguished personages against whom it was directed, and the ceremonies attending its proclamation by the heralds at the Market Crosses of Edinburgh, Cupar, Perth, Dundee, Forfar, and Aberdeen, were made the occasion of popular demonstrations by the friends of the clan. A few days afterwards Parliament rescinded the forfeiture. On the same date the Crown in part amends of past injustice, in addition to restoring to Lord Glamis those portions of the estate still in its possession, granted him the non-entry duties of his whole lands. Those he had little difficulty in recovering. There remained but the barony of Kinghorne. That had been gifted to the Treasurer, James Kirkcaldy of Grange, who, after the death of James V., retained his post. He had extracted from Lord Glamis, as a preliminary to the restitution by the Grown, a promise that he should not be disturbed in its enjoyment, and had conveyed the barony to his son William. This compulsion Lord Glamis resented, and contemplated, indeed had actually taken steps to reduce the Crown gift to Grange, when further proceedings were rendered unnecessary by the forfeiture of the Treasurer’s son for his share in the slaughter of Cardinal Beaton. The Queen-Dowager, Mary of Lorraine, securing the gift of William Kirkcaldy’s forfeiture, made over her rights therein, so far as relating to the barony of Kinghorne, to Lord Glamis for the sum of 2000 merks. So eventually the family were reinstated in their former possessions.
In 1549 Lord Glamis was served heir to Elizabeth Gray, Countess of Huntly, his grandmother, and in her right claimed that part of the barony of Longforgan called Huntly. He purchased the teinds of Glamis from Cardinal Beaton, perpetual commendator of Arbroath. Lord Glamis sat as a member of the Privy Council 18 February 1544, and up to 3 May 1547 his name appears in the sederunts. In public life he flrst appears as a partisan of the Douglases on their return to Scotland after the death of James V., but discovering how completely that faction was in the hands of the English King, he soon after left them, and in June 1545 joined the Queen-Mother and Cardinal Beaton in their opposition to the overbearing tactics of Henry VIII. He was present in Parliament on 26 June 1545, when it was agreed to accept the offer of the King of France to send a force into Scotland to aid the country against ‘ the commoun inymy of Ingland,’ and he
served in the vanguard of the Scottish Army, which in three bodies invaded England in that year. There is a charter by him dated at Glamis 4 October 1548, about which time he disappears Irom public life in Scotland, and spent his latter years abroad, where, having contracted a sickness, he came home ‘ to get his native air.’ He died before 18 September 1559, on which date John, Earl ol Atholl, had a gift of the ward.
He married,’ with greit trivmphe ‘ on 6 February 1543-44, Jean Keith, daughter of Robert, Master ol Marischal, and sister of William, fourth Earl Marischal. She was infeft in Courtastoune and Drumgowan upon a precept under the Quarter Seal 6 February 1543-44. On 24 November 1559 she was kenned to her terce before the Sheriff of Forfar, in the baronies of Glamis, Baky, and Tannadyce, and cavels being cast for the sun and shadow, the lady fell to her cavel at the sun. Concerning her little is known, only the careers of her sons remain an enduring memorial to her lofty conceptions of duty.
