10551 William, the third son of the second Baronet, had the estate of Ellisland bequeathed to him by his father,after his uncle Roger (youngest son of the 1st Baronet),died without issue).After his fathers death in 1720,his future father in law Sir Charles Erskine,became his mentor.
He ascended to the Chair of Public Law in the University of Edinburgh ,taking over from Sir Charles.(On 18 April 1734, William obtained a commission under the Privy Seal to be a Regius Professor. He was duly installed on 2 December 1734.)

He represented the Boroughs of the Dumfries district in Parliament for the years 1736-1738,when he was appointed Clerk of Session.His father in law had previously held the seat ,but vacated it to allow William to take over.

10555 Williams testament was lodged with The Commisarret Record of Lauder(Register of Testaments) on 20 May 1793.

William (recorded as William Kirkpatrick,Senior,General Merchant and Baillie of Dumfries)was a witness at the baptism of at least two of the children of William Kirkpatrick,Junior ,of Conheath & Newton,Surveyor of Customs.(son William and daughter Jane Forbes) The other wirness was John Fraser. This would indicate a close family connection.William Kirkpatrick,junior,was the son of Robert Kirkpatrick,of Over and Nether Glenkiln,and Henrietta Gillespie.

William Kirkpatrick Senior married Henriet Kirkpatrick(daughter of Robert Kirkpatrick,of Over and Nether Glenkiln,and Henrietta Gillespie, and sister of William Kirkpatrick,Junior)As it is stated that they were cousins,and George Kirkpatrick ,of Knock, also named his son William,I have assumed that George's son William is indeed William,senior,and although there is no evidence to date that this is the case,it would seem correct.

10577 Writer and musician.His mother Elizabeth, was the niece of the poet Alexander Montgomerie. William himself a staunch supporter of the reformist doctrines declared in the 'Solemn League and Covenant' became a member of the Scottish parliament in 1643 and took part in the English campaign of 1644. He was wounded at Marston Moor, but a month later was commanding a regiment at Newcastle.

His writings included Aeneas; a translation (1628) of Boyd of Trochrig's Latin Hecatombe Christiana; The True Crucifixe for True Catholikes (1629); a paraphrase of the Psalms; the Historie and Descent of the House of Rowallane; A Counter-buff to Lysimachus Nicanor; The Cry of Blood and of a Broken Covenant (1650); some sonnets and various poems and an important musical document: Mure's Lute-Book.

His history of his own family, which was written shortly before his death, "The Historie and Descent of the House of Rowallane", which he derived from his own families papers gives interesting insights into not only his own family but also of that of his neighbours and to the history of Cunninghame in general. In it he states that his family stems from "the tribe of O-More in Ireland and that lands in Cunninghame were first granted to Gilchrist Mure by Alexander III for his Gallant actions during the Battle of Largs . Shortly after this Gilchrist gained the lands of Rowallan through marriage to Isobell Comyn the daughter of Sir Walter Comyn one of the most powerful men in the land.

William in his writing however was very pro-Robert the Bruce and seems to have no love for the Comyns who were Bruce's rivals and describes them thus: "The Cummings, then the terror of the whole kingdome, in the reign of the latest Alexanders

I will add the legend of the Closeburn Swans at this point of the family story - there is mention of this legend in the records of Sir Thomas ,the 1st Baronet of Closeburn,later in this history.

In days gone by, the lake of Closeburn Castle was the favourite resort during the summer season of a pair of swans, their arrival always being welcome to the family at the castle from a long established belief that they were ominous of good fortune to the Kirkpatricks.

A young heir of Closeburn Castle(a lad of not quite thirteen years of age)in one of his visits to Edinburgh attended at the theatre a performance of "The Merchant of Venice," in the course of which he was surprised to hear Portia say of Bassanio that he should "Make a swan-like end, Fading in music."

Often wondering whether swans really sang before dying he determined, at the first opportunity, to test the truth of these words for himself. On his return home, he was one day walking by the lake when the swans came sailing majestically towards him, and at once reminded of Portia's remark. Without a moment's thought, he lodged in the breast of the foremost one a bolt from his crossbow, killing it instantly. Frightened at what he had done, he made up his mind it should not be known; and, as the water drifted the dead body of the bird towards the shore, he buried it deep in the ground. No small surprise, however, was occasioned in the neighbourhood, when, for several years, no swans made their annual appearance, the idea at last being that they must have died in their native home, wherever that might chance to be. The yearly visit of the swans of Closeburn had become a thing of the past, when one day much excitement was caused by the return of a single swan, and much more so when a deep blood-red stain was observed upon its breast.
As might be expected, this unlooked-for occurrence occasioned grave suspicions even amongst those who had no great faith in omens; and that such fears were not groundless was soon abundantly clear, for in less than a week the lord of Closeburn Castle died suddenly. Thereupon the swan vanished, and was seen no more for some years, when it again appeared to announce the loss of one of the house by shipwreck.

The last recorded appearance of the bird was at the third nuptials of Sir Thomas Kirkpatrick, the first Baronet. On the wedding-day, his son Roger was walking by the lake, when, on a sudden, as if it had emerged from the waters, the swan appeared with the bleeding breast. Roger had heard of this mysterious swan, and, although his father's wedding bells were ringing merrily, he himself returned to the castle a sorrowful man, for he felt convinced that some evil was hanging over him. Despite his father's jest at what he considered groundless superstition on his part, the young man could not shake off his fears, replying to his father, "Perhaps before long you also may be sorrowful."On the night of that very day the son supposedly died..

10591 Zachary was descended from the family of the Boyds of Pinkell in Carrick (Ayrshire). He was cousin to Mr Andrew Boyd, bishop of Argyle, and Mr Robert Boyd of Trochrig BOYD, Rev. Zachary ,Minister of the Barony of Glasgow. (I9489)
