Families covered: Baillie of Polkemmet

BP1934 (Baillie) reports that a certificate in 1676 relating to the granting of a coat of arms to this family stated that "the Baillies of Polkemmet are descended from the Baillies of Jervistown, who were descended from the Baillies of Carphin, who were cadets of the Baillies of Lamington." It appears that the exact connection has not yet been proven. On Baillie1 we show the Baillies of Lamington. On Temp05 we show a line of Baillies of Jervistown, albeit not starting until the 17th century.
