  c. Elizabeth Cunningham
  BP1934 shows the Elizabeth who married James Dunlop as of the generation earlier but we accept the suggestion in Commoners (vol i, Dunlop of that ilk), kindly brought to our attention by a site visitor (HNK, 11.09.03), that she was of this generation.
  m. James Dunlop of Dunlop
  ii. Cuthbert Cuninghame
  iii. Elizabeth Cuninghame
  m. John Craufurd, younger of Craufurdland (b c1591, dvp 1612)
  As reported above, BP1934 shows an Elizabeth of this generation as having married James Dunlop. Instead, we assume that this was the Elizabeth, daughter of Alexander Cunningham of Corsehill, who married John Craufurd.
  iv. Margaret Cuninghame
  m. James Stuart, 1st of Torrance
  C.+ other issue - Jean, Margaret
