Patrick Graham, 1st of Lymekilns (b 03.06.1658, a 1719, d by 1729)
Both Patrick's birth certificate and his marriage certificate (reportedly) showed no entries for his parents. This raises the possibility that he was illegitimate. He was baptised in Glasgow on 11.06.1658 so, at the least, was in the care of a 'member of the community' within days of his birth. He appears to have been well educated and worked for some years for the legal practice of John Graham, 2nd of Dougalston, who (as shown in 'Graham02') is a descendant of Robert Graham of Grougar and Auchenhowie, 8th of Knockdolian (d 1628). Possibly through that work, which took him to (East) Kilbride, he met his wife. It is thought likely, but has not been proved, that Patrick was a relation of John Graham of Dougalston and so was probably also a descendant of that Robert Graham.
