Families covered: Kinloch of Cruvie, Kinloch of Gourdie, Kinloch of Kinloch

(1) BP1934 reports that "The surname Kinloch appears to be one of the earliest found in Scottish annals. The name Kinloch is derived from the locality in which the first possessions of the family were situated, namely, at the head of Ressie Loch, in Fifeshire."
(2) BP1934 reports that Sir Alexander, who sold the Kinloch estate, dspm. Information on his children comes from BEB1841 (Kinloch).
(3) BP1934 mentions that George had sons other than Sir Alexander and David, whose line it follows. BEB1841 (Kinloch) does not mention David but does mention Andrew & George and provides the additional information on Andrew's family as shown below.
George Kinloch of that ilk of Kinloch & Cruivy (Cruvie), Fife (a temp James IV (r. 1488-1513) & James V (r. 1513-1542))
1. Sir Alexander Kinloch of Cruvie
  BP1934 reports that Sir Alexander, who sold the Kinloch estate, dspm without identifying any daughters. The following comes from BEB1841 (Kinloch). However, 'Fife (P&H, vol 1, p240)' calls the wife of Sir James Sandilands "Margaret (not Jean, as stated in Nisbet's Heraldry)" having identified her as daughter of "The last of this branch of the family ... John de Kinloch of Cruvie". TSP (Torphichen) confirms that the first wife of Sir James Sandilands was Margaret, daughter of John de Kinloch of Cruvie. Noting that the dates look tight, and that at least part of Cruvie passed into the Sandilands family, we are suspicious of the following and so report it in italics. 'Fife (P&H)' notes that part of Weddersbie (same as Weatherbie?) passed into the Ramsay family. This implies that, apart from confusion as to the generation at which Cruvie passed out of this family, there may also be some confusion as to which daughter married whom.

  i. daughter, heiress of Leuchars & Cruvie

  B. Jean (sb Margaret?) Kinloch, heiress of Weatherbie
  m. _ Sandilands of Abercromby
  Thought to have meant to be Sir James Sandilands of Calder (d before 1505), see note above, but it is possible that Jean could have been an unrecorded wife of James Sandilands of Cruvie, son of Sir James of Calder by his second wife, who was ancestor of the Lords Abercombie.
  C.+ 3 sons (dvpsp)
2. Andrew Kinloch of Luthrie
  'Fife P&H (vol 2, p331)' confirms that Elizabeth, daughter of Andrew Kinloch of Luthrie, married "Robert Paterson, younger of Denmure, on condition of his changing his name to Kinloch".
