  A. (Sir) Robertus de Lawedre (a 1188, 1200, crusader)
  i. Robert de Lawedre
  a. William de Lawedre of Lowther, Sheriff of Perth (a 1251)

  m. (before 1360) Alicia Campbell (dau of Sir Colin Campbell of Lochow)
  ((1)) Sir Robert de Lawedre or Lauder of The Bass & Edrington (d before 14.06.1425)
  Young identifies Sir Robert's wife as Agnes Fallow. GLF, who shows an Agnes Faulaw as second wife of a later Robert (see below), names this Robert's wife as ...
  m. Annabella
Alexander & William, shown by Young and some others as brothers rather than sons of Sir Robert, are sometimes identified as Sir Robert's illegitimate sons (being 'frater uterinus', i.e. by the same mother). However, GLF reports that a charter by Sir Robert in 1411 specifically identifies William as his son & heir by Annabella.
  ((A)) William de Lawedre or Lauder, Bishop of Glasgow, Chancellor of Scotland (b c1380, d 14.06.1425)
  ((B)) John de Lawedre or Lauder (dvp 1421)

  ((D)) James de Lawedre or Lauder (a 1459)
  ((E)) Alan de Lawedre or Lauder 'of that ilk' of Lauder Tower (a 10.1464, Bailie of Edinburgh)
  It appears that, although Alan's successors were not the senior line of the family, they became known as 'of that ilk'. This was possibly because they lived in Lauder, East Lothian.
  ((F)) Gilbert de Lawedre or Lauder (a 05.1449, Bailie of Lauder) had issue
m. (before 1420) Annabella Maitland (dau of Sir Robert Maitland of Thirlestane & Lethington)

  m. Helen Douglas (dau of Archibald Douglas, 3rd Earl of Douglas) --
  (b) Ann de Lawedre --

Sir Robert de Lawedre or Lauder of Edrington & The Bass, Governor or Edinburgh Castle, Chamberlain (d 1451, Justiciar) - continued above

Young shows the Robert who was son of Sir Robert by Isabel Hay here. We follow GLF.
  m. Elizabeth Lawson (probably dau of Sir Richard Lawson of Highriggs)
  a. Robert Lauder of Edrington & The Bass (d 06.1576)
  m1. Margaret Sinclair (dau of Sir Oliver Sinclair of Roslin by Margaret Borthwick)
  Young shows the undermentioned Sir Robert, Elizabeth & Katherine as children of Sir Robert Lauder of that ilk by Mariott or Alison Cranston (see here). We follow GLF in showing them as fitting here.

This Janet is sometimes confused with a Janet Lauder of the family of Halton, probably because of confusion regarding her marriage to John Lindsay who was known both as Lord Menmuir and as Parson of Menmuir.
