This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

This section covers the Baillies of Jerviswood. There was a well-known family of that name/title which started with George Baillie. However, the database contains a reference to the earlier ...
Alexander Baillie of Jerviswood
m. Margaret Livingston (dau of William Livingston of Kilsyth) her father died by 1545
BP1934 (Baillie), which covers the Baronets of Polkemmet, identifies that family as a cadet of the Baillies of Jervistowne "who were descended from the Baillies of Carphin, who were cadets of the Baillies of Lamington" (see Baillie1). As the first reported Baillie of Polkemmet was married in 1600, and as it is believed (but has not yet been fully proven) that the Jervistown and Jerviswood were the same estate, or at least were originally part of the same estate, it is thought very likely that there was an earlier line of Baillies of Jerviswood before that started by the following George of St. John's Kirk. It is not known whether or not the following George was descended from or otherwise related to the above Alexander. According to various web sites, George bought Jerviswood in 1636 (and then Whiteside, later called Mellerstain, in 1643). He is reported to have been the son of a prosperous Edinburgh burgess (merchant) and to have been descended from the Baillies of Lamington.
