BP1934 (Colquhoun) reports that Umfridus de Kilpatrick obtained the lands of Culchone or Colquhoun in the time of King Alexander II (1214-1249). BLG1888 (Campbell-Colquhoun of Killermont) reports that the Sir Robert we start with was the 5th laird of Colquhoun. We hope to show the descent of Robert from Umfridus in due course.

BP1934 reports that Sir John married Margaret Baillie on 17.02.1636. As Margaret's parents married in 1636, either at least one of those dates is mistaken (it being more likely that the error is with this generation) or Margaret was born before her parents married and their marriage took place when she was very young indeed.
