Thomas Graham of Dunans (d before 10.11.1568)
As reflected by the fact that BLG1952 (Bontine Cunninghame Graham of Ardoch) does not show who was the father of this Thomas, the ancestry of this Thomas is not certain. TSP reports George Crawfurd (in his 'Peerage') as providing this connection (and goes on to provide some details of the next few generations "to correct one or two errors into which Crawfurd has fallen") but says "nothing has been found on record to prove him the son of John, son of Earl Malise."

iv. Thomas Graham in Inchrie, later of Duchray or Duchrae
  Thomas, who bought Duchray from his nephew in 1622, may have been father of John Graham of Duchray (c1600-1700) but some people say that that John was a son of Patrick Graham of Inchbraikie and so presumably must have bought Duchray from Thomas or his successor or executor. We are provisionally showing John Graham of Duchray in a Temporary file and hope to investigate his parentage further in due course.
