  The only wife mentioned for James by Ballingall is Janet Cockburn. The article in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biographies on Thomas Craig, 1st of Riccartoun, identifies the mother of the undermentioned Helen, who was Thomas's 2nd wife, as Helen Swinton. We are not sure who was the mother of the other children but presume Janet was mother of at least the following James. This will be investigated further as part of our review of this page.
