Hugh Montgomery of Balgray & Hessilheid (Hazlehead)
m. Janet Maxwell (dau of ?? Maxwell of Pollok)
1. Sir John Montgomery of Hessilhead & Corsecraigs (d Flodden 1513)
  A. Hugh Montgomery of Hessilhead (d 23.01.1556)

m. Margaret Fraser (dau of John Fraser of Knock by Margaret Stewart)
  a. Hugh Montgomery of Hessilhead (Hazlehead or Haslehead) (d before 25.09.1602)
  'The Family of Montgomery' suggests that Hugh married a sister of Robert Boyd of Badenheath (d 1611) & the Countess of Eglinton, children of Robert Boyd, 4th (sb 5th) Lord. However, 'The Historie and Descent of the House of Rowallan' by Sir William Mure suggests that the mother of Sir William Mure's wife was a daughter of Lord Sempill and TSP (vol 7, 'Lord Sempill', p550) shows that a Marian (d 16.03.1591-2), dau of Robert, 3rd Lord Sempill, had issue by Hugh. Paterston queries the marriage to (Janet?) dau of Robert, 3rd Lord Semple, on the basis of seeing reference to the marriage to a daughter of Lord Boyd. We presume that Hugh married twice as follows.
