Robert Montgomery of Braidstane, Ayrshire (d before 04.05.1468)
m. Jean Campbell (dau of Sir George Campbell of Loudoun, Sheriff of Ayr)
GH shows Robert succeeded in turn by his 3 sons, Robert (d before 03.01.1485), Alexander (a 1505, dsp) then Adam with that Adam succeeded by his son Adam John who m. the eldest dau of Sir John Colquon of Luss. That is supported by 'History of the County of Ayr' (James Paterson, vol 1, 1847, p279+). Provisionally, we follow BLG1886, which follows Lodge, shows Robert father of Robert father of Robert father of Adam. We used to show that but on 06.05.20, following a review using Paterson, decided to follow GH which shows as follows. Note that some sources may confuse the issue by numbering the lairds according to Lodge rather than the sources we now give precedence to.
