Families covered: Paterson of Craigton, Paterson of Mason Lodge, Paterson of Plaister

BFR implies that the following family probably descended from James Paterson of Ayr who, in 11.1614, obtained a lease of lands in Monegregan. BFR identifies the arms of this family as "Arg. three pelicans in their piety on a chief az. as many mullets of the field" which indicates a connection with the family shown on Paterson1.
