Philip Cunningham of Birkshaw had for many years been a freeholder in the barony of Snade, and was probably granted the land of Birkshaw by his kinsman George Cunningham, lord of Belton and feudal superior of the barony of Snade. He also appears to have been one of the barony?s baillies, for he along with Adam Gordon, probably the son of Adam Gordon of Holm, and John Cottis were directed by George Cunningham to infeft his son-in-law, Sir John Hay of Yester, the barony of Snade in 1482. Only ten years earlier in 1472, Vedast Grierson of Lag, Adam Gordon, Gilbert Amuligane, John Cottis and others, witnessed a sasine directed by Robert Fergusson of Breconside, infefting George Cunningham of Belton the barony of Snade.
