    David Hepburn of Waughton and his wife Christian Sandilands are mentioned as husband and wife in a Great Seal charter confirmed at Edinburgh on 10th November 1493. In a further charter confirmed at Stirling on 21st September 1498 the King confirmed a charter of David Hepburn of Waughton and his wife Christine [sic] Sandilands of the barony of Waughton etc.,to their son and heir apparent Kentigern Hepburn. Two of the witnesses were William and Henry Hepburn, sons of David.
    Lauder-Frost has him as son of Sir Patrick Hepburn of Waughton (& later Lufness) (died after February 1464), who appears in charters of The Great Seal of Scotland in August 1439, January 1440, October 1450, 31st March 1451 where he is confirmed in Lufness, and February 1464.
    He also says:
    The great family of Hepburn of Waughton is said by Sir George Mackenzie to have been the principal cadet house of Hailes. John Hepburn (fl.1365), of Over and Nether Merkill in East Lothian, is held by Chalmers and others to have been the ancestor of Waughton. Nisbet identified this John as brother of Sir Patrick Hepburn of Hailes who was born circa 1321 [qv]. Nisbet, however, points out that Mr.Thomas Craufurd (a very competant authority) believed that the family of Waughton was more ancient than that of Hailes.
