    ?Exactly 52 years after the Cummin?s death,? says Playfair, ?James of Lindsay, son of that Lindsay who had entered the Dominican Church (to kill Comyn) with Sir Roger, was hospitably entertained at the Castle of Caerlaveroc, by Roger Kirkpatrick sprung from his father?s friend.  At midnight, for some reason unknown, Lindsay arose and mortally stabbed in his bed his unguarded host.  He then took horse and fled, but after riding till daybreak, he was seized only three miles from the castle, and by command of King David suffered death for his crime at Dumfries.?
    The title passed to Roger's nephew, Sir Thomas Kirkpatrick who had a charter of resignation to the lands of Closeburn and Redburgh from Robert, Duke of Albany, in 1409. His grandson, also Sir Thomas was captured at the disastrous Battle of Solway Moss in 1542. The estate again passed to a cousin.
