    ---
    Every family needs its "Black Sheep" - The Tutor of Cassillis achieved notoriety through his part in the family feud which set one branch against another resulting in 'murder & mayhem' and eventually in his own murder. The "Roasting of the Abbot of Crossraguel Abbey" is a famous tale whereby the Abbot was roasted alive by the Earl and the Tutor, in "the black vaults of Dunure Castle" in a bid to obtain the ownership of the Abbey lands. The abbot later reneged on the forced signature but the family did acquire the lands and the Abbot lived to tell the tale!
    The Tutor is painted in a much kinder light by the author S R Crocket, in "The Grey Man".
    ---
    His father was (possibly) poisoned, his grandfather murdered, and his ggrandfather killed in battle.
    His brother, the 4th Earl, died from injuries sustained after his horse fell on him.
