  • ID: I33045
  • Name: Hugh Berkeley or Berclay
  • Sex: M
  • Note:

    The principal seat of the Barclays was Ardrossan and the Kilbirnie family was a branch. In 1357 Sir Hugh Barclay is mentioned in a legal document*. His son Hugh was knighted by Robert II. This Hugh had two sons, David who succeeded him, and Archibald, the first of the Barclays of Ladyland. The two estates adjoined each other, and the Ladyland branch was to continue for some two centuries.
    The Kilbirnie line was continued in David Barclay, but no reason has survived why he was granted the whole estate of Kilbirnie plus the half of Ladyland by James I. His son John inherited the enlarged property.

    * So not this man if his father died in 1411.
