  • Note:

    In either 1507 or 1508, Lord Montgomery was created Earl of Eglinton. He escaped the carnage of Flodden Field in September 1513, and was part of the Parliament at Perth in October of that year which proclaimed the infant James V king.
    Hugh, the second Earl, succeeded his grandfather in June 1545, but died a year later.
    William Cuninghame, 2nd Laird of Craigends was killed on 11 August 1533 in a feud between the families of Cuninghame (especially the Earls of Glencairn) and the Montgomeries of Eglinton. The feud began when Hugh Montgomerie, 1st Earl of Eglinton (who may earlier have been involved in the deaths of the 1st and 2nd Earls of Glencairn) was created Bailie of Cunningham in 1498. This brought him into serious disputes with the Cunningham family, traditionally lords of that area. In 1528 the Cunninghams had burnt down the castle of Eglintoun. William's murderers were members of the Semphill family, relatives by marriage of the Montgomeries.
