Name: John Galbraith
Change Date: 9 JAN 2009
Although Glyne belonged to the Colquhouns, and Balgair, Kilfassets and Ballindalloch to the Cunninghams, yet from an early date these lands were occupied by Galbraith families, cadets of Culcreuch. The earliest date at which they were so occupied is not known, but at least before 1534, Balgair was tenanted by a John Galbraith.
The view now taken is that James Galbraith of Balgair (1687) was descended from Robert Galbraith, brother of Andrew Galbraith of Culcreuch, and that the Galbraiths in Hill of Balgair were descended from John Galbraith in Balgair before 1534, who was an earlier cadet of Culcreuch (probably a son of Humphrey, a younger brother of Thomas who was hanged in 1489, and of James Galbraith of Culcreuch, 1490).
Is he the John Galbraith of Balgair (d 1566), son of Hugh, younger son of Andrew Galbraith of Culcreuch ?
Father: Humphrey Galbraith
