    In Dec. 1581, David Tyrie of Drumkilbo, a son of the above David, was killed by Adam Crichton, friar of Ruthven; Adam was probably the son of William Creighton of the Spanish Armada group (The Creighton family produced one of the day's great European thinkers: James Creighton also with Stewart antecedents; though short lived, he refuted, publicly in France and Italy, many of the errors of Aristotelianism. This kind of holistic evaluation serves the Catholic Pope even today thru the Camara at Rome.) Adam Crichton himself was killed at Ruthven 1587. The killed David Tyrie had corresponded with a James Tyrie of Dunnideer (was this the James Tyrie of the Spanish Armada group?). David had married Lilian Gray, daughter of Patrick Gray of Buttergask, who afterwards became Lord Gray. "David was always in trouble with the General Assembly"; and in 1611 Bishop Gladstone wrote that "he deludes the...(torn sheet)...and is a scandall to the whole Kingdom." Shortly after which no more was heard of him. (Was this the killed David whose name was then dropped from English records?)
