It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

m before 1360 Alicia Campbell dau of Sir Colin Campbell of Lochow
1 Sir Robert de Lawedre or Lauder of The Bass & Edrington d before 14.06.1425
Young identifies Sir Robert's wife as Agnes Fallow. GLF, who shows an Agnes Faulaw as second wife of a later Robert see below, names this Robert's wife as ...
m Annabella
Alexander & William, shown by Young and some others as brothers rather than sons of Sir Robert, are sometimes identified as Sir Robert's illegitimate sons being 'frater uterinus', i.e. by the same mother. However, GLF reports that a charter by Sir Robert in 1411 specifically identifies William as his son & heir by Annabella.
A William de Lawedre or Lauder, Bishop of Glasgow, Chancellor of Scotland b c1380, d 14.06.1425
B John de Lawedre or Lauder dvp 1421

D James de Lawedre or Lauder a 1459
E Alan de Lawedre or Lauder 'of that ilk' of Lauder Tower a 10.1464, Bailie of Edinburgh
It appears that, although Alan's successors were not the senior line of the family, they became known as 'of that ilk'. This was possibly because they lived in Lauder, East Lothian.

c+ other issue - William of Boroughmuir, Hector, Mariotta
Sir Robert de Lawedre or Lauder of Edrington & The Bass, Governor or Edinburgh Castle, Chamberlain d 1451, Justiciar - continued above
Although it is not clear, as GLF differs significantly from Young at this point, this generation and the next appear to have been omitted by Young.
