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.

ii+ 4 sons
5+ 5 sons and 1 daughter
BP1934 Barclay identifies the following Janet as "dau.of Hugh Montgomerie, of Stane, eld. son of Hon. William Montgomerie, of Stane" but we show Hugh as younger son of Arthur of Stane. Hence, we are not sure exactly how Janet fits into this family.
B Janet Montgomery
m William Barclay of Pierston d 17.07.1584
d. Neil Montgomery, 1st of Lainshaw d 1547
m Margaret Mure dau/heir of Quintin Mure of Aird
Neil's father-in-law is sometimes identified as Quintin Mure of Skeldon. However, under TSP Cassilis, which identifies Margaret's mother as a daughter of the 1st Earl of Cassilis, he is referred to as 'of Aird' and it is noted that, after Neil's death, Margaret married John Kennedy of Skeldon. It is possible that John Kennedy obtained Skeldon from his father-in-law.
