x.+ other issue - John of Broomhill d after 1583, Michael, William vicar of Kirkbean
m2 c1477 Janet Douglas dau of Sir William Douglas, 4th of Drumlanrig
It is an assumption that Mary was by William's second marriage rather than his first but, given that BE1883 attributes two sons to his first marriage which did not last long, it seems reasonable.
C. Mary Somerville
m James Lockhart of Lee
2. Elizabeth Somerville
m Archibald Campbell, Master of Campbell dvp 03.1440
This marriage is suspect because it appears that Elizabeth's husband died before her parents married. Even allowing for inconsistencies on the numberings of the Lords, the dates appear not to match yet this marriage is reported in various sources, including TCP Argyll. This will be investigated further in due course.
