Sir James Ogilvy, 1st Lord of Airlie (d before 25.09.1504)

TSP (vol 1, Airlie) shows that Lord James had 6 sons (identifying Walter as the 3rd), that he married 3 times, and that he had 2 daughters by his 3rd wife, leaving the impression that his other children were by his 1st wife. However, in the 'Addenda and Corrigenda' in vol 9, TSP reported that 'Walter' should be 'Oliver' and that he was son of Sir James's 2nd wife, Helen Douglas, leaving the impression that Oliver may have been the only child of that marriage. This leaves us with thinking that the following were probably children of Elizabeth Kennedy but with this not being certain.
