Sir John Ogilvy of Inverquharity (b c1520, d 1587)
Jack Blair had kindly drawn our attention to the confusions in BP1934 on the wives of the lairds of successive generations. He has reported on his research on this family in his book 'Ogilvy of Inverquarity' (published in 2006 by Tay Valley FHS, ISBN 1-9059947-02-7). BP1934 shows Elizabeth, dau of Thomas Fotheringham of Powrie, as this John's wife rather than as 2nd wife of his father. BP1934 then shows his son John, who married Helen Ogilvy, as father of Sir John (who dsp after marrying Elizabeth Ogilvie) and James, father of Sir John who married Matilda Fothringham. Jack Blair reported it as follows:
