Sir William Scott of Balvey, (10th) of Balwearie or Balweary (a 1548)
m. Helen Lauder (dau of Sir William Lauder of Hatton)
1. Michael Scott (dvp unm)
2. Sir William Scott of Balwearie (a 1568)
  m. Janet Lindsay (dau of John Lindsay of Dowhill)
A. Sir James Scott of Balwearie (d 1606)
  m. (mcrt 23.06.1583) Elizabeth Wardlaw (dau of Sir Andrew Wardlaw of Torrie)
  i. William Scott of Balwearie (d 19.09.1622)
  BP1934 does not identify William's wife but BLG1969 suggests that she was Elizabeth Graham daughter of the 4th Earl of Montrose. Whilst prepared to accept that her name was Elizabeth Graham, we doubt that she was a daughter of the Earl (and hence sister of The Great Montrose) for that family was well documented and she is not mentioned by TSP (Montrose). We are more sympathetic to the idea, identified by 'History of the Camerons' (Alexander Mackenzie, p310), that she, mother of Alexander, was ...
  m. Jean Elizabeth Graham (dau of John, 3rd Earl of Montrose, by Jean Drummond)
  a. Walter Scott of Balwearie (dsp unm, Colonel)
(1) BP1934 reports that William's "only son, Col. Walter Scott of Balweary, dsp." It makes no mention of the additional children who are (according to a web site which has since been renamed or withdrawn and so is no longer accessible) reported in 'Scotts of Balwearie' by Carol Clark Johnson. The web site reported that William, a Captain, served in Holland and had the following additional children: Jan, William & Janet. Jan Scott (or Schott) lived in Holland and is reported to have had (by his first wife, Marijckie Jans) a son William Jansen Schutt (d after 04.1706) who married Margaret Grietji Jacobs in 1663 and had issue who lived in America. We have not seen the book but, noting that BP1934 was specific that William had only one son, are doubtful as to the security of this connection - particularly since a contributor, CW (09.10.06), kindly contacted us and reported that the book provides no evidence to support this claim.
(2) As mentioned above, 'History of the Camerons' suggests that William & Jean Elizabeth were parents of ...
  b. Alexander Scott (minister of Melrose)
  (1) Elizabeth Scott
  m. John Luckly or Lucklow (Bailie of Coupar, Fife)
  (A) Elizabeth Luckly
  m. (01.1701) John Cameron (b c1654, d 06.1719, minister of Kincardine)
  ii. James Scott, 1st of Logie
  Although BP1934 & Commoners show James as of this generation, we suspect that he was 2 generations earlier (or possibly 1 generation earlier, being a cousin of the Sir James who d 1606 rather than his son) for that would make the dates more consistent with each other. However, provisionally we keep to following those sources in case it is the dates which are wrong.
