This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

[It was probably the 5th Earl (d 1574), who was referred to as "the Great Reformer".] Paterson continues with "Be this as it may, the family seems to have been related to the Cuninghames of Caddell".
