Thomas Boyd, with his father, Robert Boyd, 5th Lord Boyd, fought at the battle of Langside on 13 May 1568, for Mary, Queen of Scots. He inherited the title Lord Boyd on the death of 5th Lord Boyd in 1590. He resigned his whole estate to the King, from whom, on 12 January 1592,[nb 1] he obtained a new charter thereof, "erecting the same into a free Lordship and Barony, to be called the Lordship and Barony of Kilmarnock" to himself for life, with remainder to his son and heir apparent, Robert, Master of Boyd, in tail male, remainder to "heirs male," thereby excluding the heirs general. Under this grant Thomas, not improbably, became Lord Boyd of Kilmarnock. He died June 1611.[1] As Robert died before his father,[nb 2] the estates and title passed to his son Robert. Thomas was the second but first surviving son and heir of Robert Boyd, 5th Lord Boyd.[2] Thomas Boyd married firstly, before 1568, when she was living, Margaret, 2nd daughter of Sir Matthew Campbell, of Loudoun, by Isabel, daughter of Sir John Drummond, of Innerpeffry. He married, lastly, Elizabeth Wallace, who survived him.[nb 3][1] Thomas Boyd died in June, 1611, and had seven children as follows[3]

Robert, Master of Boyd:

Sir Thomas Boyd of Bedlay:

Adam Boyd: He married Margaret, sister of Robert Galbraith of Kilcroich;

John Boyd: Of whom we have no record.

Marion: She married James, Earl of Abercorn.

Isabel Boyd: Isabel, according to Robertson, married John Blair, but Collins' Peerage states that James Stuart of Bute, (d. 1662) married Isabel, daughter of Sir Douglas Campell of Auchinbrick and Isabel his wife, daughter of Thomas, Lord Boyd, which must mean that Isabel married twice. Agnes Boyd: She married Sir George Elphinstone of Blytheswood. The aforesaid Isabel, according to ^ Julian dates with 1 January as the start of year (See Old Style and New Style dates) 1.^ Thomas Boyd had a son Robert Boyd, styled Master of Boyd, his heir apparent. The son married before 1595, Jean, daughter of Mark (Kerr), Earl of Lothian, by Margaret, daughter of John (Maxwell), Lord Herries. He died v.p. May 1597. His widow married between 4 March 1606 and 16 April 1610, David (Lindsay), Earl of Crawford, by whom she had no issue, and from whom she was divorced. She married 3rdly, before 16 February 1618, Thomas Hamilton, of Robertoun (Cokayne 1912, p. 262). opinion of Cokayne almost incredible (Cokayne 1912, p. 262).

Notes: 1.^ Thomas Boyd had a son Robert Boyd, styled Master of Boyd, his heir apparent. The son married before 1595, Jean, daughter of Mark (Kerr), Earl of Lothian, by Margaret, daughter of John (Maxwell), Lord Herries. He died v.p. May 1597. His widow married between 4 March 1606 and 16 April 1610, David (Lindsay), Earl of Crawford, by whom she had no issue, and from whom she was divorced. She married 3rdly, before 16 February 1618, Thomas Hamilton, of Robertoun (Cokayne 1912, p. 262). 2.^ Cokayne cites Scots Peerage vol. 5, p. 165, where it is stated that Jane Stockdale, as wife of a Lord Boyd, must have married this one. However Cokayne notes that as Jane was the youngest of the 18 children of William Stockdale, of Green Hamerton, county York, being 5th daughter by his 2nd wife, Dorothy, daughter of Thomas Mill, of county Durham, married (Visit. of York 1660) "ye Lord Boid of Scotland", if she was married to this Lord Boyd it can only have been as his 2nd wife, and the fact that her eldest brother was not born before 1593, it makes it in the opinion of Cokayne almost incredible (Cokayne 1912, p. 262).
