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]
