Sir Robert Boyd, 7th Lord of Kilmarnock
Thomas Boyd was born in 1547. He was the second son, but first surviving son, of Robert Boyd, the 5th Lord Boyd, 5th Lord Kilmarnock and Margaret Campbell. As eldest son of Robert Boyd, the 5th Lord Boyd, he assumed the lordship upon his father's death in death in 1590.
1568 (13 May) - Fought alongside his father at the battle of Langside for Mary, Queen of Scots.
1590 - Inherited the title Lord Boyd on the death of 5th Lord Boyd
1592 (12 Jan) - Resigned his whole estate to the King. 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.
Thomas Boyd married three times.
- Firstly, before 1568, Margaret, 2nd daughter of Sir Matthew Campbell, of Loudoun, by Isabel, daughter of Sir John Drummond, of Innerpeffry (p 165).
- Secondly, he married Jane Stockdale, youngest daughter of William Stockdale of Green Hamerton and his wife Dorothy Mill.
- He married, lastly, Elizabeth Wallace, who survived him. 
Thomas and Margaret had eight children as follows:
- Robert, Master of Boyd - As Robert died before his father, the estates and title passed to his son Robert. 
- Sir Thomas Boyd of Bedlay 
- Adam - married Margaret, sister of Robert Galbraith of Kilcroich 
- John - Of whom we have no record. 
- James 
- Marion - married James Hamilton, Earl of Abercorn. 
- Isabel - Isabel, according to Robertson, married John Blair, but Collins' Peerage states that James Stuart of Bute, (d. 1662) married Isabel, daughter of Sir Douglas Campbell of Auchinbrick and Isabel his wife, daughter of Thomas, Lord Boyd, which must mean that Isabel married twice. 
- Agnes - She married Sir George Elphinstone of Blytheswood.
