VI. JOHN of Glendoning and Parton, who by many authentic evidents appears to have been poffeffed of an immenfe eftate, viz. the 80 pound land of old extent of Glendoning, the lands and baronies of Clifton, Scarborough, Brecallow, Walchope, Watfterker, Langholm, and many others too numerous to be here inferted. He married, 1ft, Agnes, daughter of Robert lord Maxwell, who died without iffue. He married, 2dly, Elifabeth Sinclair, daughter of William lord Sinclair (omitted in the Peerage, page 621) by whom he had iffue four fons. 1. Bartholemew, defigned, in a precept after mentioned, his eldeft fon and apparent heir. 2. Ninian, who became his father's heir. 3. Simon. 4. Adam, father of John of Bifhopton. He died in autumn 1503, and Bartholemew his eldeft fon before or immediately after him, without iffue.
