William Mure of Rowallan, the last representative of the family, was entered a student at university of Glasgow in 1660. His share in the afflictions of his father has been already noticed. This did not shake his attachment to the church for which he suffered. His name frequently occurs in the records of the parish of Kilmarnock. He is mentioned there for the first time in 1695 in a commission to defend a process of translation before the synod. He was a member of the Scots parliament and died in 1700. He married about 1670, Dame Mary Scott, apparently heiress of Collarny in Fife, by whom he had daughters Anna, Margaret, and Jean. The latter, his only surviving daughter and sole heiress married, first, William Fairlie of Bruntsfield, near Edinburgh, afterwards designed of Fairlie, to whom she had issue. Tradition still points out the spot where Fairlie was married to the heiress of Rowallan. The ceremony was performed by a curate, in the fields, about a quarter of a mile from the house of Rowallan, at a tree still called the marriage tree which stands on the top of a steep bank, above that part of the stream called “Janet's kirn”. The heiress of Rowallan married, secondly, David first earl of Glasgow, and had to him three daughters, Lady Betty, who died in infancy, Lady Jean, who by special destination succeeded to Rowallan, and Lady Anne, who died unmarried. Jean Mure, countess of Glasgow, died September 3, 1724, and was succeeded by her elder surviving daughter of the second marriage, Lady Jean Boyle Mure of Rowallan, who married the Hon. Sir James Campbell of Lawers K.B., third and youngest son of the second earl of Loudoun (see vol ii p 695). Their son James Mure Campbell succeeded to the estate of Rowallan and was the fifth earl of Loudoun (see Loudoun fifth earl).
