  • Sir John De Montgomerie, second son of Sir John and Elizabeth Eglinton, succeeded to the lands and titles of his father and mother in 1398, and is referred to as eldest male heir and chief of the French house of Montgomerie. He was one of the chiefs of the Scottish army which invaded England in 1402, and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Halidon Hill. Five years later he was in Scotland and introduced the reputed Richard II, of England, to Robert II, of Scotland. On the accession of James I, after his long imprisonment in England, Sir John de Montgomery (2) was among the nobles of high rank who were arrested on suspicion of having profited by their sovereign's imprisonment and brought before the Parliament held at Perth, March 12, 1425. He was, however, released immediately and restored to high favor, being on the the jury to try the Duke of Albany, and was commissioned to reduce the fortress of Lock Lamond, held by Albany's youngest son, James Stewart. He married Margaret, daughter of 'Sir Robert Maxwell, of Caerlaverock, the ancestor of the Earls of Nithsdale', and died prior to November, 1429, . . . .

  • "This ancient and noble title-- That Ilk -- is peculiar to the Scots, and has never been hitherto defined well. It is the title which ddnotes -- not the gentleman, as Johnson's degrading appellation, (viz., whose surname and the title of his estate are the same,) but also the chief of all the clan of his own surname. It does not neccessarily or essentially refer to the estate. McFarlan, McIntosh, Brisbane, Tweedie, &c., of that Ilk, have never had lands of the name of their surnames. . . .

  • Sir John de Montgomerie " succeeded his father before 1398. In 1402 he formed on the chiefs of the Scotch army which invaded England, and was taken prisoner at the disastrous battle of Halidon Hill." He was not long a captive, however, for two years after he was in . . .
  • Sir John married Margaret, daughter of 'Sir Robert Maxwell of Caerlaverock, (ancestor of the Earls of Nithsdale,)' and dying previous to November, 1429, left by her three sons and three daughters.
