About Thomas Boyd, Earl of Arran

Thomas Boyd,(d. c. 1472) Earl of Arran was a Scottish nobleman.

The son of Robert Boyd, 1st Lord Boyd, Thomas was created Earl of Arran and Baron Kilmarnock in the Peerage of Scotland in 1467. He married Princess Mary, sister of James III in 1467. The family successfully negotiated the king's marriage to Margaret of Denmark and Thomas escorted her from Denmark to Scotland in 1469.

Robert and Thomas Boyd (with Mary) were out of the country involved in diplomacy when their regime was overthrown. Thomas fled on hearing of his father's trial, and died at Antwerp in 1472. His marriage to Mary was later declared void in 1473.

He is mentioned very eulogistically in one of the Paston Letters.
