About Alexander Inglis, of Tarvit

Alexander Inglis of Tarvit, son of Alexander Inglis of Tarvit and Carslogie, was a minor at his father's death ; and John Inglis, probably his uncle, appears as tutor in 1518 and 1521. He has in 1513 a charter to part of "Caskelpy,' which I take to be Caiplie, the old spelling of which, however, in Wynton's Chronicle is ' Caplawchy.' Alexander married Margaret Barclay of Innergellie, by whom he had Alexander, his heir ; and probably a daughter, who married Nairne of Sandford. In 1540 he has a charter of Tarvit, Caiplie, and half Bawburn, united into the barony of Tarvit. He was slain at Pinkie in 1547.
