About wife of John Ross of Halkhead

John Ross appears on the record as "Jon Rosse de Haukede" on 6 Aug 1447, suggesting he succeeded shortly before. He was appointed heritable constable of the castle of Renfrew.[2]

Source records also provide that his son, Sir John Ross of Halkhead was of age when he appears in tournaments in Feb 1449 (New Calendar), [3] suggesting that he, the son, was born c. 1420. Thus it might be expected that the John, of this profile, was born c. 1395.

His death is not recorded in source but his son appears as Lord of Halkhead in 1451 and it is presumed he died shortly before.

There is no detail of a wife provided in source but a son is noted:

  • Sir John "1st Lord Ross of Halkhead" Ross (bef. 1428 - abt. 1501) married 1) Marjory Mure 2) Mariota Bailliie
