  • ID: I18959
  • Name: Margaret BAILLIE 1 2
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1410 in Lamington, Lanarkshire, Scotland
  • Death: 1510 in Dunrobin Castle, Golspie, Sutherland, Scotland 1
  • Note:
    John married by 1342 [sic. 1432?] Margaret (died 1510), a famous beauty, daughter of Sir William Baillie of Lamington. [Burke's Peerage]


    The death date of 1510, if correct, probably indicates a later birth date than I have--although living to be a hundred is not impossible. Burke's Peerage states they were married by 1342-an obvious misprint, but did they mean 1442? or 1432? The incorrect marriage date makes me doubt the 1510 death date. According to Burke's Peerage William Sinclair died in 1460 at the age of 70 (a long life for the times); his only marriage cited is to Margaret and they had at least 5 sons and a daughter; how many men live to be 70 and have their only wife (mother of a large family) live on for another 50 years? I think she might have died before 1510 and been born before 1410 (maybe 1397} and have had Alexander earlier (say 1415 or 1420). But I will leave the dates as is because they correspond to the published source.
