    The following is from 'Family Annals' by John Russel, as provided by Sally Walmsley of NSW (Aus):

    Sir Thomas Boyd IV succeeded to the Kilmarnock Estates, but was only to hold them for seven years. he seems to have been an excessively war-like knight. From Dena Castle, he picked an argument with the Stewarts of Darnley, and killed Sir Alan Stewart of Darnley in a fight between Linlithgow and Falkirk. Sir Alan's brother, Sir Alexander Stewart, promptly killed Sir Thomas Boyd in revenge, in July 1439. It is recorded that his wife collapsed and died on seeing his body being carried back into Dean Castle.
