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

    Sir Thomas Boyd III was married to the fifth child of Sir John Montgomerie of Ardrossan, variously called Joanna or Janet. In 1406, James Stewart became heir to the throne of Scotland, but was unable to claim it for ninetteenyears as he was held prisoner by the English in the Tower of London. In 1424, he was ransomed, Sir Thomas Boyd III being one of the hostages sent to take his place. Sir Thomas was imprisoned at Fotheringay and Dover castles. Whether he ever returned hom alive we do not know. He was bured with his wife in the old kirk at Kilmarnock, their tomb bearain the inscription:-

    Hic jacte Thomas Boyde, Dominus de Kilmarnock.
    Qui ojijt septison die mensis Julii 1432.
    Et Johanna de Montgomerie eius spouce
    Orate pro iis

    The old kirk collapsed in 1800, and was replaced by the present Laigh Kirk.
