    BARONY of ROSS of HALKHEAD (IV) 1556

    James Ross, Lord Ross of Halkhead, 2nd but 1st surviving son and heir, had a charter of Halkhead, 13 Sep 1548; present at the convention of the nobility at Stirling, which unanimously approved Queen Mary's marriage to Darnley, and at a meeting of the PC at Glasgow, 5 Sep 1565, when he signed the Band, promising to serve Mary and Darnley against the insurgent Lords; accompanied Matthew, 4th Earl of Lennox, in the vanguard of the Royal Army against Moray, 10 Oct 1565; on the assize for the trial of James, Earl of Bothwell, for the murder of Darnley, 13 Apr 1567; and subscribed the Band of the nobility to Bothwell, 19 Apr following; taken prisoner at the battle of Langside, 13 May 1568. He is mentioned as a Papist in a note of 1570, and was excommunicated, 20 Jun 1573; attended Parliament, 26 Apr 1573, and 20 Oct 1579; Commissioner of Musters, 5 Mar 1574.

    (e) Three natural children by her, who was an Englishwoman, John, Jean or Jonet, and Dorothea, were legitimated, 24 Aug 1546. In the marriage settlement, however, of her son John, 3 Mar 1564/5, she is designated spouse to Lord Sempill; and she had been left infeft in liferent in certain of his lands.

    Note: CP states that James' elder brother Robert was a son by Ninian's 1st wife, but does not say which wife is mother of James. There is no clear indication of a birth year, so it is not clear who his mother is from my sources.
