    Family History (from Burke's Peerage):

    A descent for the Boyd's has been claimed from Simon, Brother of Walter High Steward of Scotland 1160 and ancestor in the male line of the Stuart or Stewart dynasty that ruled first Scotland and then England and Ireland as well. A Sir Robert Boyd was certainly living 1205, and one Robert "the" or "le" Boyd, allegedly grandson of Simon, fought for Alexander III against invading Norsemen at the indecisive Battle of Largs 1263. Another Robert Boyd was one of the first to join William Wallace's rising against the dominant English in the last years of the 13th century, but no link between these and the Boyd's below is proven.

    Notes from Sally Walmsley [Geniedash AT bigpond.com] (and her file has his ancestry):

    Was fair like his afther, and became known as Robert Boyt or Boidh, Gaelic varients of the world for Fair. And so the name "Boyd" was developed. He appeared as a witness in a contract between Ralph de Eglington and the town of Irvine in 1205, in which he is escribed as "of Gavin and Risk", properties in northeryn Ayrshire. In the chartulary of Paisley he appears described as nephew of Walter the High Steward. He was the father of the first Sir Robert.
