5. Hervey de Cunynghame of Kilmaurs
Hervey is famed in tradition for his gallant conduct against the Danes at the Battle of Largs in 1263. He had a charter for Kilmaurs from King Alexander III in 1264, and he founded the collegiate church at Kilmaurs.
According to Burke's Extinct Peerage, Hervey married the heiress of Riddell of Glengarnock, but she probably married his grandson Reginald. Burke's also wrongly attributed a son called Sir William de Cunynghame to Hervey, and described Edward as William's son and Hervey's grandson. [note: apparently Burke's Peerage carries on the tradition]
Edward de Cunynghame of Kilmaurs (#6)
??a son, whose son Robert de Conyngham, Scottish Constable of Carlaverock Castle, was killed in 1299 (this Robert's uncle was married to the Steward's sister).
