Notes for Dominus William de CRICHTON Of Crichton
William de Crichton, dominus ejusdem, succeeded prior to 1357, acquired Dryfesdale prior to 1361, Brunstane and Welshton in 1373 and Bradewood in 1375.

He was dead prior to 1393,

having had issue:

1. Sir John, his successor.
2. Stephen of Carnis or Cairns.
3. Humphrey, who circa 1416, received from his brother, Sir John, a charter of the lands of Bagthrop, the Byres, and others, in the holding of Carruthers in Annandale.

It seems probable that Thomas and Edward were the children of a second marriage, and that their mother was the Margaret, spouse of umquile [the late] William Crichton who, on 20 July 1410, obtained a charter of Gilberton. From one of these two brothers was descended the family of Brunstane, now represented by the Earl of Erne.

4. Thomas
5. Edward.
