who obtained from King Robert the Bruce a charter of the lands of Lyoncroce or Lyandcross. The charter has not been preserved; but it is described in an old writ at Pollik as follows:

Ane chartour grantit be King Robert the Bruce to Sir Robert maxwell of Pollock, Knycht, off the lands of lyanderoce, daittit the tent zeir of his reigne [1316].

These lands are in the parish of Neilston, and country of Renfrew.
The greater portion of them now belongs to Sir Hew Crawford Pollok of Pollok, and are held of the Earl of Eglinton and Winton, who is the superior, as Lord of erection of the temporal lordship of Kilwinning. These lands bear the name of Maxwell’s Lyoncroce, to distinguish them from the Upper and Nether Lyoncroces.

Sir Robert was succeeded by his son,

Sir John Maxwell, Knight, third of Pollok, 1330-1360.
