Sir John Maxwell [4th] of Carlaverock is described in two undated grants
(ratified by the Prior of St.Andrews 23 January 1323-44) to Dryburgh Abbey of the patronage of Pendaitland Church, as son of the late John Maxwell of Pencaitland, Knight, and as ‘Johannes de Maxwell, miles, quondam filius domini Johannis de Maxwell et heres domini Eustachii de Maxwell fratris sui’. In the ratification he is called John Maxwell, Knight, Lord of Maxwell.

He was captured at the battle of Nevills’ Cross, 17 October 1346, and sent to the Tower of London, and probably

he died soon afterwards.
