I. Patrick Hepburne
(afterwards Sir Patrick, and first Lord Hailes ), the eldest son, had a charter dated 29 June 1444, from William, Earl of Douglas, of certain lands in the lordship of Dunsyre, co. Lanark, which was onfirmed 20 May 1452.

Before his father’s death he took possession of Dunbar Castle without authority; Joan Beaufort, the Queen-Dowager, resided in the Castle, while he held it for some time; but after her death, which took place there on 15 July 1445, he evacuated the place.

- On 25 November 1450, he granted lands in Coldingham and neighbourhood to the monks there, and to this charter a fine seal of arms is attached.
- On 10 December 1450 he had a charter of the lands of Little Lambertoun, commonly called Sherefbygyn, and of the office of Sheriff of Berwick, which was confirmed on 20 May 1452.

On 20 December 1451, he had a Crown charter of the lordship of Halis and other lordships and lands, which his predecessors formerly held in heritage of the Earls of March, who again held them of the Crown in chief; also the lands of Prendergest and others in the sheriffdom of Berwick, with all right in the lands formerly held by George, Earl of March, and forfeited by him:—the whole erected into a free barony to be called the barony of Halis.

- He was one of the conservators of truces with England in 1449, 1451, -3, -7, and 1459.
- He was created a Peer of Parliament by the title of LORD HAILES between 31 October 1452, and 14 June 1453.

He seems to have been alive on 6 December 1482, and to have died shortly after that date.

He appears to have been twice married. Elene Wallace was his spouse at the date of his death; she survived him.

He had issue:

1. Adam, Master of Hailes.
2. Patrick Hepburne (of Beinston)
3. Alexander Hepburne (of Whitsome)
4. John Hepburne, Prior of St. Andrews …
5. Mr. George Hapburne, Dean of Dunkeld …
6. Mr. Patrick Hepburne, Rector of the Church of Lyntoun
7. Margaret Hepburne, married … Patrick de Haliburtoun, afterwards 3rd Lord Haliburtoun Andrew Ker, … first of Cessford, … Archibald Forrester, Lord of Corstorphine
8. Euphemia Hepburne, married to Andrew, son and heir of Dungall Makdowell of Makerstoun.
9. Elizabeth Hepburne, married to William Lundin of that Ilk before 1485, and had issue.
