King of Scots James V grants Earl Eglinton Great Seal charter

In 1503, King of Scots James the Fourth gave his bride Princess Margaret Tudor a Book of Hours be read for every hour every day of the year. The Scots Book of Days renews that tradition. Also for this date see

Helen Campbell Countess of Eglinton married Hugh Montgomery 1st Earl Eglinton [conferred 1507], 3rd Baron Montgomery, Justice General. {The eldest son, Hugh, 3rd Lord Montgomery, and 1st earl of Eglinton, born 1460, being under age at his father’s [Alexander Montgomerie 2nd Baron Montgomery] death, was placed under the tutorship of his father’s uncle, Hugh Montgomery, as already stated. Hugh attached himself to the party of James 4th , and on the accession of that monarch to the throne in 1488, Hugh was made by James 4th one of James 4th’s privy council. On the 14th October 1488, for the good services done to James 4th by Hugh, particularly in the field of Sauchieburn near Stirling on the 11th of June 1488, Hugh obtained a remission for throwing down the house of Turnelaw, and carrying off goods from thence, and for all other offences committed by Hugh previous to the 29th August 1488 preceding the said 14th of October 1488. In 1489 Hugh obtained a grant of the constabulary of the royal castle of Rothesay, and on 4th July 1498, Hugh had a charter of the offices of bailie of Cunningham and chamberlain of the town of Irvine, which offices had formerly belonged to his grandfather, Alexander Montgomery. The grant of the office of bailiary of Cunningham produced a feud between the Eglinton and Glencairn families which occasionally led to deeds of violence, and caused tedious and fruitless appeals to umpires till after the union of the crowns [James 6th & 1st 1603]. In 1507 Lord Montgomery was created earl of Eglinton. After the fatal field of Flodden, 9th September 1513, Hugh was one of the peers who met in parliament at Perth, for the coronation of the infant king, James 5th , 21st of the September 1513 , and Hugh was nominated one of the queen mother’s [Margaret Stewart nee Tudor] counsellors. On 28th October 1515, Hugh was made keeper of the Isle of Little Cumray, for the preservation of the game there, till the king James 5th should be fifteen years of age, and on 21st February 1526, Hugh was appointed justice-general of the northern parts of Scotland, till James 5th should attain the age of twenty-five years [1537]. After the young king’s James 5th, escape from the yoke of the Douglases in May 1528, the earl Hugh and his second son, Lord Montgomery, were among the nobles who attended the first free council held by his majesty James 5th at Stirling. In November 1528 the earl’s house of Eglinton was burnt by William Cunningham, master of Glendairn and his accomplices, and in consequence of the charters, writs, and evidents of his lands being destroyed therein, the king James 5th granted Hugh a new charter of them under the great seal, dated 23rd January 1528. On the king’s James 5th matrimonial excursion to France in 1536, the earl of Eglinton was appointed a member of the regency empowered to administer the government in James 5th absence, the other members being Bethune, archbishop of St. Andrews, Dunsar, archbishop of Glasgow, the earls of Huntly and Montrose, and Lord Maxwell. On December 24, 1540, a remission was granted to Hugh, earl of Eglinton, his two sons, and thirty others, for abiding from the army at Solway. Hugh had lived in the time of five sovereigns of Scotland, having been born in the last year of King James 2nd , and died in the third of Queen Mary. Hugh died in June 1545, 85th year of his age, had.

Lady Margaret Montgomery married William 2nd Lord Sempill d. 1552 had

Robert Sempill the ‘The Great Lord’ 3rd Baron Sempill & Elizabeth Carlisle. SEMPHILL or SEMPLE, ROBERT, 3rd  Lord Sempill (d. 1572), commonly called the great Lord Sempill, was the elder son of William, 2nd lord Sempill, by his 1st wife, Lady Margaret Montgomery, eldest daughter of Hugh, 1st earl of Eglinton. The family from the 13th century were heritable bailiffs of the regality of Paisley, and sheriffs of Renfrewshire, under the lord high steward of Scotland. They frequently distinguished themselves in the English wars, and were employed in important duties of state. Sir Thomas Sempill, father of John, 1st lord Sempill, was killed at the battle of Sauchieburn on 11 June 1488, fighting in support of King James 3rd , and the 1st lord (created by James 4th about 1489), both James 4th and 1st Lord fell at Battle of Flodden on 9 Sept. 1513.
The 3rd lord, or The Great Lord, while master of Sempill, obtained, on 20 Oct. 1533, a charter of the office of governor and constable of the king’s castle of Douglas. Robert succeeded his father William 2nd in 1548. Being a steadfast supporter of the queen regent Mary against the lords of the congregation, The Great Lord was described by Knox as ‘a man sold under sin, an enemy to God and to all godliness’ (Works, i. p. 339). On account of an attack Robert had made on Arran, the lords of the west resolved to take his house of Castle Semple, and laid siege to it in December 1559 (Cal. State Papers, For. 1559–60, No. 395). Leaving Robert’s son at Castle Semple, Robert took refuge in the stronghold of Dunbar, then under the command of a French captain, M. Sarlabois. The latter was in August 1560 asked to give Robert up (ib. 1560–1, No. 428), but declined to do so until SARLABOIS received the command of the king [Darnley] and queen [Mary] (ib. No. 538). Randolph shortly afterwards reported that The Great Lord Sempill had conveyed himself secretly out (ib. No. 550), then that Sempill had retired to his own castle with twenty arquebusiers [a form of gun] lent Sempill by Sarlabois (ib. No. 571), and, finally, that Sempill had gone to France (ib. No. 661); but when Sempill’s castle was taken in November (ib. No. 717), Sempill was still at Dunbar. Sempill was ‘relaxed from the horn’ in March 1561 (ib. 1561–2, No. 15). A rebel was declared by three blasts on a horn, or put to the horn, authorizing warrants of arrest.

Sempill was one of the ‘nobles and barons of the west country’ who on 5 Sept. signed a band in support of Mary [Queen of Scots] and Darnley, in opposition to the Earl of Moray and other rebels (Reg. P. C. Scotl. i. 363), and in the army raised against them held a command in the vanguard of the battle (ib. p. 379); but though a catholic, Sempill, after the murder of Darnley, joined the association for the ‘defences of the young prince’ in opposition to Bothwell and the queen. At Carberry Hill on 14 June 1567 Sempill commanded in the vanguard of the army which opposed the queen [Mary]; and Sempill was also one of those who signed the documents authorising William Douglas of Lochleven to take the queen [Mary] under his charge in his fortalice of Lochleven. In Morton’s declaration regarding the discovery and custody of the ‘casket letters,’ Sempill is mentioned as having been present at the opening of the casket. After the queen’s escape from Lochleven Sempill assembled his dependents against her at Langside on 13 May 1568; and on May 19th Sempill was, with the Earl of Glencairn, appointed lieutenant of the western parts, with special instructions to watch the castle of Dumbarton, and prevent the entrance into it of provisions or reinforcements or fugitives (ib. i. 614–15). For Sempill’s special services Sempill obtained a gift of the abbey of Paisley. Notwithstanding the utmost efforts of Glencairn and Sempill, the castle of Dumbarton continued to hold out, until, on 1 April 1571, its rock was scaled by Thomas Crawford [q.v. DNB] of Jordanhill. Previous to this Sempill, while returning one evening in May 1570 from the army which had demolished the castle of the Hamiltons, was seized by some of the Hamiltons’ dependents, and carried a prisoner to Draffen, whence Sempill was shortly afterwards removed to Argyle (Cal. State Papers, For. 1569–71, No. 962; Calderwood, History, ii. 565). Calderwood states that Sempill remained in Argyle for twelve months, but Sempill was probably set at liberty in February 1570; for when the house of Paisley surrendered to the regent at that time, the lives of those within it were granted on this condition (Cal. State Papers, For. 1569–71, No. 1570).
On 12 June 1572 Sempill had a charter of the lands of Glassford, and Sempill appears to have died in the autumn of the same year. By his first wife, Isabel, daughter of Sir William Hamilton of Sanquhar, Sempill had, with four daughters, two sons—Robert, who predeceased him, leaving a son Robert, 4th lord Sempill, and Andrew, ancestor of the Sempills of Burchell. By his second wife, Elizabeth Carlyle, of the house of Thorthorwald, he had a son John, ancestor of the Sempills of Beltrees [see under Sempill, Sir James]. The 4th lord Sempill was in 1607 excommunicated by the kirk as ‘a confirmed and obstinate papist,’ and appears to have died in 1611.
