    Notes 
    • T H Montgomery says that Alexander Montgomerie, son of 1st Laird of Braidstane, died 1505 childless.
      I see some confusion (Paterson vs Harrison) between this Adam Montgomery, and the son of his brother Robert, also Adam Montgomery.
      Both are listed as Laird of Braidstane with death date of 1558. I suspect the Son of Robert is the more correct one.

      Notes from Findagrave
      The ruins of Braidstone or Broadstone Castle (NS 362 531) remained until about 1850. but when Broadstonehall Farm buildings were being rebuilt, the castle was pulled down and its stones used in the building works; the Broadstone Crags, the site of the castle, remain however despite local quarrying. An avenue of trees and the vestiges of a garden had survived until the time of the building of the farm.
      Most baronies had a water mill which was under the control of the laird or lord and to which the tenants were thirled or obliged to go to have their grain ground into flour. A proportion of the grain was taken as payment. Thirlage ended in the late 18th century and resulted in a number of mills being abandoned once market forces took a hold. The name 'Crooked Dam' relates to a small dwelling that once existed near the Powgree Burn and the remains of a mill pond site shows that this building was originally the miller's dwelling and the old barony mill once lay below the site of the crooked dam.
