It would appear from some information that I have just received form
Scotland which said:-
"On Jan. 10, 1452, Robert Boyd, the great-grandson of Thomas Boyd and Alicia
Giffard, gave his 1/4 inheritance of Yester, Morham, and Duncanlaw to Sir
David de Hay of Yester in exchange for the Barony of Tealing. Robert Boyd
retained the advowson of the collegiate church of Bothans. (Yester writ
So Tealing was Gifford/Giffard Lands (and not Balliol Lands, as I first
thought) came to the Boyd in 1452. However, I have yet to find out what
happened to it after 1484 when James Boyd, 2nd Lord Boyd was killed and his
estates when back to the Crown.
So this MAY EXPLAIN WHY WE FIND BOYDS AROUND THE DUNDEE AREA OF SCOTLAND.
