Children of Francis

Narrative

     Francis inherited Kyncade lands and was constable of Edinburgh Castle. As Laird of Kyncade, he was granted, by Robert Bruce, the Kyncade coat of arms, a castle, triple-towered. The arms of Kincaid, of that Ilk: Gules, a Fesse Ermine between two Mallets in Chief, Or, and a Castle in Base. It seems the castle represents that of Edinburgh where the family were Constables for a long time.

     During the conflict between Robert the Bruce and Edward I, and his son Edward II after Edward I's death, the Castle of Edinburgh was retaken by Scottish forces under Sir Thomas Randolph, Bruce's brother-in-law. Frances had come to Sir Thomas with the information that as a young man, during his father's government of Edinburgh, he had carried on an affair with a young lady in the town, and had made use of a secret path down the almost perpendicular cliff on which the castle was build, in order to conceal his courtship from his father. He offered to lead a surprise attack by this path. On a dark night, Francis, followed by Sir Thomas and a handful of picked men, climbed the cliff, surprised the garrison, and after a bloody battle, captured the castle. Francis was knighted for this exploit, and granted the right, by the Bruce, to bear in his arms, as an honorable addition thereto, a triple-towered castle.

     Francis and his successors were also confirmed in their hereditary constable-ship of Edinburgh, which the family retained for many generations. The Kincaids were always attached the Stuart cause, and they naturally, after the accession of William & Mary to the Throne of Great Britain & Ireland, lost this office.

     The names of Francis' children are not known. One of his daughters married in 1350, Galbraith of Craigmaddie and took as her portion one-fourth of Kyncade lands. She had three daughters, no sons. One daughter married about 1375, a Hamilton, and her part of the land reverted nearly two hundred years later to Kincaid through a descendant, Sir Robert, whose daughter, Lady Margaret married James Kincaid of that Ilk.4,5

He was appointed the Constable of Edinburgh by King Alexander III. The position was very important both militarily and socially, and entailed considerable expense on the holder thereof.
