  • Notes 
    • Sir JOHN CARMICHAEL, dominus de eodem, a man of eminent parts, great loyalty, and a faithful subject to queen Mary, who constituted him warden of the middle mar|ches when a young man; in which office he did great service to his country, in suppressing the insurrections on the borders; and being likeways in savour with king James VI. was appointed one of the ambassadors to the court of Denmark, to negotiate the match between the king and princess Anne,* a daugh|ter of that crown, anno 1588, which was soon thereafter happily accomplished; and the same year he was appointed captain of his majesty's guards.

      In 1590, he was sent ambassador to Eng|land to negociate affairs of the highest im|portance with queen Elizabeth;* and in 1598, he was again constituted warden of the middle marches, and in every station of life he acquitted himself with honour, fidelity, and re|putation; but was at last murdered in the ex|ecution of his office on the borders, anno 1600.
