Joined 1745 Jacobite Rising. Captured at Battle of Colloden 1746 and executed.

WILLIAM, 4th Earl of Kilmarnock succeeded his father when but13 years of age.
(1) Robert Boyd was born in August 1689, and baptised on the 24th of August. He died at Kilmarnock in 1760 aged 72. He married Margaret Thompson and had four sons and a daughter. John settled in London, William, northern Scotland, James at Newburyport, MA. Alexander, born about 1720 at Kilmarrnock and Margaret who married Fairservice of Kilmarnock.
He married Lady Ann Livingstone, daughter and sole heir of James, 5th Earl of Linlithgow and Callander, by Lady Mary Hay (daughter of John, 12th Earl of Errol) and had sons, James, Lord Boyd, born April 20, 1725, also Charles and William. Lady Ann Livingstone, wife of the Earl of Kilmarnock, died, at Kilmarnock, September 1747. Of her three sons the eldest had been educated in principles of loyalty, so that he was in the army of the King, opposed to his father in the battle of Culloden. In the rebellion of 1745, in favour of the pretender, the unfortunate Earl of Kilmarnock, deviating from the principles of his illustrious ancestors, fell a sacrifice to the justice of his country. Being but 13 when deprived of the care and instruction of his father, he fell into hands unfavourable to integrity and honour. He manifested, in his youth, a genius not inferior to his high birth and illustrious descent. Finding the family estates much encumbered, he chose retirement rather than public life. A large portion of the patrimony had been alienated, and the income was uncomfortably small. It was his Lordship misfortune to be too soon let loose among the gaieties of youth and as he grew up, instead of applying himself to the dry assiduities of study, he devoted his time to the pursuit of far more expensive
pleasures than his fortune could support. By this course he considerably reduced his already emaciated estate, which may afford a probable reason for his engagement in the services of the pretender, Charles Edward Stuart. He did not join the rebellion at first, but encouraged his tenants to serve the King. After the battle of Prestonpans he joined the rebel army, and was received with marks of esteem and distinction.
He was made member of the privy-council, appointed Colonel of the guards, and promoted to the rank of general in the army. He behaved with courage and resolution, until at the fatal battle of Culloden, he was taken prisoner, or surrendered himself to the King's troops, supposing them to be FitzJames Calvary. On July 28, 1746, he was, with the Earl of Cromarty and Lord Balmerino, conducted to Westminster Hall, where he pleaded guilty to a charge of treason, and submitted himself to His Majesty's mercy and clemancy. On Wednesday, July 30, these nobleman were brought from the tower to receive sentence. When his Lordship was asked if he had anything to say why sentence of death should not be passed upon him, he addressed himself to the Lord Chancellor, and the whole
august assembly, then consisting of his peers, and delivered an eloquent speech, after which, the sentence of death was passed upon him. After this, he presented petitions to the King, and Prince of Wales, and the Duke of Cumberland, wherein he set forth his family's constant attachment to the
Royal interests, his father's zeal and activity in the rebellion of 1715, and also his own appearing in arms when young, under his father, and the whole tenor of his life until this occasion. But the services of his ancestors could not satisfy the demands of justice, and, in accordance with the sentence, he was, on the 18th of August, 1746, beheaded on Tower Hill, his estates and honours being forfeited to the Crown. This dismal catastrophe of the last Earl of Kilmarnock did not entirely extinguish the light and glory of this ancient family, for, happily, his eldest son and heir.


S1 William Boyd, thirteenth Lord Boyd and fourth Earl of Kilmarnock, b 12 May 1705, d 18 August 1746, beheaded on Tower Hill, London bu in St Peters ad Vincula in the Tower m 15/6/1724, Ann Livingston, daughter and heir of James Livingston, fifth Earl of Linlithgow and fourth Earl of Callendar, by
his wife Margaret Hay, younger daughter and sole heir of John Hay, twelfth Earl of Erroll and Hereditary Lord High Constable, b January 1709, d 16 September 1747 and had issue:-
[Lived: ]

- He accompanied his father though but ten years of age when he marched to oppose Lord Mar in 1715. During the earlier part of his life continued, in accordance with his father's principles, to support the House of Hanover. But after the battle of Gladmuir, 21 September 1745, he joined Prince Charles, by whom he was received with great marks of distinction and esteem. He was made a Privy Councillor, Colonel of the Guards, and subsequently a General. He accompanied the Prince in his march to Derby,
and took a leading part in the battle of Falkirk, 17 January 1746. He was present at the battle of Culloden, 16 April, being taken prisoner there in consequence of a mistake he made in supposing a troop of English to be a body of FitzJames's horse. He was sent to London, and with Lords Cromartie and Balmerino was lodged in the Tower. The court was presided over by Lord Hardwicke as Lord High Steward, whose conduct on that occasion was strangely wanting in judicial impartiality. Kilmarnock and Cromartie both pleaded guilty on 1 August 1746, convicted of high treason and condemned to death.

The reasons which induced Lord Kilmarnock to take part in the attempted restoration of the House of Stuart are not known. "Various reasons are assigned for his defection; by some it was attributed to the influence of his wife, Lady Anne Livingstone, who was a catholic, and whose father,
fifth earl of Linlithgow, had been attainted for treason in 1715. Smollett, however, says: 'He engaged in the rebellion partly through the desperate situation of his fortune, and partly through resentment to the
government on his being deprived of a pension which he had for some time enjoyed.' this opinion is supported by Horace Walpole, who mentions that the pension was obtained by his father (Sir Robert Walpole) and stopped by Lord Wilmington. In his confession to Mr. James Foster - a dissenting
minister who attended him from the time sentence of death was passed on him to the day of his execution - the earl himself says: 'the true root of all was his careless and dissolute life, by which he had reduced himself to great and perplexing difficulties.' The persuasions of his wife, who was captivated by the affability of the young Pretender, no doubt influenced him in deserting the Hanoverian cause; but the hope of bettering his straitened fortunes by a change of dynasty must also be taken into account.
His estates were much encumbered when he succeeded to them, and a long course of dissipation and extravagance had plunged him into such embarrassment that his wife writes to him: 'After plaguing the stewart for a fortnight I have only succeeded in obtaining three shillings from him.' " (The Dictionary of National Biography, from Earlest time to 1900, vol II, Ed. by sir Leslie Stephen and Sir Sydney Lee, 1964, p 1010).

His petitions were unsuccessful, principally on account of the Duke of Cumberland professing to believe that he was responsible for the order alleged to have been given before the battle of Culloden, that no quarter was to be given to the English. Lady Anne materially contributed to the success of her party at Falkirk, by detaining General Hawley at Callender House on the eve of the battle.

Grand Master Mason of Scotland 1742. Having been attained for high treason in 1746, Lord Kilmarnock was not succeeded in the family honours by his son and heir, James.

Notes for WILLIAM BOYD:
The following BOYD family records were taken from typescript copies in the Wishart Archival Collection of the Erie County Historical Society, Erie, PA. They were donated to the Society by Elinor Wishart, the daughter of Edward R. Wishart, who compiled the records of his father, the Rev. Marcus Wishart of Waterford:

"Both William and Sarah were born in Ireland, he in 1731, she , 10 years later. When they made the perilous Voyage to America, I do not know, but in the course of time, they were settled in Northumberland Co., PA. There their sons and daughters, nine in number, were born and bred.

When the Revolutionary War broke out, William served his adopted country faithfully and well. At its conclusion, he settled down to ordinary life once more. But rumors of this wonderful new country, with its boundless opportunities, reached him and... in the year 1801, he, with his son David, who had just passed his maturity, rode to the little new town of Waterford, to spy out the land. They must have been most favorably impressed, for they hurried home, and soon the whole tribe of BOYDS, big and little, with all their possessions, were on their way to the Promised Land, on horseback, or in covered wagon.

William BOYD, in the winter of 1801-1802, in the company of Capt. John Tracy and his own sons David, John, and James BOYD, also his three daughters, and James Anderson, the husband of Margaret Boyd, one of William's daughters, settled in and about Waterford.

And here many of their children remain to this very day... All the older ones have passed to their Heavenly Heritage, but their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren still carry on..."
