Notes for SIR WILLIAM M'CLELLAN OF BOMBIE:

Sir William M'Clellan of Bombie was the nephew of the murdered Sir Patrick M'Clellan. At the request of King James II in 1488, Sir William gathered his followers and defeated "Black Morrow" of Ireland, whose band of marauders was terrorizing the neighborhood of Galloway and Kirkcudbright. Sir William carried the head of Black Morrow on the end of his sword to King James to prove the success of the mission, and bade the King "Think On!" after he had forgotten his proclamation to award the Barony of Kirkcudbright to the M'Lellans. William M'Clellan was Knighted, the borough of Kirkcudbright was made Royal Burgh, and Sir William its first Provost.
