IV. 1508 John Nesbit of Dalzell and Margarete Somervell, his spouse, daughter of Lord Somervell, received a crown charter of the lands, 20th November 1508.
1514
 John Nesbit, with consent of his wife, conveyed on 16th August 1514 to "consanguineo meo Georgio Nesbit filio Philippi Nesbit de eodem," the lands of the half barony of Dalzell, reserving portions in Flemington, Hole, and Parkhed.
It is not possible to say what exact degree of relationship is implied by "consanguineo meo." In the present case it amounted to nothing more than a mutual admission that the families were descended from a common ancestor.

(consanguineo meo=kinsman or blood relative not necessarily through their paternal ancestors)

 

V. George Nisbet, second son of Philip Nisbet of that ilk, and his wife, Elene Rutherfurd, received a crown confirmation of the sale to him on 22 August 1513. He married (1) Agnes Hamilton, daughter of ? Hamilton of Broomhill, who died 1575, and (2) Jonet Dalzell daughter of Robert Dalzell of that ilk. The names of his children who have been traced are -
(1.) David. (See No. VI.)
(2.) Thomas, in Flemington, who married and had a daughter Helen.
(3.) George, married and had a son Robert.
(4.) Philip, married and had two daughters, Margaret and Marioune.
(5.) Elizabeth, married John Sleycht. Their marriage contract is dated 7th January and registered 28th January 1550.
George Nisbet received, on 2nd August 1530, from king James V., a respite for nineteen years for the treasonable assistance rendered by him to Archibald, sometime earl of Angus, his brethren and kinsmen and their accomplices, in their treasonable deeds, and for all actions and crimes committed by him. In 1541, with a number of Berwickshire lairds, he became cautioner for John Hume of Blackadder. He was succeeded by his son -

 

VI David Nisbet, who was infeft in the half barony of Dalzell in 1544. He married Isobel Leith, daughter of Marioun Reidpeth and ? Leith. Their contract of marriage is dated 15th September 1559. Isobel Leith's tocher was 300 merks, and she was to be infeft in four husband lands of Nedder Mirdington, in the regality of Dalkeith and shire of Berwick. In connection with Mirdington the Dalzell Nisbets had a prolonged dispute with the earl of Morton, in which they were ultimately successful. Their children who have been traced are -
(1.) Robert. (See No. VII.)
(2.) Jane, married Alexander Greinsheillis in Muirhouse.


In 1544
David Nisbet sold to James Turnour, indweller in Wischaw, the lands of Braidhirst in the barony of Dalzell. He was appointed by Mary of Lorraine, of whom he was a devoted partisan, lieutenant of the border guard of horse maintained during the war with England, which ended with the Treaty of Berwick, and he received an order for payment on the earl of Eglinton out of the readiest of the taxes of the bailiary of Cunninghame of his outlays in connection with that office. Many years afterwards he applied to the privy council to enforce payment of the order. He states that the earl received a charge for payment, which he disregarded. His lordship was in consequence "ordourlie put to the horn . . . . at the proces of the quhilk the said erll hes lyne contempnandlie sensyne." The earl was ordained forthwith to make payment of Nisbet's outlays. In 1561, for invading the lands of David Spottiswoode of that ilk, he and his brother Thomas, along with their accomplices, all Berwickshire lairds, found caution to underlie the law. There is a contract, dated at Edinburgh, 9th February 1562, between David Nesbet, barroun Dalyell, on the one part, and William Aitkin of Dowmill on the other part, regarding the sale by Aitkin to Nisbet of the teinds of Kimmerghame for crop and year 1562. Hew Nesbet, burgess of Edinburgh, becomes cautioner of the baron's fulfilment on his part of the contract. David Nisbet was an active adherent of Mary Queen of Scots, and during the reign of that sovereign received many gifts of escheat of the enemies of the crown. In 1565 he received from Queen Mary a nineteen years' tack of the teinds of the parish of Dalzell. On 10th September 1567 the Lord Regent (Murray) with advice of the privy council "for certane ressonabill caussis and considerationis moving thame tending to the gude rewll and pacification of the cuntre," ordains David Nysbet of Dalzell to enter into ward within the fort of Inchkeith. On 15th June 1574 David Nisbet granted to Robert Nisbet, his son and heir-apparent, a charter of one half of the lands and barony of Dalzell. Among the witnesses are Philip Nisbet, the granter's brother-german, and James Nisbet, burgess of the burgh of Edinburgh. The charter is subscribed "David Niesbiet off Dallziel."
