  2. [S451] Anon, Notes And Queries (London: Bell & Daldy, 1860), (http://books.google.com/books?id=MvrfAAAAMAAJ&lr=), pg 391 - According to MacFarlane, William Knox married first a heiress of Silvyland and then married Margaret, daughter of Patrick Fleming of Barrochan by whom he had a son, William Knox of Silvyland. This is in disagreement with other sources which give the William who married the heiress of Silvyland as the father of the William who marrieed Margaret Fleming..
