301 (Research):Having been granted a patent of Arms,issued by The Lyon King of Arms , 16th May 1791,which established his position as regards his family connection to Conheath and Closeburn, John attempted to liquidate his late fathers outstanding debts.He was greatly assisted when his cousin ,Capt. John Kirkpatrick of the East India Co Ship, The Henry Addington, contributed his portion of his inherited family lands (two fifths of Nether Glenkiln) to help service the debt.(The Conheath Coat of Arms of 1791 differs to the Closeburn Coat of Arms of 1673 only in that there are in addition to the three cushions of Closeburn,three stars,one in the collar point,and two in the flank gules.The Crest with a dexter armed hand holding a dagger distilling drops of blood remains , as does the motto ,"I Make Sure")

326 (Research):In 1745 the exiled Stuart Kings made another attempt to gain the crown back ,this was the Jacobite rebellion (the 45 ).Bonny Prince Charlie had landed expecting the Scottish nobles to rally to his call. He was mistaken as most Scot's nobles were no longer interested.The new Hanovarian kings had treated them well and there was much to risk joining any rebellion, as usual.The Jacobite's enjoyed success initially but they were routed on Culloden Moor in 1746.

Although most nobles remained out of the rebellion ,the usual practice of sending a son to "hedge their bets"was still going on. One such man was Robert.

The Jacobites had marched as far as Derby and on their retreat north had left Kirkpatrick in Dumfries to defend their march back to Scotland. Yet again a Kirkpatrick was in defence of the south West against the South. Robert was captured. Rebels were generally executed, common men being hanged, nobles however were beheaded ( a custom surviving from antiquity ).

This then was Roberts fate and he was beheaded in 1746. His estates were forfeited and his family forced to flee.Robert was buried in Garrel Churchyard,close by his father and brother.

One of his grandsons became known as William Kirkpatrick of Malaga. This Williams granddaughter Eugenie later married Napoleon III and became Empress of France.

Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland (1904) records the marriage in 1712 of Thomas Stoney and Sarah sister of General Andrew Robinson and granddaughter of George Robinson, a Cromwellian officer, who settled at Knockshigowna, parish of Ballingarry. In February 1851 the Tinnakilly estate, barony of Lower Ormond, of the assignee of Arthur Robinson, a bankrupt, amounting to 1,602 acres, was advertised for sale. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Ellen and John Robinson both held land in Ballingarry parish, while Louisa, Augustus and Ruth Robinson and the Reverend Robinson held land in the parish of Modreeny.
