Sir Partick and Lady Margaret.
George Maxwell's descendants were a powerful and influential family in Renfrewshire. The most notable, and notorious, member of the family was Sir Patrick, who became laird in the 1580s. Like others of his time, he was a cultured and enlightened rascal. On one hand he was a pillar of society, a justice of the peace, a friend of James VI, and the builder of a very fine house; on the other he was a murderer and a wife-beater who contrived through his high connections to avoid getting the punishment which by all accounts he thoroughly deserved.

But his most sorry victim was undoubtedly his own wife, Lady Margaret Crawford. Patrick's tendency to violence in the family is on record as early as 1595 when his own mother, Marion, complained to the Privy Council about his conduct. It went unheeded. Only in later years did it become apparent that Lady Margaret's life with Patrick must have been wretched. In the end, after 44 years of marriage and having presented her husband with 16 children, she deserted him and retired to Dumbarton, across the Clyde, where she lived in great poverty.

Lady Margaret had tried to have her "unkind and unnatural husband" restrained earlier. Sir Patrick's response had been to continue to mistreat her. In 1632, the family was apparently dining in the hall with the minister and other guests when Lady Margaret was struck so badly about the face that she was confined to her bed for six months. No sooner had she recovered than Sir Patrick attacked her again, this time with a sword. He then had her confined once more to her bedchamber where she was allowed only a little drink and half an oat-loaf each day. Her son, Alexander, and his wife, Ann Houston, attempted to look after her but they were thrown out of the house. Shortly after this Lady Margaret made her escape. Sir Patrick, having contrived for some time to avoid being brought to trial, was by now evidently too ill to travel to Edinburgh to answer his wife's charges and must have died soon afterwards.
This sad tale of a family in turmoil unfolded in the elegant surroundings created by Patrick Maxwell himself in the 1590s. The date 1597 is inscribed over his new front door. Patrick Maxwell downgraded the former family accommodation in the old tower house and had a splendid new range built between it and the gatehouse to serve as the focus of his new residence. At the same time new formal gardens and orchards were created around the house to enhance its setting.
