||Odo Hannay, earliest recorded owner, takes
possession of the Sorbie land.
||Latest year by which possession of Sorbie
could have passed to Odo's son*
Ethe. The date of Odo's death is unknown.
||Robert Hannay dies*.
His son Patrick inherits the Sorbie land, but as he is
still a minor, it is administered by his uncle Alexander
||Alexander Hannay purchases the family
property at Kirkdale from Duncan Murray of Whithorn.
[Alexander thus becomes the ancestor of the family
branch known as the Hannays of Kirkdale, from which the
present-day chief descends.]
||Patrick murdered. The Sorbie
property passes to Patrick's son Alexander Ahanna (not
to be confused with Patrick's uncle Alexander Hannay,
presumably for whom the child was named)
||Present tower constructed, probably by
Alexander Ahanna. The structure was referred to in
the middle ages as "The Place of Sorbie."
||Tower and surrounding grounds given to the
Clan Trust by Mrs. Jean Cummings.
