I see no sufficient authority for the prefix "Lennox" JB

"The Castle of Balloch was
"abandoned before the close of
"the 14th Century for that which
"had been newly erected on
"Inchmuryn by the old
"Earls of Lennox." Orig. Par. Scot. [Origines Parochiales Scotiae]

"At its southwest end in a grove of venerable oaks, are
the ruins of an ancient Castle, once the residence of the
Earls, and afterwards of the Dukes of Lennox" ( Full. Gazr. [Fullerton's Gazetteer])
"A portion of those lands which belonged to the Earl of
Lennox, seem to have remained in the possession of his
family for we find that the Countess Isabella on being released
from Tantallon, took up her residence on the Island of Inchmurren, Loch Lomond. ( about 1450)

Tom Beith
The pronunciation of Tom Bay is so nearly like Tom Beith That there is
reason to infer that the latter is the proper orthography.
