   User ID: V536.

Lawrence married Margaret of Glencarnie, daughter of Gilbert (IV) of Glencarnie and Unknown, about 1345.1 (Margaret of Glencarnie was born about 1325.)

  Marriage Notes:

"If these three men were members of the Glencarnie kindred, none of them were the heir of Lord Gilbert IV who had died in exile in England in 1327. It is clear that this position must have been held by Margaret de Glencarnie, who had probably still been in English custody as late as 6 April 1328, and who first appears in the Scottish documentary record in a charter issued at Aberdeen on 3 August 1345. By this date Margaret was already married to Sir Lawrence Gillebrand, a man described as 'my
knight' by Earl Thomas of Mar when he granted the couple a portion of the lands of Echt. This marriage would appear to be a restoration of the personal links between members of the Glencarnie and Mar kindreds that had been evident during the thirteenth century."

"In the autumn of 1365 Sir Lawrence Gillebrand, the husband of Margaret and father of Lord Gilbert V, received a safe-conduct to travel abroad and participate in this crusade."
