  Marriage Notes:

"The history of these lands, as illustrated by documents in the Grant charter-chest, is interesting. Margaret Gelybrand resigned them, with others, in favour of her daughter Christian, and Duncan Fraser, the husband of Christian. How Margaret Gelybrand acquired right to the lands does not directly appear, but Christian Fraser, who is referred to as her daughter, is named in an earlier document as an heir of entail of the lands of Glencarnie. Gilbert of Glencarnie resigned his lands into the hands of King David the Second, and received a charter, dated 18th January 1362, of the lands of the barony of Glencarnie, with a destination to himself and the heirs-male of his body; whom failing, to Duncan Fraser and Christian his spouse, sister of Gilbert of Glencarnie, the longer liver of the two, and the heirs-male of their bodies; whom failing, to the heirs-of-line of Gilbert.

On the evidence of this charter and the one quoted above, Margaret Gelybrand seems to have been the mother of Gilbert of Glencarnie, and must therefore have been the widow of a Lord of Glencarnie when she married Sir Laurence Gelybrand. The lands of Mulben and others were therefore probably her dower from the family of Glencarnie, her right to which she had resigned in favour of her daughter, who was already an heir of entail."
