Philip married Janet KEITH, daughter of Sir William DE KEITH Great Marischal of Scotland and Margaret FRASER heiress of Touchfraser. (Janet KEITH was born about 1354.)

Philip next married Margaret DOUGLAS, daughter of Sir James DOUGLAS Lord of Dalkeith and Unknown, before 25 October 1372.1 (Margaret DOUGLAS was born about 1355.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Margaret, married, before 25 October 1372, to Philip Arbuthnott of that Ilk, and had issue. She is usually said to be the daughter of Agnes Dunbar, but as the latter was married a month after her reputed daughter, and is constantly styled the first wife of Sir James, the conclusion seems irresistible that Margaret was a natural daughter."
