  General Notes:

"Laurence Abernethy, eighth of Saltoun, was probably born about 1400. He was in possession of the lands by 1428, and must have been a man of considerable power and influence, as on 28 June 1445 he was created a Lord of Parliament by the title of Lord SSaltoun of Abernethy. For some reason he does not appear to have used the title at first, as he granted a charter on 13 March 1447-48, under the designation of 'Laurentius Abernethy ex eodem de Rothiemay, miles.' The title itself does not appear in any settled form for two or three generations, the styles of Lord Saltoun, Lord Abernethy, and Lord Abernethy of Rothiemay being used indifferently."

from Scots Peerage (vol 7) 1

Laurence married Margaret.1 (Margaret was born about 1402.)

  Marriage Notes:

"His (Laurence Abernethy's) wife's Christian name was Margaret, as in 1448 Margaret, Lady Saltoun, obtained a notarial transumpt of a charter granted in 1443 by John de Halyburton de Sawlyne in Fife, to his son and his wife of certain lands there, but to what family she belonged is not known. They had issue"
