  Marriage Notes:

"This Alexander Irwyne succeeded his father, who was killed at Harlaw on the 24th July, 1411; and on the 16th October of that year his marriage-contract was
completed with Elizabeth de Keth, daughter of Sir Robert de Keth, Marischal of
Scotland, who grants as tocher-gude with the lady the lands of the barony of
Strathekyn in the county of Kincardine. This contract is in duplicate, but although dated at the same place, on the same day, and authenticated by tbe same
witnesses, there is this remarkable difference between the two copies, that, whereas in one the lands given in dower with Elizabeth de Keth are to be held by
Alexander de Irwyn, Lord of Drum, and his descendants, for homage and fealty
to the Keiths Marischal, in the other all reference to homage and fealty is omitted,
and the gift purports to be for the marriage then contracted and for the feud that had existed between the families."
