  Marriage Notes:

"John Skene. He became servitor to the Earl Marischal ; and, on 29th September, 1629, Joannes Skene, servus comitis Marescalli, is admitted a burgess of Aberdeen. He is said by Mr. Alexander Skene to have 'married, but had no children,' but this is a mistake. He married Helen Durie, daughter of a burgess of Dunfermline ; and, in 29th March, 1639, there is a decreet, John Skene, brother-german to Gilbert Skene of Dyce, and Helen Durie, his spouse, against George Durie, burgess of Dunfermline. He appears, in 1666, as musician burgess of Dunfermline, and had a daughter, Anna Skene, married to Ninian Robertson, Baillie of Kyngarne."
