Marion had a relationship with William CRICHTON of Frendraught, 3rd Lord Crichton, son of James CRICHTON of Frendraught, jure uxoris, 2nd Lord Crichton and Janet DUNBAR co-heiress of Moray.1 2 (William CRICHTON of Frendraught, 3rd Lord Crichton was born about 1443 and died before 23 October 1493 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Margaret, who was proposed as bride for the Duke of Clarence and for Anthony, Earl Rivers. She is stated to have been married to William, third Lord Crichton, and by him had a daughter Margaret, Lady Rothes, but whether in wedlock is uncertain."

from Scots Peerage (vol 1)

"A story is told, apparently on the authority of Buchanan, to the effect that Lady Crichton having died during these troubles (about 1482-83), the King proposed to remove the forfeiture in the hope that Crichton would marry the Princess Margaret, and, as far as might be, restore her reputation, and that not long before they both died they had a meeting at Inverness where Crichton's tomb might still be seen. And Mr. Riddell even goes the length of observing that the last statement may lead in such a singular chain of events to the worst suspicions. But whatever may have been the King's intentions or Lord Crichton's fate, there is no evidence that his forfeiture was ever rescinded or that he married the Princess Margaret." (pages 65 and 66)

"William, Lord Crichton, had also, by the Princess Margaret, a natural daughter, Margaret Crichton, whose chequered career is one of the most curious in the history of her time. She must have been brought up in the royal household, for in the Treasurer's Accounts for the year 1495-96 there are entries of dress purchased for 'Lady Margretis dochtir.' " (page 66)
