"Margaret or Marjorie, Countess of Carrick, married first, Adam de Kilconcath,who, in her right, was third Earl of Carrick. Engaging in the Crusade 1269, he went to the Holy Land under the banners of Louis IX. of France, and died at Acre, in Palestine, 1270. By him Marjorie had no issue." (page 426)

"Robert Bruce, eldest son of ' the Competitor,' married, as her second husband, Marjorle, eldest daughter and heiress of her father Neil, Earl of Carrick, and so became Earl of Carrick jure uxoris. Their meeting has been differently related by various authors, but the main features of the story are always the same. On Bruce's arrival at Turnberry to convey to the lady the news that her husband, Adam de Kilconquhar, had been slain at Acre, he met the child widow hawking with her attendants." (page 432)
