  General Notes:

"Earl Thomas, Donald's successor, was the last Earl of Mar of the original or Celtic stock. He survived till 1377, after a long career, at one time fighting for honour in the army of Edward in France, at another quarrelling with his native sovereign, David IL, but speedily reconciled; while as a token of favour from David, the latter granted him a charter of confirmation to himself and his heirs whatsoever of the whole lands and lordship of Garioch, to be held by him and his heirs aforesaid as freely as David Earl of Huntingdon (brother of King William the Lion) had held the same in the twelfth century."

"On the death of Earl Thomas without issue in 1377, his sister, Margaret Countess of Douglas, succeeded him in his fief
and dignity as Countess of Mar in her own right; and her husband Douglas assumed the additional style of Earl of Mar......"
