  Marriage Notes:

"He married Margaret Ogilvy, daughter of Alexander of Findlater, and had two sons, George, who succeeded him, and Walter Barclay of Bathnagoak, who married Jonet Forbes." (page 125)

"In 1540 King James confirmed at Edinburgh, on February 27th, to 'Walter Barclay de eodem and Margaret Ogilvy his spouse, the half of the lands of Kirktoun of Drumblat, the third part of Garry, the lands of Newtoun de Garrye with the croft and ailhouse of the same in the Barony of Barclay,' etc.
On May 20th, 1541, Walter Barclay was witness to a charter of Alexander Ogilvy de eodem, signed at Huntlie, and confirmed at Stirling on June 8th.
In the following year, Walter Barclay de eodem and Margaret Ogilvy his spouse are purchasers of lands from John Ogilvy of Durn, by a charter signed at Fyndlater on May 3rd, 1542. 'Moreover for good service and a composition paid the King united the said lands to the lands and Barony of Barclay.' Walter Barclay appears to have died soon after this purchase. His wife, Margaret Ogilvy, became the wife of James Gordon of Lesmoir, retaining the title of 'Lady of Gartlie.' " (pages 128 and 129)

from Family of Barclay

"Walter Barclay got a grant from James V., February 27, 1517, of the lands of Grantuly and many others, all now incorporated into one free barony of Barclay. Margaret Ogilvy, his spouse, was apparently the daughter of Alexander Ogilvy of Ogilvy, who was the son of James Ogilvy of Ogilvy by, as it is said, Agnes Gordon, a natural daughter of the second Earl of Huntly. Agnes was a widow by May, 22, 1517. Alexander Ogilvy's wife was Elizabeth Gordon, daughter of Adam Gordon, Dean of Caithness, and granddaughter of Alexander, first Earl of Huntly. Walter Barclay was thus designed at first 'of Grantuly,' but later 'of Grantuly and Barclay,' or 'of Barclay'. In 1542 John Ogilvy of Durne sold and granted a charter of Little Gowynny in the barony of Baldovy, Sheriffdom of Banff, to Walter Barclay of Barclay and Margaret Ogilvy his spouse : signed at Fyndlettir, May 5, 1542 (Alexander Ogilvy of Ogilvy being one of the witnesses), confirmed at Edinburgh, June 15, 1542, when the King for good service and a composition in money united the said land with the barony of Barclay as part and pendicles of the same {Great Seal, iii., 2690)."
