Alionora married Sir Robert DE BRUS 6th Lord of Annandale, Earl of Carrick jure uxoris, son of Robert DE BRUS 'the competitor', 5th Lord of Annandale and Isobel, in 1271 in Turnberry Castle, Ayrshire, Scotland. (Sir Robert DE BRUS 6th Lord of Annandale, Earl of Carrick jure uxoris was born about 1245 and died by 4 April 1304 1.)
"The next year, 1271, the widowed Countess happening to meet Robert Bruce, son of Robert Bruce, Lord of Annandale and Cleveland, hunting in her domains, she became enamoured of his personal charms, and with some violence led him to her castle of Turnberry, where they were married in a few days, without the knowledge of their relations, or the requisite consent of the King. Alexander III. instantly seized her castle and estates, but she afterwards atoned for her delinquency by a fine. Robert Bruce was then recognised as Earl of Carrick in
