User ID: V545.
Agnes married Malise (III) 6th Earl of Strathearn, son of Malise (II) 5th Earl of Strathearn and Matilda.1 (Malise (III) 6th Earl of Strathearn was born about 1261,2 died by 1317 2 and was buried in Inchaffray Abbey, Perthshire, Scotland 2.)
"The only wife assigned to the Earl in any record is a lady named Agnes, the statement that he married a Marjory [Comyn] being founded on a misreading. Wyntoun states that Malise, Earl of Strathearn, married the second daughter of Alexander Comyn, Earl of Buchan, sister of John, Earl of Buchan, and it is not improbable that Countess Agnes was she, and that she was also the Countess of Strathearn who figured in the Soulis conspiracy of 1320. If she were a Comyn, William Soulis, a comparatively young man, would be her nephew, as he was the son of Nicolas Soulis, one of the Competitors for the Crown of Scotland in 1290, who married Margaret Comyn,' sufficient reasons for the Countess's complicity in an attempt to set him on the throne. She is said to have been imprisoned for life."
from Scots Peerage (vol 8)
"He married Agnes, possibly a Comyn, who was probably the countess of Strathearn involved in the Soules Conspiracy of 1318-20. With Agnes, he had four children and was succeeded in the earldom by his son, Mael Ísu."
