  Marriage Notes:

"Earl Madach .... appears to have been twice married. If so, the name and parentage of the first wife are unknown. About 1133 he married Margaret, daughter of Hakon, Earl of Orkney ..." (page 416)

"MALCOLM, second Earl of Atholl, was the son of Madach, but probably by a different wife from Margaret, Hakon's daughter, as Harald Maddadson was apparently her only son. In the Liber Vitae of the Cathedral of Durham, a record of the benefactors to that fane from its foundation, his name is inserted, by a writer of the thirteenth century, as 'Malcolmus, filius Madi, comes Athodlie.' " (page 416)
