from Scots Peerage (vol 5)



On 26 April 1414, Pope Benedict XIII. issued a commission to grant dispensation for the marriage of 'William de Ketht' of St. Andrews diocese and Marjorie Fraser, daughter of Alexander Fraser, of Moray diocese. This is probably the wife of Sir William Keith, and the daughter of Alexander Fraser of Kinnell and Lovat, who, as stated above, appears to have married about the same time Sir William's youngest sister, Marion."
