STRACHAN, Margaret 1
- Born: About 1556
- Marriage (1): GORDON, James of Drumgask
Other names for Margaret were STRATHAUCHIN, Margret 1 and STRATHAUCHINE, Margrett.1
Margaret married James GORDON of Drumgask, son of George GORDON of Auchmenzie & Tilphoudie and Helenor GORDON. (James GORDON of Drumgask was born about 1544 and died in 1594 in Battle of Glenlivet, Aberdeenshire, Scotland 2.)
Records of Aboyne states:
"On 10th March 1577, the Earl of Sutherland granted a charter to James Gordon, son of George Gordon of Auchmenzie and Tilphoudie, of the lands of Drumgask. James married Margaret, daughter to Andrew Strachan of Tillifroskie, by whom he had George and Patrick."
Elsewhere we are told the marriage took place before 1582. It seems fairly likely that the giving of the charter was on or around the occasion of the marriage.
