"Robert Bruce, eldest son of ' the Competitor,' married, as her second husband, Marjorle, eldest daughter and heiress of her father Neil, Earl of Carrick, and so became Earl of Carrick jure uxoris. Their meeting has been differently related by various authors, but the main features of the story are always the same. On Bruce's arrival at Turnberry to convey to the lady the news that her husband, Adam de Kilconquhar, had been slain at Acre, he met the child widow hawking with her attendants. Having delivered his message he was preparing to take leave, when she
ordered her retainers to take him a prisoner to her castle, where, after an honourable captivity of a few days, they were married......

He (Robert) had married as a second wife Alianora. . . who is mentioned as his widow in 1305, and she married, in 1306, Richard de Waleys."
