  General Notes:

"Earl William (Douglas, Isabel's father) died in 1384, and his widow, the Countess Margaret, subsequently married Sir John Swinton of that ilk, but bore him no children. By her first husband, Earl William, she had two James Earl of Douglas and of Mar,
and Isabel. Earl James fell in the chivalrous battle of Otterburn in 1388, leaving no legitimate issue; and his sister Isabel succeeded him in the unentailed lands of the house of Douglas, and in the Earldoms of Mar and of Garioch, her mother's heritage. She bore accordingly the title of Countess of Mar, or Countess of Mar and of Garioch, the latter title being constantly
given to her as well as the former."

from The Earldom of Mar 1


Isabel married Sir Malcolm DRUMMOND, son of Sir John DRUMMOND 11th of Lennox and Mary MONTEFICHET. (Sir Malcolm DRUMMOND was born about 1346 and died in 1403 2.). The cause of his death was murdered by Alexander Stewart.


Isabel next married Alexander STEWART (Self-Styled) 12th Earl of Mar & Garioch, son of Alexander STEWART Earl of Buchan, Ross, Lord of Badenoch and Mairead INGHEAN EACHANN. (Alexander STEWART (Self-Styled) 12th Earl of Mar & Garioch was born about 1369 and died on 25 July 1436 3.)
