   User ID: Z263.


Mariot married William 6th Thane of Cawdor, son of Donal 5th Thane of Cawdor and Unknown.1 (William 6th Thane of Cawdor was born about 1440.)


  Marriage Notes:

"William succeeded his father Donald and was 6th Thane of Cawdor. Looking out for a good match for William, his son, he found that living at the old Castle of Dunbeath on the Caithness coast, on the Moray Firth, was an untitled, but very wealthy Chief, Alexander Sutherland, whose wife was a daughter of Donald, Lord of the Isles.

Mariot or Marian Sutherland, wife of William, Thane of Cawdor, died leaving him sons, but the eldest, William, was weak in body, and became Vicar of Barrivan, preferring ihe church to secular life with its struggles. William, the Thane, then fixed the succession of the title upon John, a natural son afterward legitimated, who had married Isabella Rose, daughter of the Baron of Kilravock."
