John married Elyne or Ellen of Mar, daughter of Gratney Earl of Mar and Christian DE BRUS, by 1323.1 (Elyne or Ellen of Mar was born about 1297.)


  Marriage Notes:

"She (Ellen) was married about 1320, or between that and 1323, to John, afterwards Sir John Menteith, Lord of Arran, Skipnish, Knapdale, and Strathgartney. The date is approximately fixed by a charter by King Robert I. granting to her as his niece and to John Menteith her husband, the lands of Strathgartney in free marriage, dated about 1323. These lands had belonged to Sir John Logie, and were taken away from him by forfeiture in 1320. Ellen of Mar's marriage, therefore, probably took place between these dates."
