  General Notes:

"The Earl had also two natural sons and a daughter:

1. William, who had a grant from his father of the lands of Drumlanrig, and who became the ancestor of the
Douglases ot Drumlanrig, Dukes and Marquesses of Queensberry.

2. Archibald, who received the lands of Cavers from his aunt Isabel, Countess of Mar, some time before 1405. In 1412 King James I. confirmed the grant, and Archibald's descendants still possess the lands.

3. Eleanor, who married Sir William Fraser, second of Philorth. They received from her aunt Isabel, Countess of Mar, on 8 December 1404, certain lands in the shire of Banff. From them the Frasers, Lords Saltoun, descend."

  Marriage Notes:

"The Earl's wife was Isabel Stewart, daughter of King Robert II. The dispensation for their union is dated 24 September 1371, but it is not certain whether the marriage
took place at that time or two years later, when 500 was paid on account of the marriage-contract."
