  General Notes:

"2. Nicolas Sutherland, the surname being now fully adopted, ancestor of the Sutherlands, Lords Duffus. (See that title for a more detailed notice.)"

from Scots Peerage (vol.8)


"Nicholas Sutherland, the first of his family who held the lands from which his descendants took their title, was the
second son of Kenneth, fourth Earl of Sutherland, by his wife Mary or Marjorie, daughter of Donald, tenth Earl of
Mar.1 In 1360 his elder brother William, Earl of Sutherland, granted to him sixteen davochs of land in the free barony called Torboll, as named and described, to be held in free barony for the service of one Knight yearly. This grant was confirmed by King David n. on 17 October 1363."

from Scots Peerage (vol.3)

Note: There were several creations of 'Earl of Mar' title which developed from the early Mormaers of Mar into a peerage title. The grandfather of Nicholas was one of the early Mormaers of Mar. 4


Nicholas married Mary LE CHEN elder daughter and co-heiress (Duffus), daughter of Sir Reginald LE CHEN 4th of Inverugie, and of Duffus and Helen.1 (Mary LE CHEN elder daughter and co-heiress (Duffus) was born about 1320.)


  Marriage Notes:

"He (Nicholas Sutherland) acquired part of the ancient barony of Duffus in Moray,
and also, it would appear, lands in Caithness, by his wife Mary, the elder daughter and co-heiress of Reginald le Cheyne and Mary, Lady of Duffus, his wife. Towards the close of his life he appears as Lord of the Castle of Duffus, showing that with his wife's portion of the barony he held the chief messuage."
