   Another name for Patrick was Patrick (V) earl of Dunbar/March and Moray.2

  General Notes:

"Patrick was the son of Patrick, seventh earl of March (d.1308) and Marjory Comyn, daughter of Alexander Comyn, earl of Buchan. Initially a supporter of the interest of the English king in Scotland, Patrick transferred his allegiance to Robert I after Bannockburn. Continued to support the Bruce cause after Robert's death mounting an unsuccessful siege of Edward Balliol's forces in Perth in the days after Balliol's victory at Dupplin in August 1332. Patrick was then in command of Berwick castle in 1333 when besieged by Edward III, but surrendered it to the English king after the defeat of a relieving force at Halidon Hill. A short spell in Balliol/English allegiance followed but by 1335 was once more an active supporter of the Bruces and commanded a division of the Scottish army at Neville's Cross in October 1346. Patrick's first wife, Ermigarda [family name unknown], was probably the mother of Patrick's son, John, who died 1354 X 1357. Patrick's second wife was Agnes, eldest daughter of Thomas Randolph, first earl of Moray (d. 1332), and Isabel, daughter of Sir John Stewart of Bunkle. The marriage was childless and after Patrick's death the earldom of March passed to George Dunbar, the eldest son of Patrick's cousin."

  Research Notes:


"The title Earl of Dunbar, also called Earl of Lothian or Earl of March, was the head of a comital lordship in south-eastern Scotland between the early 12th century and the early 15th century. The first man to use the title of Earl in this earldom was Gospatric II, Earl of Lothian, son of Gospatric, Earl of Northumbria. It descended to George de Dunbar, 11th Earl of March, who was forfeited by parliament of his titles & estates in 1435, and retired into obscurity in England. His son Patrick retained a barony at Kilconquhar in Fife.

The title of Earl of Dunbar was resurrected in 1605 for George Home, 1st Lord Hume of Berwick, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and his heirs male.[3][4] This title became dormant[5] only six years after its creation, upon Home's death in 1611. Some of his kinsmen were said to be acknowledged as de jure holders of the title, but none of them ever appears to have assumed the title.[6]

There have been no subsequent creations, however, two other peerages with similar names are Lord of Dunbar and Viscount of Dunbar." 1

Patrick married.

Patrick next married Isabel RANDOLPH aka "Black Agnes", 4th of Moray, daughter of Thomas RANDOLPH 1st Earl of Moray, Regent of Scotland and Isabella STEWART, in 1324. (Isabel RANDOLPH aka "Black Agnes", 4th of Moray was born about 1312 3 and died in 1369 3.)
