  General Notes:

"The death, at the battle of Durham, of his brother-in-law, John Randolph, Earl of Moray, seems to have added a considerable accession of territory to his heiresses, who were his two sisters, Agnes, wife of Earl Patrick, and Isabella, wife of the Earl's cousin, Sir Patrick Dunbar. The earldom of Moray was a male fief, and so fell into the hands of the Grown, as also apparently did Annandale, though it was then in English hands, but extensive lands in Dumfriesshire, Ayrshire,, Aberdeenshire, and Fifeshire remained, and were divided between the two sisters. Some time after 1346 the Earl assumed the title of Moray, in addition to that of March, and he appears as Earl of March and Moray in Parliament, on 31 August 1358."

from Scots Peerage 1

Patrick married Ermigarda by 1303.1 (Ermigarda was born about 1290.)

  Marriage Notes:

"This Earl married, first, a certain Lady Ermigarda, who, in 1303, and also on 26 June 1304, being then pregnant, received a cask of new wine as a present from King Edward I. The Earl apparently had children by her."

from Scots Peerage 1

Patrick next married Agnes RANDOLPH 'Black Agnes', daughter of Thomas RANDOLPH 1st Earl of Moray, Regent of Scotland and Isabel STEWART, about 18 August 1320.1 (Agnes RANDOLPH 'Black Agnes' was born about 1312 and died after 24 May 1367 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"His (Patrick Dunbar 9th Earl's) second wife, so far as is known, was Agnes, eldest
daughter of Thomas Randolph, Earl of Moray, sometime Regent of Scotland. They had a dispensation to marry, dated 18 August 1320, which states they were related in the fourth degree ; but on 16 January 1323-24 they received a second dispensation narrating that they were really within the third and fourth degrees of consanguinity.Meanwhile they had married, but they were permitted to remain in marriage, and their past and future children were declared legitimate."
