  Marriage Notes:

"Gilbert Menzies married Margaret Keith, a daughter of the laird of Troup, by whom he had the following issue :
George, his heir, who married his cousin, Violet Forbes, a daughter of Alexander
Forbes of Pitsligo ; John ; Alexander, who was slain by William Forbes of Portlethen at the Loch of Loirston, on 16th May, 1580;Robert, who had a tack of the lands of Tulloch ; and Andrew, apparently the youngest son, who was admitted a burgess of
Guild, 20th September, 1605. The only daughter whose name has been identified is Isobel, between whom and Alexander Keith, son and apparent heir of James Keith of Auquhorsk, a contract of marriage was entered into, dated 23rd October, 1575. The union was destined to be a short one and have a tragic ending, for the chronicler of Aberdeen has recorded that 'Alexander Keyth of Owehorsk was slayne in Aberdene by the gudman of Balbithan, John Chamer, and departtit the vij day of June, 1584
yeris.' "
