William married Agnes.1 (Agnes was born about 1398.)


  Marriage Notes:

"In 1448 l he went, along with Bishop Ralston of Dunkeld and Nicholas of Otterburn, to France, there to ratify the ancient league with that country, and seek out a bride for the Scots King. The ratification was successfully accomplished, but there was no French princess available, so the ambassadors proceeded to Burgundy, where they secured the hand of Mary of Gueldres, 'jam nubilem et formosam,' who had been brought up at the court of Philip the Good. Escorted by the Chancellor and a great retinue, the princess landed at Leith on 18 June 1449, and the royal marriage
took place on 3 July. On the Chancellor's return he founded the collegiate church of Crichton, for a provost, eight prebends, and two boys, appointing divine service to
be daily offered for behoof of the souls of the King and Queen and their predecessors and successors, 'pro salute etiam animarum Domini Johannis Crichton patris mei et Christianas matris meae nee non pro salute animse meae et Agnetis conjugis meae.'"
