  General Notes:

"Malise, fiftli Earl of Strathearn, first appears on record as one of those Scottish nobles who, about August 1244 promised to observe the treaty of 1237, already referred to, and he was present in the Parliament of Scotland
in February 1244-45. He was one of those Earls who took part in the coronation of the young King Alexander III.,
and he supported the party of the English King in the change of government on 20 September 1255."

from Scots Peerage 1


Malise married Marjory DE MUSCHAMP co-heiress of Muschamp about 1244.1 (Marjory DE MUSCHAMP co-heiress of Muschamp was born about 1220 and died about 1255 1.)


  Marriage Notes:

"This Earl married, first, Marjory, daughter and one of the coheiresses of Sir Robert de Muschamp. The marriage must have taken place about 1243 or 1244, as on 20 March 1254-55 it was testified that Muriel, their eldest daughter, had reached the age of ten.' The Countess died before the last date ....."

from Scots Peerage 1

Malise next married Matilda, daughter of Gilbert 14th Earl of Orkney and Caithness and Unknown, before December 1257.1 2 3 (Matilda was born about 1230.)


  Marriage Notes:

"Matilda, married to Malise, Earl of Strathearn. This is proved by his charter, dated
at Crieff 12 December 1257, granting to the monks of Inchaffray the advowson of the church of Cortachy, in the diocese of Brechin, and obliging himself and his heirs which he had by his wife Matilda, daughter of Gillebert, late Earl of Caithness and Orkney, to warrant the grant.' Matilda was mother of the next Earl of Strathearn, and it is more than probable that it was through her that the Earldoms of Caithness
and Orkney came to his grandson."

from Scots Peerage (vol 2)



"according to Bishop Tulloch Magnus was succeeded by an Earl Gilbert.Torfaeus
also states that an Earl Gilbert succeeded who died in 1256. This is corroborated by a charter from the Inchaffray Charters at Dupplin, by which Malise, Earl of Strathearn, on 12 December 1257, grants to the abbot and canons of Inchaffray the advowson of the church of Cortachy, and also obliges himself that he and the heirs he has had by Matilda his spouse, daughter of Sir Gilbert, late Earl of Caithness and Orkney, shall ratify the gift. This agrees with the date above assigned to the death of Earl Gilbert of Caithness and Orkney, and he was, according to Torfaeus, succeeded by his son Magnus, who died in 1273, and so on until the Magnus, Earl of Orkney and Caithness, who died about 1350."

from Scots Peerage (vol 7)



"This Earl married, first, Marjory, daughter and one of the coheiresses of Sir Robert de Muschamp. The marriage must have taken place about 1243 or 1244, as on 20 March 1254-55 it was testified that Muriel, their eldest daughter, had reached the age of ten.' The Countess died before the last date, and the Earl married, secondly, before December 1257, Matilda, daughter of the late Gilbert, Earl of Caithness
and Orkney."

from Scots Peerage 1
