"After the death of Lord Hugh, surnamed Sanctus, succeeded his sone, Hugh, the 4 of that name, and the 8 Lord Fraser of Lovet, anno 1450. He went south at the call of King James 2, and was educat a while at Court by meanes of his uncle, Alexander Dunbarr, Earle of Murray, in great favour Avith the King, by whose advice he marryed Margret, daughter to John Lyon, Lord Glames, and at Edinburgh served heir to his father Lord Hugh, aimo 1458. This Margret was one of the Queens Marries, a woman of great witt and singular for currage and magnanimity, so that she was Lyon, nomine et re.

With her the Lord Lovat had issue 4 sones and 3 daughters:

King James 4 had great respect and favour for him, and, as he lived with him, so he diyed with him in the bloody battle of Floudon, Hathornden, the author of the history of the 5 King Jameses, saith that the Lord Lovat was slain with the King in that batle, litle difference it being the Master of Lovat for the Lord.
