from Scots Peerage 1

Hugh next married Margaret GRAHAM, daughter of Sir John DE GRAHAM of Dalkeith, Abercorn, and and Isabella.2 (Margaret GRAHAM was born about 1310.)

  Marriage Notes:

Note on Margaret's paternity:

"Margaret de Graham, of the diocese of Edinburgh, who had a dispensation, 24 November 1329, legitimising her marriage with Hugh, Earl of Ross, killed at the battle of Halidon Hill 1333, and another, as his widow, to marry John de Barclay 1341, was probably a daughter (of Sir David Graham, son of Sir Patrick Graham and Annabella of Strathearn)."

from Scots Peerage (vol 6) The above source, volume six of Scots Peerage, states the conventional view of Margaret's parentage. However, in a Wikipedia article, Margaret Graham's father is said to be Sir John de Graham of Abercorn. In a footnote, the article cites:

"John P. Ravilious, Queen Euphemia and her ancestry, The Scottish Genealogist, June 2017, vol. LXIV(2) pp. 49\'9652. Prior publications including J. Balfour Paul's Scots Peerage identify Margaret de Graham in error as a daughter of Sir David Graham of Montrose."

The Scots Peerage, volume six, lists a daughter Margaret, sister of Sybilla, for Sir John De Graham of Abercorn. It describes her as follows:

Margaret, said to have been married to Sir William Douglas de Laudonia, the 'Knight of Liddesdale,' though his only known wife was named Elizabeth. (See title Morton.) It may, however, have been a marriage with a Graham which carried to the family of Douglas Dalkeith, Kilbucho, and Newlands in Peeblesshire, and the lands of Esskdale (Caledonia, i. 546, iv. 799; Robertson's Index, 54. Cf. The Scottish Antiquary, xvii. 1187.)."

This is now the parentage being shown on this webbsite. 2 4
