  General Notes:

Lord Gilbert IV of Glencarnie was probably disinherited of his lands by Robert the Bruce, whom he did not support as a result of Bruce's murder of Comyn. This may have happened at the Cambuskenneth parliament of 6 November 1314.

from article by Alastair Ross 1

  Research Notes:


"The lordship of Glencarnie was located in a strategic position in central Strathspey where it commanded two very important routeways. The first of these ran southwards from Inverness through to Mar, the second ran east-west from the mouth of the Spey to Laggan parish, from where either Atholl or Lochaber could be easily reached. Anyone in possession of the lordship of Glencarnie could effectively monitor all traffic moving along these routes. " 1

Gilbert married.

Gilbert next married Meilloure.1 (Meilloure was born about 1300 and died after 22 April 1341 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"On 6 April 1328 the widow of Lord Gilbert IV de Glencarnie, Meilloure, petitioned King Edward III for the rights of marriage of one of her children, and for that of Margaret. The wording of this document would imply that Margaret de Glencarnie was not a daughter of Meilloure but instead perhaps a product of a previous marriage made by Lord Gilbert IV. "
