  Marriage Notes:

"In May, 1470, Gilbert Skene is infeft as heir, served and retoured, to Alexander Skene, his father, in the lands and barony of Skene.

In 1481 he married Cristina Mercer, and settled two farms in Wester Skene as her jointure lands, as appears from a Crown charter granted in 23rd May, 1481

'Gilberto Skene de eodem et Cristine Mersare sponse sue in conjuncta infeodatione et post eorum decessum legitimis et propinquioribus heredibus dicti Gilberti quibuscunque de terris de Adloche et Tulivale cum pertinentiis Jacentibus infra vicecomitatum de Aberdene super resignationem dicti Gilberti. Tenendas de Rege. Reddendo jura et servitia debita et consueta.' "
