  General Notes:

"Note. Recent investigation shows that previous writers on this pedigree, including Sir William Fraser in his Report (followed by the writer of this article), to the Historical MSS. Comm. (Twelfth Report, App. pt. viii. 78-79), have been wrong in making the first Lord Home a separate personage from Sir Alexander. The mistake arose
from the supposed necessity of finding a husband for Marion, heiress of Landells, and not perceiving that she was really identical with Marion Lauder."

from Scots Peerage (vol 9 Addenda et Corrigenda) 1

Alexander married Mariota LAUDER co-heiress, daughter of Sir John LAUDER younger, of The Bass and Katherine DE LANDELLS, before 1424.1 (Mariota LAUDER co-heiress was born about 1408.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Lord Home married, first, before 1424, Marion, daughter of John Lauder and his wife, Katherine, daughter of William de Landells and his wife Jonet. In 1425 she got sasine of the lands of Swynset, as heir of her mother, Katherine, who must have succeeded to them through her father, who, along with his wife, had a royal charter of these and other lands 4 January 1390-91 (Reg. Mag. Sig., vol. i. new ed. No. 813). Sir Alexander and Marion were related in the fourth degree of consanguinity.. "

from Scots Peerage (vol 9 Addenda et Corrigenda)

The other sisters were Mariota, probably the eldest daughter, who was married to Sir Alexander Home of that ilk"

from The Wardlaws of Scotland

"Lord Home married twice: (1) Mariotta (or Marion), the daughter and co-heiress of John Lauder (d.v.p.1421),(son of Sir Robert de Lawedre of Edrington and The Bass (d. 1425)), by John's spouse Katherine, heiress to her father William de Landells and his wife Jonet. A Papal dispensation by Pope Martin V was issued on 11 April 1426 at St Peter's, Rome, for Alexander de Home and Marion Lauder (de Lawedre) to marry, notwithstanding that they are related doubly in the fourth degree of consanguinity. Subsequent to that Dispensation, Robert, Bishop of Caithness, issued 'Letters' declaring all their offspring legitimate, signed at Edinburgh on 1 April 1428, and witnessed by (the next) Sir Robert Lauder, knight, Lord of Edrington, amongst others. They had at least seven children ...."

Alexander next married Margaret MONTGOMERIE, daughter of Alexander MONTGOMERIE Master of Montgomerie and Elizabeth HEPBURN, before July 1467.2 3 (Margaret MONTGOMERIE was born about 1438.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Margaret, married, as his second wife, to Alexander, first Lord Home."

from Scots Peerage (vol 3)

Sir Thomas, of Langshaw, Ayrshire

Nicholas (indicating that Nicholas by the first marriage had probably died young)
