  Marriage Notes:

"i. Freskin, Dominus de Duffus. Married Johanna, Lady Strathnaver, and had issue :

(i) Mary, married Sir Reginald le Chen, the younger, with issue,

(ii) Christian, married William de Federeth, Constable of Roxburgh Castle, in 1262, with issue." (page 122)

"Mr. Skene suggests that Johanna, Lady of Strathnaver, the wife of Freskin de Moravia, and who was dead in 1269, was the daughter of Earl John. It is certain that after this date the original earldom appears as divided into two parts, the two daughters of Joanna having a fourth part each, making one-half of the whole, while the other half was apparently given in 1232, with the title of Earl, to Magnus, who is usually designed 'son of Gillebride, Earl of Angus, called Earl of Caithness,' 1232." (page 316)
