  Marriage Notes:

"Henry's wife is referred to in various writs as Margaret the Countess, but it is not certain who she was.(1It is possible she may have been a Comyn.) Earl Henry and Margaret his wife had issue surviving, two daughters only, who became successively Countesses of Atholl. They were
(1) Isabella, and (2) Forflissa or Fernelith"

"Earl Henry, however, had a son, apparently illegitimate, who describes himself as Conan, son of Henry, late Earl of Atholl, in a charter by him to the monks of Lindores giving to them the privilege of taking dead wood and other timber from his wood of
Tulyhen or Tulloch, near Blair Athol. The charter ... may be dated about 1220 ..."
